Nesting Bald Eagle

In the Pacific Northwest we have a lot of Bald Eagles. When we lived on an island we had an eagle nest in the woods across the street from our house. Every year we enjoyed watching them rebuild their nest and raise their young. So I would like to share a website with you that has a webcam aimed at an eagle nest where the pair are currently sitting on three eggs. I just saw them! It's with the Hancock Wildlife Foundation.

Today I have been watching the bald eagle nest webcam at the Hancock Wildlife Foundation website. One of the eagles is sitting on the nest, and there has been a pair of sparrows hopping around the nest behind the eagle. Finally, the male sparrow leaped into the nest, grabbed a piece of straw and promptly made a hasty retreat. A few moments later he returned and stole a piece of the eagle's nest. Now that's one brave sparrow!
