I asked Nora what happened to Mom n Dad Decorah.
She replied .........

4-26-2022
Mom & DM2 decided to move over by Walmart last year and apparently this year they are using that nest again. I had the feeling the hatchery was too busy to DM2's liking, but that's my personal opinion, we'll never know why.
- Nora


I also told Nora they should name this beautiful new pair Cora and Iowa

Decorah eagles
RRP FINALLY POSTED

April 27, 2022 I edited, its long.
Mom Decorah fledged 39 eaglets over 15 years!
Mom and Dad Decorah appear to be healthy and have been hanging out around the nest tree N3 on the Upper Iowa River. They are not incubating egg(s) at the N3 nest.

They do mention the new pair of eagles who took over.
They are BEAUTIFUL!

They'll send up a drone

Mother Goose may jump at any moment.
She's been on high ALERT
She has 5 babies for sure - I saw egg very early today

RRP installed a new cam yesterday, across the creek from the nest. Should give excellent views, as long as the goslings jump from the water side.

CONFIRMED
or seimi-confirmed - NO EGG in Mom/Dad's nest.

Not sure I would call it a jump, but the last one finally wandered below cam view. Hope it's with Mama. :loveheart2:

One of the five didn't make...4 sweet little ones are now with
Mom and Dad.


From the chat (top of page)
TY Courtney (mod) for the update, and for referencing Dr. Rob Bierregaard's quote. It is one I always keep in mind when watching wildlife cams. For those unfamiliar with the entire quote, here it is:

"Please remember that nature is not cruel. Being cruel implies intent to harm someone or something just to do harm. Nature is unforgiving, harsh, and often random. But it's not cruel."

Thanks Beth
Geese are a prey species. The parents have many babies because some will be snacks, like bunnies and squirrels and small birds. That brood could fall prey to eagles or owls, both live there.

6 eggs, 5 hatched, 4 survived.
One guy in RRP forum said - too many C geese anyway!

2 years ago on RRP GSB cam the owl got both falcon chicks. on cam. THAT was rough. Otherwise I accept nature.

Nature goes on. ... somewhere ... over the rainbow .....
Life goes on. Obla dee obla dah .....

I hope RRP allows a real name for this BEAUTIFUL young pair of new eagles.
I like to call them Deke and Cora = Decorah = get it? :biggrin:

:rainbow

Here is the blog from the Raptor project about the geese. It is long, but since everyone is not on facebook,
good stuff!

Here are some highlights from yesterday's goose jump! We arrived at the hatchery around 7am and set up camp under our canopy in rain and 37 degree temperatures. At around 11:10, Mama Goose stood up and jumped for the first time. Not long after she and Papa started calling to their goslings, the eagles at N1 flew over, stooping close enough to the nest to worry us and the geese! Mother Goose came right back and settled over her young until about 12:15, when she took what turned out to be her final jump.
Four of the little goslings wandered a bit before following her off the far side of the nest. Three of them quickly joined their parents, but we couldn't find the fourth gosling and the fifth gosling lingered long enough that we started making rescue plans. We were thrilled when it finally jumped, but concerned when it didn't join its parents and siblings right away.
Since we had two missing goslings, David Kester ran over to beat the underbrush beneath the nest. He quickly found one gosling wandering toward the bridge and gently pushed it under the log, in the direction of the rest of its family. Unfortunately, it went right back up the bank and started wandering toward the bridge, peeping loudly for its parents while ignoring their loud honks: a beacon that should have helped the gosling find them. We managed to reunite it with its family after some mad scrambling through the brush, a low crawl across the river bank, a little rock jumping, and a gentle toss into the creek right in front of its parents. This gosling seemed determined to stay with new Papa David Kester: it took two tries to get it back where it belonged! Sadly, we found the other missing gosling dead. We believe it struck something close to or on the ground after a free fall from the nest. Although we don't know for sure, we think this was probably the second gosling, which did not reappear after its jump.
A few things struck us as we watched the goslings prepare for their leap of faith. They were large, inquisitive, highly mobile, and very agile just a few hours after hatch: very different from altricial birds like bald eagles and peregrine falcons, but very important for hatchlings that have to be up and on their feet not long after hatch! We had more than one white-knuckle moment as they navigated sticks, fell in pockets and clambered out of them, and approached the edge before backing off at the last moment. Despite our promise to remain objective, our hearts were in our throats between each leap and the gosling's subsequent appearance at the side of its parents.
We loved getting to see the goslings in the nest. At times, they seemed curious, apprehensive, and even confused. Two of them appeared to charge off the nest, two tumbled after hitting sticks on their way out, and one exited behind a limb, where we couldn't see it. The remaining goslings seemed fascinated with each jump, although they tended to regroup in the middle of the nest before venturing back out again and we saw several false starts before each gosling finally committed. We heard Mama and Papa Goose honking encouragement, watched other Canada geese fly by, saw the eagles take a semi-interested pass toward the nest, and enjoyed seeing how quickly scavengers showed up to haul away down with which to line their own nests.

A Canada goose nest is clearly the Bed, Bird, and Beyond when it comes to finding high-quality nest bedding for starlings and sparrows!
~How cute was that last line!! (Beth)

The parent geese both came to nest looking around and calling for their 4th offspring which died. I dont know why it died. Evidently RRP on the ground took the dead chick away. Too bad. The parents stayed up there looking a very long time.

VERY LITTLE eagle activity
Seen on cam once in awhile
No interest in restoring nest

Thanks Beth
