Update on the Eagles
Wow, you won't believe how fast eagles grow. Here are some photos that show you their size when they were first born...and where they are today. These images are from the Decorah Eagle Cam near the Fish Hatchery in Decorah, Iowa.
April 7, two eaglets had hatched.
April 10, all three eaglets have now hatched
May 1, feeding time by both female and male eagles
May 4, taking a nap - every day the adult eagles redo the nest,
shredding cornstalks for bedding
May 4, some family time - check out those feathers on the oldest eaglet, changing from down to feathers; boy they eat a lot of fish
May 4, they tend to lay in a pile - one adult is always nearby
May 6, what are these big feet for...they are very wobbly when they try to walk
May 6, wings work...now if I only knew what to do with them
In less than one month, they have grown from just being hatched to this size. Amazing, and what fun to watch via the Decorah Eagle Cam. You can watch too, here is the link: http://www.luther.edu/eaglecam/stream/
