    Please let me know if there is any information/film on the Red Tailed Hawk. I’ve been tracking an active nest on my property in Mass. You’re welcome to come film this spring activity in my woods. Have seen them work on the nest, sit on the eggs, and seen the hatchlings fight and be fed just like the Eagles, but it’s the differences between these two raptures I,m interested in, how about you?

    What year was the new female accepted at the Decorah Iowa Nest?

  • evelyn ginsberg

    I have been watching the Decorah Iowa nest since 2011. I am in love with Eagles. This last pair were the most amazing parents ever. I commend all of you who go into their lives and let us see how nature works. You all do such great work. We’ll all be watching the eagles at the end of the year. We all feel like their parents. God Bless you all for doing such a great job! Evelyn

  • Peter Hasek

    What is the name and location of the fish hatchery where the eagles nest was located close to a fish “raceway”?
