    A friend sent us the link earlier in the week - amazing!!! My son is engrossed with raptors and wants to be falconer someday so we keep checking to see if the eggs hatch. :D

    I've been watching for the last couple of weeks. They average around 7 thousand viewers a night. But because the eggs are ready to hatch, there were around 16 to 17 thousand Tuesday night and 25 thousand on Wednsday night. The man who put the camera up sometimes zooms in on the eagle in the nest. Their white head feathers are so fine, it looks like fur.
    It's an awesome site/sight, hee hee.

    Dang, I missed seeing the eggs. I have been watching her build up her nest more which leads me to believe she's preparing to lay an egg soon!

    Just rolled the eggs again --- I think a couple looked like they had little cracks in them? I could be wrong and it could just be dirt or something.

    Close up on her --- such beautiful feathers!

    ETA: Uh oh --- she looked right at the camera suddenly - twice. Hope she doesn't get spooked.

    (I want this job! To sit somewhere and control these cameras via remote... :D)
