May 8, 2019: Decorah North Nest

We didn’t enjoy today’s wet, windy weather, and neither did the eagles! D32 and D33 are 34 and 31 days old, while DN9 is 38 days old. All three eaglets have a thick coating of thermal down and are rapidly sprouting juvenile feathers, but still need Mombrellas and Poptents in cold, rainy weather. Eagle parents faced down the storm, eaglets did their best to shelter, and everyone got through the day! The weather is supposed to clear up and start

May 6, 2019: Mom providing shade to the eaglets.

We have a Decorah and Decorah North mega-roll for everyone tonight! The eaglets are growing like weeds, diving for shade, chowing down on fish and cowghetti, casting pellets, and watching the world around them. The trees are alive with the sounds of birds establishing breeding territories and attracting mates – most of these videos are as fun to hear as they are to watch. I loved all of these videos, but especially Mom’s heraldic pose, D32 swallowing half a fish,

Before we get into tonight’s Nestflix, I wanted to let everyone know that we’re waiting for our first falcons to hatch at Dairyland Power Genoa! We thought today might be the day, but we haven’t seen hatch yet. You can watch here: https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/dairyland-power-falcon-cams/ and here: http://www.dairylandpower.com/content/bird-cam. We also fixed the Flyway cam yesterday, so feel welcome to stop by for sunsets, sunrises, and migrating waterfowl! The river is still pretty high, so we aren’t seeing some of the regulars we’re

April 30, 2019: Emerging flight feathers on a 26-day old eaglet (D32)

Rain, rain go away! While the eaglets’ thermal down helps keep them warm, it doesn’t shed water very well. This was obvious today as the eaglets cuddle-puddled (in Decorah) and snuggled under Poptent and Mombrella (in Decorah and at Decorah North). We’ve had a few questions from watchers who are worried about development in what seems like an unending season of storms, drizzle, mist, and the dreaded ‘wintry mix’. Are the eaglets spending too much time under their parents to

Day 25: Casting up a pellet

We’ve got your Nestflix from Decorah and the kestrel nestbox! I liked all of these videos, but don’t miss Mom covering the eaglets with grasses, D32’s enormous pellet, the Sibling Sunday and Eaglet antics videos, and the kestrel shift change. While we still see some dominance interactions, the eaglets are also busy playing with nest materials, preening, watching one another and their parents, and tracking objects in and around the nest. They aren’t standing yet, but their footpads and tarsi
