Decorah North Update

Since we didn't set up a thread for this nest, I'm going to post this here for the record.

First - here's a link to information about the autopsy report on DN2 - http://raptorresource.blogspot.com/2016 ... eport.html - with thanks to the Raptor Resource Project. DN2 died from Methomyl which is licensed for use as an insecticide, but it sometimes used (illegally) in higher doses to kill animals considered pests, such as raccoons. The Raptor Resource Project's blog explains why they believe it was this sort of unlicensed use that poisoned DN2 and the female (the female recovered, perhaps because she ate less of the poisoned meat or perhaps because her mature digestive system could handle it better. The possibility that this poison may have been used illegally was brought to the attention of the appropriate authorities, and perhaps the tragic loss of this famous eaglet will help educate people of the unintended consequences of using this very lethal poison.

And in happier news, DN1 fledged July 9, and is doing great! He or she is 14 weeks old today, and from what I can see on Facebook, hasn't been seen at the nest for a couple of days, though s/he was spotted nearby on the 21st. I believe today (July 24) is the last day the cam will be streaming, though I'm not sure about that.

Added -
1:49 pm central time
I think the zoomer has found DN1 hiding in the trees - wonderful to have a final look before the cam goes down!

Thanks for bringing the news here, dsguill - being able to follow these eagles is indeed a mixed blessing.

Rest in peace, young one - and fly free forever. sad
