Remember to join us for our all-day fundraising chat on #GivingTuesday tomorrow at https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/decorah-eagles/. Amy and John will join the chat from time to time and we’ll be happy to take your questions in chat and on Facebook. Look for a chat thread here tomorrow and get any questions you have about the Decorah Eagles, the Decorah North Eagles, the GSB Falcons, or the Flyway ready! If you’d like to learn more about what we did in 2019, check out
Where is D27? Our just a little over two-year eaglet evaded a live search in early November, but she remains near, if not at, her natal nest!

In Decorah, we get great looks at DM2 and a super fun look at Mom and DM2 at N1. While it appears they will nest at N2B instead of N1, they are taking some time to restore the teen pad! At Decorah North, Mr. North and DNF eject an unwelcome Thanksgiving guest and engage in some high speed aerial maneuvers.
