NestFlix: Decorah North and Great Spirit Bluff

January 14, 2021: DNF and Mr. North on the North nest

We have your NestFlix from Decorah North and Great Spirit Bluff! I liked all of these videos, but I loved the North Nest bath time with both eagles – I’ve already got a number two favorite video this year! – and Mr. North’s tree trimming. If you want to see bald eagles, don’t miss the eagle icecapades at Great Spirit Bluff. How many eagles can you count? I counted well over twenty on the ice! Thank you so much to

Where are our eaglets? D27, D35, and D36 phone home!

January 12, 2021: D27's map

Where are our eaglets? All three are sticking fairly tight to their current areas, which are about 50 miles away from one another.

Does this look familiar? Mom still rules the roost!

By Raptor Resource Project Director John Howe Where have the Decorah Eagles been? We have an update for you after several weeks of observation in the vicinity of N2B and a relatively new eagle nest within what we would describe as their territory. We will start by clarifying that we are not disclosing the location of this nest at the request of the property owner. The new nest is within the typical bald eagle territorial area of up to 6

January 6, 2020: Decorah North, GSB, and the Flyway

January 5, 2021: DNF at the North Nest

We have your NestFlix! While we wait for John’s report from Decorah later this week, we’re watching the Decorah North Eagles, Great Spirit Bluff, and the Flyway. I liked all these videos, but do not miss the first two Decorah North videos (I love the birdsong and close-ups of DNF), the Great Horned Owls at GSB, and the Northern Harrier on the Flyway. I miss seeing Mom and DM2, but I love seeing the diversity of birds and wildlife at
