When the mommy eagle has set there as long as she wants she calls for her mate to replace her and if he doesn't come right away she goes looking for him. He then comes in and sits until her time out is over.
Katelyn emailed a link to her teacher and was anxious to talk to her teacher Monday to see if she saw the eagles, she was going to write about the eagles in school this week. Katelyn loves animals and I wouldn't be surprised if she would choose to be a vet someday.
The Raptor Resource Project is sponsoring a live feed of a nest in northeast Iowa where three eggs were laid in February. The first eagle started to emerge on Friday. The second hatched early Sunday morning and the third is expected anytime.
The Raptor Resource Project set up two cameras perched 80 feet high in a cottonwood tree where the mother eagle has her nest. The group says at such high resolution, viewers should be able to see cracks forming in the eggs before they hatch.
If you are interested in the live feed here is the link.
