It was fun watching the Momma in her nest until the man pouring himself a cup of coffee reminded me I don't have any this morning.....

Let me guess, his name was Murphy?

This is awesome! Thanks for sharing! About this time last year we had some birds lay a nest in our backyard barbeque, and the kids got the see the baby birds when they hatched. It was such a wonderful experience. I put out some bird houses recently so hopefully the same mating pair will return, but choose the birdhouses instead of inside our barbeque!!

kids are enjoying it right now.

sometimes i wonder what is going through an animals head! lol. They have no one to answer to or anything, and it's neat how they just do whatever they want. One of the birds is sitting there tilting his head back and forth. like he's exercising.

We watch the eagles of Hornby Island. http://www.hornbyeagles.com/webcam.htm

Last year they had 2 eggs and one never hatched and then the one little guy that did hatch named Phoenix eas doing great and just a few days before he was getting ready to fly, he dropped dead..... It was sort of dis-heartening because I had never seen an eagle cam before.....


Here are live web-cam sites for bears from the North American Bear Center not far from my house http://www.bear.org/website/
and the wolf cam in the same town from the Wolf Center http://www.wolf.org/wolves/experience/webcam.asp

We have been enjoying this too! I have 6 kids today and the oldest is 3, so our conversations have been pretty simple, but we have concluded that the mama has a beak, feathers, and eyes. She has three eggs to keep warm, and the Daddy bird is at work

Mama eagle rearranged her nest a lot while we were watching, so I'm pretty sure the kids think she eats grass. We also heard an airplane fly over and they were frustrated that we couldn't look up to see the plane

We were just watching the mama eagle. I gave them a choice between watching her and doing puzzles (they all LOVE puzzles) and they wanted to watch her!

Several of them asked where the daddy bird was, so I told them he was at work...lol She moved one time and they got to see the eggs. They thought that was the coolest thing ever! You should have seen them pointing and squealing.

I am planning on showing them again tomorrow. I really hope they hatch tomorrow and not over the weekend! It'd be such a great learning experience for them!

Nannyde, thank you SO much for the link!!

I will be checking out the others that previous posters put up as well!

I've been watching them too - we have local Eagles here - they have 2 eaglets already as our female lays her eggs in January - she is THE early bird! hehe!

I heard there are a couple of rabbits in the nest.. not so sure I want to see that!

OH eeek - lower left hand side of the nest - wabbit! They are panning in and out with the camera today.

They are supposed to hatch today so if anyone sees it happening please post. I should have taken today off.

It's the most exciting thing that's happened to me in months.

My computer is in the playroom, and I'll have it on all day. We also have the volume turned up, so if the monitor goes on screen saver mode, we'll be able to hear if something is happening.

The kids are all excited, I will feel so terrible if it doesn't happen today! I wonder if it's like OB's telling you your due date; something like only 10% of babies are actually born on their due date. Or is it pretty accurate to say they will hatch today? I'm hoping the latter.

That rabbit is still in the nest...it appears to have been untouched from what I can see. I wonder if she is saving it for them when they hatch??

How high is the nest?
About 80 feet.

How big is the nest?
5-6 feet across, about the same deep; it weighs about 1˝ tons.

How old is the nest?
The eagles built it in 2007. A previous nest close by fell when a windstorm broke one of the branches.

LOTS of movement going on in that nest! I can't tell if it's mama or papa eagle on the eggs right now, but whoever it is is very restless and keeps shifting around.

They have a video on youtube of the pip (the holes in the eggs) as they are hatching. It's pretty cool to watch this, we've had it up on the both computers here for the past couple of days.

We thought something was happening a few minutes ago but the Mama sat right back down.

False alarm

We can't get anything done today so we just gave up. I hope and pray they hatch while the kids are here. fingers crossed

If they hatch at nap I will HAVE to break my own nap rule... at least with the biggins.

there is a pause button, although I am not sure exactly if it will pick up from where it left off, or if it'll update to live again.

The pause button just picks up live when you push play again. But it will freeze the screen if someone is missing something cool!

I did see they also have a video of last year's babies on youtube, too, so If we miss it I'll bet we'll be able to see it there later. I sure hope something cool happens while the kids are here, though!

oh yeah, there is probably many videos of this. But it is pretty cool to know it's live. ykwim? actually seeing it real time is much different. And it's crazy to think how big these birds truly are! there are some pretty gigantic ones at our zoo. And I mean, you can't even tell how big they are unless they are right beside you! They are nearly as big as me!

