May 2021: Mom at the Hatchery

Story and photos by Robin Brumm I spent Memorial weekend with the Decorah eagles. Since it was a multi-day trip, I will spare you a 3-page report, and just tell you a few of my favorite things. On the first day I was there, I was sitting talking to Mom and the eaglets, because what else is there to do??!! Too bad they couldn’t hear me since I was so far away! 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.

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.

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.
