September 22, 2020: Time for camera work!

September 17: Kike Arnal trimming branches at N1.

It’s September! The eaglets have fledged and our eagle Moms and Dads are at their lowest point of attachment to their nests, which makes it the perfect time for camera work.  We don’t have a cam turn-on date yet (although I will post as soon as we do!), but here is a rough outline of our tasks: At N2B: We’ll be replacing three cameras and two microphones at N2B, cleaning everything up, and doing a little trimming around the nest

August 26, 2020: Decorah, Decorah North, and the Flyway

August 25, 2020: DM2 with a bulging crop!

We’re getting questions about the eagle maps. We tend to update them two to three times monthly unless something exciting happens. I’ll put up an update the next time we have data. But in the meantime, we have some videos of a very stuffed DM2, a tween-eagle party at Decorah North, hunting eagles on the Flyway, and a few odds and ends prompted by fan emails. We hope you enjoy these videos as much as we did! Decorah Eagles August

Your Questions, Answered!

Where are D34 and DN12? Can the eaglets hunt on their own yet? When will they disperse? Your questions, answered…as best we can! Where are D34 and DN12? The short answer: we don’t know. Neither eaglet has been seen for several days and we didn’t see or hear D34 when we were in Decorah last week. Most of the eaglets that we have studied slowly widened their explorations prior to dispersal. But some (D25 and D1, for example) began adventuring

July 31, 2020: Nestflix from Decorah, Decorah North, and the Flyway

July 30: D36 at N2B

Grab the popcorn and sit back for some Nestflix (and a link to an article about our peregrine banding work)! We’re starting to see less of D34, D35, D36, and DN12 now that all four tween-eagles have discovered the wonder of flight, but the Flyway is busy – and getting busier – as birds and other animals begin preparing for fall.
