If you are reading this, you’ve watched our Bald Eagle cameras. I know they sometimes seem like entertainment and I can’t deny that I’ve laughed, peeked through my fingers, and sometimes cried while watching the greatest reality TV show ever! But our eagle and falcon streams have also built a community that cares deeply and passionately about birds and their habitat, and that has made a difference. Connections matter.

What do we do when we aren’t installing streaming systems? We’ve studied Bald Eagle migration and habitat use, helped organizations around the world monitor and care for threatened and endangered birds, and worked with large companies on improving habitat for nesting raptors. But that is just a small part of our work.

  • We monitor over 50 Peregrine Falcon nests in three states for our Peregrine Falcon banding program, which runs from February through July.
  • We’re tracking Golden Eagles to answer questions about their winter and summer grounds, migration route timing and fidelity, familial ties among Golden Eagles wintering in our region, body burdens of lead and mercury, and HPAI antibodies.
  • We operate two autumn banding stations, one in cooperation with Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. At least six interns a year help us capture, assess, and band hawks: an experiential learning experience that lasts a lifetime!

Thank you so much for your support. Your donations are building where birds of prey soar freely and abundantly. Together we can protect the birds you love!

If you’d like to learn a little bit more about what we do, watch the video below! We’re also happy to answer your questions and I’m looking forward to chatting with everyone on Saturday! – Amy
