    Re: Eaglecam

    Looks like you've checked the Eagle Cam more than I have, thanks for the updates!
    From what I've seen in the past, you're right - it shouldn't be too long before the young eagles start taking short flights to the branches near the nest. As this camera wasn't used that much last year (the adult eagles nested in a nearby tree then, according to the info here they apparently do that every once in a while), I hope it can still pan out to those. I haven't seen it do that yet, but I may have missed it.

    The chicks haven't taken long to grow to fledglings.
    They only hatched a few months ago.
    Time certainly gets away....

    What if we could count the stars... , what number would you stop at...?"

    I don't know if you're taking a look at the Alcoa eagle cam, but yesterday that young eagle was practicing flight by jumping around while flapping it's wings.
    Also, a few minutes ago a small bird (looked like a wren or something similar) landed in the nest. The small bird was there for a couple of minutes and then left. The young eagle then looked towards the camera as if to say "What?"

    If you have a problem with motion sickness, avoid the Alcoa tree-top cam right now. It must be pretty windy there at this time, and that camera is on a different (and apparently less sturdy) tree.
    The Decorah cam was down for a while earlier, but it is back up now.

    If you notice that D18, D19, and D20 are shaking their heads a lot, it's because they have a bad case of lice. Earlier today the camera operator focused in close, and you could see them crawling with white lice. The eaglets are two weeks overdue for their first flight. =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    The long, harsh winter is probably why the eaglets haven't started fledgling yet.
    After seeing the Alcoa eaglet jumping around a few days ago I'd guess it won't be too much longer before these three begin also, though. That's pretty fun to watch. Stay tuned.

    Re: Eaglecam

    One of the young Decorah eagles was jumping around and flapping its wings for short flights across the nest this afternoon. One of the short flights had it land right next to the camera. Heh, talk about "eagle eye".
    Once they start jumping around in the nest like this it won't be long before the young eagles start flying to nearby branches, and then off on their own.

    Great News!

    D18 and D19 have both fledged today within a few hours! And gracefully, too!
    Here are the YouTube links:

    D18


    D19


    D20 is still at home.

    I can't help it. I just can't stop watching the birdies. =^..^=

    That's normal for a cat, isn't it?

    D20 left today. No recording posted yet. I'm sure somebody is digging through today's footage. =^..^=

    Here it is:
