Eagle D24 Map, 4.10.18

D24 – it was so good to hear from you Saturday! Both D24 and D27 sent postcards from the Decorah area this week. Given the snow and cold further north, we think their stay in Decorah-dise is a good idea! We also like the idea that there are at least three generations of Decorah eagles in Decorah right now: the current crop, D27 from 2017, and D24 from 2016.

D24 finally sent a postcard home! He is currently traveling along the Iowa river just SE of Columbus Junction, Iowa.

I didn’t see either juvie, but I could hear one squeeing. I took a

Eagle Maps

We just updated the eagle maps this morning! While D25 continues to stay near home, D24 is branching out and exploring, although he hasn’t traveled much more than a mile from N2B. Thanks to Brett Mandernack and the Eagle Valley team for collecting and sharing this data with us! We have data for D1, Four, D24, and D25 in the month of July, immediately following fledge. How do they compare? As the image shows, D1, D24, and D25 all have pretty similar
