Sounds like the Decorah cameras are nearing the time when they will be turned off for the season.  The kids may stay around for another couple of months learning how to be eagles but there's less and less to be seen in camera range.  Still we got a nice view of Mom and two of the kids looking out over Trout Creek this morning. 

The father disappeared this spring. He was around 21 years old, which is old for an eagle.  But he wasn't showing signs of ill health.  He simply vanished without warning.   There's another male who has been staying near the family nest without getting too close  The Decorah website says courting generally happens around October.  So we hope there will be a new eagle family soon but it is not certain.
