Good night/morning everyone, bonjour Bev, …!
5 pics from yesterday, around 09h15 am using the DVR . It was awful to see all these bugs flying around DN9 and Dad. At a time DN9 searched to go under Dad like when he was Young but now she is too big but for a while her head was hidden…
2019-06-03_16h15_30.jpg
Dad just arrived with the fawn's head, how he is panting and already many bugs on him

DN9 didn't seem too angry, only "ennoyed" by bugs

00h23 DN9 seems well, awaked and preening. Mom is branch near and i think most of the bugs migrated elsewhere tonight so all the family can rest a little while.

DN9 just slipped off the branch. :cry1:
I am worried about this eaglet. S/he has been so bothered by gnats and hasn't done much wingersizing.
Stay safe DN9! :rh:

This is so heartbreaking. Praying all is well with D9, D32 and D33. RRP sure has their hands full. I'm sure they are doing everything they can to help. God Bless all of them trying to find our babies. I haven't been watching this nest this year but I did scrub back to take a video just in case anyone wants to see it. Ugh!

Thank you Elaine!! That is just so sad to see another Decorah area eaglet leave the nest like that at such an early age--I hope she is OK!! I have this from RRP ---

Raptor Resource Project
Update: Decorah North Nest Eaglet DN9
Many of you saw DN9 take a tumble from the Babysitting Branch about 8:15 AM CT this morning. DN9 was perched and scratching his/her face, looked around and seemed to have lost footing and balance. The buffalo gnats / black flies have also been an issue at this nest, and while DN9 and the parents have appeared to be coping with the infestation we are very aware the extremely wet spring has made it a bad season for bug infestations. We have used both the nest cam and pasture cam for better looks for DN9, with both online live, and offline monitoring. A parent was seen in the pasture earlier, and also visiting the nest with a fish, and both perched across the stream in a favorite tree. We are certain that the parents know where DN9 is and optimistic that will help point us in the right direction to locate the eaglet.
We’re getting a lot of photos from viewers suggesting possible locations of the eaglet, and while we appreciate your care and concern we ask that you not send any more. We can’t reply or handle the influx of images being sent to us with suggestions of where to look. Our volunteer camera operators are exceptional and we know they have “eagle eyes” to thoroughly do a visual search for any sign of DN9.
This has been a really tough couple of days at the hatchery nest for Decorah Eaglets D32 & D33, and now today with DN9 at the North Nest. Please know that RRP is doing all we can at the moment to coordinate efforts to find DN9 as well as the search effort again today for D32 at the hatchery nest, and we will continue to keep you posted as the events unfold. We're extremely shorthanded and while we appreciate your comments, we might not be able to answer every question or answer as promptly as we normally would like. Our priority now is focused on finding our raptors. We thank you for your patience and ask that you try to remain positive and kind with each other.

I have now heard that DN9 has been located in the pasture under the nest---here is an scap borrowed from Robert Frisone on FB

They reached DN9. Took a good look at him and took some photos and put him back. Mom and Dad were screeching and circling. I am sure they will update us soon. :yes:
