October 16, 2019: Unknown Male Eagle, N2B, Decorah

Time for Nestflix and chill! Eagles at both Decorah nests seem to be making up for lost time. While the North eagles and Mom Decorah were all seen on their respective territories, we really didn’t see them visiting their nests. That has changed! The eagles won’t start spending most of their time at the nest until just before egg-laying, which usually happens in mid-February. You are most likely to see them at the nest at dawn or at dusk –

October 15, 2019: Mom Decorah

The Decorah and Decorah North Eagles are back! We know we have Mr. North and DNF at the North nest. How about the Decorah nest? We know Mom is there.

D27 visits!

September 19, 2019: D27's map

D27 visited her home territory! On September 12th, we tracked her to just a couple hundred feet from N2B. We’ve seen several subadult eagles since we started working, but we missed her. As Brett noted “D-27 continues to stay fairly close to her natal area, shifting often.” Stay safe, D27 – we hope to see you soon! A thousand thanks to Brett Mandernack and the staff of Eagle Valley for sharing their knowledge, maps, and expertise with us. If you’d
