Where are D36 and D37? The warming weather is bringing eagles north by the tens of thousands, and D36 and D27 are among them! The two sent us eagle airmail from Preston, MN (D27) and Cedar Falls, IA (D36). D27 headed north on March 4.

Where are D36 and D27? D27 is sticking pretty close to home, although she’s starting to wander a little bit as the days lengthen and bodies of water ice out. She spent the coldest days of the polar plunge between the cities of Calmar and Spillville.

December 11, 2020: D35 in flight

It was a beautiful day to track eagles and D35 had been spending her last several weeks near the Burnsville, MN landfill just south of the Minnesota River.
