Hello from mid-MO. My gifted ed elementary classes have been watching the Decorah Eagles for several years. This year, we are trying something new, a blog! It can be accessed at   http://spectrumclasses.weebly.com/decorah-eagle-blog  We are learning to do back channeling where two students are assigned a day where they create the blog and keep the UStream site up continuously to track what goes on. It's a new learning adventure for us and hopefully will work out. They seem pretty excited about doing the blog!

Thank you for sharing this with us dovemamma, I love the blog!  Can't wait to chat with y'all when the season gets underway! ;D
ring the bells that still can ring, forget your perfect offering.  There is a crack in everything-that's how the light gets in

St. Joseph student shares Conservation Field Days lessons. What a great idea!! Be sure to read the winning essay that features bald eagles.

Just came across this from the Minnesota DNR website.  They have "School Forests" in Minnesota:

Decorah Eagles 2016! 

In class today we were discussing the feet of a Bald Eagle and a student asked me if they call the long bones in a Bald Eagle's feet phalanges like in our fingers and toes. Good question.  I said we would have to look that up and see.  Later we went to Bald Eagle Fact of the Day and low and behold.... there was our answer. Thank you tulsaeducati!  Yes, they are called the same thing. We added this piece of information to our journal page about feet.  Oh what fun this learning is!
You are most welcome, tc - our timing was good! lol

dovemama - what a great blog, and a fantastic idea.  Your students are really lucky to have you as their teacher.  We love to hear the ways teachers connect students to the world of wildlife, and especially to the Decorah eagles! Great job.

A little eggcited.... Our local newspaper is coming to my classroom Friday to talk to the kids and get information to write an article in the paper!

TEAMCARNES, that's wonderful!  Be sure to share a link to the article with us!  I'm a little eggcited for you and your students, too!  :)

Be sure to read Amy's new blog post on the RRP Blog - about imprinting, a subject that is fascinating to many of us eagle fans.
Here's the link:

Hi Ruby - glad you liked the RRP blog posts - they are so informative and interesting! That Amy is incredible.  Another great site with clips of eagle vocalizations is the Cornell site:  https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Bald_Eagle/sounds

Once again, team, you are holding true to the title of this thread - Education in Action.  Not many students get to experience this.  Thank you.
