Wednesday PM

Couple of observations:

You've probably noticed all three eaglets working their wings in the wind the past few days, although we think it will be another month before they're ready to fly. let's hope they don't get to "cocky" and find themselves blown out of the nest!

Also, the adults are now leaving the eaglets alone for parts of the day. There has been constant supervision until the past day or so, and that has been very importnant due to the coller temps and rain we've been having.


New thread. Cold morning.

Fresh weekend thread.

Was just watching some nest enhancements being done, with the help of the oldest eaglet. Good to see tht most of their feathers have come in, there's talk of more rain next week.

New thread. I'm told that some of the access issues for those that have not been able to see the cam have been resolved, which is good news.

It is amazing watching the diligence of our adult eagles in protecting their youngsters from the rain. The youngest eaglet is still especially vulnerable as it has the fewest feathers grown in to help protect it from the rain.
Wow, lots of rain. No internet at my house.

Looks like rain today. The past week the eaglets have really started to fill in their feathers, and they have provided us with some precarious moments as they have perched at the edge of the nest. Remember they can't fly for some time yet...

Had some excitement last night at home. We had a house fire. Thanks to the Philomont and Middleburg Vol. Fire Departments, our 200 year old house was saved, with only some moderate damage. If we can get the water back on we can stay at the house.

My blogging will be sparce for a few days because of this.

Tuesday PM

There have been some great moments on the live feed today as the adult's feeding positions have given us some great closeups of the three youngsters. The bounty of food is really making a difference in their growth, which is rapid.


Fresh thread, part 2 (Blogger is not helping me today version).

We continue to look into why some folks are having access problems.

Here's a great "family" shot from Randy Robinson:

Also, We've gotten messages from folks on difficulties some are having with access to the live feed and the core eaglecam site. We are investigating.
