These little dears have captured my attention. I check on them several times a day.

 Go here to see them yourself: http://www.ustream.tv/decoraheagles 

I started watching the day before the third eaglet hatched. They used to be downy and as white as their parents' heads. Now they're developing their pin feathers and getting bigger and plumper.

The mom and dad take turns sitting on the babies and feeding them.  This male eagle has had this next for years, and this is his second wife. Did you know that eagles mate for life? You can tell the difference between the mom and dad by their heads. The mom has grey "eyeshadow" behind her eyes and the dad has darker black "eyeliner" really close to his eyes. The mom is also bigger.

Watch out, they shoot streams of poop over the edge of the nest every now and then.

Update: The camera lens is ice coated today, so tomorrow might be a better day to check in on the eagles.
