The wonderful crew at the Norfolk eaglets new home have a web cam link up and running and it can be viewed on the original web cam link from WVEC (http://www.wvec.com/marketplace/microsite-content/eagle-cam.html)

There's a note below the feed "Please note, the video feed from Waynesboro was established on short notice due to the sudden death of the adult eagle. Steps are being taken to improve the quality of the video stream, but we hope our devoted Eagle Cam fans will appreciate the hard work WCV has done to bring us this video feed so quickly."

The kids in the Decorah nest look like they're doing fine. Looks like they've passed out after eating.:lol:

Lets hope no more severe weather hits. Evidently several nests around the country have not fared well with the storms.

Thanks Sassafras for putting up the link. Still sad we won't be seeing Mom and Dad dropping in to care for the babes.

Somebody posted this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cU5mcxF2pc&feature=youtu.be) of when dad came back to the nest for the first time after the eaglets left. He apparently stayed for about 20 minutes altogether and left a fish. A few hours later he came back for just a couple of minutes and took the fish with him.

From an eyewitness to the accident at the airport when "Mom" was struck:

The female was on the runway and rose up just before the accident - about 10 to 20 ft off the ground. She was hit by the landing gear

Just saw this on the USAirways Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/USAirways)

We’d like to update everyone on the mother eagle & her eaglets. On 4/26, US Airways Express 4091, operated by Air Wisconsin, struck an eagle while landing in ORF. The crew was unable to avoid the eagle without risking the safety of the passengers & crew onboard. Rest assured the eaglets will be taken care of; Air Wisconsin is making a donation for their ongoing support & care.

As sad as the death of the mother eagle made me, the life goes on.

Here's another eagle camera: Decorah Eagles (http://www.ustream.tv/decoraheagles) 24/7 (infrared light at night)

Mom/daddy has left to get some breakfast, I think. The blurry thing on the camera might be a projectile poop... :lol: It happened so fast I'm not really sure, but a few minutes before another eaglet did it on the other side of the nest, so that might be it.

And from other birds:

Great hummingbird nest (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/ourhummingbirdnest-com). It's offline right now, but check later. It has nice, clear picture and the camera is really close (closer than in that movie that plays when the cam is offline)

Wren nest (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/wren-nest). All babies have hatched.

Another peregrine falcon cam: http://rfalconcam.com/rfc-main/cameras.php
These are in Rochester, NY, and the parents are Beauty and Archer. They have 3 eggs this year. The Rochester nest's original occupant was Mariah, who, with two mates between 1995 and 2008, raised 43 chicks. Mariah has no mate now, but she certainly deserves a restful retirement after such a showing as a supermom.

The quality of the picture of the Wildlife Center cam improved a lot yesterday. Picture shows b&w at night or when it is cloudy.

The kids are exercising their wings a lot, hopping and starting to walk sideways out the branches.

Dad has been seen regularly at the Garden.
