I loved all of tonight’s videos, but I was particularly intrigued by the fourth video down. We’ve speculated about our eagles ‘farming’ sticks, or preparing them for removal and transport to the nest. What would that look like?

Happy Fri-yay, everyone! We have your Friday night nestflix mega-roll from Decorah, Decorah North, and the Flyway.

What was that on the Flyway yesterday? It was a beaver! We’ve got a video and more information than you might be looking for – beavers are a lot stranger than I thought. We also have videos from Decorah (be advised: getting up close and personal with lunch is not for the faint of heart or stomach) and a five-way eagle food-fight from Decorah North. We hope you enjoy these videos as much as we did – thanks to our
