    They seem to be moving around a lot more. So maybe one of them had just moved out of camera shot for a while.

    Yes, I finally saw the thrid baby. They said the nest is 6ft across
    and they have two different setting for the camera viewing. I guess one
    was just out of view for awhile. I got nervous because I couldn't get logged
    on fast enough to see if something had happened when I was logged off.

    They sure are getting bigger by the day. I watched momma serve up
    lunch this afternoon.

    Oh yes, I still do. Notice the wing span on these guys. I usually
    check in on them 1 or 2 times per day. I just noticed the tree is finally
    sprouting leaves, I thought it may have been a dead tree.

    They are a few days pass a month old now, wonder when they learn
    to fly?

    I still check in at least once a day (usually more often). I did have them up and running all day, along with my Peregrine Falcons, but we've been told not to "hog" the internet.

    I also wonder when their heads will turn white. This is such a fun experience....watching them and learning about Bald Eagles.

    Yup! I live about 7 miles from the area. We have been watching them throughout the years.

    This area has a lot of eagles year round. It is ideal with the Upper Iowa running through the area with creeks stocked with trout along with lots of road kill with state highways 52 & 9. There are still plenty of big trees like that cotton wood the eagles are nesting in.

    The Mississippi River is only an hours drive from here where there are plenty of eagles.

    I have noticed it takes a good three years before their heads & tails turn white.

    I can only make out 2 right now, and the one in the front seems like he's not feeling well - he's almost panting and a moment ago he sneezed!! I hope he's ok...

    It was 90 degrees F., here yesterday very warm for this time of year. The babies always pant when it gets hot out. The juices in whatever the parent eagles find & bring to the nest to feed them keep them hydrated. The babies will even spread their wings to try to stay cool. It is suppose to cool off some today with showers in the forecast. This morning two of the babies are sleeping & I see one of them is awake taking in the morning sun.

    No Idea, but maybe Bonny knows. She lives in the area. They will be
    7 weeks old this Friday. They were sleeping just now, but someone started
    up a lawn mower & woke one of them up.

    I just googled when they fledge and it said 10 - 12 weeks of age. So we've got about another 4 or 5 weeks to go.

    Anyone else log in to the chat area? I do occasionally but mostly just
    view the birds & nest area. Yesterday after log in the mod of the sight gave some info on the eaglets.

    Each one is approx 6 to 7 lbs. 2-3 ft high. Wingspan is 4-5 ft wide.

    This kinds of gives you a true idea of their real size relative to the way they
    appear on the screen. They are growing up fast.

    Hard to believe these are the same little birds we watched through
    the snow & cold winds of last Winter/Spring. Any day now I expect them
    to fly off somewhere.
