Those of you who don’t watch much national news might have missed the story, so I thought I’d mention it. (You know me and my webcams.)
There’s a pair of bald eagles nesting in Decorah, Iowa, and they’re on live streaming video 24/7, compliments of the Raptor Resource Project. The nest is high in a cottonwood tree at a fish hatchery — nice digs for fish-eating raptors. Someone is monitoring the camera and zooming and panning as necessary for the best possible view. Two of three eggs have hatched and the third looks like it might hatch today. The eaglets are adorable balls of gray fluff and the adults are as spectacular as only adult bald eagles can be.
