She has one job... and she's doing it.

Tonight's check-in was interesting

She's on the nest as usual, and suddenly positions herself differently and lets out a few loud screeches. A similar screech is heard in the distance. She then answers it.

It took him about a minute to arrive. They are near-identical, but he's a little larger. They exchange places on the eggs.

Both male and female parent birbs have a procedure, with the eggs. They don't just plop right down on them. They examine the eggs, nudge them around a little. They do a little housekeeping of the interior sitting zone.

Then they "nestle in" with the eggs. It's a whole big thing, every time. They get into position, and then they reach for the far side of the nest with the beak, and really pull their body into place. Then they do a cute rocking back n forth for about 5-10 seconds, to get the eggs into a solid position under their belly area.

There are about 10 other decent eagle cams out there, but this is actually the best one, with both regular and IR in high def (even with the smudge). And the best birbs. These are really good looking birbs.

Apparently one of 'em got a chipmunk.

Actually this birb is quite good too, and HD, but not as pretty as the Hanover birbs, and the sound is ugly (at least as I write this)

Iowa is more plain(s) folks, so not a pretty is expected.

Every time I look at them, I'm so impressed by that nest. I've never seen an eagle collecting sticks and grass. I've seen a robin do it. To build such a sturdy nest with the interlocked sticks just really blows me a way. They are structural engineers.

I'm jealous. I'd really like to see both birbs at the same time, but every time I tune in, it's just one or the other on the nest. Guess I need to check in more often.

I check in a lot. I've seen the "nestling" a few times, because every 10 minutes the sitting birb will change position and also move the eggs a little.

According to the Facebook page for the birbs, which I only just now have found, they had a raccoon attack last night! Apparently mama gave him the smackdown and the eggs are fine.

Both cams seem offline right now...

damn coons. We have one in our neighborhood. He's been gnawing on the shingles at the corner of my next door neighbor's roof. I put a dart in his side Monday night with my blow gun, but he was undeterred. He stepped away, pulled out the dart, and ambled back. Then on Weds night, he was climbing the gutter of the house across the street, walking across the roof, and down the other gutter. Did it like 3 times. Like he was on the weed. zany
