Decorah Eagles Mate 2-3-12 11:05am CST

Hi, Primmies:


Below is the video that captured the mating
ritual between the male and female Bald Eagles.
So it looks like it's going to be another wonderful year of the Decorah Eagles raising
another family. Mom Eagle will be laying her
eggs and once she does, Mom or Dad will
always be with the eggs. Last year they took
shifts so that one of them could go and hunt and take a break  from nest duty while the other
kept the eggs nice and warm. Mom laid her eggs
last year around Feb. 23rd. The Raptor Resource
Project captures everything on the Eagle Web
Cam so we shouldn't miss anything. I have to warn you that they will be bringing all kinds of critters to the nest so if you love bunnies and squirrels you probably won't want to see it. They catch trout from the river and the hatchery below their nest and bring them up, too. When Mom can't leave the eggs they will stock pile the nest with food. There were days last year when they had all kinds of critters in nest but they do that so that they have a nice reserve supply of food, especially when the Eaglets hatch and they have to be fed fairly often.
Enjoy the marvel of this pair mating again for the fifth or sixth year in a row, I'm sorry I'm not sure:


I hope you enjoy watching this pair as much as I did last year. 
Until I get some more stitching done
for you to see the Eagles can keep you
company.

Hugs,

Susan

I so enjoyed watching the eagles last year. It also was a great learning experience for my Granddaughter. With Thy Needle(I believe) sold a cross stitch sampler of the eagles called Soar. I'm was so glad I bought one such a great memory to share with my Granddaughter.
Looking forward to watching these beautiful birds!!!

We used to live in Eagle River Alaska. Named for all the amazing Eagles that live there. I have a picture of two trees. One with about 9 eagles in one and 5 in the other. It was amazing to see all the Eagles. They are so magificent. -Steph-
