2. Decorah Eagle Cam Live Feed

Viewers missed the Decorah Eagles in 2013, because they built a new nest (N2). This year, the camera is adjusted to the new nest, which the eagle couple has prepared with soft materials in the nest cup. They have been courting. The Decorah Mom is younger than Dad, and is easily differentiated by her “eyeshadow” and darker feathers interspersed with the white ones on her head and tail. Dad has a fully white head and tail and is noticeably smaller than Mom, as bald eagle males are normally 25% smaller than females.[18]Raptor Resource Project Blog explains courtship and copulation:

In Decorah, courtship activities begin in late fall. Mom and Dad bring sticks and branches into the nest, eventually adding soft nesting material as courtship deepens. Food is (often) shared. The eagles vocalize together and spend more time in close proximity, moving from sitting side by side to gently pecking and footing, wing and tail brushing, and body rubbing with tail twisting and vocals. Mom is letting Dad know in no uncertain terms that she is receptive and ready for copulation.

3.Southwest Florida Eagle Cam #1

This nest is in Fort Myers, Florida. The website reports that E4, age 60 days, is currently on the nest.

Eaglet Growth

The young birds grow rapidly, they add one pound to their body weight every four or five days. At about two weeks, it is possible for them to hold their head up for feeding.
By three weeks they are 1 foot high and their feet and beaks are very nearly adult size.

Between four and five weeks, the birds are able to stand, at which time they can began tearing up their own food.
At six weeks, the eaglets are very nearly as large as their parents.
At eight weeks, the appetites of the young birds are at their greatest. While parents hunt almost continuous to feed them, back at the nest the eaglets are beginning to stretch their wings in response to gusts of wind and may even be lifted off their feet for short periods.

Decorah Eagles 2014 Livecam

January 9, 2014

The Decorah Eagles camera is back, after being offline for nearly a year! This morning, I was pleased to actually see one of the eagles, doing some ‘housekeeping’ in the nest. Raptor Resource Project says:

Welcome to Decorah Eagle Cam your one stop for live streams, videos and alerts for the amazing saga of the Decorah eagles. For those of you new to the craze, the birth of 3 eaglets has been witnessed live by millions and become a viral internet phenomenon.

Through the genius of the Raptor Resource Project a 24 hour webcam has been placed so that the world may watch the growth and lives of a family of bald eagles. We here at Decorah Eagle Cam have embraced this amazing opportunity and have put together content from across the world wide web in one place for your convenience. In addition, we have set up a system of alerts to let you know when the real action takes place.

Please have a look around the site and enjoy!
