    Speaking of bald eagles.. Decorah, Iowa

    Baja 252 and I were talking about Einstein and Elsie, the local lake pair that used to live in South Buck Cove.

    Here is another eagle cam that Terry and Martha Summers shared some ten years ago, (when E1 was ready to hatch). A camera site with a great following and a dedicated Classroom Chat.

    Third egg of the season may be on the way.

    Saw this eagle at Palisades at the 14 mm. It sat on the wave break for about 30 minutes. We just sat and watched him.

    Very cool. We have one that frequents our cove. They are a site to see.

    That is pretty cool.

    Any bird people have an idea why there have been so many buzzards over the lake the past few days? I haven't seen any of them pick anything up but they are definitely scouting over the water more than usual.

    Been wondering the same thing. Was doing some shoreline cleaning and found some animal remains, but never see them go down try and get them.

    We had a eagle come by yesterday, he perched in a tree right above where a bunch of vultures had been cleaning up a fish carcass.
    Needless to say the vultures left , then so did the eagle and my dam dog went down and rolled in it

    I would guess the food supply is what's driving the vultures

    We hadn’t been down since October 10th. Was a long winter..... anywho, as I was down on the dock yesterday, I look at the tree line above our house and what do I spot? There sat a big bird in a big nest with a big white head and a partner bringing a fish to the nest. I’ve now been watching them for 2 days fish out in the cove and take home the meal. One was not more than 30 feet from us with a fish in his talons. Really majestic to watch

    Pretty cool, I know there is a few bald eagle nests at LOTO. One famous one in South Buck Cove had a camera on it when "Thumper" owned the property. Einstein and Elsie, but Elsie was injured and is now in a zoo to live out her life.

    Decorah nest had an eventful day yesterday with two hatches within around six hours apart. Third hatch may happen tomorrow. On a fishing theme, watch this pro at work today..

    Nine fish in around 15 minutes.

    Great site that many are enjoying with kids that are out of school right now. I am using it with some special needs and invalid family.

    Three hatchlings now.

    Two hatches on Sunday within six hours apart. (pretty unheard of)

    Last hatch today that went from a 9:19am pip to a 6:50pm hatch. (Also pretty unheard of since a hatch is often a 24-48 hour process)

    Great sites for those sequestering and those with kids out of school right now.
