Update on the Decorah Eagle Cam and some sad news

Last week I posted some pictures of the eagles nest in Decorah, Iowa. The eaglets are growing bigger each day and are being well cared for by their mom. Here are some recent pictures.

On a sadder note, there is an eagle cam in Norfolk, Virginia where the eaglets have been thriving and doing well. Yesterday morning while momma eagle was out getting food for her babies she was hit by a plane landing at the Norfolk airport. Here is the news report. The eaglets dad did feed them last night and early this morning but the decision has been made to move the eaglets to insure their continued growth. Here is the statement that was posted:

DGIF biologists have decided that it is in the best interest of the eaglets to remove them from the nest and relocate them to the Wildlife Center of Virginia. The removal operation will take place at 10 a.m.

Hoping all will go well.

Oh dear, I hope that eagles do not have teritory like koalas and possums do in australia. we cannot move them successfully as they have marked out their territory and do not welcome invaders. I suppose eagles might be different.
