DECORAH EAGLES: Third Egg Laid
Over the weekend there was another addition to the Decorah eagles’ snowy nest.
Sunday, the mama eagle laid her third egg. The egg, D20, was laid at 6:43 p.m.
This is the sixth year in a row the eagle pair has had three eggs in the nest. Hundreds of thousands of people across the world have watched the eagles raise their young over the past few years thanks to camera trained on the nest. It’s operated by the Raptor Resource Project, which streams the video live on the internet.
The nest is located across the street from the DNR Fish Hatchery in Decorah, giving the eagles a great food source.
You can keep track of one of the eagles’ offspring from a previous year here. A GPS tracker was fitted on the female eagle. She still hangs around the Decorah area, but during the summer months travels as far north as Canada.
