Enjoy this video from the 20x60 flight pen of D33, DN9, Allamakee, and Calmar captured on the GoPro Camera on 13 August 2019. There is a bit of sound... the hum is the exhaust fan that circulates air through the building. The juvenile at the end of the video gawking at the camera is D33. Savanna confirmed as most of the talon polish has worm off!

Decorah North Bald Eagles

August 17, 2019: The Decorah North Eagles cam has been put offline while we complete cam maintenance. We will continue to record locally in case anything interesting happens. We plan to be back online in late September or early October at the latest. In the meantime, we suggest watching the Flyway: https://www.raptorresource.org/birdcams ... laska-cam/

~ Don’t get sea-sick!
~



One of the tasks that young bald eagles need to master is “water practice” - learning how to grab items out of the water. The GoPro Video camera (fabulous that they are weather / water-proof) was placed in the bottom of the wading pool. This gives a good look at the ceiling of the 20x60’ flight pen.
Kay went to get the thawing frozen fish to put in the pool. They all need to learn to grab food out of the water!
In the meantime, DN9 decided it was bath-day! At the end of the video, DN9 leaves the pool, but comes back to check out the camera a bit closer. I’m not sure if she turned the camera on its side with her beak or a foot, but you do get a nice close-up of a talon.
D33, DN9, Allamakee, and Calmar are becoming more proficient at “sticking the landing,” they’ve learned how to use that tail to steer and make turns, and are easily flying straight up to a perch. They will get water-practice while still in the 20x60 so the fish won’t be snactched from the pool by the adult bald eagles in the big flight pen!
D32 is still rooming with Decorah. He spends much of his time on the padded perch looking out the window and only is seen on the ground for food and a bath. He continues to stretch out that right leg and move the toes.

SOAR - Saving Our Avian Resources
~ Moving on up! ~
:hooray:

The four hatch-year bald eagles in the 20x60' flight pen have mastered taking food items out of the water, flying, turning, and landing. Next up in their rehabilitation process is to build stamina and social skills.
To accomplish these next tasks, D33, DN9, Allamakee, and Calmar have all moved to the 100’ flight pen! As part of the moving process, weights and beak depth measurements were taken again (since they could still be growing!). Both females (D33 and DN9) weigh in at 10 pounds and have a tish more depth to their beaks. There was no change noted for the two males.
The photo shows all four of them up on the far back perch. They are sitting under a skylight panel so they look washed out. Plus close-up photos of three of the four. Somehow Allamakee didn’t get his photo taken.
D32 is still rooming with Decorah. He spends much of his time on the padded perch looking out the window and only is seen on the ground for food and a bath. He continues to stretch out that right leg and move the toes. How long will D32 stay in this flight pen? The more he can gently use his right leg and foot, the better. D32 is only 12 weeks post-surgery. That’s really not a very long time and is too soon to put flight pressure on that leg. Think of a human who had surgery to stabilize a broken bone, they wouldn’t be running 12 weeks post-surgery.

Exciting News :hooray: :bravo:



SOAR - Saving Our Avian Resources

Yes, D33, DN9, Allamakee, and Calmar have taken their “wild maiden flight.” If you watched the video with the post titled “Gaining flight strength” you saw much improvement in flight skills in each of these young eagles. These eagles showed Kay they were ready… so back to the 20 x 60’ flight pen with the soft-release window.


https://www.facebook.com/42222916452838 ... 627755828/

On 18 September 2019, trail cameras and the GoPro were turned on in hopes of getting their leaving on video, the window was opened… Kay reported that an osprey flew overhead as everything was getting set. For many of us, an osprey flyover is good karma!
One by one these bald eagles “flew the coop” in a very short time. DN9 is the “ring leader” and it looks like they followed each other out… not wanting to get left behind. The timer on one trail camera indicates all left within 25 minutes of DN9 leaving. “They were ready,” Kay said.
In Kay’s years of raptor rehabilitation and soft-releasing falcons, hawks, osprey, barn owls, and bald eagles, she has witnessed birds leaving right away to some hanging back, a bit tentative on their departure. With that, she was conservative in her estimate on how long it would take for these four bald eagles to disperse.
Now that you’ve watched the video a time or three, raise your hand if you noticed that each is sporting new jewelry? Yes, these four bald eagles have an official USGS band. Years ago, Kay was a sub-permittee on a banding permit, so she and her husband have the experience of banding bald eagles. Kay talked with Brett Mandernack of Eagle Valley Nature Preserve as he has banded young bald eagles (including from the Decorah nest) as part of his research project looking at juvenile dispersal and travel behavior. Would Brett consider banding these four?
Obviously he said yes. But not without some contemplation and also checking with the banding lab to make sure it was allowable to band rehabilitated birds. Brett said initially he was interested in banding D33 and DN9, but when he realized that this group of four would be rehabilitating together, he thought banding all four eagles could lead to interesting information. Brett also said that he hopes to not have any band returns for about 25+ years so the next generation of eagle researchers will have that interesting information!
We understand that this news is a tad bittersweet as we no longer can share pictures and videos. Please be comforted by the fact that they are now living the eagle life they were destined to have.

So, your next burning questions are about D32. Will D32 be banded? The plan is to NOT band D32. Will D32 be released? That is our hope. But first, not only does D32 need time in the 100’ flight pen, the 20 x 60’ pen will be used to soft release some red-tailed hawks and then peregrine falcons (or vice versa). When D32 moves to a larger flight pen, we’ll try to get video then.
Thank you for the positive vibes and your support this "eagle summer."

Last news from SOAR
https://www.facebook.com/SOAR-Saving-Ou ... 164528389/

Now to answer some questions…
Have DN9, Allamakee, D33, and Calmar been seen since their soft-release at SOAR?
Juvenile eagles were seen perching and soaring in the area for about one week plus, then, no more sightings.
One juvenile was seen perched on a neighbor’s shed, but as Kay’s vehicle approached, the eagle took flight and soared over the nearby creek.
What has D32 been up to and do you have recent pictures?
D32 (and Decorah) are incredibly camera-shy and turn their backs to the door when Kay goes in to feed or freshen the water pans. Sorry, no new pictures.
D32 continues to be a good eater and takes the short flights from the food and water pan to the perch. Kay is hoping to get the current 20x60’ occupants moved out in the next week or so and then move some eagles into the 20x60’ flight pen, including D32, for initial flight training.
