Birds are such amazing creatures. I never really took the time to appreciate them until after my accident. If I’ve been faithful with my bird feeder duties, they’ll come for a visit. On days when I hurt and stay close to home I appreciate their entertainment.
And the golden finches enjoy the water well at the top of the hummingbird feeder.
But recenlty I’ve been enjoying the ultimate bird watching from the comfort of my desk. A pair of bald eagles in Decorah, Iowa are on web cam! Thanks to the Raptor Resource Project which works to preserve and strengthen the population of eagles, osprey and the like, we can get up close and personal with an eagle family.
The camera is close to the nest. You can watch Mama and Papa (they both take turns) sitting on their two eggs, adjusting position, and mending the nest now and then. Occassionally the camera adjusts to show you the surrounding scenery. Turn up your sound to hear other birds or a dog barking in the distance.
The first egg was laid on February 17. The second egg arrived three days later on the 20th. Eagle eggs incubate for 35 days, so the little ones should make their appearance around the weekend of March 23.
