Re: Baby Bald Eagle Camera !

Bittersweet goodbyes. From Decorah eagle FaceBook page;

"Thank you very much everyone, for all of your kind words and support! The Decorah Eagles will be back in November! It's been a great 2012 season!

Here's a very special poem by Stacy Smith to make you think like an eagle does."



When they turn on the cameras again, the little ones will be long gone. But they are alive, healthy and free.
That's a great gift.

I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

This is sad news;

"We are very sorry to announce that D12 is dead. D12 was found electrocuted at the base of a power pole on a Sunday morning. We notified the power company, who modified the top of that pole on Sunday and several other poles in the
area on Monday.
For those that have asked for a photo of D12, here is one from our Facebook album. We continue to remember how blessed we are with all the successes from the Decorah nest so far, and we will be thankful for all the future successes as well. This is the first known tragedy from the Decorah nest, and we thank all of you for your heartfelt thoughts on this loss."





"D12 hatched on 3/27/12 at 1:20 pm, branched on 6/9/12 at 5:38 am, and fledged 6/13 early in the morning. D12 was found at the base of a power pole on the morning of 7/1/12, apparently electrocuted. D12 was 96 days old. — Sad news... D12 passes on, 3/27 - 7/1 2012, RIP our sweet Eagle."


R.I.P. D12

How sad the circle of life can be. It really sucks that it was "modern technology" that did him in.

Thanks again for all of the updates.
FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

That's a nice shot of the whole family!

Still, so sad to read about D12, after seeing him all the way from an egg being laid to his first flights!!

I find it tough, to refrain from following this story, and posting updates. Here is a great photo I wanted to share.
This is D13 and D14, near their home tree, on the morning of july 2nd. (D14 is the one with the antenna.)

So, the nest has been updated with new camera's, including new night camera's, and greater ability to pan, and zoom.

Not on all the time. But you can catch some stuff as they work on the controls.

Here's a picture of dad from yesterday.


And a picture of mom from this morning.


I look forward to another rewarding season with these beautiful birds.

Great pictures! It was amazing how easy it was to get involved with them last year. I'm looking forward to another nesting season, too.

Seems like the link is live most of the time now. www.ustream.tv/decoraheagles
Not much activity. Some nest maintenance, and an occasional mouse.
