I visited a bird atrium in South Africa once and was in the owl section. There was this owl no further than five feet away from me sitting on the ground. His body was pointed in the opposite direction, but he kept his eyes looking at me.Just watched the mother do an excorcist head spin. Great site!
I'm hooked too! This is wonderful....I just hope we don't witness another bird coming and stealing the babies! That would be an awful site! Hope mom is a good protector.I am SOOO HOOKED!! I have a 4 hour meeting tomorrow and guess what's going to be on my screen the whole time!! Thanks sooo much for th link.

Glad you like it.I'm hooked too! This is wonderful....I just hope we don't witness another bird coming and stealing the babies! That would be an awful site! Hope mom is a good protector.
Seems lately as they get bigger, there's now less of the sibling conflicts (at least when I've looked). The bigger ones are flapping their non-feathered wings more. Mama seems to be interested in keeping the place clean.It's amazing to see how they act/react to the weather and the elements. I rooting for the little one. The large babies seem to pick on him/her but she's got a little spunk. Mom/dad seem to be doing okay with feeding although I do notice the little one gets fed last.
I'm looking forward to the day they leave the nest, if my timing is right to catch it. :hopefully: Your link shows discussion on the right...neat.I am so fascinated with this site; the Hornby cam has a couple of eggs that are going to hatch very soon. I've learned alot about eagles in the last two days.
I've been watching all day - I had to force myself to actually step away & get anything done today.
At least one of them has fledged! Saw it return to the nest to claim the food one of the parents brought back. This has been really cool to watch, bummer I missed the initial leaving of the nest.I can't believe how big the eaglets are getting. You can hardly tell them apart now. I've also be checking out the other nests. The Hornsby nest lost one of the babies a couple of weeks ago so there is only one left in that nest. The Delta nest is SMALL but it's holding 2 babies right now. They were born a couple of days apart and are getting big fast.
This is a truly amazing experience to watch these birds grow.
