Thoughts on the Sub-Adult Intruder at DNN

Intruder at Decorah North Nest

We had an intruder at the Decorah North Nest on March 13th. While Dad was in the nest incubating the pair’s single egg, a roughly four-year old female eagle perched on a limb right next to the nest tree. He responded by covering the egg, softly vocalizing, and ruffling his feathers. The whole encounter lasted about fourteen minutes. I approached two eagle experts about the encounter and received some fascinating information and feedback.
