Buzzing with Mrs. McClain for her
You Oughta Know Blog Hop.
Have you heard? Have you seen?
The eagle cam at Berry College is all the rage amongst students near and far.
Yes, indeed…there is a mama eagle and a daddy eagle that apparently will remain
“an item” a couple for years and years.
We tuned in last year for the first time and we were blown away by the live streaming of this eagle family.
We were “up close and personal” as we observed the lifecycle of eagles.
We might as well have been IN the nest as the parent eagles took turns sitting on the eggs, keeping the newborn eaglets warm and protected, and feeding them freshly caught fish and other small animals.
Here is the link if you would like to tune in as well.
The eaglets are 7 weeks old now and they have changed so much since their initial debut when they were just tiny little balls of light gray fuzz.
Some of my favorite pics:
|Eaglet “hug” at 4 weeks old|
|Beautiful! Their feet!!! 3 1/2 weeks old|
There are lots of photos and information on the site as well.
My kids have loved the eagles for 2 years.
Therefore, I wanted my students to write about the eagles, but I couldn’t find a resource that fit what I had in mind. So, I made a booklet for the students to record their observations as well as the information that they had gathered.
