Life and death with the eagles
Placeholder Image
Last year about this time, I talked with you about how technology is bringing the magic of nature -- specifically, the majesty of American’s symbol, the bald eagle – into our living rooms. In a number of places across the country, scientists and environmental organizations have set up small, solar-powered cameras known as webcams above the nests of mating bald eagles. The 24/7 cameras allow us to have round-the-clock views of the mating process, egg laying, hatching of young eaglets and eventually fledging -- the process by which chicks fly for the first time.
