Bald Eagle Update: The Nests We Watch

We watch three nests the most.

Southwest Florida--  by North Fort Myers

Berry College--  Rome, Georgia, near Atlanta

Decorah, Iowa  (The one we visited last month)

And, we recently added a new one at the Alcoa factory in Bettendorf, Iowa.

The nice thing about having these nests scattered south to north is that the southern eggs are laid and hatch first.  That way, when we have the southern ones in the Galoot stage and fledging, we have the ones further north hatching and Bandidos.

Watching them is like a a mini soap opera.  Each nest has its own issues.
