Remembering Bob Anderson

By RRP board member David Lynch Seven years ago today the world lost a great advocate for nature, and we lost a good friend. This is a favorite picture of Bob and I, after we rescued fledgling eagle FOUR in 2014. We were in the process of reuniting her with her sibling D18 in Decorah, Iowa after we found her trapped in a cornfield, unable to fly herself out. That was quite a day, full of memories, laughs and good

Watching Bald Eagles

November 7, 2017: Dad Decorah

This is a flashback post first published on April 26 of 2012. I repost it every year when the eagles begin bringing suckerfish into the nest. For new followers: Bob (Anderson) founded the Raptor Resource Project and was its first director. You can learn more about him here: https://www.raptorresource.org/about-us/remembering-bob-anderson/ Bob took a turn operating the controls at the Bald eagle camera this morning.

March 26, 2021: DN13 eats breakfast!

DN13 is just one day old and seems so vulnerable – that downy head, those tiny features, that wavering stalk of a neck! Mr. North and DNF give their hatchling expert, tender care: gently depositing tiny morsels into its hungry, wavering beak, shuffling over it to keep it warm, and paying close attention to its vocalizations and behavior.

2021 Memory Lane Moment: Mom and DM2 do it again!

Mom at the hatchery

What was one of your favorite 2021 moments? Robin Brumm had several, but I thought I would share this one tonight. During Robin’s August 1st and 2nd Day Trip to Decorah, she saw D37, D38, and D39 flying, sparring, and playing in the air.
