Is that the remains of a dead bird in the nest?

Very cool. I have been watching another one in Iowa recently that now has three eggs in it, the latest having been laid last sunday. You can see the eggs being laid etc in the video archives and also track one of the eagles that was born in the nest a couple of years ago.

Definately looks like a dead bird in the nest. Probably a coot.

You can see the eaglet now on the Berry College cam. Hurry!

Do we know if the proud parent is male or female?

99.99999 percent sure the one on the nest right now is the female (on the Berry College cam). There are ways to tell by looking if you can compare he two, but usually if there is an eaglet in the nest it's the female that remains. If it's just eggs they will take turn sitting on them.

Nice. Although when you said live eagle cam I was expecting something like this pelican cam.

There was quite a bit of activity this morning. They dined on a fish then she rearranged the nest a little, moved the other egg around, and now shes back on top the egg and the baby.

The fish is completely gone now but the other remains are definitely a coot, I can tell by it's foot.

Both adults are in the nest now. They are feeding the eaglet as I type.

The eaglet on the Berry College cam is noticeably larger, and stronger, than it was just a few days ago. It's been eating a lot of fish this week. It's even been taking little bites off of the fish by itself when it's close enough to it.

The one on the Decorah cam has been sitting on those three eggs all week and has barely moved. In that time I have never seen the other one visit the nest at all, but I did see the one fly off and leave the eggs unattended for about 15 minutes once.

Lift it up by the tail and take a look.

There is an adult eagle sitting in the nest, as if on eggs. No sign of the eaglet. Anyone know what has happened to them?

There was an eaglet there when I just looked.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

The eaglet (B3) is there. If you can't see it, one of the eagles is probably sitting on it to keep it warm. It has been moving from the hole in the nest where it spends most of it time. It's able to move around the nest a little, hopefully it won't fall out.

B3 is alone in the nest right now. I always get nervous when it's left alone!

Now would be a good time because they are both in the nest at the moment!

Yes, you had something to say to them, did you? Get the kiddo's real name while you're at it, would you please? Smile
