Live wild eagle cam

This is the coolest thing, if you are a nature lover. It is a live cam of a bald eagle in the wild - yesterday I saw this eagle feeding it's newborn eaglet! Check it out...and if you see it doing something cool, post here please!

These eagle cams are fun to watch. The first one has part of a fish behind the eagle, it must be for a snack later.

I just saw the baby eagle in VA a few moments ago.

Remimd me to stay on the "good side" of an eagle. That beak and those talons look like they could do some serious damage.

Just tuned in and the mother is tearing apart a fish and then the baby is eating from her beak. Another fish is laying on the side.

I went back and she is crouching on the nest so I can't see the baby anymore.

Correction - the chat says it's the male on the nest. Beautiful bird!

This one should have an egg in just a few days and an eaglet in about 35 days according to the cam owner. I like that it has sound but of course being near Seattle it has rain on the lens. Well not rain, but a light mist.

Last year the baby suddenly died. Hope for better outcome this year.

He also edits out some of the interesting video and puts it on this forum.

Ole mom is having a tough day. Iowa is getting some really high wind and she is struggling a bit to keep herself on top of the eaglets.

Couple of close calls. Kids want out to play.

I've been watching a Great Horned owl in the park near my house. She is sitting on a nest on the very top of a 30 or so foot snag.

Yes it was. She was a marvelous bird to watch , especially in her hatching and raising 3 little babies this year. I hope Dad is able to provide for them going forward.
