Who is that eagle with a transmitter?
December 28, 2022: D27? This was the only look we got at the eagle's face. D27 turned five years old in April. December 28, 2022: A closer look at the eagle. December 28, 2022: An adult eagle with one of our transmitters this morning.
Our sharp-eyed camera operators found an eagle with a transmitter on near N1 this morning! While we couldn’t get a band or transmitter number, Brett thinks this was most likely D27 based on the eagle’s location and age. We haven’t heard from D27’s transmitter since late November, but we know that she was in Decorah and tends to spend time in an area between the hatchery and Highway 52. She is looking great and we’ll keep searching for potential nests in her preferred spots if we don’t hear from her again.
