There is also sound available and other chicks that are due in 8 days. You can view other mom eagles by clinking the "live cam" picture at the top.


I feel like an expectant mother! Can't wait to see the chicks!

The link keeps timing out. I have to go right now. Be back later to see if it's working. If you can't get it here then copy and paste it into your browser.

Oh, oh oh, mom's on the nest now! Or is it dad? Do they swap or does dad feed mom constantly? :D

Click on the picture and it'll take you to a site where you can click on an Africam. It's a watering hole where the wild animals come and get a drink. I guess if you get an account you can do live chat while you watch.

I can't wait until the eaglets hatch! I guess there's night vision too!

I'm excited about this!

And we're doing something like this because?

I'm not a member of PETA, but I think this has ethical ramifications.

I don't know. How do you mean?


I think it's a wonderful educational tool. My daughter's class has been keeping up on the progress of the eggs and Momma. She has a better perspective on wild life and more respect for their environment. This is an opportunity of a life time to be able to watch an eagle with her chicks live, not in captivity or on a TV show.

Until the eaglets are born it'll be a little more exciting than watching paint dry. And the sounds in the background are cool.

I know! I hope she doesn't mind. She doesn't look any more pissed off than a bald eagle usually does.

Pelican Harbor Bald Eagle Nest, Santa Cruz Island, California has lots of bird background noise. Sounds serene, like I'm there. So peaceful. Momma's just looking around. So attentive. I wonder if she sleeps?

Two Harbors Bald Eagle Nest, Santa Catalina Island, California

go to this one the Momma just flew in


gosh, sorry about the size.


Does anyone know who's bigger mom or dad and who's sitting on the nest or do they take turns? There was a really big one that just flew in and fixed the nest a little then flew off.

You don't have to pretend you were kidding. We were all thinking it.

That's what I want to know. Anyone?

Just a few minutes ago a really big eagle came in. The one on the nest was the small (bunneh type). :tongue

Anyone?

All I know is that the female is typically the more annoying of the two.

Female eagles are almost always significantly bigger. Sometimes the male and female can be the same size, or rarely the male a hair bigger (Male at the max end of his size range and female a runt for her size range). So if there's one much bigger, it's mom.

I clicked on the Two Harbors feed and signed up for the live chat. i'm chatting and just found out the male is in the nest now and the mom usually sits at night.

So, you're right! It was dad. What a good daddy!


If anybody wants to chat with me in there I'm Terriberri and i'm looking away right now. Cause i'm here. :D

Right now I'm multitasking. Cleaning, goofing off, posting...

I'm chatting with these people and I got Bear.org. The cubs are in the den right now sleeping.

I also got to see a momma owl and she lifted off her eggs and I seen a baby!

You have to go to the Two Harbors cam on the link and click on the live feed. It takes you to Usteam.tv. Type in the search box "the owl box" and it'll take you there. She so pretty!
