Our video mega-roll includes videos from the Decorah Eagles, the Decorah North Eagles, and the Mississippi River Flyway. Eagles are Decorah-ating, preening, snapping sticks, fishing, and forming an eagle heart, while Tundra swans and other birds are migrating, and late fall is rapidly becoming early winter!

A Snow Day in Decorah!

November 6, 2019: A snowy day in Decorah

Break out the hot chocolate! Mother Nature turned Decorah, Decorah North, and the Flyway into a snow globe today, shaking things up with two to four inches of powder. While Mom and DM2 and Mr. North and DNF shoveled snow, the eagles on the Flyway enjoyed a snow day! We hope you enjoyed these videos as much as we did.

Saturday movie mega-roll!

October 25, 2019: Mom and DM2

Grab your favorite beverage, put your feet up, and get ready for our movie mega-roll! In Decorah, Mom supervises DM2’s work, a subadult pays a quick visit, Mom and DM2 have a Beakerson’s moment, and Mom eats a fish. At Decorah North, we get great looks at both Norths and some other inhabitants – including cows! – of the North valley. On the Flyway, pelicans take off, American Avocets forage, and an airplane photobombs some eagles! I loved all of
