The Eagles Have Nested

Okay, this is the coolest thing.

Doug and Sheila Carrick, residents of Hornby Island on Canada’s west coast, have set up a web cam above the nest of a pair of bald eagles who reside on their property.

This year the eagles have produced two eggs, and the eggs are set to hatch any day. Thanks to the Carricks, we get to have a bird’s eye view.

Click here to visit the Hornby Island Eagle Cam and witness the birth of two baby bald eagles.

For more information about Doug and Sheila and the eagles, visit their website, The Eagles of Hornby Island.

Bird watching at its best!

Happy Earth Day!

Until next time,

So cool! When are the babies due?

Neat! I can't wait to show this to my girls. :)

Delle and Gillian, thanks for joining the fun!

Still no babies as of this (Monday) morning but the diehard eagle watchers are reporting pips on one or both eggs and predicting there could be a hatch tomorrow!
