Thanks for the airmail, D27! D27 is currently running laps around the Decorah area and may have been in the vicinity of the hatchery and N2B on January 7th, 8th, and 12th! I checked back through our video record and found video on the 8th and 12th showing a juvenile eagle in the vicinity of nest. Was it D27? I can’t see a transmitter but thought I would share a clip and links to the original videos. Given her position on the map both days, it is entirely possible we’re getting a glimpse of her.
Now that winter has arrived in Decorah, we’re very curious to see what D27 does. Will she go or will she stay? If she stays, we’ll try tracking her in the weeks to come. Stay tuned, everyone – and stay safe and warm, D27!
Thanks to Brett and the staff of Eagle Valley for sharing their research, maps, and expertise with us! If you would like to explore the travels of any of the eagles we’ve tracked, go to https://www.raptorresource.org/learning-tools/eagle-map/.
