Last year, more than 200,000 people from about 180 countries watched eagle parents hatch three eggs, brave bad weather, raise their chicks and teach them to fly in Decorah, Iowa.
And now, the eagles are back. The mother is about to lay her eggs any day now, andyou can view it!
The Raptor Resource Project runs 12 webcams, including the Decorah eagle cam. The organization, established in 1988, takes care of more than 40 raptor nests and nest sites. The project has used birdcams since 1998, when it launched the web’s first, a peregrine falcon cam known as Mae’s Internest in Oak Park Heights, Minnesota. The project also has birdcams of falcons, ospreys, hawks and owls.
“By giving ordinary people intimate access to the lives of wild animals, our work deepens the connection between people and the natural world,” the Raptor Resource Project website reads.
I watch a few nests. I love them!
