Decorah Eagles live Cam – Decorah, Iowa.
You are watching the Decorah Eagles live cam 2021. The male Eagle(slightly smaller in size) and female Eagle in like manner help in the incubation of the eggs. The parents help equally in providing food for their offspring. The typical timeline of events every season for the Decorah Eagles pair is as follows. As fall comes into full swing in October, this nesting pair begins courtship. Then as time progresses, mating occurs which is around late January to early February. Finally, our favorite time of year, egg-laying! This occurs from mid to end February with little eaglets(not to mention, CUTE!) arriving sometime in late March to early April.
The Eagles have decided to nest elsewhere this year(2021). You will still see them here from time to time.
This camera was Set up and is maintained by the Raptor Resource Project, a non-profit organization for the preservation of falcons, eagles, ospreys, hawks, and owls. Don’t forget to check out the Decorah North Nest.
