And one of the eaglets is now officially a fledgling, after taking it's first flight!!
Seems like they just hatched yesterday.

They will be leaving home soon. Never to return. But that's a good thing.

"Branching"

I guess technically, D14 only branched yesterday. But D14 fledge has been confirmed today!



Kinda blurry, but that's D14 preparing for lift off, earlier today!

Looks like the end of the webcasts is approaching. Now with the eaglets fully fledged, and spending less time in the nest,
RPP will begin to prepare for the off season, and plan for next year. This is a quote from their page;

"The Raptor Resource Project will be turning off our Decorah eagle cam, moderated chat, and social stream at 8:00pm on June 30th, 2012.

The eaglets will have fledged and will be spending less time on the nest. We'll use the off season to test and install new cameras, computers, and audio equipment for the 2013 nesting season, build and deploy peregrine and kestrel nest boxes, and begin our pilot kestrel program.

During our downtime, you are welcome to check our Facebook, website, forum and YouTube Channel for news and video:

Facebook: www.facebook.com/pages/Raptor-Resource-Project/103786266324668

Website: www.raptorresource.org
Forum: www.raptorresource.org/forum/

YouTube channel : www.youtube.com/user/ries96

We plan to turn our camera stream back on in November. Chat will return in early 2013."

So, check em out while you still can. Here's a picture from earlier today.

Not much action in the nest these days. Most of the young eagles time is spent on the branches, and of course, flying.

From the Decorah Eagles FaceBook page;

"We have received numerous requests for some of the merchandise to feature the 2012 Decorah Eagle family, and in an effort to please everyone, we have now made those items available. There is a black 15oz coffee mug featuring head shots of the eagles, as well as a landscape picture in the background on the mug. There is also a new 2012 Decorah Eagle family shirt design which features Mom & Dad looking down at 3 eggs in the nest bowl, and head shots of the eagles surrounding that background picture.

They are still working on navigation on the website at Sharon's for the new apparel designs, and they still have to load the order images for the children's apparel, hoodies, crews and long sleeve shirts with the new design. Anyone wishing to order those with the new design on them prior to website completion, can call the 800 number on the website for Sharon's. The adult t-shirts are already on the website with the new design on them, and the new mug is available also, for shipping after July 5th."
[For the above mentioned, first go to RRP merchandising link below, then to go to Sharon's]

Below is main link to all available fundraising merchandise; you can use this link which includes books, prints, and much more.
raptorresource.org/fundraising.html

Thanks, everyone! We hope you like the new items that you asked for.

And a reminder, the webcams will be turned off for the season on saturday.

I think I may get one of those Eagle coffee mugs.

Breaking news. D14 has been banded, and fitted with a transmitter. Kinda torn on the need for this. But I know it's
important, and I knew they were going to do it.

I'm all for the transmitters in the interest of science. These people obviously care about the animals so I trust their judgement.

Does anyone know how large, or small they are ? The "little ones" in that last picture appear NYC pigeon size to me but I suspect the camera's make they appear smaller than they really are.

Well, that nest is really large. So, it's hard to tell exactly, but they must be 80% of full grown, if not more.
Definitely bigger than a pigeon.
