I first saw this on TV news and then Theresa at Homestread Needlearts mentioned it in her newsletter: http://www.homesteadneedlearts.com/ . Now, I am so addicted to this webcam: http://raptorresource.org/falcon_cams/index.html , I have split my screen and keep it running all day. I may never get anything accomplished.
This morning about 8:15 AM- CDT one eagle got off the nest and feed the two eaglets that have hatched, there are three eggs in the nest. Then it flew off and within a couple minutes either it or the other returned. I haven’t figured out who is who yet, I remember reading the female is usually larger. At 9:00 AM CDT both eagles were in the nest. And at about 9:15 both were standing. As I write this at 10:30 AM-CDT I think Mom is on the nest and Dad is setting on a near by limb and occasionally comes over to check things out. I think he is suppose to be attending to the nest but in typical make fashion I am sure he is waiting for her to get off the nest and take care of this too (typical male).
The webcam does move and obviously sometimes makes a noise because the nesting eagle will whip it’s head around to check it out.
These eagles are so impressive…it makes me want to stitch eagle heads forever:
Hope everyone has time to stitch today! Me too;-) ttfn…sue
