~ Bob Finds D1 In The Decorah Sunrise, December 22nd ~

Bob writes:

When I logged on to this morning's Argos data I was pleased to see that D1 continues to reside in Decorah, Iowa. It is completely amazing that this same eagle last summer spent three months in Polar Bear Provincial Park on Hudson Bay in northern most Ontario, Canada, and is now once again back in Decorah. I turned on the satellite receiver and got a strong signal from my kitchen table. As the sun began to rise I loaded the gear into the car and was pleased to hear the signal increasing as I made my way into Decorah city proper. While driving over a bridge spanning the Upper Iowa River the receiver signal was maxing out and I spotted D1 perched in a tree overlooking the river. I snapped this picture from a long distance away then drove closer in attempts to get a better image but, she spooked. This is good. She has a fear of man that can only help her in life. ~ Bob

Happy Holidays, everyone!

NATIONAL BIRD DAY - Today January 5th - Let's CELEBRATE!

Why National Bird Day?
The beauty, songs, and flight of birds have long been sources of human inspiration.
Today, nearly 12 percent of the world's 9,800 bird species may face extinction within the next century, including nearly one-third of the world's 330 parrot species. Birds are sentinel species whose plight serves as barometer of ecosystem health and alert system for detecting global environmental ills.
Many of the world's parrots and songbirds are threatened with extinction due to pressures from the illegal pet trade, disease, and habitat loss.
Public awareness and education about the physical and behavioral needs of birds can go far in improving the welfare of the millions of birds kept in captivity.
The survival and well-being of the world's birds depends upon public education and support for conservation.
This is the reason for National Bird Day. Join us!

Decorah Eagles
SAVE THE EAGLES DAY !!! - celebrated today; Jan. 10th, 2013

What is Save the Eagles Day ? [per the "Altius Directory"]
"Save the Eagles Day is commemorated on the 10th of January every year to save the eagles from extinction. The eagles were once in extinction in the later part of 20th Century, but as on June 2007, the Bald Eagle- national bird of the United States, was removed from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife, due to the assiduous work of scientists and good stewards of both public and private lands.
There are more then 70 species of eagles throughout the world; except Hawaii, where the bird never resided. Other species of birds are not so fortunate as the Bald Eagle because of the threat caused due to habitat loss, poaching, and pesticides.
Throughout history, eagle appeared in both mythology and heraldry, and has been recognized as a symbol of power, courage, freedom and immorality since the antediluvian times. It is believed in some religions that a high-soaring eagle touches the face of God. Legends of Mexico's Aztecs so honored the bird that they built their capital, Tenochtitlan, at the spot where an eagle roosted on a cactus to raven a snake.
Eagles have a long life, great strength and majestic looks, and for this reason, the United States chose the bald eagle as its emblem. Not only the United States, Germany's coat of arms has a black eagle spreading its wings; Egypt's coat of arms portrays a majestic and tall eagle of black and gold. Albania's flag and its coat of arms also depicts a two-headed eagle. And the Turks and the Byzantine Empire shows a two-headed eagle as its emblem.
In ancient Rome, it was believed that the eagle represented God Jupiter and represented the senate. The eagle can be found in religions including Christianity and Hinduism as well. It is considered as a sacred bird in some cultures, and her feathers are used in many spiritual customs. Some Native Americans idolize eagle feathers as holy religious objects- the feathers and parts of bald eagle and golden eagles are in equivalence with the bible and crucifix. Feathers of eagle are used in ceremonies to honor achievements and qualities of leadership and bravery.
How is Save the Eagles Day Celebrated ?
To honor Save the Eagles Day, we can look forward to protect eagles and the habitat of this most renowned and majestic bird. Donating to a wildlife sanctuary or turning to the government officials to strengthen environmental protection of waterways might help in saving the eagles. Planting trees and maintaining them in our own yards or local parks makes place for eagles to alight.
On the 10th of January, we can thank the United States for being able to enjoy watching these amazing birds soaring high in our sky. We should also send this intention to our world for it will help eagles continue their existence throughout the world now and for the years to come."

1/7 @ 3p ct @ 5 1/2 min edited vid; M & D on the Y, they both fly off; M does a round trip and brings a large branch to the nest that she places on the backside rail.




So, nothing sure yet. They seem to be preparing both nests.

We are entering Eagle time. Mating and nesting should begin soon. And they are preparing the old nest, and the new.

Thanks for the update. Really like the photos! Was out today checking out "my" local eagles (Falls Lake in central NC) in 2 locations saw a total of 3 adults and 1 juvy, although I've been seeing other juvys lately. We used to have a local camera but it got whacked in a storm a while back. They are usually too far away for decent photos, but I spend a lot of time watching them through binoculars. They are impressive birds.
Thank You Cody, we are forever Grateful!

Crazy squirrel!



The parents are making an effort to prepare the old nest. It's not unusual for them to have several.
