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

Eaglets D27, D36, and D36 all phone home!

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,

Our eagles are on the move!

August 16, 2020: D35's Map

Our eagles are on the move! D35 surprised us all by making a big move north on the afternoon of August 12th. At 1:03 PM, she was hanging out near the corner of Highway 9 and Montgomery Street in Decorah – about 1.37 miles from her natal nest. By 4:03 – just three hours later! – she was 49 miles NW along the North Branch of the Root River: a lovely wild area that has the riverine valleys, steep folded

Checking in with the eaglets!

August 12, 2020: D27's map

Where are the eaglets? Up in Canada, D-27 appears to have gotten itchy feet – or maybe itchy wings! She flew over 90 miles south on August 5, but reversed course the next day. By late August 8, she was just 36 miles SSE of Petownikip Lake, this year’s summer island-hopping home. Click on the map to enlarge each image I got curious about D27’s previous summers, so I checked them out on our interactive maps. In 2018 and 2019,
