Eagle Watch

The girls and I have been watching some different Eagle Cams, cameras that are set up over a nest.  We’ve been watching two pretty intently, and I found a third one today.

They are keeping journals about the eagles.  They are supposed to record the temperature and any behaviors that they notice while we watch (just 5 or 10 minutes until hatching occurs).  At some point, they are also supposed to write a report on eagles for me as well.

So, links…  This is the first one we found thanks to a Twitter friend.  It’s in Minnesota, near Minneapolis, and according to what I learned, they layed their eggs really early.  They are expected to hatch near the end of February.

The second one is at Berry College in Rome, Georgia.  I have to say, I’m the most excited for this one, because it’s supposed to start hatching any day now!  If you have any questions, the people on the chat at Livestream seem to be really knowledgeable and friendly and will answer just about any question.  (Including the square root of Pi.)

I found the third one at Livestream as well.  It’s in Virginia, and they haven’t laid their eggs yet, but they are expecting that to happen any day now, as well.

It is has been so very fascinating to sit and watch these beautiful birds.  If you get a chance, just sit for a few minutes.  You will really enjoy watching these majestic creatures of God.


[eta – in case anyone doubts my sanity, here’s a picture of the setup.  Nest approach, camera 2 and camera 1.]

Isn’t this an interesting picture?  It’s both nests at the same time.  The right nest is at 19 degrees today, and the left nest is at 27.
