Iowa’s bald eagle counts return to normal in 2023 after bird flu outbreaks in 2022 - https://www.thegazette.com/community/iowas-bald-eagle-counts-return-to-normal-in-2023-after-bird-flu-outbreaks-in-2022/


Three eaglets — D34, D35 and D36 — look around from their nest overlooking a Decorah fish hatchery in this undated photo by the Raptor Resource Project in Decorah. This year’s bald eagle survey in Iowa found an average 1.77 fledglings per nest, one of the highest rates in recent years, according to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources. Usually bald eagles lay only one to three eggs per season, but one volunteer observed one Iowa nest with four eaglets. (Raptor Resource Project)
