Pretty cool webcam

It's a webcam pointed at a bald eagle nest off the western coast of Canada.
It's streaming live, so you can check in and see the eagles trading places, incubating the eggs, there are two in the nest. How cool is that ?

  That is cool. I was watching it just sitting on the nest and something about the way an eagle's eyes look makes it seem like they always have an attitude...

"Hey...Are youz lookin' at me? I said ARE YOUZ LOOKIN' AT ME?!"

: )

  Soon there will be a computer controlled rifle hooked up to it.

That is a pretty nifty webcam. He(she?) is sitting there nice and peaceful. So dignified.

You know it's gonna be cool when the eggs hatch.

  Indeed. When it happens I just don't will be when I'm not watching. I'm going to keep this open for a few days though. See if anything neat happens.

  I saw something similar with osprey, some years ago. I remember being surprised how long I could watch it without getting bored - all the activity consisted of the mom sitting, keeping watch, and the dad coming by every fifteen minutes or so. But it was neat, I wish I'd gone back to see the babies.

Too many people logged on during these due dates.
More bandwidth available on Monday.

  I finally saw it!
However, there has been talk that there will be no eaglets. The eggs are speckled in areas and if those are actual holes, they have been there for a week and so the birdies are dead. One of the "experts" made a post saying:
"This is a sad moment. It appears that the Hornby Island bald eagle eggs are infertile."
Others claim that since the eagles continue to lay on the eggs, they must know something that we don't.

I wouldn't know.

I just tuned in on time to see "Dad" get up, cry like I've never known an eagle to cry before and switch places with "Mom". That was interesting.

And..in reference to a [creepy] P-cam.. while my nest is a little prettier, let me assure you that my life is waaay less exciting. Plus, I've got no buns in the oven.

That's good. It's much better to have buns on your butt than in the oven.

But I can assure you that given a choice between watching an eagle's nest or a sweet P webcam the males here wouldn't have to think twice about it....and I'm guessing a few of the females too : )
