The Eagle Cams are up!

The Florida Eagles have hatched 1 chick and there is another egg that hasn't hatched yet. Here's the link and a picture:

The Berry College Eagles laid their 1st egg yesterday so it will be a while before it hatches.

"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

I love the cams.

Here is a picture of the chick in the first picture today at about 7 weeks of age. Since the other egg never hatched, this guy got all the food and is huge!

Aw that's a shame the other egg never hatched. I don't really know much about birds. My dad kept some small birds when I was a kid and I've had a few budgies myself but that's about it! The eagle is one of my favorite birds particularly the harpy eagle it looks really cool then theres the bone eating vulture/eagle known as the lammergeier also pretty cool tho im not so keen on the red eyes! I also like most small birds.

While on a vacation in Alaska, a big brown bird got close enough for me to take it's picture. I was so excited to be that close to a bird, but told the Zipline guide I was disappointed it wasn't an Eagle. Oh, but it WAS, she told me! Young Bald Eagles are all brown without a white hood during the first 3-5 years or so when they are learning to fly etc., the brown feathers help camouflage them from predators.

I'll see if I can find it. It was a number of years ago and we were transitioning from photos on CD to online and phone shots. I will have to look for it. First stop, an ancient Photobucket account. What was that password again? LOL Hilarious!
