Watch Bald Eagle eggs hatch (live stream). The Raptor Resource Project brings you the Decorah Eagles from atop their tree at the fish hatchery in Decorah, Iowa. The eggs are supposed to hatch any time today.

Fantastic - thanks for sharing.

The local aviary has two Falcon Cams for nesting pairs of Peregrine Falcons. I follow their twitter feed and they've been live tweeting each egg that's been laid.

I love the big predator birds. This makes me happy. :)

This better not turn out to be an April fool's joke, with some alien eagle popping out of momma eagle's chest.

On second thought, that would be kind of awesome.

I never saw a bald eagle in person until I went to visit my Mom in the Puget Sound area. She said "look" and I made her stop & pull over so I could look at this HUGE (they look so small on stamps, seals, monies, etc) AWESOME FREAKING BIRD on a telephone poll. Seriously magnificent & looks like it could kick your ass.

Last spring, I think it was, we were enjoying a beer in the back yard within the city limits of St. Louis, and my buddy, looking over my shoulder, almost chokes. "The fuck!?!?" Landing to perch in the tree across the street was a Bald Eagle.

Now, I've been up to Grafton, IL to try and take pictures of them at their winter roost. But never up close in "the wild". Goddamn, that's a big, tough-looking bird. Like it'd just as well eat your liver than look at you (incidentally, a good description of US foreign policy, sometimes). *That's* why they picked it for a national bird.

From the FAQ:


How big is the nest?
5-6 feet across, about the same deep; it weighs about 1½ tons.


(emphasis mine). This seemed so outlandish to me, I actually looked up the density of various kinds of wood, and it seems to be reasonable. If you were looking for more proof of the badassitude of eagles, well, there it is.

Sometimes I wish I had Bill Gates kind of money so that I could come up with idiotic schemes, simply to amuse myself. You know, something utterly ridiculous, but you have so much money that people would pretend you were not insane, pocket the money, and walk away wondering how long ago you totally lost it. Set up a foundation, invest money, hire a few people, all as a complete joke, but maintain it like I was completely, totally serious about it the whole time.

I have come up with two schemes so far. One is to start a foundation to provide toupees for the bald eagles. The other is a shelter for battered cod.

I dream that some day I will have the cash to actually do one or the other, because it would amuse the hell out of me to stage a joke that elaborate.

If anyone wants to help out, we can start with these eagles here. Bald, both of them. Start measuring for the toupees.

I wonder if there's any evolutionary survival benefit to the "baldness" or if they just think its sexy.
posted by longdaysjourney at 8:58 AM on April 1, 2011


Sorry, that should be "practical evolutionary survival benefit". Increased attractiveness to the other sex would also be a benefit, but perhaps not in keeping one's stomach full/chicks healthy, etc.

Well, I'll probably be at work when the eaglets hatch, but having this open in the background is a great ambient soundtrack.
posted by oneirodynia at 9:07 AM on April 1, 2011


Well if they think it's sexy it at least isn't a sexual selection thing, because the males and females have the same color patterns. But it could be as simple as "Am I an aggressive, territorial male? Or am I a receptive female? Ha ha, you can't tell if I am a guy or a girl until you get close, so you sure as heck better be sure you want to get close before you fly on over. You feeling lucky?".

Re: Eagles
I recently worked on the King County landfill in Renton WA, and the staff were total eagle fanatics. In early Feb., they hadn't quite come back yet, but the staff knew they would be back soon. The next time, near to the end of the month, there were ~12-20 big eagles that put the 3000+ crows off there roosts in the cottonwoods every morning. The crows bitched, but big is big. They also live off of the dead seagulls which are regularly offed when they approach the live "tipping edge" of the landfill, (by the control officer). Eagles are cool. (and BIG). It was really cool to see all the raptors catch the thermals off the methane flaring stacks, (BOOM, straight up). Oh yeah, they also nest right next to the landfill.

Really quite something to watch. I mean, all mammal moms need to do is be there, whereas this deliberate, complicated, delicate feeding (presumably both parents will do this in turn), is pretty sophisticated stuff to know how to do. Sure, they're not first-time parents, but just imagine them just going on instinct (right?) the first time...

Nobody taught them how to do that, they just got the urge, and then BAM: nest.

A lot of nests are used season after season, and are added to and remodeled over the years. I mean, a basic, first-ever nest is going to be a pretty decent size, because eagles are big! But a 10-year-old nest is going to be gigantic.

I wonder if this is happening: "Many species lay two eggs, but the older, larger chick frequently kills its younger sibling once it has hatched. The dominant chick tends to be the female, as they are bigger than the male. The parents take no action to stop the killing."

silverstatue - tough to watch sometimes, that. Descriptions of eagle-rearing tend to underline the fact that the parents do not intervene, even if one sibling kills the other.

Love the kitchen area with the smorgasbord of carnivores' gourmet delights, the verandah/deck area, master bedroom obviously king sized with a picture window from which those adorably fluffy, little aggressive rascals are now constantly peering. But I didn't realize it is that big. Whoah. 3000 pounds?! That's immense. Major Hollywood mansion there. Obviously they have a maid who comes in, the place is immaculate. That or they poop over the edge.

A 3-ton nest even. wow, they're serious building contractors.
