~ Videos of The Decorah Eagles from April 11th ~

(Click on the picture to enlarge it, and then click on the words "see more" to expand this post). There are two videos in this post from April 11th. This screen capture is of Dad feeding the eaglets, and from left to right it's, D15, D16 & D17. Many thanks to Jim for making the videos and the screen captures possible!

4/11 (Home alone, more eats, territorial declaration) 4:00 pm CT - Something gets Dad's attention so he takes off from the nest leaving the eaglets home alone. D15 takes some time to preen and Dad quickly returns with a meal. Dad takes a few bites for himself and then begins to offer some to the eaglets. After feeding for a few minutes Dad decides it's time for them to nap and shimmys over them. Mom returns and shortly after that, Dad makes a territory declaration, but Mom does not seem bothered. At 7:23 into the video Mom and Dad do some sweet "beaking" and then Dad gets up and takes off.

4/11 (Mom and Dad feed together, take a break, then have a discussion) 6:15pm CT - Dad is eating and decides to give Mom a few bites. Mom moves closer to Dad, perhaps too close. Dad gives Mom a definite "beak snarl" so Mom then talon-toes over to the front side of the nest to begin feeding the eaglets. Mom feeds for a very short time, walks around the nest, and then takes off. Dad then does an eaglet shimmy for a short feeding intermission. As the scene changes Dad is still nest sitting when Mom flies back in. Mom gives Dad the signal that it's time for her to nest sit, and we see another "beak-snarl" from Dad. Reluctantly, Dad finally gets up and then takes off.

Enjoy! Amazing videos of mom and dad feeding. And dad getting testy with mom. hahaha

It's a very beautiful day today, so beautiful that'll I'll enjoy some spam outside. I hope the decent people of North Korea get to have their fair share of spam when communism finally collapses over there.

Have a good day, have some spam.

The grey breasted warbler is the a$$hole of the bird kingdom. They are terrible terrible birds.
Picture yourself sitting in your favorite restaurant, with your favorite dish set out in front of you, but before you can take that first succulent bite, someone next to you lets an atomic-stink-fart and it completely ruins your apatite. That's the grey breasted warbler. They are beastly, brutish birds.

No matter what is going on in your life, most of you should be able to find some spam to be joyful about. Look to your siblings and neighbors for support; even if you think your spam is terrible, they are likely to have it worse! Honestly, with so much spam going on, your biggest problem is trying to decide what spam you want to take.

*****BIG STEVIE DISCLAIMER*****

Big Stevie would like to apologize for the lightweight joke, this morning. He felt that, since it was Sunday, and all, he should try not to post something with any sexual innuendo, WTF content, or any other general garbage like that. As you all well know, Big Stevie cares! He loves everyone (almost), and we don't know why, but he just does that shit! Thank you!!! Big Stevie hopes that everyone has a wonderful day, and we now return you to your regularly scheduled programming!

Oh! Yes! Big Stevie almost forgot! Here's the aforementioned joke:

A woman decided to have her portrait painted. She told the artist, "Paint me with diamond rings, a diamond necklace, emerald bracelets, a ruby broach, and gold Rolex."

"But you are not wearing any of those things," he replied.

"I know," she said. "It's in case I should die before my husband. I'm sure he will remarry right away, and I want his new wife to go crazy looking for the jewelry!"
Not fun

Thank-you again for your clean, light-hearted jokes. We need some levity in all our lives; it's a remarkable coping mechanism.

Good afternoon, my fellow feathered friends. Warmer temperatures bode well. Hope all have a glorious day. AW, keep watching those chickens.

New pullets typically lay their first egg to be rather small. But after working on an egg farm many years ago with about 1000 laying hens and now with my own flock, I have never seen such a small egg as the one I got yesterday. It is not much bigger than a marble. It might make an omelet for Tom Thumb. LOL

I hope by the time I go to a Cincinnati Reds game this summer that I can find a concession stand that serves spam. If not, then I will make that recommendation to them.

AW, we pulled the little shed we plan to use for our little flock of chickens closer to the house. Hopefully we can get it "chicken ready" by the first of May!!
Our family used to raise broilers many years ago. We kept them 4-5 weeks then they were gone. The layers were a select few that escaped the mass send off...
