The bird known as D14, which had been fitted with a satellite transmitter to track it, died about 50 miles southwest of the nest where it was born at the Decorah Fish Hatchery.
The eagle was electrocuted, found dead at the base of a power pole, KCRG in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, reported. It was the second eagle from the famous nest to die that way – a spring hatchling was found dead in July, the station reported. In all, 14 eagles have been hatched at the nest, and the majestic birds have fans around the world – and their own Facebook page.
Here's the nest, thanks to the webcam managed by the Raptor Resource Project:
