This is the Decorah Eagle's fourth nest. The first nest was destroyed in a storm. Their second nest was built in 2006, and they used it for six years before building a new nest. This new nest, their third, was also destroyed during a storm in July 2015. After their third nest was destroyed, the good folks at Raptor Resource Project, which make this cam available, built the eagles their fourth nest, which is the nest which they are currently using.

The pair first nested in Decorah during the winter of 2007-08.
How old are the eagles?
The female is estimated to be about 11 years old, and the males age is unknown.
How can I tell the male eagle from the female?
While telling the difference between the two can be difficult, the male is actually smaller with a more smooth head. The female's head feathers appear to be more 'ruffled'.
