May 4, 2019: D33

Before we get into tonight’s Nestflix, I wanted to let everyone know that we’re waiting for our first falcons to hatch at Dairyland Power Genoa! We thought today might be the day, but we haven’t seen hatch yet.

March 27, 2019: An unexpected gust of wind at N2B

03/18/19: Pelicans come back!

Tonight’s video round-up features the Great Spirit Bluff cam and the birds of the Flyway! Michelle eats a little breakfeather, Newman copulates on the fly, American White Pelicans raft on ice, and bald eagles skate – or at least stand side by side on the ice. We hope you enjoy these videos as much as we did! I know that I’m having a hard time deciding what to watch right now! Great Spirit Bluff Falcons 3/18/19: Michelle’s first breakfast –
