We know that eagles build multiple nests. We know that the Decorah Eagles chose their new nest. And now we think we may have eggs in the nest. Camera operator Jim W captured a little video that shows Dad incubating, Mom flying in with a new nest rail, Mom turning the eggs, a little 'Decorah Shimmy', and finally a fly-off by Dad.
We don't know how many eggs are in the nest, although it seems reasonable to assume that Mom has laid three eggs again. We estimate first hatch on about March 24, roughly in line with previous years and the date we suspect she began laying eggs. Stay tuned here or on our facebook page for more news. Thanks again to Jim for the digiscoped video!
