DECORAH, Iowa (AP) - The Decorah eagles have moved to a new nest and will be offline for much of this year.
The Gazette in Cedar Rapids reports the eagles built a new nest about 400 feet from their old one. They have been watched throughout the world thanks to a camera that provided streaming video over the Internet.
Pat Schlarbaum, a biologist with the Department of Natural Resources' wildlife diversity program, calls eagles "compulsive nest builders" and says their move isn't related to cameras that have documented their lives since 2007.
Bob Anderson, who directs the Raptor Resource Project, says if nearby landowners give their support, his group will install news cameras this fall.
