    Re: Eaglecam

    Even Rudy, the young eagle from the Alcoa site has taken off, so all the sites currently show empty nests.
    I'm a little disappointed with the Decorah site, back in the day that camera could pan to the right and show where the young eagles would normally perch when they first fledged. There's actually a pretty large branch over there.

    Looks like two of the young eagles at the Decorah site just went through some tough times, one down with a broken wing and another down with starvation issues. It sounds like the third one is doing OK, though.
    Luckily, the two having problems were caught by a place that takes care of injured raptors, and while the one with the broken wing is going to be there for a while, after eating three entire quails the other one was fitted with a transmitter and let go.

    Re: Eaglecam

    I was pleased that D19 and D20 are OK. The statistics aren't good though. Only 1 in 5 eaglets reaches adulthood. =^..^=

    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.

    Re: Eaglecam

    I have to give kudos to the guy who safely caught the young eagles.
    I don't know if you've ever handled anything like this, but years ago I had to help my mom free a red tailed hawk from some electric fencing it had gotten tangled up in (they are birds, so sometimes they can be bird brains). I have roughly a six foot wingspan, but holding the hawk's wings fully extended they went past my hands by around six inches per side. Also, while the hawk was groggy from getting zapped by the fence a few times, it still had the presences (sp?) of mind to reach out with its talons and rip a chunk out of one of mom's boots.
    So while a zoned out hawk can be somewhat difficult to handle, young eagles that have achieved flight are larger than a hawk (most likely quite a bit larger), so it couldn't have been easy to collect those two.

    with fresh road kill in the middle of the road. There was about 30 or so Kitehawks feeding off the dead kangaroo carcass. I think that was the clearest closest view of a Kitehawks rectum I ever saw. He clipped the top of the passenger side windscreen. He lived to tell the tale. I saw him flying away. I bet he told all his hawk mates "those humans are literally a pain-in-the-@ss."
    Kitehawks are a large bird. Thier wingspan covers across the windscreen of a vehicle.

    hey neo, wouldn't that be wedgie's?

    Re: Eaglecam

    A recorded video from around nine hours ago from right now:
    Decorah Eagles, Decorah Eagles raptorresource on USTREAM. Birds
    Looks like they've put a new layer on the nest recently, it looks like there's still some snow from the last storm on the upper left hand side of it.
    (Then again, I just got the last of the pack ice from that storm off my driveway today, too.)

    Crap, that didn't go well:

    It is still pretty early in the season though.

    Re: Eaglecam

    The Decorah Eagles are staying close, rarely leaving the nest. I expect an egg very soon.
