Cam turn on date: RRP at work
Happy Fri-yay, everyone! We’re a little over halfway through camera work and we wanted to share a few updates! To date:
- We replaced a camera and added a new camera at the North nest. We’re super excited to share the new views with everyone, since this camera is in a tree to the side of the nest and will give us a brand new perspective on nest activities. We also did some trimming.
- We cleaned cameras and did a lot of trimming at N2B. Two things really struck us: without constant replenishment, the nest has compacted and shrunk, and without constant eagle trimming, small shoots and suckers really took over the branches, including the Skywalk. We were surprised by the amount of trimming that needed to be done!
We’ll start streaming again on October 8 at noon and will be celebrating with a special chat from noon to 3pm at https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/decorah-eagles/. Thank you so much for all of your support and for being patient during our maintenance month: for watching, sharing, learning, and especially for caring. Here’s a look at some of what we’ve done!