Just saying...I'm REALLY glad to know I'm not the only one addicted to this!! When "Daddy Eagle" as the kids called him (or was it the mom??) came to the nest about 45 minutes ago, one shouted "LOOK!!! He's home from work!!" hahaha!!

The kids are sleeping now... I REALLY want them to hatch today so they can see!!!

is it guaranteed it is today? or could it be tomorrow or sunday?

I'm just wondering if i'm wasting my whole day for nada lol.


If i had older dck's i'd say they could stay this evening to watch at no charge IF they didn't have internet at home.

but because it's babies, they don't care. but the older kids are excited everytime they move the eggs around.

I know... what IS that?

I keep telling the brown pup and the white pup with one black eye to stay together in the back yard.

You never know when you could end up on Ustream in the bottom left corner of the screen... if ya know what I'm sayin

The Daddy is "prettier" (they both are in my eyes lol) but from what I have read the Momma has grayish around the eyes and Dad is more solid white.

They are saying that the hair is from the horses nearby...maybe to keep the babies warm. It's so windy

hahaha, i found a stray kitten 7 yrs ago. brand new. took it to the cabin with me, and had it on a leash while we were sitting around the yard.

there was a Falcon circling and we just looked up and saw it come swoop down!


snatched that cat up fast and falcon took off. MAN! that was scary.

eta: whoops, I snatched the kitten up, not the falcon

Thanks to all who have posted links to the live feeds. My kids and daycare kids have been enjoying checking on them. Today is the first day we have watched the eagles nest. I wasn't sure they would care, but I have left the video feed up and they play, then come check on the nest, play, check and so on. One is very worried all the eggs will hatch during nap time. Very interesting. I would have never thought to have searched something like this. Thanks again.

My kids are doing the same thing. The oldest is transfixed with it. We've learned more about Eagles in a couple of days then I've learned in my lifetime.

I didn't know they ate other birds What?????????????? It's going to take me a couple of days to get over that........................

Okay, I can't keep the kids cooped in the house any longer. We've got to go out to play now! Someone post if you see the hatchling, my phone will send me an email update!

I bet that eagle would like a Ustream Nannydehousecam to watch while she's hanging out doing her J. O. B. That has to get boring after a few weeks.

They should hang a laptop from a branch so they can have something to do while they wait. They could use their little beeks to click the mousepad.

I live on the river and we have several active eagles, I have a small dog and she can't be out without being watched. We had one eagle land on a branch and get a dead fish out of the river and eat it on the bank, we watched that for 1/2 hour. I always wondered why we never see many in the spring and now I know why. They are nesting. Very cool.

We raise cows, some sheep, and a couple pigs. Last year, we had a lamb die and before anyone could go get it out of the pasture, two bald eagles claimed it. It was at a perfect angle out my kitchen window that I could see the eagles, but not really the lamb. They are pretty amazing!

My son has been watching this at school. He said:

The females head is dirtier than the males.
The female prefers the eggs to be in a straight line.
The male prefers the eggs to be in a triangle.
The female is bigger than the male.
They go back and forth side to side when they are sitting on the eggs to keep them the right temperature.

Yep a couple hours ago the eagle was standing up and I spotted a little beak poking through the hole, but no baby eagle yet. My DD wants to take the laptop with us tomorrow when we go see my mom (she's still in a skilled nursing place) so we can show her the eagle.

How cute that she was so excited she had to call you! Too bad it was 8a though...

Here is a link to the video of the baby hatching on youtube.

Thank you NannyDe for making me absolutely addicted. Now I'm tuned in to see if I catch the first feeding. Then I'll be tuned in for others to hatch, and it will always be something until they become fledglings!! Oh dear. LOL

Did you see the baby a minute ago? I went to grab a shower, and when I came back there it was, in close up. The other two eggs are not hatched yet, though.

That's the same one, I think. Earlier today you could hear some kids playing in the background, and the mama was screeching, and she seemed a little agitated.

Hatchling #2 was born!! The first one is so big already compared to this new little hatchling! How amazing...

Here is a link to the first glimpse of the 2nd baby. It's a long video, but I think we get the first glimpse starting at 8:00 minutes or so.

My guess is that it's a muskrat, at least that's what it looks like.

ahhh, muskrat that's a good possibility. DH pointed out that it's a good deal bigger than a rat. Unless it's an ROUS (). I had forgotten to figure in the sheer size of the eagles.
