Watching Bald Eagles

The CBC has a link to a nest of bald eagles.  Two fledglings have hatched and one more is expected to hatch in the next two days.  There is  live web streaming, which will probably continue into July when the fledglings will be able to hop to different branches and are almost ready to leave the nest. You can see the birds being fed and the parents sitting on the nest.  It is an excellent view of nature up close.

Last year at Riverwood Conservancy we were watching a Cooper hawk's nest.  I am sure they are back this year. Bird watching hikes start April 6, 8 am  and Apr. 13, 2:30.  Visit  the web site for more info.
