Decorah, Decorah North, and Flyway video round-up!

UME-2 and his stick pony!

What a Tuesday! The warm weather had Mom and UME-2 piling N2B high with stick after cornhusk after stick. Why do we see them some days and not others during this time of the year? Part of an eagle’s adaptation to cold weather involves saving energy, so they often hunker down in sheltered spots and minimize activity during cold weather. But on a nice sunny day with warm weather…look out for those sticks! Also, do not miss UME-2 briefly riding

November 12 Nestflix!

Mom at N2B

We hope you enjoy your Monday night Nestflix! In Decorah, we’ve got a Decorah Shimmy, curious (and funny) tail placement, and serious nestorations at both N2B and the new North starter nest. On the Mississippi river, a male Mallard duck dabbles and swans and bald eagles fly in to roost and float. If you check out the Flyway cam, be sure to have the sound on. The vocals are absolutely amazing!   Thanks as always to our camera operators and

November 3rd Video Round-up!

Mom and UME-2 on November 2nd

Happy Saturday, everyone! Tonight’s videos are all about the Decorah Eagles! Mom and UME-2 have a discussion, cornstalks and sticks come into the nest, UME-2 works on the nest bowl (!), and we get some nice close-ups. We’re getting emails on UME-2’s moniker (Unknown Male Eagle #2). Will we change it? I don’t have a timeline, but he won’t be unknown forever! Thank you so much to our camera operators and video makers for taking time out of their Saturdays
