Eaglet video

Below is a video someone pulled from the live feed on the morning of March 12, 2010 of the Norfolk Eagle nest cam. At first you see mom on the nest looking very wet. She calls and calls. At about one third in she gets off the nest and you can see the new eaglet pop up. Her little head is so heavy that she kind of bobbles as she looks around. That is where the term 'bobble head' for the newly hatched eagles came about. Since the camera is tightly focused, on the nest you do not see dad arrive, but you do get to see him get into the nest bowl and settle down. If the video is unclear look for the original here.
