D32 update from our friends at SOAR

July 12, 2019: D32's cast is removed

A share from SOAR Some good news for Decorah Eaglet D32! His cast was removed after a vet check and new x-ray, and we put a new wrap on him for support. Since D32 was showing more signs of energy and wanted to stretch his wings, we moved him from the ICU crate to a 10’x20′ enclosure. He also has a roomie…an HY18 bald eagle at a similar stage in recovery. D32’s sibling D33 and Decorah North eaglet DN9 are

Minnesota Power and Light falcon cams now on youtube!

Peregrine Falcon Banding, MPL Hibbard 2018

Our friends at Minnesota Power and Light put their falcon cams on youtube! They can be watched on the MPL site at https://www.mnpower.com/Environment/FalconCam or at our site at https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams/minnesota-power-and-light-falcons/. We usually begin seeing falcons in mid-February at Cohasset. Falcons are often seen through the winter in Duluth, so we might see the Hibbard falcons sooner than that. For a look at Duluth’s December-February peregrine sightings, click this link: http://bit.ly/2sIhmX3. If you see a falcon on either of these cams, please

A Reflection and a Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving 2018

November 23rd would have been Bob Anderson’s birthday. I assume that our friend and founder would finally have achieved his dream of retirement – or at least semi-retirement – and be busy with his book by now.

For those of you who don’t
