Eagle Nest Cam LIVE!


If you enjoy nature and especially bird watching, you really need to check out the Nest Cam at http://raptorresource.org/falcon_cams/index.html
This "bird's eye view" sports a camera that is pointed right at a live eagle's nest with live streaming coverage! This weekend we tuned in and watched the 3 eggs turn into 2 eaglets ... (one egg is still taking its time to hatch.) Even Nolan was cheering to see the new little eagle.

The eagle nest is located along the bluffs of beautiful Decorah, Iowa--also home to Luther College, my alma mater--so this has sentimentality to me as well. Day and night check in on the eagle family. It's especially neat when both eagle parents are there to swap off nest duty or when they rearrange the little ones under them. You may even be lucky enough to see the fuzzy little guys!

If you click on the little square box on the far right of the white bar below the photo you will get a FULL screen view of the Ustream!
