April 18, 2021: Robin sees Mom feeding three bobbleheads!

Story and photos by Robin Brumm I went to Decorah today. I know it is only two weeks since the hatch, and wasn’t expecting to be able to see the eaglets yet, but since it was a nice day and I decided to take a chance and just check. When I got there, DM2 was on the nest. I couldn’t see any eaglets, but it looked like things were pretty quiet. I waited quite a while and saw DM2 looking

April 5, 2021: Mom feeding. You can see something stringy hanging from her beak!

By Robin Brumm Monday was my last day of spring break. Hmm…what should I do?? Go to Decorah, of course! I spent Friday and Saturday and there were no signs of a hatch either day. I know that the eggs usually hatch at 35-40 days old. I had looked at the nest records and noted that for the last three years, the first egg has hatched at 39 days.

I figured if we had eggs there would be somebirdy there. If not, I would be watching an empty nest. When I got to N3, I didn’t see anybody. I wasn’t sure if I was happy about that or not!

9-5-20 ~ Day Trip to Decorah

September 5, 2020: Who is this? We need to get the talon-painting crew deployed!

Story and photos by Robin Brumm I got up at Dark O’clock to head to Decorah. It had been a week since the camera went down and I wanted to see if D36 was still around, and I was going to meet a friend there. When I got to the hatchery, Mom was on the new maple tree. My friend said she had heard squeeing and saw a juvie fly to the southwest before I got there, but she wasn’t
