Eagles in Brtitish Columbia by sighthound on 30 May 2006 10:59pm
 
I've become addicted to this site. It's a webcam focused on a bald eagle nest. There are two very healthy chicks. They're fully feathered now and will start trying to fly before too long.

My machine isn't downloading the images. I'll have to stick to spotting the buzzards and kestrels in Scotland!

Try again. Sometimes it takes me 2 or 3 times to get the image to come up. And sometimes the screen just goes black - probably the battery re-charging itself.

The parents are very devoted. I keep trying to identify what they've caught to feed the chicks. Cottontails mainly.

What are buzzards like in Scotland? What we call "buzzards" here are usually turkey vultures with dramatic bald, very red heads.

And "Kestral" was the name of one of the pups from Kami's litter - she just went to live in her new home in Nevada (sigh)....

Today, I'm just getting a black screen. I don't know what the splodges were. When it's working, you get a really clear view of the whole nest with both chicks (and the parents when they're there.)

Wait, I just tried it again and it's working now. The chicks are starting to "exercise" their wings. They'll be flying before long.
