November 4, 2023: Day Trip to Decorah

November 4, 2023: Mom and DM2 working on nestorations at N4

Story and photos by Robin Brumm The last few times I’ve been to Decorah, I haven’t had good luck getting any eagle pictures. I thought I would try again last Saturday, so I got up at dark ‘thirty and headed to Decorah. The last time I had gone to Decorah, I didn’t go down to N4 until late morning, and didn’t see Mom and DM2. I decided that this time, I would go to N4 first thing and hopefully would

September 9, 2023: Day Trip to Decorah!

September 14, 2023: I believe this is Mom

Story and photos by Robin Brumm Saturday was supposed to be sunny and cool. What to do, what to do? Go to Decorah of course! It had been a while since I’d gone to Decorah, and I was wondering what all the eagles were up to. It’s always a gamble going in the “off” season because there is a good chance that you won’t see any eagles, so I had my talons…umm, fingers crossed on the way. As I drove

August 15, 2023: DH2 on the roof of the barn to the east of the hatchery

Story and Photos by Robin Brumm I’ve been to Decorah a few times in the last couple of weeks, but didn’t really get any decent pictures. The weather looked good for Tuesday, so I got up at dark o’clock and off to Decorah I went. I was hoping DH2 would be around so I could get some decent photos. When I got to Decorah, I slowly drove past N1 and didn’t see anything. I got to the stop sign and

July 2-7: A Day Trip To Decorah!

July 2023: DH2 in the N1 tree

Story and photos by Robin Brumm Last week was time for my annual Decorah Vacation to meet with some friends and spend some time with the eagles. This year I definitely did a lot more chatting with friends than taking photos. In fact, I took about the same amount of photos in the five days I was there that I have usually taken in one day in past years. I made it down to N4 a couple of times. I

June 16, 2023: Hatchery parent flying above. I think it was HM (Hatchery Mom)

Story and photos by Robin Brumm I’ve been to Decorah several times the last month and a half, but the last couple times I haven’t seen anyone in the N4 area. Friday was supposed to be sunny but a little cooler, so I decided it would be the perfect day to go. I got up at dark o’clock and headed over to Decorah. By the way, dark o’clock in the summer is a LOT earlier than in the other seasons,

March 4, 2023: DM2 in the nest, Mom on the branch.

Story and Photos by Robin Brumm It had been a few weeks since I had been to Decorah, and I wanted to go check on Mom and DM2, so I got up at dark O’clock and off I went. When I got to Decorah, I drove to N4 with a quick drive through the hatchery area. I noticed an eagle in N1 but I wanted to get to N4 early for a better chance to see Mom and DM2. I

February 11, 2023: DM2 in N4.

Story and photos by Robin Brumm It’s been about a month since I’ve been to Decorah and the weekend weather was predicted to be sunny and mid 40’s…perfect weather for a trip to Decorah! So I set the alarm to Dark O’clock on Saturday, and off I went. When I got to Decorah, I went right to the hatchery. I had seen that Hatchery Dad had spent part of the night on the nest, and I was hoping he was

January 15, 2023: DM2 escorting a subadult out of the area

Story and photos by Robin Brumm It has been quite awhile since I’ve been able to go to Decorah. The weather in the winter doesn’t always cooperate with my work schedule, lol. This past weekend was supposed to be warmer, so on Sunday, I got up early and off I went! When I got to Decorah, I drove through the hatchery first because I heard from a friend that there was a subadult hanging around. I saw an adult in

One of the adults flying over the pond. I think it was HD.

Story and photos by Robin Brumm It has been about a month since I’ve been to Decorah, and I was anxious to go back to see how N4, Mom and DM2’s new nest, was coming along. Since Friday was supposed to be sunny and 50, I decided it would be the perfect day to make a day trip to Decorah. When I got to Decorah, I checked the cam and noticed that one of the hatchery eagles was on the

October 27, 2022: DM2 in N4

Story and photos by Robin Brumm The last time I went to Decorah, I saw DM2 taking sticks into a group of trees, but there were too many leaves to actually see if they were building a nest. Saturday was supposed to be nice, so I decided I would go over to Decorah again now that a lot of the leaves were gone. I got up at dark o’clock, and off I went. I drove through the hatchery when I
