Mom seems very active today.  Looks like there's some fresh meat in the nest too.

The first video is great around 1:26 - mama feeding baby.

Looks like fox is on the menu today.



Edit:  It's a fox squirrel

Lots of action to be seen daily over the next few months.  Egg 3 has not hatched yet, but it does look like it's starting to crack.

The squirrel is almost all gone.  Time for dad to bring home dinner.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


    Now that mom and dad have two nests, we will need to differentiate between them. The nest mom and dad used from 2007 through 2012 will be called N1, formerly known as The Nest. The nest mom and dad built for the 2013 nesting season will be called N2, formerly know as Yonder Nest.
    Here is a handy map for you to see the nests and the surrounding area. Neighborhood Map.

    Here's some basics about N2 which is 500 feet to the right of N1 when standing at the Hatchery.
    How high is the nest? About 60 feet in a cottonwood.

    How big is the nest? When the cameras were installed, N2 was about 4 feet across, 3.5 feet deep, approximately 460 pounds, and will gain approx 200 lbs every year

    How old is N2? The eagles started building it in Oct. 2012. It was ready for the 2013 nesting season.


    The following information is provided about N1.
    How high is N1? About 80 feet.

    How big is N1? About 6 feet across, about 5 feet deep; it weighs close to 1367 lb.

    How old is N1? The eagles built it in 2007 and used it to successfully fledge 14 eaglets. A previous nest close by fell when a windstorm broke one of the branches.


    Which is the male and which is the female? It is hard to tell the difference unless they are both on the nest. The female is larger than the male. This female has an arched ridge above her eyes that goes further back than on the male, and her eyes are surrounded by a greyish shadow; the ridge above the male’s eye is shorter and seems a little closer to the eye. The male has a line around his eyes that makes them look “beady,” and his head looks “sleeker” than the female’s.
    Here's a bigreddiggy video about the differences. mom and dad differences

    What is the history of this male and female?
    They have been together since the winter of 2007-2008. The female's markings at that time indicated that she was about 4 years old. The male was already mature in 2007. There is no way to know his age.

    Once an eagle reaches maturity at 5 years of age, there is no way to determine their age if they have not been tracked prior to turning 5. Here's a link to the feather changes that occur in an eagle's first years before they mature. Plumage Changes in Sub-Adults

    They successfully hatched and fledged 2 eaglets in 2008, 3 in 2009, 3 in 2010, 3 in 2011, 3 in 2012, 3 in 2013 and 3 in 2014.


    How did they capture D1?
    Here's a link to how it happened. The Capture of D1
    The transmitter has allowed us to see where she has been and where she is currently D1's Map

    What is the area around N2 and N1 like? The Nests are in cottonwood trees on private property near the Decorah Fish Hatchery (operated by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources), on the banks of the babbling waters of Trout Run in extreme northeast Iowa. N1 can be seen from the hatchery, but visitors to the hatchery should keep their distance from the nest tree, both to respect the private property where the tree is located and to avoid disturbing the eagles. Here is a ground-level video of the surroundings, taken in March 2010. This video shows the eagles’ point of view.
    Here is a slide show of the cam installation in fall 2009.

    Why are the eaglets called D##?
    The first place is D for the Decorah, Iowa, nest site. Numbers following the D acknowledge the number of eaglets since 2008. For the 2015, the eaglets will begin with D21.

    Traditional names can create an undue tendency to anthropomorphize. While the human emotion that may be attached to the eaglets is understandable, an alpha-numeric system for referencing them may help us distance ourselves to observe the wonder of wildlife and nature at work.

    This reference system will allow RRP to integrate their findings more easily with other researchers.
