Some things you just can't take your eyes off of... like this LIVE eagle cam in Decorah, Iowa that's streaming on the Internet 24 hours a day.
80 feet up in this cottonwood tree, is an impressive nest....it stretches almost 6 feet across but beyond that, there's really not much to see from the ground. From a birds eye view, however...well....that's a different story.
Bob Anderson and some colleagues wanted to be able to watch the eagles inside. Now...they have the world watching with them. "These eagle cams touch many people in many different ways...I'm amazed."
Anderson is the director of the Raptor Research Project. The group has had a camera focused in on this eagle family for five years now..... streaming it for the last few. But last fall, they upgraded to two higher-quality cameras and a better live feed, now hosted on U-Stream. "Because they have servers around the world, it's like watching live TV. Some people call it the best bird cam on planet earth," Anderson says.
The male and female eagles take turns, incubating the eggs.
