In case you would like to stalk one of the Decorah eagles

The web cam all summer has been a hit with the public. The Decorah Eagles are famous, and have a lot of fans!

The Raptor Resource Project has decided to band and place a transmitter on at least one of the birds. They may do this for more than one, but at this time I'm only aware of one having been "beeped" up.

Here is a video of the release of the bird, who has a backpack installed. This is the kind of transmitter I'm thinking about getting for my hawk this year . . . only the eagle has a much larger package as it has to carry a battery that will last a long time.

Eagle Release

A web site has been established that will track daily the movement of this young eagle.  So far, she is not moving much from the nest area, and who can blame her, as there is abundant fish, and the parents have not decided to chase them off yet. 

So, click on the link, and follow where she goes.
