Some pictures from the Eagle cam

It's hard not to just sit and watch the wonderful interaction between mom, dad and the 3 babies. Here are some pictures for those of you who don't have the time to watch. Every once in awhile they do some close up shots and I happened to catch them this morning. One of my followers was nice enough to send me a link to the story about the guy who set up this camera. Here's the link to the cam for those of you who missed that post.  
Click on the images for a closer view.

I have been watching the Eagle Cam in Norfolk VA, www.wvec.com, the Eagle Cam is listed in the dark blue tabs.

I think there is something about the eyes being spaced differently between the male-female birds....but don't quote me :)

O Deanna, this is sooo beautiful!
(We don't have eagles (bold or other) here in Holland)
Love your grass weavings, I tried that once myself with the leaves of irises (like weaving some sort of container in the "stone age" ;-)

I have a nest in my garden and I am always so fascinated to see the parent come back with all kinds of things in its beak...I also feel very proud that they would want to build a nest in my garden!! It's like a badge of honour!

Oh, yes, Deanna, I spend a lot of time watching the eagle cams. And wow Karen has a nest in her garden - amazing. I'm wondering how on earth you managed to download actual pictures.

Eagles are such magnificent birds. When we lived in SE Alaska they were an every day sighting. I remember how strange to me it was when we moved to Washington (I was ten) to not see them everyday.

Deanna these picture are so wonderful, I wish I could see these eagles with my own eyes, exciting to see you have woven with cloth and leaves.

The larger eagles who looks like she is wearing eye shadow around her eyes is the female.
