Other than the fact that I find many quilters are bird feeders/watchers, this blog has nothing to do with quilting, but I thought if you have any avian interests you might be as fascinated as I am with this Raptor Research Project.
a live stream) starring Mr. and Mrs. Bald Eagle and their three eaglets. The first of three eggs was laid Feb. 23rd. The first hatched 4/1, the second 4/3 and the 3rd 4/6. This 6' wide nest is perched nearly 80 feet high in a cottonwood tree near Decorah, Iowa USA which is in the NE corner of Iowa, very near the Minnesota border. This is evidenced by the fact that the hidden camera gets snow-crusted every so often while they are still having snow storms. This nest is built near the Decorah Fish Hatchery which accounts for the fact that about every 20-30 minutes one of the parents flies in with a fresh fish....or some other goodie for the babies.
Somewhere I read that these eaglets will be as big as their parents in about 8 weeks. In the few days I have been watching I can see their growth but worry about the smallest of the eaglets who never seems to get his share of the food at meal time.
You can also follow the RPP Blog for updates on the progress of the babies.
