6-23-21: Eaglet wingercising in N3

Story and Photos by Robin Brumm I went to Decorah again on Wednesday. Since Izzy reported that we had a fledge on Sunday, I wanted to see if any more had fledged, or if I could see the fledgling. When I got to the N3 area, there were 2 eaglets on the nest and both parents in the perch tree near N3. I scanned all the trees in the area and didn’t see the third eaglet. The area is full

6-19-21 Day Trip

Saturday, June 19: Hovering

Story and photos by Robin Brumm I decided to go to Decorah on Saturday, so I got up at dark O’clock, and off I went! The oldest eaglet, D37, should be about 76 days old (give or take a day or two), and within the fledge window.

As I was watching, Mom jumped up, spread

May 15, 2021: Mom, DM2, and the eaglets. Everyone is home!

. Story and photos by Robin Brumm I last went to Decorah 2 weeks ago, so of course, I had to go on Saturday. RRP believes that the eaglets started hatching around April 4th or 5th. That would make D37 about 6 weeks old now. The eaglets grow so fast, I didn’t want to wait too long to go visit. I think I picked the gloomiest day to go, but any time I get to see the DE family is

May 1, 2021: Day Trip to Decorah

5-1-21. Mom feeding D37, D38 & D39.

Photos and Story by Robin Brumm The weekend comes around, so of course, it is time to go to Decorah. Since everybirdy is still in the nest, I don’t have to leave at dark o’clock, so off I went at light o’clock, lol. When I got to N3, Mom was in the nest with the eaglets. I’m guessing they had eaten before I got there because I only saw a head peek up a few times. DM2 was perched in
