Our traveling girl is back in Iowa. Latest satellite fixes show that she is just north of Elkader, Iowa.....sticking close to the Turkey river. Good source of fish and it is also fairly rugged country in that part of Iowa with lots of woods and probably lots of prey for a hungry bald eagle. Actually she overshot her mark and had to turn around and head back NNW. She is about 34 miles SE of Decorah, Iowa and the natal nest area. Wonder if she called ahead to let dad and mom know she is coming home?
I guess I'd have to say that this has been fun for me....following her flight all the way north about 1,000 miles to Hudson's Bay in Canada and then back home. Just amazing. Truly amazing.
