March 7, 2020: Decorah, the Flyway, and Great Spirit Bluff

March 6: Food fight on the Flyway!

Put your feet up and chill with Nestflix from Decorah, the Flyway, and Great Spirit Bluff! In Decorah, Mom and DM2 copulate and we get some fantastic looks at Mom’s feathers.

February 24: It fledged! Mom and DM2 have just lost a stick over the side!

We have a Decorah Eagles and Great Spirit Bluff Nestflix megaroll for everyone tonight! A lot of people are wondering why Mom hasn’t laid an egg yet. DM2 is, as RRP board member Jim Robison pointed out, doing a great job of bringing her into condition for egg-laying by feeding her, working on the nest with her, and bonding with her on a regular basis.
