ON CALLMESUNSHINE.COM: Decorah Eagles Nest Cam – Awww . . . The Babies are Soooo Cute :)

I posted this on CallMeSunshine.com in early February when these Eagles first laid 3 eggs. It’s a live cam showing the entire process of Eagles mating and raising babies. An amazing look at nature. Enjoy something we don’t usually get to be part of!!

From what I’ve been told, these young parents have had 2-3 successful sets of babies. It is amazing to watch this male and female eagle take care of their young now that the eggs have hatched. When you realize what they go through to raise their young, it makes our lives seem so much simpler. God Bless these Eagles!
