The Deborah Eagle Cam Video Mystery
One minute Dad is doing what appears to be some kind of house cleaning next to the Eaglets. Then suddenly Dad's head whips to the right and one of his offspring whips with it, right out of the egg cup.
First Dad looks where Eaglet was.
Then he looks where Eaglet went.
Finally he looks around for his mate as he appears not to know what happened nor how to amend the matter or get the eaglet back in the egg cup either.
Both Eaglets are squeaking their brains out so he does what he can. He feeds each of them and then when they still fret he does what one ordinarily does next, he sits on the nest bowl to keep them warm....except one isn't in the nest bowl.
This is worrisome and he can't figure out how to mend it.
Back in 2011, I think Dad was a much younger and quite inexperienced Dad than he is now. Mom on the other hand appears older and more on top of things.
I have a thought about how the Eaglet might have turned into a projectile when Dad whipped his head around. But I'd like to hear your thoughts as well.
Therefore dear Readers, if you'd like to check out the video of the episode at the link below and come up with what you think might have happened and shoot me an email, I think it would be great fun to compare notes.
My email address is up right on the main page.
