A Difficult day followed by a difficult decision
It is with a sense of deep frustration and sincere regret that I have made the decision this morning to NOT continue updating this BLOG on any regular basis. The lact of technical support and dependability with the still and live cams out of NCTC makes it evident that to try to do so is futile on my part and most likely also equally frustrating for you as a reader. IF and When I see that the cam situation has actually been resolved I will once again feature with their own BLOG the First nest and the eagle pair that still captures my heart. I will include them on the For The Love Of Eagles BLOG on a regular basis provided I can get the photos and maybe even an occasional video of this pair. I will leave you with the picture that speaks a thousand words to me about the struggle and determination to survive that this eagle showed 3 or 4 times yesterday as she strove to get herself through the storm she was facing in that nest...
The pictures start with her almost buried deep in the snow, raising those awesome wings and getting out just long enough to get the snow away and get back to her egg(s) and hatchling(s)...sadly I can't even tell you how many of either eggs or hatchings were in the nest during the storm but it does appear hatching is here, and this very young family has had to deal with horrendous weather on hatching day.
It is my hope and prayer that we will all continue to see this nest flourish through the eagle season. Unfortunately I can not even share an updated photo from today on how they are currently doing as out of the several eagle cams online, many of which experienced or are currently experiencing a storm, it remains the ONLY ONE not viewable, and experience has told me it will stay that way all weekend and then who knows for how long
We Missed pretty much all of the egg laying and we are now missing the hatchings...just not gonna continue on this roller coaster when there are other cams to enjoy while we continue to hope for this situation to change.
Hoping to see you back here, meanwhile enjoy the eagle cams as they are featured on the For the Love of Eagles BLOG.
