Hi,
I watched D32 leave and it looked like he/she was flying to a branch. Didn't look like a a fall.

Oregonian1944 (Admin): Our latest update
:There have been boots on the ground but the search is now suspended for the night.The growth below the tree is about 5 feet tall. They did not find D32 and could not see him in the trees. They think he's probably hunkered down somewhere.They also checked the creek. We hope to have more information in the morning. Have a good evening everyone.

Also from RRP (About 10:15 pm)

RRP Is Searching for D32

D32 branched earlier today and left the tree entirely this evening. This evening D32 took flight again from the Skywalk branch and, while we don't know if this was a purposeful flight or an unintentional fledge, we immediately took action to assess the situation on the ground. No other information is available at this time, but we will provide an update here, on our website, and at explore.org when we learn anything.

We understand that everyone is concerned about D32, but it is imperative that everyone observe federal regulations regarding Bald Eagles and Bald Eagle nests. RRP will continue to assess and monitor the situation. For the sake of the eagles, everyone needs to minimize stress to parents and eaglets, in the nest or not, while we figure out what happened and how it should be handled.

Thank you so much for watching, for caring, and for helping to keep our eagles safe! We'll post as soon as we know anything! D32 is 61 days old today, an age at which eaglets have been recorded leaving the nest and (eventually) successfully fledging. Given the chance, which is an extremely important reason to give the eagles space right now, Mom and DM2 will find and care for D32.

3 pics from yesterday…. The first one is from Elaine's video, thanks Elaine

the 2 others, it was 11h25 and i remember i said "take care little one, you are a little high for me…"

Something i noticed too, D33 was shaking the head continuously, but not the adult, not D32... Bugs prefers the nest ?

On Elaine's video, for me, it is clear that D32 decided to go toward another tree/branch, he didn't do that accidentally...

12:08--Adult in to check on things at the nest. Lots of head shaking so the bugs are still bad. D33 still on skywalk.

12:10-Adult flies to skywalk. Maybe to give the eaglet a pep talk or maybe because D33 is in the adult's usual spot.
Screen Shot 2019-06-05 at 1.10.31 PM.jpg
The other parent flies in with a fish. D33 hasn't moved. Of course, his walk down the branch is blocked. ;)
Screen Shot 2019-06-05 at 1.12.35 PM.jpg
As I was typing the adult on the nest flew. The adult on the branch wasted no time in getting down to the nest to have some fish. A minute later it flies, leaving D33 up on the branch.

This is D33 I think right before he slipped off the branch?
About 30 minutes ago?
His feet slipped and he dropped under the branch, then dropped.
I didn't hear any "screeeing"

Thank you for all the updates and observations Kimf. They are truly appreciated. I had just got home and have been home for a short time when I seen D33 take a tumble from the branch. I really don't enjoy making these videos. :(

It's a comfort to know that RRP has ground crews out there. They have to be just as worried as we are. Hopefully they are both alright. :luck:

Hi everybody...
There is still no news yet from RRP. All we can do is wait on them for information. Believe me, I know it is difficult. Take some deep breaths... We will keep you posted and let you know as soon as we find out something. They have said they will post news to their Facebook page. You do not have to be a Facebook member. Here is the link...

Good News .. DNR found D33 Raptor Resource Project
30 mins · \

Happy Tears here!

Update on Decorah Eagles D32 & D33
It's been a pretty frantic 24 hours anxiously awaiting news in the search for D32 who flew off the Skywalk branch about 6:03PM CT last evening, and even more stressful when sibling D33 fell off the Skywalk in nearly the same place about 2:39PM CT this afternoon.
The search team headed out early this morning led by RRP Board Director and eagle biologist Brett Mandernack and wildlife assistant Ryan Schmitz. Both quickly got to work and searched a boxed area from the bridge to about 0.5 miles upstream past the nest and were unable to locate D32 or even get a vocalization. They also watched Both Mom and DM2 carefully, looking for clues in flight paths hoping one of the parents would lead them to a spot where they might have been caring for D32. There was no luck on locating the eaglet, but RRP is putting plans in place to continue on with a search again tomorrow and will monitor the parents travels more closely.


D33 had been exploring the Skywalk branch since yesterday, not branching yet, but carefully and skillfully had walked up to perch and look about, and ventured a bit further with each exploration and both DM2 and Mom kept the eaglet company perched nearby or in the nest. This afternoon D33 climbed up to about the same spot as D32 had when she/he lost its footing and fell. Within about 15 minutes RRP was notified by Iowa DNR that D33 was located, retrieved, and was taken to the Decorah Fish Hatchery for a visual inspection. It was determined that she/he was a bit underweight, but no other obvious injuries were noted. It was decided to transport the eaglet to S.O.A.R. (Saving Our Avian Resources) where D33 would be under skilled veterinary and rehab care to be evaluated and stabilized. We will have no further information about D33's condition until such time that the veterinary exam is completed, and RRP will provide that information as soon as it is known.

We very much appreciate the many caring comments we have received on our Facebook page and will continue to update you on both D32 and D33 as soon as we know anything. For some of you, the wait has been excruciating (and for us too), but we respect that our incredible search team has put all its efforts into the painstaking process of gently moving in slow cautious steps in the dense and tall underbrush rather than stop every so often for a progress report … which had pretty much been no sighting all day.

We know that the gnats and black flies are worrisome to everyone and we cannot begin to answer if that may have been the impetus to any fledge, flight, or fall, and we ask you to please wait until we have more information after D33's evaluation ... otherwise, we would only be speculating … something that we don't like to do as a research site.
Lastly, we would like to thank you for your patience as we troubleshoot and try to stabilize our website and chat spaces. It is a priority for us to have those up and working as soon as possible, and we greatly appreciate your understanding and support. While we wait to resolve both eagle and technology issues we ask you to continue to be patient with each other, with us, and let's please all keep talons crossed for our beloved Decorah Eagle family and successful outcomes.
