Good Morning Jean & Judy :hello:

Jean I'm thrilled to see you are following this nest! I've decided not to this season but I can tell you that you'll have lots of fun when it is down to one chick! The chick last year was a scream till things went bad.

Best to our beautiful Black Eagles Emoyeni and Thulane, their offspring this year and you all who follow along Wub

Hi Lori! There is a lot going on, and I'm not sure how often I'll be able to stop by either.

I've asked Paul from Africam what the white area in the upper right is - it looked as if it might be a waterfall as it got darker:

Hi Judy and Lori!
I followed last years cam from almost the start till Bafana had to be removed from the nest. I was just posting at Screech Hollow and not venturing out to other threads. Now that all our vacations are over and we will be home for the summer, I will be back to watching more cams along with my dear Morgan in the Ozarks. You will definitely see me here! Smile Were 3 eggs laid with one hatch?
I agree with you Judy with the "static" at the right, you can tell if the streaming is still going. See you back here tomorrow morning!wave

Hey Judy, Jean, and Lori! :hello:

I guess it was just my dumb luck with the cam. Nice s'caps! They really are beautiful eagles.

Jean, from reports, there were only 2 eggs laid. One laid April 17, and the second one April 21. The first one has hatched and the second one is due to hatch June 4. with Cainism due to cease on June 7. :cry1:

I don't know if this is official, but they've named the first one 'Cain'. :ds: I may not even watch for a few days after the second one hatches.

Hi nightowl! I think they always name the two chicks Cain and Abel initially. Sad I do understand this is the way of these birds, but am not planning to watch during the Cain-Abel period, if there is a second chick. I'm not scientist enough to observe that.

Good Morning All! Thanks for the updates Judy B and Nightowl! I was having trouble getting the cam to stream, but it seems to be working alright now.

12:58pm-Mom is incubating. The "stream to the right is still visable. Guess that's good as we can tell if the streaming is working!

I too won't be watching the cainism! I couldn't even watch Sidney when flyer was caught up in the line! I'm really a whimp when it comes to animals in distress. :oops:
I'll be back shortly. Just got up so I'm going to grab some breakfast!

I've heard back from Paul, and it is indeed a waterfall we're seeing in the upper right corner of the screen. They're hoping to add sound at some point (not this season - camera upgrades are not something they could do while the eagles are nesting) - and that would make a nice background sound!

How neat that will be! I don't remember the waterfall last year! Maybe the angle of the cam is different!?:dunno:
