The three eaglets are at an awkward stage presently, with gray feathers and lumpy bodies.
And then, soon, they will turn into those graceful birds that we admire so much!

It's still a single parent next with the female doing all the feeding and sheltering.

fascinating.

Why is it sideways???

They seem to be a couple of days behind Decorah, sizewise.

It's a total soap opera over in Decorah. Dad goes missing. Young male lurking around the nest. Mom cooking, shopping, cleaning, feeding...

And he said he was just "going out for cigarettes." Probably on a bender in some dive bar. <shakes head>


My thought exactly, lol.

Dad was really busy feeding the young a year ago. He'll be back next month.

Drama continues in Decorah, Iowa. "Dad" has still not shown up or been found.
but "Mom" is feeding the chicks who are growing at their usual rapid pace.
An unidentified male Eagle has been near the nest and the operators of the
camera and observers are reserving opinions about why.

They are also searching with great intensity for "Dad".

Lordy, it seems like daytime television has infected the Eagle community.

Tuned in a little while ago and Dad is missing. Apparently it happened last year too, so hopefully he'll return. I wonder what happened.

I missed one day and that grey is really starting to show.

Probably those who are interested in the Decorah Iowa eagles and their brand new offspring are already checking the site.
However, in case you missed the excitement, there are 3 hatchlings in the nest now, at 11, 10, and 8 days old.
Cute little things, still in their dress whites. they will be turning grey and entering that adolescent stage soon,
so this is a fine time to see the cuteness and transition.

(Well, not right this minute, as it's dark in Decorah)

More snow in Decorah.

Wow, that camera work on the Decorah nest is getting better every year.
Viewing of the feeding going on now is just remarkable.

I always feel bad for the runt

Don't worry about that nest. There's a video of how the base was constructed (man-made, after the original nest was knocked down by wind/lightning). It's a fortress.


I'm glad to hear it. I didn't remember the details but I knew something happened to the original nest.

Yes, the first two are spunky little fighters.
Somehow I think they will do just fine in their survival epic ahead.
Meanwhile, it's snowing again in Iowa.

D29/30 are totally into sparring.


No doubt D31 will join in on the action in a few days.


I'm surely going to hell for laughing so hard at them

Cute video of D29 and D30 having their first "fight" while D31 is hatching:

This was SO funny. Those two are something else.
