I was very lucky to have to make a visit to our on site computer today. I got an early start and was pleased to arrive safely on an unseasonably warm day in late-May. When I approached I could hear the sounds of eagles at the nest amid a constant breeze. I recorded video while I dealt with a few computer issues. Checking in on the image now and then I glanced at the video feed I saw a chick wrestling with what looked like a six foot eel in the nest.
It is amazing to see how quickly these eaglets are growing. Now at 6-7 weeks they appear to loaf around the nest bowl. Occasionally they stretch and flap their wings. In only a few weeks they will begin to consider making the leap into flight.
Please join us on youtube for video highlights of my visit to the site (several videos)...the webcam still offers the best view of the nest!
Until Next Time,
