D27's map: April 8, 2019

Thanks for writing, D27! D27’s latest postcard puts her back in the Decorah area after a brief sojourn to the Mississippi River. On April 4, we tracked her to within about 2600 feet of her natal nest. She wandered throughout the day, ending up about 4.5 miles NW of her nest at 9:42PM. She did not go near her natal nest on the 5th, which means that it was not her we spotted on camera…although we can’t yet rule out

Armed with the latest coordinates from Brett, we decided to start at the hatchery looking for her radio signal. DM2 greeted us and flew overhead as we pulled in, which we took as a good sign. John quickly spotted

Where is eagle D27? Despite the cold weather, she continues to hang out in the Decorah area. She’s spending a lot of time on the Upper Iowa and has been in the vicinity of her natal nest. We hope to go looking for her in the next week or two, since we would love to see how she’s doing and what she looks like! Thanks for the airmail, D27, and please stay safe, warm, and well-fed! I got to thinking

D27 Update

D27 Map from January 20. 2019

Thanks for the airmail, D27! D27 is currently running laps around the Decorah area and may have been in the vicinity of the hatchery and N2B on January 7th, 8th, and 12th! I checked back through our video record and found video on the 8th and 12th showing a juvenile eagle in the vicinity of nest. Was it D27? I can’t see a transmitter but thought I would share a clip and links to the original videos. Given her position
