This live feed is kind of cool. Two eagles made this nest in 2007 and have returned to have babies every year. The nest is eighty feet up in a cottonwood tree in Iowa. The proud parents have hatched two with a third due to hatch any time.
The half eaten prairie dog in the nest is cool too...lol.
The third eaglet hatched. The poor eagles have their "hands" full. Mom and dad were both in the nest feeding them. The oldest baby has an attitude..lol. He picks on his siblings and won't hesitate to peck at mom if she pisses him off.
The feed seem to be working fine now.

This is the safe way to observe. Some clown in the west suburbs advertised about hawks nesting in a tree in his yard. So naturally somebody decides to 'get a closer look'.
15 stitches to the forhead later, you can be sure the hawks are wondering what the heck ya gotta do for some privacy.
The guy actually thought he could just grab a ladder and climb up into an adjacent tree. "I guess they are a little territorial" said the man after falling off mid-way up the ladder when the hawk gave him a stern warning to stay away.
