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!
Swan

Instinct: So powerful a force that it commands the yearning for the sea to come to the surface even at this young age; with baby down still present, the young albatross is mesmerized by the ocean spread before her, for it is her future...her home.

Our VI Ornithologists:

Meet the Osprey, Rachael and Steve, of Hog Island, ME. They have three of the cutest chicks tucked away in the nest. I couldn't resist posting them for you. Our albatross, KK, will be flying to the ocean soon; our eagle, Rudy, is 'branching' out and almost ready to fledge. College awaits!

An update:

KK, the albatross chick we have been following, has been fitted with her ID bands and a Geolocater, which will record her travels until she returns to the island of Kauai in 3 to 4 years from now. She will be leaving the island any day now to go to her home, the Pacific Ocean. Except for a small amount of fuzz on her head, she has grown into a beautiful young bird, complete with her 7 foot wingspan to carry her over the vast Pacific.

Farewell, our friend; we will miss you...
