We have also been seeing them in Lafeyette County, Wisconsin and they have returned earlier than usual to the Wisconsin River near Sauk City, a favorite viewing area here. Something else to be chalked up to this crazy winter.

Are these the same birds from last year that were such a hit, as everyone watched the nest?

Thanks for posting this. I was wondering if they would show the birds this year. If you appreciate eagles, I posted an earlier thread in Bird Watching - Nice Picture - about another eagle and it comes with quite a story about bonding.

The story was sent to me on e-mail, but after seeing the video that Jay3 posted, I was even more amazed by it. I'm glad your wife liked it and thanks again for the Decorah info.

Tell me, being uninitiated (as Eagles were not around in the Bay Area nor do I remember many in NYC !)....this (Iowa) is not their normal range, I assume ?

Actually, yes. What's special about the Decorah eagles is that a web cam was set up next to the nest and people were able to watch live as eggs were laid, hatched, and the young were raised. Very unique opportunity to watch these birds up close.

Apparently they are being watched again this year.

it was funny because there was a HUGE hawk across the fence looking at him. I think the hawk was mad because the Eagle ate the food. I never seen a hawk so big in my life. It was the size of the eagle.

Here in Southern Maryland I just started seeing them around. I assume that there is a mated pair close by because I always see them on the ground eating unless they are nestmates.
