The 2009 Eagle nesting season was the first full nesting season I was able to observe/photograph from eggs being laid to the young fledging the nest.

I am now able to observe/photograph the male from the 2009 nesting season establish a territory and court females even though he's still too young to breed but it's not stopping him from building a nest close to my home.

Here is an image of him from April 2009 when he was banded...he was about 1 month old at the time I think.

Here is an image of him from this evening in his nest that he's been working on for a month or so. Very impressive nest considering this is his first one he's built.

It's been interesting watching him and his siblings grow. His sister has a satellite transmitter attached and she's more of a roamer but as of late she's been hanging out about 5 minutes from my home. The male (pictured above) pretty much stayed in the area he's establishing his territory for the last year or so so we figured the fishing was real good (which it is) or he was up to something else...we now know why he stayed in this area for so long.

Great photos and story. With the nests I have in my area, I'm surprised none are getting banded and tracked other than the Decorah birds. It would be great to see one banded and know it came from one of "my" nests. I've never seen anybody other than local birders at the other nests, no DNR or anyone else who could legally do any banding.
Edit-if he finds a mate and keeps that nest instead of moving, it looks like you'll have a beautiful setting fo future pics too.

Great shot, Duane. If I remember correctly, his dad is the one still in the Gardens. Guess he's a chip off the old block.


All I want is just a little more than I'll ever have.
