Where The Stars And Stripes, And The Eagles Fly!
Despite economic situations, you have to love 2011. Technology has allowed us to do so many things we wouldn't even imagine doing 20, 10, even 5 years ago. Whether it's the iphone, video games, robots, computers, all of these are allowing us to not only enhance our lifestyle, but to go places a normal person will never see.
I've been watching streaming videos the past couple years. It's actually really neat to see a person, or animal behind the scenes. I've seen penguins being streamed online. A man living with lions in Florida, the sea lion aquarium from San Diego, and if you have ever lived in a big city, they have cameras placed so you can see what the weather is like.
In this case, it's a little more special. In Decorah, Iowa a man caught a few eagles building a nest. He got the idea of puting a camera by the nest to use for streaming. It's amazing how these Eagles act when no humans or predators are around. Always looking around and being cautious to protect their young.
80 feet up in the air in a cottonwood tree on a private property these Eagles made a nest that is 6ft wide and weighs around 1,000 lbs. Two eagles have been together since 2007 where they successfully hatched 2 eaglets in 2008, 3 in 2009, and 3 more last year. From what I can tell by the stream I see 3 eaglets which are known as baby eagles. They hatched earlier this month.
