November 22, 2020: Videos and news from Decorah
We have a little #sundaysweetness for everyone this morning! As the nest shows, Mom and DM2 have been busy! These videos give us a very nice look at both eagles and a little nestoration at N2B. Have a great day, everyone!
November 22, 2020: mom Decorah near N1
November 21, 2020: Early morning – https://youtu.be/zV75RVbrRag. Mom is at N1, which is currently decorah-ated with a single stick. DM2 lands at N2B with another stick, which he places in the nest. A frosty Mom comes to the nest with her own stick at 21:23. She adds it to the growing pile of nest materials before waling up the Skywalk.
November 20, 2020: Just a short clip of gorgeous DM2 and Mom D – https://youtu.be/Ld_Kl6RFfcU. The first 18 seconds of this clip give us another look at handsome DM2. From there on out, it is all about Mom! She looks so beautiful perched against the bright blue sky!

November 20, 2020: DM2 showing off his good looks – https://youtu.be/indQtYNBp1U. DM2 shows off his good looks – and his hugely swollen crop – as he basks in the sun. A number of people asked about the ‘shrugging’ motions he made throughout the video. I believe he might be moving food around. While we normally associate a yawn with a crop drop, his full-body movement could force food out of his crop. He might also be constricting his gizzard to compact some of whatever it was he just ate. He looks about as full as an adult eagle can be!
