Decorah Iowa Eagles
April 5, 2011 by staff
Decorah Iowa Eagles, Two words: eaglets. Two more words: nest cam. How can anyone resist? Thank you to the Raptor Resource Project, you can watch the antics of a few, um, eagle in their nest fuzzbald in Decorah, Iowa, in the comfort of your computer. Even when the snacks of bloody carrion, young raptors are adorable. (I’m sitting here, mesmerized for several minutes now.)
Created by a bald eagle pair has been together since late 2007, the nest perched 80 feet to a poplar tree “located on private property, near Decorah hatchery fish (operated by the Department of Iowa Natural Resources), on the banks of the babbling waters of Trout Run to the far northern Iowa, “according to the website that distributes the flow camera. The first pair avian eaglet in 2011 broke out of his shell a few days ago, April 2; the Raptor Resource Project put some clips so you can relive the experience here. The novice brother soon to follow, join the family on April 3. If you’re lucky, you may attend the third anniversary (hatchday?) # 3-Aiglon the first should take place within days.
Wildlife cams seem to be everywhere (take a look at some others we’ve blogged about), but as my colleague and avid birder Heidi DeVos put it in e-mail to me, “This is an action of Bird cam pretty amazing-smooth and noisy. I now look what have to be a windy day in Iowa, and I can really hear the wind rushing around. Very different from most webcams nest bird! “What do you think?
