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 founda website where you can watch live a pair in West Virginia. Yesterday I noticed that theres an egg which the pair of adults take turns keeping warm. Today I find the poor adult surrounded by a great deal of snowone place in West Virginia has already received over thirty inches of snow, with hours more expected. In case youre interested in watching and listening (sound effects, too!), heres the website. It will take about two months for the eggs to hatch.
