This spot affords a nice view of an active eagle nest in the tree to the east. The eagles built this nest in 2013. During that year, we were not able to watch the eagles because they were no longer using the nest that had the webcam. Before the 2014 nesting season, a new webcam was placed above the new nest. The original nest that the pair of birds used is located to the west between the house and out building. In the summer, leaves may hide the nest and the young eagles may have grown up and already left the nest, or they may still reside in the area. The Trout Hatchery here provides easy meals. From mid February to June this nest is a very active and interesting site. The web camera above the nest records all the action and is the most viewed eagle webcam in the world!

The webcam allows us to literally have a bird’s eye view into the lives of the eagles. According to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, "During the 2010 nesting season, the site recorded more than 325,000 unique visitors from 125 countries, and nearly 3.9 million site visits as viewers logged in repeatedly to check the progress of the three chicks hatched there in early April." You may view the eagle webcam at this website: Decorah Eagle Cam
