Whatever floats your boat...
Amazing live feed of a Momma bald eagle laying on eggs soon to hatch!
OMG, just watched the mate land and take over hatching duty while his/her SO flew off, to eat presumably.
Excuse my excitement, but this is dramatic stuff for this city boy. :)
Decorah Eagles first egg pip and hatch:
She's got at least three chicks now that I can see! That's one hard-working mother. The poor girl hardly has a chance to get settled and comfortable before it's time to reposition again. It's a good thing I'm looking at this on a Sunday, or this would surely steal a couple of my hours from my employer today.
Cool stuff! Thanks, Kevin.
Same here. I see the older eaglet pounding on the younger one and I just have to turn it off, or I fear some fresh kill will be dropped in there and it won't be fully dead, ya know...?
Have you ever seen the Darwin biopic called "Creation"? It's got a scene in there that's just amazing, where Darwin is picnicking with his family and his little girls are running about innocently enough. One points to a rabbit going under a log and someone comments about how God made such a beautiful world. Darwin thinks for a moment. He watches the rabbit go into a hole, and then you see what he's imagining- everything time-lapsed into a brutal evolutionary battle for survival. The rabbit falls prey to a bird who accidentally knocks it's baby out of a nest. The baby quickly dies and decomposes and is broken down by the insects and the dust pretty much takes him away.
Back to Darwin, with a strained look on his face. I didn't know what a person of faith he was and how he struggled with the knowledge of how his soon-to-be-published theories would undermine the church. Very interesting stuff.
Anyway, watching the eagles nest is a meditative endeavor, for sure.
