Update – Decorah North Nest – DN2 has been retrieved from the nest, necropsy will be done

Here is the update from the Raptor Resource Project’s Facebook page this evening:

Amy reports that it has been an all day process, but permits were signed off on, a climbing team assembled, and DN2 was retrieved from the nest via a pole from 20 ft below. DN2 will be taken for a necropsy tomorrow with our veterinarian who works with SOAR.

Dad has been seen, Mom has been flying and is now in the nest with DN1, and while we don’t know if it has eaten, it is robust and active, and there is food in the nest. Amy has photos and will write a blog that will post later tonight or tomorrow.

The camera will remain off for live viewing for a bit longer, but I do not have a timetable for when we will be live streaming again. In the meantime, thank you all for the incredible strength and support you have shown to RRP and hopefully we will have some answers soon as to cause of death of DN2.”

  1. A reminder to ALL of us to take care of our gift – the Earth. Some of these situations can be avoided if we act responsibly.

  2. I don’t feel that you should be the judge of what we should or should not be able to bear to watch. Please put the camera back online.

  3. I was so saddened to hear of the baby Eagle’s death. I have been watching since day 1. I felt like I lost one of my own and could not stop crying all day.
