Hi, it's Steve Chase, and it's time for another Eagle-Cam update. Today is Tuesday the 21st of April, and I'm sitting here at my computer watching our new video feed from the NCTC Eagle-Cam. We have a partnership with the good folks at myoutdoortv.com, and they're hosting the video feed from the NCTC nest, and it gives us really good picture of the nest and lots of bandwidth. So lots of people can click into it. So we're hoping you'll be able to take a look at the live feed from the cam.
Right now our young eaglet is sleeping. It's been a wet few days, and it's finally drying out. So it's giving it time to relax a bit after being sheltered by both of the adults during heavy rains that we had yesterday.
You can see that the color of the eaglet is changing as new feathers start to come in, and with the abundance of food that the adults are bringing into the nest, the eaglet continues to grow a great deal.
We're still going to have many, many weeks of growth before this critter is ready to take its first flight, but if you watch the video feed on the myoutdoortv site, you'll be able to watch every day as this critter continues to grow.
So we will continue to watch the Eagle-Cam and hope you will, too. Again, the new address is www.myoutdoortv.com. Once you get to the main website, you can just do a quick search for Eagle-Cam and you'll be able to see the latest action here from Shepherdstown.
This is Steve Chase and we'll have another update soon.
