We watch three nests the most.
Southwest Florida-- by North Fort Myers
Berry College-- Rome, Georgia, near Atlanta
Decorah, Iowa (The one we visited last month)
And, we recently added a new one at the Alcoa factory in Bettendorf, Iowa.
The nice thing about having these nests scattered south to north is that the southern eggs are laid and hatch first. That way, when we have the southern ones in the Galoot stage and fledging, we have the ones further north hatching and Bandidos.
Watching them is like a a mini soap opera. Each nest has its own issues.
