    Okay, so it's not MY baby. :c

    I've been watching a streaming cam for the past three days. No, it's not porn. What it is is a live cam on an eagles' nest, with three eggs in it. The first is was supposed to hatch between 3/30 and 4/1, which is today.
    Here's a few interesting facts:
    How high is the nest?
    About 80 feet.

    How big is the nest?
    5-6 feet across, about the same deep; it weighs about 1½ tons.

    How old is the nest?
    The eagles built it in 2007. A previous nest close by fell when a windstorm broke one of the branches.


    Ever so often when the parents change places, they'll zoom in on the eggs. Today it appears there are small holes in a couple of them, so I'll just keep watching I guess.
    I've gotten some pretty good screenshots as well:

    I was reading today, and it said an average adult male has a 7 foot wingspan, and the female is bigger. And the best way to determine who's mom and who's dad is that visor over the eyes. The females visor travels more toward the back of her head. I just want to see one of these little guys poke their head out of the shell.
    Looks like these eggs will open about 2 days apart. I have them fullscreen on my other monitor. :D
    Congratulations? I never even made it to first base with her! :weird:

    Night before last, mom came home with a bigass dead rabbit. It's still laying there. You can see it ever so often. Potential babyfood maybe? :scratch:

    Right now Dad's in the nest. But it seems he's hollerin' for the bitch to get her ass home. I think he wants to go take a dump and read the sports section.
