Decorah Eagles WebCam- LIVE

Hey, remember the Decorah Eagle Cam? If you don’t, you probably never saw a baby eagle hatch on live streaming video. But now you have another chance! The mom eagle at the Decorah, Iowa fish hatchery is … pregnant? Do birds get “pregnant”? Anyway, let’s say she has a frittata in the oven. And she’s going to lay those eggs any day now, at which point you can begin obsessively monitoring them for signs of wee tiny eaglets.

There’s not much to see yet, but check back often — the first egg showed up on Feb. 23 last year. Here’s what that looked like, so you can recognize it when you see it:

The eggs should take a little over a month to hatch, and the eaglets start getting eagle training lessons (like how to fly) about three months later. Best part: baby eagles totally come out looking like Doc Brown. (Source)

    So much man made noise - so sad to know they will be deaf when they grow up. Good eyes but deaf.

    I can't catch the Eagles in the nest lately. Keep missing them.

    Please keep Eaglets in view of the camera. If you're not going to do this, you may as well turn off this live feed. If they've left the nest while I was at work for the past couple of days, well darn it.

    She's sleeping. So peaceful all curled up with her head tucked under her wing. The wind is blowing so she might be cold poor thing. She stood up and turned around but couldn't tell if there were eggs or not.

  30. 3 eggs still in nest for past month.

    Saw 2 chicks and 2 eggs this morning at feeding time

  33. mad83815 says:

    Oops, maybe only 2 chicks and 1 EGG as now the other white area looks like feathers.

  34. mad83815 says:

    About 12:30 PT Dad showed up and Mom left for the grocery store. Dad fed the chicks and then settled down to watch the sports network and keep the chicks warm.

    I think I saw three chicks and 1 egg. The mom keeps tucking the babies underneath her when they try to squirm out. Yesterday she had a fine coating of snow on her and the nest, but now it is gone.

  36. mad83815 says:

    Watched "survival of the fittest" episode here this morning. 1 chick kept getting all the food and when the other tried to get its share, the greedy one sat on its head.

  37. mad83815 says:

    Definitely 3 chicks now. Hope Mom & Dad can keep up with the chow they'll need. Being near a fish hatchery should help, if they have access.

  38. Me-Me says:

    Thank You :)

  39. mad83815 says:

    Thank you so much for zooming in and out, showing the chicks up close and the surrounding area. It was Great!
