Don't Miss The Live Hatching These Cute Bald Eagles

The bald eagles of the Decorah North Nest roost high in a white oak tree in a secluded valley north of Decorah, Iowa. During the nesting season the female lays 1-3 eggs and the adult pair takes turns incubating them. Hatching about 35 days later, the eagle chicks depend on both parents for food, warmth and protection until they fledge at 10-14 of age. The eagles eat both live and dead fish, squirrels, birds, rabbit, muskrat, deer, possum and anything else they can catch or find.

Established in 1988, the non-profit Raptor Resource Project specializes in the preservation of falcons, eagles, ospreys, hawks, and owls. They create, improve, and directly maintain over 50 nests, provide training in nest site creation and management, and develop innovations in nest site viewing, bringing people closer to the natural world.
