Sad loss of the youngest eaglet at the Decorah North Nest – Critical Watch Alert

Sadly, the little one at the Decorah North Nest has passed away.  Even though we knew it was a possibility, it is still so hard on the heart to see happen.  I’m issuing a Critical Watch Alert because for a few days after this happens, it can be very hard to watch how the eagles dispose of the remains.  Some possibilities are that they may eat the remains, cover it up, or remove it from the nest.  Many hugs to everyone who loves and follows this nest.  There is a very nice post with some thoughts on what happened from RRP on their blog here: http://raptorresource.blogspot.com/2016/05/decorah-north-news-dn3-has-died.html

  1. The strong survive is what I’ve become to realize out in the wild with these raptors. It’s extremely hard to watch with the eaglets bonking and forcing their dominance with each other, especially in this case with that precious, little, meack one. Every life is precious. Breaks my heart.
