Xcel Energy Bird Cams

Great shots from the Xcel Energy Eagle Cam. These are from the eagle news page at the Xcel Bird Cam site:

Marrch 13, 2005 A snowy late afternoon in the eagle nest. The adult's feathers are good protection from inclement weather. Notice that within a few minutes (and probably a good shake), the feathers have repelled the snow.

These are only from March 13 when the eagle was incubating. The chicks hatched late in the month so with the blizzard that just happened, the eagle has to protect them once again. You can watch the current progess at the Xcel eagle cam.

The great horned owl cam shows that their chicks hatched over the weekend and the falcon cams show that three of the four females are incubating. So if you can't go birding outside you can at least do some birding on the internet.
