Bob Anderson of the Raptor Resource Project reports that D1 Eagle has been located, and he was able to get this picture on Wednesday. She was perched in a tree on the top of a hill  just to the north of the Yellow River.  Anderson attempted to attract D1 with a road kill squirrel, but she was cautious and flew away. But that is good news says Anderson, "I'm glad to see that she has developed a fear of people."
Anderson then followed her and another immature eagle in a soar drifting north towards the Upper Iowa River and last saw her she was at about 400' up and about ten miles east of Decorah approaching the Upper Iowa River valley.
