Starter Nest For The North Eagles

Kike Arnal at the North Nest

We are working on a starter nest for the North Eagles this week! Here is a link to the story: http://www.kwwl.com/story/39133159/2018/09/20/north-nest-coming-back-after-a-tragic-end. Mrs. North has given us a look-see, followed the river, perched in favorite trees, and caught a few fish. We’ve also seen Sandhill Cranes, Red-Headed Woodpeckers, Yellow-shafted Flickers, deer, and cattle, just to name a few. The valley of the Norths is a busy place! Pictured is photographer, researcher, and eagle-nest whisperer Kike Arnal. Kike is building the platform

The Decorah Eagles and GSB falcons are leaving Ustream!

Ustream Announcement

After seven wonderful years, the Decorah Eagles and GSB Falcons will be leaving Ustream/IBM Video. You will still be able to watch both cams at our website (https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/decorah-eagles/ and https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/gsb-falcons/) and at Explore.org (https://explore.org/livecams/bald-eagles/decorah-eagles and https://explore.org/livecams/falcons/falcon-nest-cam). Why are we leaving? IBM Video will begin charging for streaming and storage this month. Since we are able to offer an ads-free secure video stream via our website and Explore.org, we decided it was time to leave. Many thanks to all of you

Decorah: Mom, DM, Sightings

Can you find the eagle in this picture?

What’s going on in Decorah? Watchers know that eagle sightings are few and far between this time of the year. This is pretty normal – eagles in the Midwest are often more loosely bound to their nests and territories in late summer and early fall, which is one of the reasons we chose it for camera work. DM is still in the area. While he hasn’t been seen near N2B, he has been seen perched near and flying by N1 

Announcing: Decorah Cam Shutdown

Mom at N1 in August of 2018

We will be shutting down the Decorah cams for maintenance at 5:00PM CT on Saturday, September 15th. Please feel welcome to join our mods for one last chat from noon to 5pm that day! While we don’t have an exact turn-on date yet, we’ll get the cams back on as quickly as we can – we know that everyone wants to see what happens this fall. Thank you so much for watching with us through this year of tears and
