I haven't visited this topic for a long time! The version of "You are the Wind beneath my wings" is sung by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, the giant man with the little ukulele and an angelic voice, who passed away on June 26, 1997.

------------------------------

One of my favorite videos is Dad Sidney bringing Mom breakfast early in the morning. She sweetly thanks him for it and flies away, to stretch her wings. Dad then takes his turn incubating the eggs.

hot dog! I remembered how to post media from the HMG. (right-click on picture, copy image location, paste that link into post, highlight it and click "img" in the formatting window.)

When I made this video, I was never quite sure which eagles were Mom and Dad and which were the invaders. There were two eggs in the nest. Toward the middle of the video, you will see an eagle eating in the nest. I used to think this was Mom, but I feel sure now that it was one of the invaders eating the food that was brought by Dad. But in the end, we see Mom fly back into the nest, and Dad comes flying up to a branch, and they call to each other. Mom settles back onto the eggs and Dad probably remains in the tree, out of sight of the camera.

The eagle that flies in to attack (and the one being attacked may be another invader) is young -- there are dark marks on the tail.

The full episode lasted an hour... it was probably longer. I didn't see the beginning, when either Mom or Dad must have been in the nest incubating the eggs.

beans---Thank You so much for posting that video from 2007! As soon as the music started I knew which video it was. Our beloved Skye!! Red Heart I think she was the first ever eaglet to be seen up close on a cam thanks to David, and boy was she a ham!! Just think~~~if she made it ~~and I have great faith that she did~~~ she may be having little eaglets of her own. The thought brings tears to my eyes. Anyway---Thank You

Beans, every time I watch those videos of Skye it brings back so many wonderful memories of Ma & Pa in the once beautiful Garry oak tree. She was such a character and it was wonderful to have the closeup cam right there where she could play with it Wub And that was something she did quite often; she must have been lonely and bored at times.
