D27 and D24 phone home!

D27 and D24 sent valentine’s day cards this week! D27 is currently hanging out south of Nordness, while D24 spent time near Spillville, Iowa. This part of Iowa is eagle paradise – plenty of food, abundant perching places, rolling fields, and steeply folded hills with rivers and creeks flowing beneath them.

D27 went on extensive walkabouts in March and April last year before migrating north in May. We’re curious to see whether she does the same thing again this year. Will the warmer spring forecast by NOAA and the Weather Channel shift her timing? Stay tuned…and thanks to both eagles for phoning home!
