Decorah Eagles – Decorah, Iowa.

You are watching the Decorah Eagle cam 2023. The male Eagle(slightly smaller in size) and female Eagle in like manner help in the incubation of the eggs. The parents help equally in providing food for their offspring. The typical timeline of events every season for the Decorah Eagles pair is as follows.

As fall comes into full swing in October, this nesting pair begins courtship. Then as time progresses, mating occurs which is around late January to early February. Finally, our favorite time of year, egg-laying! This occurs from mid to end February with cute little eaglets arriving sometime in late March to early April.

The geese have it made, guess they went to the pond to take a dip, have a snack, and honk with the others. Decorah has something for everyone LOL

I thought I had seen a pip at Big Bear Nest but that has not been confirmed. Guess I was seeing some nest debris.

Good evening all. Well I have hot water! Yay! I had left a message yesterday with the plumbing contractor I use so they would get it early this morning. When I called at 8:15 they were about to call me and already had a plumber lined up. He couldn’t get it to light either, or rant er stay lit. Turned out to be a thermopile. Manufacturer’s error. The wires were too close to the burner plate. The burner plate actually burned through one of the wires! So they had to find the part and I ended up with two techs… Read more »

OH NO😭 Jason Kelce will retire as an Eagle!! He will be missed so much💔 Temps dropping fast now, not looking forward to 3 days of chilly rain coming. I tried the Idahoan instant potatoes, didnt like them, in the trash. Mo liked them, but she likes anything, everything! i added butter. blah.

Too bad he is retiring but I can understand wanting to go out a winner. I wasn’t thrilled with the potatoes either. I had the cheese ones. Our temps are dropping 20* into the 50’s for the next few days.

Mom and DM2 at nest N4– the picture you posted.

You asked and we answered! John and Dave took footage of Mom Decorah at N4 yesterday. While we don’t know exactly when she laid egg number one, she is clearly incubating.

Disappointing day. DH and I went to the bowling alley and it wasn’t opened. Don’t know why. We ended up taking advantage of the nice weather here and walked dogs. Came home and watched the Tiger game. Great pictures below. Thx for posting.

The bowling alley lady called Tims phone at 6:00 tonight and said they had a staffing problem. They had his number cuz we kept calling to see if someone would answer and find out if they changed the hours they were open.

Good afternoon. Warm & cloudy. Set up lawn service for this year. I need a cleanup, and then bi weekly cuts. They are not raising the price. – thats a deal!! All this chatter about hot water heaters makes me nervous, so i called a plumber to come take a look. I do have a Bradford White, like jerry recommended, but its gotta be 17yrs old. I was still working, and im retired 16 years. Stuff like this is so totally out of my comfort zone, im scared honestly.

Great news on the lawn service. I need to arrange some to be done before they get too busy. We definitely need yard clean up. I’m hoping the same person who has done our yard the past 2 years will be able to do it this year. Crossing my fingers on your HWH. 17 years is good, more years would be better!
