The Eagles Have Landed!

I love eagles!  I spend a majority of January watching eagles on the Iowa River near IRP.  I was thrilled when I learned about this awesome camera in Decorah!  The camera captures the daily life of 2 eagles, a mother and father and their 3 eggs that were laid on February 23.  The babies should hatch around April 1st.  I have been streaming the video in the library all dayand the response has been crazy!  The kids (and teachers) are mesmerized!


  1. Kelly,
    We've been enthralled by the Eagles too. Our 2nd graders are following an inquiry research path to learn more about these amazing birds. I'll email you their questions so far and will be posting more about this project to the soon-to-be-created Twain Library blog. Thanks for being a blogging leader on our TL team!

  2. What a great idea to stream the video so everyone can see it! I am a huge fan of webcams and I plan add this to my list of favorites.
