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.
They distinguish themselves through their ability to develop, improvise, and convey reliable concepts within a team setting.
All seminars offered by BVL Seminare reflect the current scientific and practical state of knowledge and experience in the fields of logistics and foreign trade and fulfil the highest quality standards desired.
We create, improve, and directly maintain over 50 nests and nest sites, provide training in nest site creation and management, and develop innovations in nest site management and viewing that bring people closer to the natural world.
