Oh, you must check out this livestream of an eagles’ nest in Decorah, Iowa. Over the weekend (4/2-3) two of the three eggs hatched and we are waiting for the last one. My friend Lisa Grossman writes from Wired Science:
“Eagles can’t control their own body temperature until they are 10 to 14 days old, so the parents will stick close to the babies for the next few weeks. On warm days, you may see the eaglets exploring the nest, but on cold or rainy days they will probably take shelter under their parents.”
So we get to watch eagles grow. This makes sitting at my desk in a windowless room all day a little more bearable.
