Nestflix for Breakfish! Decorah North and the Mississippi Flyway

October 18, 2021: Mr. North at the North Nest

It’s NestFlix for Breakfish! In Decorah, DNF’s morning repast is interrupted by a juvenile eagle. Could it be DN13 or DN14? We have more information about that in the round-up! I’m sure that a lot of us swooned over close-ups of Mr. North, but I also enjoyed seeing the nest taking shape in Mr. North’s breakfish video. Eagles are early risers, so if you want to see live nestorations this time of the year, you’ll need to tune in at

Friday night Nestflix from Decorah, Decorah North, and the Flyway!

October 15, 2021: Mom on the Maple

Happy Fri-yay! Kick your feet up, grab the popcorn, and join us for movie night: we’ve got Nestflix from Decorah, Decorah North, and the Flyway! In Decorah, Mom graces us with an appearance on the maple. The Decorah North eagles are coping with guests on the North Super Flyway, including a lovely and very plucky subadult. Don’t miss the three-way eagle interaction! The adult-to-adult dinner confrontation could have saved the very hungry subadult’s life, since it stole the dinner prize

Four Migration Stories from the Flyway

We are seeing so many birds on the Flyway that I’m thinking about hiring an air traffic controller! We’ve identified 68 species of birds so far, 82% of which require water-based or water-adjacent habitat to nest, forage, and roost. Why do so many birds stop here? Lake Onalaska is an island of habitat for birds migrating south along the Mississippi River through the American interior. The lake’s islands, sandbars, braided channels, floodplain forests, and mudflats provide birds with everything they

Welcome back, everyone! It’s great to see Mr. North and DNF again and we’re getting tantalizing views of Mom on the maple and bluff up above the hatchery! We’re still not sure where the Decorah Eagles are going to nest this year, but we’ll be watching all three nests (N1, N2B, and N3) and hope to have a boots-on-the-ground report within the next week. Can we remove the dead tree that Mom and DM2 are nesting in right now? Removing

Flyway and GSB Dreaming

September 11, 2021: A turkey vulture at Great Spirit Bluff.

Happy Sunday, everyone! While we ramp up to turning on our eagle cams (if you missed the announcement, we’ll be turning on the Decorah North and Decorah Eagle cams on Saturday, October 9, at 12:00 central time), we’re watching the Mississippi Flyway and Cornell’s migration forecasts. Today, we’ve got bald eagles, sandhill cranes, a quick kickbox, and Newman and a turkey vulture at Great Spirit Bluff. We hope you enjoy these videos as much as we do! Mississippi Flyway October
