Decorah Eagles

Trout Run Trail, Decorah, Iowa 52101 USA

“Eagles with live camera”

The Decorah Eagles are located in a cottonwood tree across the street from the Iowa Fish Hatchery in Decorah, IA. This is the second nest built by this pair of eagles. The new nest was built in 2013, in an area quite close to their original nest that they had used since 2007. This new nest is along side a hiking/bike path on some private property there.  Many people travel to Decorah to see the eagles for themselves. They can be seen all year round, flying in the sky, perching in trees nearby, or even swooping in to snag a fresh fish from the abundant supply at the fish hatchery. Eagles don't live on their nests. They use a nest to hatch their eggs and raise their young. The live cameras installed in the nest tree by RRP make it possible for humans to share in this experience with this pair of eagles. The Decorah Eagles begin working on their nest in the fall, lay their eggs in Feb. or early March, and the eggs hatch 35-39 days later. That's when the real fun begins for us! We get to watch as the eaglets grow and change right before our eyes. Eventually, the young ones get to the point where they are ready to leave the nest for good, and begin life out on their own.

These are the eagles made famous by the Raptor Resource Project "eagle cam" at www.farmyou.com/falcon_cams/index.html. The eagles nest across the road from the state fish hatchery and are resident from early spring, when they lay their eggs, until mid-summer, when the eaglets "fledge." The fledglings and the parents can still be seen in the area through the summer months, as the young ones don't fly far at first. People come from all over to get their eagle-watching fix. Bring binoculars and a camera with a long lens, just in case, but often they can be seen "up close and personal."
