    Eagles Nest Webcam

    Hi all

    Came across this link whilst filling in some time @ work whilst on nightshift.

    It's a live web cam stream (free) of an eagles nest (somewhere in the states I think) someone placed a webcam above the nest before the eaglets hatched, the eaglets are now growing but have not yet started to leave the nest.

    It's amazing to just sit and watch these three eaglets rummage around the nest. Occasionally you will observe a parent eagle return to feed the young. The cam also has night vision. The eaglets don't appear to be very active, but for some reason it is just mesmerising to watch!

    Theres usually upto 30,000 persons veiwing the stream, well worth a look

    Cheers

    Matt

    I was amazed by it, I’d be interested to know if there are any similar webcams around.

    I just had a look @ the time in Decorah, its 15 hours behind us (Tassie Time), so it won’t be day light there until around 2100 hours tonight (Tassie Time). Should be good viewing when the eaglets first wake
