Lori, thanks very much for the gifs and links to SOAR and MrDecorah. Great to know he is still doing OK there as an ambassador eagle.

Lisa, even teeny views of Mom or DM2 are much welcomed! Can't wait to see their fledglings this summer when they visit N2B.

STL, I get excited anytime I see Mom or DM2 on cam.  I hope we get to see their fledglings this year!

From RRP's FB page:

Where are D36 and D27? D27 sent us a postcard from Minnesota's SE Bluff Country, just 30 miles north of her natal nest, while D36 headed back into central Minnesota after a brief sojourn into Lake Country!
D36 is currently wandering between some small lakes and waterfowl production areas in a heavily agricultural area south of Alexandria, MN. Although I'm not familiar with this part of Minnesota, it looks like excellent habitat for a young eagle, with plenty of options for food, perching, and roosting. One of Minnesota's big nesting eagle strongholds is located just north of D36, which means he should have plenty of company!
Is D27 going to head north this year? Last year, she left for Ontario on June 3rd. Her winter/early spring pattern looked a lot like it does now: not much traveling in January and February, especially through the polar plunge, followed by generalized wandering through NE Iowa and SE Minnesota. Minnesota's SE Bluff Country is a spectacular place for our not-so-young eaglet, who turned four on April 1st! She won't be old enough to start her own family until next year, but she could start to curtail her wandering. We'll see if she visits Ontario again this year! Stay safe, everybirdie - and don't forget to write!
A thousand thanks to Brett Mandernack and the staff of Eagle Valley for sharing their data, maps, and expertise with us. To explore the travels of any of the eagles we've tracked, please visit our interactive maps at https://www.raptorresource.org/learning-tools/eagle-map/.

From rewind last evening around 7:02pm - Cam ops spotted an eagle flying over the retention pond, and it flew in the direction of what I call the pasture tree by the barn.  When cam zoomed towards the tree, you could see another eagle joining the first one at the tree.  The eagle on the left flew away first, and the one of the right followed quickly after it.

Lisa, good catch on the deer.  Any time we see two adult BEs in this area, we think it's Mom and DM2. Maybe they were taking a little break from nest duties.  Or total visitors.  Ha!

That painting of the Decorah eagles posted earlier today -- it's just spectacular!

Good eye Lisa on the deer & Eagles!!  I was watching the ducks earlier they sure are beautiful!!! If Mom & DM2 were taking a break together that means the little ones are within ear shot  ;) ;) ;)  ;D
T40 thank you so much for the update on D27 & D36.  Nice to see they are doing Eagle stuff! Miss them so much!

Quick visit from this SA a few minutes ago.  Kinda looks like the one that visited a week or so ago.
