The Eaglets have banded!

We've been making occasional visits to the Xcel Energy Eagle Cam, set up over a nest in northeast Colorado. And my goodness, those eaglets are getting big. They now have nearly full adult feathers, though bald eagles don't have white head feathers until they are a few years old. On May 3, they were banded by the Colorado Division of Wildlife. They'll fledge in mid-summer and be on their own by the fall.

Also worth checking out are the osprey cam, and the series of falcon cams the energy company maintains. You will never get a better look at these birds than from your desk.
