On another note
On TV last week my brother and I watched a fine show on bald eagles that included shots of their nests as they brooded eggs and then fed and protected the eaglets until they had matured and could fly on their own. I went looking and found a website where you can watch live a pair in West Virginia. Yesterday I noticed that there’s an egg which the pair of adults take turns keeping warm. Today I find the poor adult surrounded by a great deal of snow–one place in West Virginia has already received over thirty inches of snow, with hours more expected. In case you’re interested in watching and listening (sound effects, too!), here’s the website. It will take about two months for the eggs to hatch.
