Birb

Prompted by Carruthers' interest in US birds of prey: the Hanover, PA bald eagles nest HD cam. It has IR so the nest is visible at night.

http://www.pgc.pa.gov/Wildlife/Wildl...leCamera2.aspx

There are two eggs there, and the birds switch off maintenance/warming duty. Right now it's raining, and the tending bird has its wings out, keeping a large area of the nest dry.

Camera one, non-IR, so not visible at night, but with sound:

I went out to get my mail about 10 wearing just shoes. That rain is cold. Cover them eggs baby.

Thanks for that link, UT.

No leaves on the trees, 40F/4C and first egg on Feb 20th!
Hard work for the parents by the looks of it.

I hope that the Peregrine Falcons will nest on the county council tower block in Aylesbury later this year.
We don't have too many cliff faces hereabouts, so the local concrete monstrosity seems to be an acceptable substitute for a Peregrine des res.
When the webcam is up and running I'll post it here.

That would have been cool to watch yesterday. They seem to have survived the storm ok this morning.

Sent that link to someone in Texas, he told me to go stand under the tree and wave. I think he wants me to get bird pooped on.

I have become addicted to checking in on the Hanover eagles nest feed.

I will report in if they have a successful hatching and there are ig-lets to see.

I've more or less given up hope of returning to the USA so I'll just have to be satisfied with spotting UK birds of prey.
This morning I walked down to the post office and within the first hundred yards was treated to the sight of three Red Kites and two Buzzards (US = Hawks).
The Kites are a common sight now and the Buzzards, although far more numerous, are lazy flyers and tend to rely on thermal activity.
I doubt if there was much ground heating up this morning, so I suppose they just had to make the effort to fly or else go hungry.

Pete and I saw three red tail hawks while skiing at Song Mtn last weekend. Pretty dramatic with the bright blue sky. We saw a flock of snow geese as well.
