November 23, 2020: Eaglet airmail!

November 22, 2020: D36's Map

Thanks for the airmail, eaglets! Can we still call D27 an eaglet? She is a little over three years old right now and is spending her time in a valley system just a few miles south of her natal nest. We keep wondering if she’ll cross paths with sibling D36, but the two haven’t been especially close so far. D36 continues to hang south, moving his foraging area from the Turkey River to the Volga River: also a popular spot

November 2, 2020: D35's Travel Map

Hello eaglets…thank you so much for phoning home! D27, D35, and D36 all sent airmails this week. D27 shifted a little northwest of Decorah, passing within a mile of Bob’s old falcon breeding facility in Bluffton! She’s currently about eleven miles north of the nest – the furthest she’s been since arriving back in town this August. D35 continues to explore east central Minnesota. I checked out her coordinates and was fascinated by the area she’s currently staying in. Her

D35, D36, and D27 phone home!

October 14, 2020: D36's map

Our eaglets sent postcards! As of October 11, D35 was exploring the northern reaches of Elk River, MN; D36 was spending time near Postville, IA; and D27 was back on her wintering grounds just south of the hatchery. While we haven’t seen D27 at the hatchery yet, she’s spending a lot of time just two to five miles south of it – an area with running water, steeply folded hills, and corn and hog farms on the flat lands. We

September 28, 2020: Eaglet maps

Where are our eaglets? D27, D35, and D36 all sent postcards this week! Here is what we know… D35 is still enjoying east central Minnesota, although she has made her way a little south from Princeton/Cambridge to the Elk River area, passing within a mile of our Great River Energy peregrine falcon nestbox. Breezy and Brooklyn could have easily seen her from their vantage point high atop the new nest pole! Unsurprisingly, she’s also spent some time at the large

Three eagles phone home!

August 31, 2020: Three eagles flying high, from the west to the east.

We have your postcards! D27 left the north and arrived back in Decorah on August 29, passing within .20 miles of her natal nest! If you check the maps, you’ll see that she spent a little time near a favorite outdoor school spot/perching place for the Decorah Eagles this summer. Was she close to D36? Not especially! Our little homebody took a trip up to Bluffton, Iowa, in the late afternoon. By the time D27 arrived, D36 was gone! Still,
