DECORAH, Iowa — The world-famous Decorah Eagles have made their nest a bit more crowded.
The Raptor Resource Project, which operates cameras trained on the nest, confirms a second egg has joined the first. The egg was laid Sunday night at 7:46 p.m.
The eagle pair has traditionally had three eggs, and raised three eaglets, per year but this is the pair’s first season in the nest dubbed N2B. It’s near the original nest, where the first camera was placed, and the second nest which blew down last year in a storm.
The Raptor Resource Project decided to help the eagles along and began building a nest in a tree near the second nest, hoping the eagles would take over construction and make it their home. The effort worked and now cameras can once again catch the action at the eagles’ nest.
The first egg of 2016 was laid on Thursday, February 18th.
