I don't know which decorah nest I was watching but the eagle was turning and adjusting themself and almost did a back flip the wind was so strong. I can see that nest with a eagle getting blown off or an egg if they are not laying right with the wind. Poor eagle just stay tight with the wind don't let it blow you head over talons.

And doesn't the trio's nest river look quite high. Much flooding.

Last night I put my dog and my cat in their respective crates in a safe spot in case of tornado. Put my purse in a safe spot near me with my cell phone. But the tornadoes hit north of me instead. Such nasty weather this winter.

Or should I say talons over head. If that eagle moves could go flipping up again. Landing on the egg hard. No incubation exchange in that wind.

Smart they did a nest exchange when the large wind gust let up. Then the incoming eagle came in from a good direction. Timing is everything in the wind gusts.

Thank you, laniebelle for the above link. There is really good information on how eagles survive in harsh weather.
I too have experienced some severe weather similar to eagleslanding and feel much better about my local eagles and their nest.
In fact I have another photo that I will post later. :)

Yesterday, we had Wind Warnings. Strong winds but no storms.
The tornadoes went south of us to Paducah KY area.
I wondered how Mere & Pere's nest would be and had to go by and check on it today.
Good Eagle News!
Can you see her white head?
Last year Mere & Pere fledged 3: Surprise, Lucky & Charm. :D

Philjo, sorry to hear about Pappa the owl. I hope he pulls through.

Glad you all liked the RRP links. John and Amy are both so knowledgeable; I always enjoy listening to them.

Eagleslanding, I have seen the wind really push eagles' tail feathers way up. I think it's a struggle sometimes to keep their balance and not be pushed around too much by the wind. Smart to crate your pets, just in case. Glad the tornado didn't get your area; stay safe.

Sunnybird, glad to hear that Mere and Pere are doing well!

Isn't it great to see E12 and E13 doing so well with their flights and landings! I love seeing them hanging out by each other in the different trees that they are flying to. It seems that these two are the closest, best buddies that I've ever seen in this nest;any thoughts on that?

Hi, Pascale

I'm so excited for you that you were able to return to the nest this year! Are you still in the area? I hope you might be able to share some of your impressions (photos, too) of being "live, on the scene". What a terrific experience to meet Vicki O, too. I'm so happy for you!

Good morning everyone,
As Pascale mentioned, we visited adorable Bailey yesterday and got to meet all the other beautiful raptors, large and small. Thanks Pascale for a wonderful day! :huggie:

Bailey is in a small but beautiful center with very loving people and a great view of the lake. It was great to see children there with parents learning about our raptors :rh:

Here she is with her partner Smedley. I think she is on the right...but Phil, you are the expert :hug:

Along the Mississippi much flooding occurring. The trios eagles nest is along lock and dam 13 which is shut due to the flooding. Also the plains missouri river confluence experiencing horrific flooding. Hope the mississippi flooding doesn't get worse. Not sure if the eagle are affected by this. Can never see the base of the trios tree.

The Missouri river join the Mississipi river in St. Louis, Missouri. Then tbey both flow down the Mississipi all the way to the gulf of Mexico. Wonder what they will do to help the flooding. The Missouri is a very high population for eagles in the USA.

Merci Mimi for the pic of Bailey, so the expert would say, but i'm not one, you know….! :mihihi:
For me Bailey seems to be the left one as if i remember well she had a better good shape than Smedley. On the pic i can see the right one, his right wing seems to be in a bad position and also bad looking so may be this one is Smedley, but the man is also perfectible, you know. :huggie: and the main thing now is that you managed the meeting that could not have been a year ago and that's great for you and Pascale :grhug:
