Eagle Cams

At this time of year there are seveal places that have web cameras on bird nests. I was watching one of an eagle in Iowa just minutes ago. Some of the eagles are starting to lay eggs but it may be a couple of weeks before there are any chicks. Most eagles will come back to the same nest year after year so it is easy for watchers to set up the web cams so that thousands of people can watch the birds at the same time. This is one really good use of all this electrion technology that is available now.
You can visit the one I watched at http://www.raptorresource.org/falcon_cams/ This site also has links to some of the other raptor bird cams but not all were working when I tried them.
It is so cool to watch these wonderful wild birds as they raise their chicks.
