I don't think I've seen this posted yet...apologies if it's out there already!

Some farm in Iowa has a cam on a pair of nesting Eagles:

One chick hatched yesterday, and another this morning. One egg left to go :)

You can also occasionally catch a couple of horses on the ground under the nest.

I think this is the same one I posted last year! It was fun to watch :yes:

Yep, it is. Same highway noise as last time, and comparing it to the screen shot (http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/199989_1979676053163_1281017695_2382852_2457637_n. jpg) I took last year...same tree!

Neat!

I am terribly entertained with the assortment of dead critters I have seen on the nest. First it was half a fish, then one of the little sparrows, and now a squirrel. :lol:

Giving this a bump!

The eaglets are nearly all grown up with real feathers and everything. It is a rainy afternoon in Decorah, and the youngsters have been flapping to dry their wings...and beating their poor, drenched mother over the head.

Hilarious :lol:
