One of the things that I loved to watch in the spring when we lived in Iowa was the live eagle camera on the nest in Decorah. Chris and I were able to see it in person but since that is not possible now I love to log onto the live eagle cam to check out the progress.
A few facts about the eagles and the nest from the Raptor Resource Project page:
The Decorah eagles are nesting near the Decorah Trout Hatchery, located at 2325 Siewers Spring Rd in Decorah, IA. The female is known as Mom and the male is known as DM2 (for the second Decorah male eagle). In general, they begin courtship in October, productive mating in late January or early February, and egg-laying in mid to late February. Hatching usually begins in late March to early April, and the eaglets fledge in mid-to-late June. While young usually disperse between August and October, the adults remain on territory year round. They eat live and and dead fish, squirrels, other birds, rabbit, muskrat, deer, possum and anything else they can catch or find.Raptor Resource Project
This year it appears there are 3 babies and they are looking like they are growing up quickly. I love that we have the capability to see them up close. The camera does a great job of showing us what is going on in the nest.
I hope you enjoy watching this nest as much as I do. If you know of any other live webcams that are fun to watch I would love to hear about them. Leave me a link in the comments and don’t forget to Comment for a Cause – WHO COVID-19 Solidarity Fund.
