Mom and Dad left N1 in 2012 and started working on N2, about 500 feet away from N1. Neil Rettig came up with the idea of building a nest not far from N2's old location to see if the eagles would adopt it. 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.

Bob was thrilled by the idea, but passed away before it began. 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. It is hard to tell the difference unless they are both on the nest. 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 ruffles make it a super cute and special piece to add to your closet.

Early access to the sale starts today and goes through the 17th.

Numbers following the D acknowledge the number of eaglets since 2008. 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.

FISHING AND HUNTING LEAD FREE We encourage people to use non-toxic alternatives to lead shot and tackle. Frequently Asked Questions The Eagles' Nests Mom and Dad have built three nests on the property, and we built one.

N0 or the first nest, built sometime before 2006, was built by Dad and his original mate, OM. N1 or the second nest, built largely or entirely by Dad and his current mate Mom, was started in late 2006.

Here is a ground-level video of the surroundings, taken in March 2010. The male has a line around his eyes that makes them look “beady,” and his head looks “sleeker” than the female’s.

Here is a bigreddiggy video about the differences: Telling the difference between Mom and Dad. They have been together since the winter of 2007-2008. 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.

Bald eagles can be very sensitive to human behavior, and what may seem innocuous to a human may disturb an eagle; humans are still the biggest threat to eagles.
