    Decorah Eagles
    Decorah Eagles' nest is located near a farm in Decorah, Iowa. The Decorah Fish Hatchery is across the road. Smart eagles building a nest so close to food. It was built in a cottonwood tree.

    2015 Happenings
    The folks watching the Decorah eagle nest report that the eagles are back getting the nest ready for this year's brood. The weather has been a bit warmer than usual so nesting could begin sooner. I caught one, then, both of them on the nest this afternoon. In the screen shots look carefully inside the nest. They brought something into the nest that I recognized. It is light tan. Can you guess what it could be? Let me know your thoughts. It was a windy day in Iowa too. Look at the head feathers blowing. Looks like a bad hair day!
