Memorial Day Thank You

Today we commemorate Memorial Day with you. A day to celebrate and salute the sacrifices of the brave men and women who died serving in the American armed forces and to honor and remember their courage and service.

May 19, 2020: It’s a Mega Raptor Marathon from Decorah and Decorah North!

May 19, 2020: DN12 at the North Nest

The eaglets at Decorah and Decorah North are all past the halfway point in nest life. They usually fledge at 75 to 80 days, with males often (but not always) fledging first. We see a lot of baby behaviors in the first four to five weeks of nest life: eat, bonk (until about the third week), poop, sleep, repeat.

For about the second half of nest life, eaglets grow flight feathers and start developing the skills they need for life beyond the nest. We’re seeing that right now

May 12, 2020: Where is eagle D27?

May 11, 2020: D27's latest map

Where is D27? The just-over three-year-old eaglet sent a postcard from the Frankville, Iowa area a couple of days ago! Brett wrote: “D-27 completed a cool loop heading ESE into WI for a few days, definitely out of her typical winter range, and eventually returned to the east side of her winter range near Frankville, IA. The visit to Patch Grove, WI was curious, as that is the farthest into WI she has ever been. I wonder if she saw
