    Looks like some of the snow has cleared. I can see them now. Poor little wet fuzzies. They look so sad all snuggled up against mom (or dad).

    It looks like a much better day for them today and it is the first time in a weeks since I could see the babies, they are so big now and I am very happy to see 3 of them still.

    Yup, looks like the parents did a good job keeping them warm through all that snow.

    Also, thought I'd share a few more screenshots...

    Some close ups of one of the parents:

    I always wondered where the other parents was most of the day...

    Re: Eagle Cam

    I was wondering if any of you had seen the brief mention on Decorah about the accident in Norfolk with the Botanical Gardens' female eagle. This is another site in the Midwest which also covers Decorah but covers other birds of prey as well.
    http://www.raptorresource.org/

    And these are from Norfolk Botanical Garden, Virginia, which is where the mother eagle was killed by a landing plane at Norfolk International Airport
    http://www.wvec.com/marketplace/micr...eagle-cam.html

    http://www.norfolkbotanicalgarden.or...nity/eagle-cam

    The decision was made in Norfolk to remove the eaglets from the nest & they have been relocated to a wildlife rehab until they are old enough to fend for themselves. The fids are Decorah are coming along nicely though and are getting BIG.

    Those poor babies but it least they saved them and are being taken care of now.

    Wow the babies on the Decorah site are getting to be big these days, I havent looked at them for a good week and it is surprising how fast they grow.

    Re: Eagle Cam

    Yes, I heard about the Eagle in Virginia. My aunt and my sister were talking about the Eagles one day and when I came home from work, my sister says "The mom Eagle died". I was so scared, I instantly started checking to see if she was OK. After a few minutes I found out it was the Virginia Eagle, not my Eagle.

    It's so sad. But at least they will be taken care of and hopefully released back into the wild.

    Re: Eagle Cam

    Yes, I am still watching these little bubs. I have the page up all the time in another tab and check on them every day. I have no fids of my own to enjoy, so I pretend like these are my babies.

    Look how big they have gotten!

    Checkin' out the camera

    And still...

    Preening


    I'm going to be so sad when they finally leave the nest and I never see them again.

    They have grown so much haven't they! I keep another tab open on them too. Now they almost look as if they're the same size as the Virginia ones were when their mom died. I still find it funny how the smallest one sleeps lying down on his side with his feet stretched out behind him. Reminds of thos fake dead rubber chickens you can buy.

    Re: Eagle Cam

    Yeah it scares the hell out of me sometimes lol.

    Man the other night scared me too. There was a bad lightning storm and their nest was rocking back and forth so bad, I thought the babies were going to be blown right out. At first the picture was real choppy so I couldn't see them and got really scared, but after a few minutes, mom or dad came flying in and sat with them and the picture started getting better and I could see they were all OK. I was so relieved.

    I keep forgetting to look at them so whenever I see a new post here it reminds me to look at them. They sure are getting big these days and just so cute. I worry for them as well and I am very happy I didnt see them in the big storm. I am looking at them right now and see only 2 babies and lots of feathers I think on top of the nest and got nervous but just now the third baby came into view right in front of the camera, up close and very cute!

    Re: Eagle Cam

    I am kicking myself for not remembering to watch the babies! Are they still in the tree today? I am watching and have not seen them but I think I heard one making noise but then the camera moved and I was looking at horses in a barn so maybe they flew away already today

    Re: Eagle Cam

    I saw them earlier at around 5am, haven't seen them since.
    They could be in different parts of the tree or in the nest.
    They still rely on the parents for food so they might be back soon.

    Re: Eagle Cam

    The parents have started rebuilding the nest already. We should be seeing new eggs sometime around April.

    I still miss the previous babies, but apparently they are doing good and have all moved onto different states.
    I look forward to watching new babies grow up too.

    These are the last few screenshots I got of them before they left. <3
