AUGUST 4th

Simba is 16 weeks old. :loveshower:

He is still visiting the nest and sometimes stays for the night, he looks slimmer than before. :thumbs:

He has excellent landings on the fish and his calls are heard from very far :whistling: .

Most of the time, parents are there near him during meals, and are still helping him, like yesterday around 15:00 Nest Time. :bow:

I love Simba but I think it's time to say goodbye to him :wave:

Happy Weekend !

AuGUST 10th

This Simba is so spoiled :mrgreen: He is now almost 17 weeks old and still likes to be fed by parents.

2 days ago he slept on the nest with Mom on his side, like when he was a baby :rotf:

But, since he is flying, he lost much weight :thumbs:

I saw somewhere that some people think that he is a female.

He ia a MALE! confirmed by the DNA taken from him and his sib during ringing; Both were males.

Simba is so cute! I hope he'll have a good life and that we'll hear about him in the future. With his big violet ring, one can't miss him :rotf:

DECORAH eagles - updates by SOAR - 2019-08-30


D32 - male :D

4 August 2019
Last week, D32 had his (this is still an educated guess on gender) wrap changed on the right leg. Why still a wrap? Just like a human who has had a broken leg bone, supportive material is still used for several weeks after the cast is removed (think walking boot). D32 still needs a bit of support as he moves about the 10x20’ enclosure. New roomie? Yes, he’s sharing quarters with our best “model eater,” education bald eagle - Decorah (FKA D20).

13 August 2019
Last week D32's beak measurement was done and it is official that D32 is a boy. He weights 8 pounds. The vet wrap was removed and not replaced. While D32 is still favoring his right leg, he can move his foot and use his leg. He is getting up to a perch in the 10x20 he is sharing with education eagle Decorah.



D33 and DN 9 - both females

30 August 2019
Moved to 100' flight pen to build stamina and socialize with all ages of bald eagles.
