WILDLIFE WATCHING -- A pair of bald eagles are back raising a brood for the world to see.
Three eggs have been hatched, and the real work has begun.
A beautifully positioned web cam over a bald eagle nest at the Decorah Fish Hatchery in Iowa is catching the attention of millions of viewers. The web cam gained fame last year as people logged on to watch the chicks hatch, grow and fledge.
The site linked above has video clips of the eggs being layed by the female eagle as well as the hatching events.
Read on for more details and links.
Raptor Research Project plans to have six live nest cams this year. See news and updates on the RRP Facebook page, which is easy to follow.
Two books celebrating the 2011 eason of the eagles include:
- The EEEee's & Me by Sherri Elliott.
The Decorah Bald Eagles, a coffee table book by Char Fleming, Cynthia Hansen, Darlene Miller, Sherri Elliott with more than 430 photos from the 2011 season.
