DECORAH (KWWL) -

If you've been watching the Decorah Eagle Cam Thursday, you may have noticed two of the eaglets are no longer in the nest.

Fear not! This week's storms did not claim them.

Bob Anderson, director of the Raptor Resource Project and the man who runs the Decorah eagle cameras and live stream, said two of this year's three eaglets fledged on Wednesday, meaning they flew off and left the nest.

The third eaglet, Anderson said, hatched about five days behind the others, so it may still have a day or two before it flies away.

The eaglets aren't gone for good, however. Anderson said they'll likely stick around the nest until late July. When the eaglets fledged last year, he said, they took off to the Decorah Eagles' old nest, which is also under camera surveillance.
