Hornby Eagles

Progress! Thanks to booni, wren, AJL, and Cali, we have a fun video to show you of cam installation day. We are still working on the technical side of things ~ there are always a few knots to untangle as we're sure you can appreciate. We will post here at least 24 hours before the cam goes live, and in the meantime will soon post show the first few still pics that we've taken.

HAPPY EASTER



A belated thanks PE! Grin

I'd seen that on my FB page, but for some reason, neglected to post it here. I'm glad someone was on the ball! Green LOL

Hello everyone! I've been around a very long time but this i my first post! A friend sent me this link. It's a video of an eagle actually swimming. I was amazed! I welcome any comments and have a great day!

Hey charlie013 and Welcome to Hornby! :hello:

I'm glad you made your first post in Hornby! Grin

Thanks for the video! I got the same email from my cousin and yes, it's amazing. Nodding yes The eagle was going for a Nutria (a large rodent, weighing up to 20 lbs. ) and used a little ingenuity to get it...and it paid off. He got himself a feast! Eagles are actually very good swimmers and a master of the breast stroke, but most people don't realize they can swim when they have to.

Isn't it great how Mother Nature takes care of her own?

I wonder what Doug thinks about the new cam going up in Gregs tree? he hasnt said anything about it,I would think he would be happy as he doesnt have to have the responsiability of running the equipment 24 hours,plus there is no reason to bother him anymore,although he is still a valued historian of mom and dad hornby I hope he will be invited to give his perception and views being displayed from the new cam. Have a nice day nightowl and all.
