Great pictures, Dizzymom! Look at the little egg tooth shining there  :eclove

Blackster, thanks for the terrific videos - talk about fresh out of the shell (the first one).

I see that the cam is offline now, at Ustream ... an alternate is posted but I can;t get that one either, at the moment   http://birdcam.xcelenergy.com/eagle.html

I did not get a chance to video the feeding as the cam went down.  Hopefully it is running in the near future.  Thanks for your kind words.

Thanks Blackster for saying there was a feeding.  Thought there should have been.

I was wondering how Ustream was managing the numbers that have been watching this cam. 46,250 last night 11pm pacific time. And 150,000 today, I think.

Have there been many pauses, freezes, stops and down?

emc, I don't know about the feeding that Blackster mentioned, but there was one about half an hour ago - the little one got a couple of bites of rabbit.

The cam stream has been very steady, except for a while earlier today when the whole thing went down for (I am not sure how long - maybe an hour?)

Thanks Blackster, your patience paid off.  :ecsmile. The parent finally moved to the side and we could see the chick receive morsels. :eclove

I was fortunate to watch the first feeding (live) of the cute newly-hatched chick.  Getting beak training along with some rabbit.  Those necks sure are wobbly at first!  Wonderful cam and closeups there!   :ecsmile

Video:  Ready for my Close-up

First hatch:  4/2

What is the prey in the nest?   What did Mom feed her baby?  Did Dad bring a fish?

The feeding shown in post #20 has some views of the furry prey.  It is what was fed at that feeding.

Beans, you can see the two rabbit feet close to where the hatched chick and eggs are in the nest.  Mom D. just reached over and pulled off pieces to give the little one its first and subsequent feedings.  She is teaching it to come to her beak.  It still needs to learn that is a good thing to do!   :eclove

Mom's feeding chick #1 while chick #2 is learning to stand upright.



Egg #3 looks mighty cracked up to me, they are saying hatch is expected in the next couple of days. Remember, egg #3 was layed 8 days after egg #1, so I'm a bit confused about the timing.

This is a link to article on Decorah Eagle Cam. It's really been generating lots of watchers around the world and apparently the carrier crashed for over 2 hours on Saturday due to overload.
I heard on KFI radio news in Los Angeles, just after midnight, that it has surpassed watching puppies on the net.
