Re: Baby Bald Eagle Camera !

#334224 3 months ago
Latest update. D20, the injured juvenile eagle, in the care of S.O.A.R. had his cast removed yesterday, 7/22.
They will be allowed to move, but kept in a small area, so it can't fly yet. It will be under observation for another
week or so, until they fell it is well enough to be moved to a cage that's large enough for it to fly a little bit.
In general, it's recovery is going along very well.

D4, the juvenile eagle with the transmitter, is doing well. They are tracking it, with the transmitter, and it is flying
farther every day, but still returning to the mulch pile area, to be fed by mom and dad. It appears to be doing well.

This picture, posted today, is from early this morning, 7/23.

The camera is still on. On the new nest today. Enjoy it while you can. It will be turned off soon.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

Quick update! D4 is currently on the nest cam. The cam is on the old nest.
D4 found it by following mom and dad.

hopefully the bug problem has diminished enough that the family can use the nest more comfortably

didn't think there'd be anymore to see on the cam this year

D4 has been seen popping in a few times on the nest. I think she likes this tree. Hopefully she will keep returning.

This picture was taken on 7/26.

the nest looks like someone planted a garden up there !
how does enough dirt stay in the nest ? you'd think it would wash away in the rain.

A late summer update. I've been loosely following the eagles on FB. The two surviving Decorah eagle juveniles,
D19, (renamed D4 after being fitted with a transmitter), and D20, the injured juvenile, are doing well. D20 is
still undergoing rehab, and is doing well. They've allowed it to undergo this with another injured juvenile eagle,
from a different nest. They have talked about the severity of the break, and it's proximity, as needing greater
recovery time than originally anticipated. And it remains unclear as to when it could be released. (((D20)))

D4, is appearing to be doing well, and developing normally. It has stayed near the nesting area, and near the
fish hatchery, and the mulch piles. But is spending most of it's time, up in the tree's, or flying higher and higher.
She is hunting for herself, and still getting some assistance from mom and dad. Soon, they will stop feeding her.
But it appears she is well on the way to being independent. Here are a couple recent pictures, showing D4 near
the fish hatchery. And another with her on the nest.

Both photo's taken within the last 4 or 5 days. Huge thanks to the photographers for sharing.
Also, they've left the nest cam on. It appears to be on the old nest, or N1. I know last year they had turned
it off by now. But that may have been for maintenance. Either way, take advantage. D4 uses the nest to eat,
and to interact with mom and dad, who are usually nearby.
