Timewasters: Eagle cam


Live Broadcast by Ustream.TV

Let’s see now, we had puppy cam, then we had bear cam, let’s welcome eagle cam.

Down in Decorah, Iowa, a couple of eagles are about to hatch three new eagles at the Decorah Fish Hatchery. They’ve lived 80 feet up in a tree and this isn’t the first time they’ve been subjects of eagle voyeurs.

If that doesn’t do it for you, there’s still light bulb cam.

Update 3:39 p.m. – In other aviary news, an owl took the opportunity afforded by a window-repair project at the Minnesota History Center.

” At the direction of the Raptor Center, work crews quickly set up plastic sheeting around the owl. The Raptor Center folks arrived around 1 p.m. and removed the bird for evaluation and probable release. Steps have been taken to insure the building is sealed properly against birds and other wildlife for the rest of the window repair,” according to Jessica Kohen, a spokesperson for the History Center.

    We have more cams and a forum at http://WWW.raptorresource.org. The hummingbird cam referenced above is also really cool.

    The eaglets should start hatching around April 1.

    Thanks for posting this, Bob. I’m always amazed at eagles and their nesting habits. There are a pair of eagles that have a nest in Eden Prairie where 62 Crosstown and Highway 212 split. (I haven’t checked yet to see if it’s still there this year.) It’s on top of one of those large light poles along the freeway. At first I thought it was a hawk’s nest but then one day saw an eagle take off from it. I thought it an odd spot for an eagle’s nest, right in the middle of freeway traffic, but who knows. And Amy, thanks for the link to the Raptor Resource site with the other cams.
