Review for Saving Our Avian Resources S O A R, Dedham, IA, USA
I love all birds, back yard bird feeder birds, birds of prey but I have to say that eagles are my very favorite! I have watched the Decorah nest cams from the first year they were installed. I eagerly watched each year and grew to love Mom and Dad Decorah and the eaglets and Bob Anderson and his crew and SOAR. I grieved when Bob passed and with each eaglet that was lost, and when Dad D. disappeared. I rejoiced with the eaglets that spread their wings and soared high in the skies. Than one year the youngest little eaglet seemed to be so lonely when his siblings fledged. He was all alone and would call to his siblings. I think (this is just my theory) he tried to join them and maybe wasn't quite ready to fly. We all know the tragic result of that attempt. Then came SOAR! Our heros! Thank heavens for the hard working, loving and caring people that work at SOAR and give of their time and efforts to treat these beautiful birds, and bring them back to health. There are many birds flying in the skies and doing.... what birds do, thanks to SOAR. Even little Decorah. He is growing into a handsome eagle (just like his dad) and though he will never fly like his siblings, he is alive and will live to be a beautiful mature eagle and educate a lot of children and adults about eagles. People that have never been up close to a real live eagle. All because of the dedicated staff at SOAR!!
