SNOW STORMS AT DECORAH, IOWA BALD EAGLE NEST

Winter returns intermittently in Decorah, Iowa.  Look closely at these screen shots from the web cam.  Dad Eagle was keeping watch, and you may see white streaks across the background…  blowing snow.

When it snows out on the limbs, ofcourse it piles up on the nest also.Mom  dozing, keeping eggs warm, & shaking snow off now and then. See how it piles around her on the nest.

Two eggs so far. Mom takes night shift on the nest & turns them, snowstorm or not.

The webcam is live, and volunteers pan it to interesting views.  Various videos of the eagles and last year’s eaglets are also available.  Here’s the link:  http://www.ustream.tv/decoraheagles    Have fun!
