American Bald Eagles.

Post by Jo UK » April 5th, 2011, 10:24 am

There are many webcams on Bald Eagle nests in USA and Canada.

Please post links and discussions here.
Here is one webcam with a very good close-up view of a nest.
Perhaps our American or Canadian members can give us information and more webcam links?

this is rather sophisticated camera: it can zoom and turn so that the "scenery" can change. it seems that the camera must be in some kind of housing and it can be moved around in it without the eagles seeing it. therefore it can give an eagle eye's view around the nest! :thumbs:

they are so tiny and already ready to fight! :shock: they were beak wrestling and they are only two or three days old and smaller is even younger! :slap: (it looked like arm wrestling :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bz0ZyeUJSCw)
the smaller then pretended to be dead. i think the mother-eagle offered some food to it but it didn't move.
- Linda and Sulev did not pay any attention to the chicks' fighting either.

Here´s a text about Bald Eagles, written by David Hancock in 2010.
The reasons for changing a nest site, mentioned at the beginning of the article, are perhaps also interesting for the WTE discussion.

There are reports as of about noon our time today (8 PM EEST) that the third chick is beginning the process of pecking its way out of the eggshell. :bounce: They say it should be out anytime in the next 24 to 48 hours. :loveshower:

OMG!!! Just now as I was watching & typing this post, the third chick is nearly out! Mom stood up & there it was, pushing its little naked, pink self out! :headroll: :loveshower: :D

I was amazingly lucky! I happened to notice Mom was moving as if to stand up, then WOW, there was the opened egg with the chick struggling free. :loveshower:

A couple more pictures:

It seems it is difficult to get all three chicks at once to be content. "Settle down, you rowdy youngster. It is time for bed!"

I found a Y-tube video of the third egg hatching. The first half of this I did not see, as I was not watching then. I observed from where the video says "7:02" (PM-- we don't usually use 24 hr clock designations). It's a wonderful documentation of the entire process. :headroll: Sounds in the background include a horse, mourning doves, other birds, & traffic.

It is video I has photographed on April, 06th, 2011, but to expose on the necessary forum I am not able, but the moment interesting (in a nest two baby birds and one egg), therefore I have decided to expose on forum Looduskalender. For it I ask me to excuse. I do not know English and consequently participation in English-speaking forums for me practically not probably, or is possible, but is very limited. Transfers into the computer on English language sometimes simply are not correct, about what in advance I ask me to excuse.

Venegor, you got some wonderful videos & photos of the Decorah, Iowa, USA bald eagles. :loveshower: Thank you so much for sharing them here. This is definitely the correct forum for them. And we can understand your comments just fine. I am glad you are enjoying our American eagles. They are a close cousin to the European white-tailed eagle.
