Grab some popcorn – it’s Nestflix time! We have videos from the Decorah and Decorah north nests. The eaglets are 73, 73, and 70 days old in Decorah and very near fledge. We are loving DN12’s post-fledge adventures!
The eaglets at Decorah and Decorah North are all past the halfway point in nest life. They usually fledge at 75 to 80 days, with males often (but not always) fledging first. We see a lot of baby behaviors in the first four to five weeks of nest life: eat, bonk (until about the third week), poop, sleep, repeat. The baby-eees are also exploring the nest and gaining skills, but things don’t really kick into high gear until they begin
We have your Decorah Eagles videos! Sometimes I can pick favorites, but I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of these. D34 and D35 are turning 38 days old today, and little D36 is turning 35 days old. For about the first half of nest life, eaglets grow and gain weight. For about the second half of nest life, eaglets grow flight feathers and start developing the skills they need for life beyond the nest. We’re seeing that right now
Happy Fri-yay, everyone! We’ll keep the news short and sweet: today Decorah eaglets D34 and D35 turn 33 days old and D36 turns 30 days old, and DN12 at the North nest turns 38 days old – about halfway through an eaglet’s 75 to 80 day nest life! We had our first peregrine falcon hatch at Great Spirit Bluff last night, with possibly more to come, and we also have falcon hatchlings at Dairyland Power Genoa and MPL Hibbard. Thank
We have your mega-movie Monday marathon, with videos from Decorah and Decorah North! We had hatch at the Dairyland Genoa nest over the weekend and are pacing the floor at Great Spirit Bluff. Go Nova and Newman! In Decorah and at Decorah North, our not-so-little eaglets are learning to be big kids: attempting to self-feed, bantling (baby mantling), walking on their ginormous yellow footpads, playing house, and being entertained by floppy fledging fish! We hope you enjoy these videos as
