I live along the Willamette River with a nearby wilderness area and little island (great for hiking) that juts out into the river-about four blocks from my house. We're seeing a lot of visitors with binoculars in the area right now...everyone wanting to watch the bald eagle nest. I heard the "scream" of one of the eagles early this morning as I was walking Gracie, so we headed in that direction, and paused to watch one of them land in the nest, take a few photos, etc. There are several folks who live right in that area with direct day-long access to this free nature show. One of the neighbors told me last night that there are, indeed, eaglets now in the nest. I may have to set up a lawn chair with my own binoculars so I can watch the comings and goings of the parents and maybe catch a glimpse of the babies.
I took these photos this morning...yes, it's a little difficult to see the eagle (and the nest) from these photos, but I could easily see a part of the eagle's body and white head popping up from the nest.
One of my favorite streaming cams is this nest from Minnesota...two eggs have now been laid:
