Is the nest on a farm or something?  I keep seeing an animal(s) walking by.  Looks like it could be a horse or   Huh  Maybe it's a dog.  Hard to tell with the distance.






What is the area around the nest like?
The nest is in a cottonwood tree on private property near the Decorah Fish Hatchery (operated by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources), on the banks of the babbling waters of Trout Run in extreme northeast Iowa. The nest can be seen from the hatchery, but visitors to the hatchery should keep their distance from the nest tree, both to respect the private property where the tree is located and to avoid disturbing the eagles.
Here is a ground-level video of the surroundings, taken in March 2010: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDzAh7trL2A

Who does the panning, tilting, and zooming, and when does that happen?
Bob Anderson, Executive Director of RRP, switches to the PTZ cam when time and weather permit, and especially when there appears to be interesting activity in the nest. He will be especially attentive when hatching begins.

She swapped places of them ( rolled them over maybe ? )and she fluffed up the nest around them a little .. I was watching for awhile it only took her a minute or 2 .. it will be hard to catch if you're not lucky to be watching at that minute .. I can't wait to see the hatchlings  Smiley

The nest exchange!  Cheesy

This is from last year.  Looks to be the same nest.


<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91EeynthtCk" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91EeynthtCk</a>

How big is the nest?
5-6 feet across, about the same deep; it weighs about 1 tons.

very kewl !! ... I'm going to a friends place this weekend and there are a few eagle nests on top of power line supports close by .. they are friggin HUGE .. I'll get some pictures if it's clear .. it's not the same as seeing them in person but maybe seeing them on top of those high steel things can show some little bit of how big they are ... last time I was there I think there were 3 or 4 .. they stay put unless the weather takes them out I think

LOL .. that was funny  Cheesy

I saw them feeding this morning.  The older/stronger one seems like a bully, pecking on the other one and taking all the food.  Mom make no attempt to go out of her way to feed the other one  Cry

I was reading that is common among babies, especially if the first hatched is a female.  Fratricide is fairly common.  Cry  Don't know if I'll be able to continue to watch if that happens.
