Good day everyone,

Our friends at Alcoa Davenport in Iowa introduced a second EagleCam for their "across the treetop peeks" of the Bald Eagle nest to compliment their "Nest View" close-up Cam. The two Eagles, Liberty and Justice, built the nest in 2009 and have maintained it since, incubating their eggs and fledging their 'kids' every year since (a total of 8 Eaglets to date!)

Both cameras can be accessed at the same time. But by clicking on the center of a screen, you may access a 'full screen' camera view one at a time. Liberty and Justice will be laying the eggs in a few weeks and, because of the generosity of Alcoa, we will be able to monitor the goings-on within the nest on a 24hr/7day/365dpy basis. This is truly a wonderful learning experience for children of all ages!

Enjoy this fascinating and devoted family!

Good afternoon ornithologist fans:

I must share our Bald Eagle thread with another astonishing and sweet family I have been watching for weeks: The Laysan Albatross.
Located in Kauai Hawaii, Cornell Labs has an Albatross Cam on the parents and a newly hatched chick. The baby, hatched on January 27th is named Kaloakulua; Mom is Kaluahine; Dad is Kaluakane.

The parents each take turns caring for the chick. Other Albatross are also nesting in the area and some non-breeding neighbors will stop by at times to visit the family. Local roosters, hens and other birds also frequent the nesting sites and birds of many kinds can be heard singing in the background of this lovely place. I hope you enjoy these extraordinary and beautiful seabirds.

G'evening ,

Albatross update:
As the chick, Kaloakulua, continues to grow and thrive, his parents leave the nest - sometimes singly and sometimes both are gone simultaneously - for days at a time in order to return to the sea. It will take both parents to provide enough nourishment to support the chick's growth. It is amazing how instinct guides such a youngster; the chick is preening itself, conducts 'nestoration' activities, and has left the nest bowl on occasion as it wanders near by. Other Albatross families nest nearby.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful and precious family.

Good afternoon,

We have egg #1, which was laid late last evening! Here is the beginning of another exciting story starring our Bald Eagle friends, Liberty and Justice, on the proper techniques employed in raising and caring for baby eaglets from (birth) through college. Spring has finally arrived, even if Iowa has more snowfall. Please enjoy them!
