A Big Day for Bird Watching

At 6:15 am (Pacific Standard Time) the process for banding the eaglets in Virgina began. What an amazing process. Best part of the day for me were these still close-ups of the babies. What a treat to see them up close without the camera swaying!

Here's the link to the website:

Then, this early afternoon the Redtail Hawk chicks (at least two of them) hatched in Portland.

Imagine...this miracle is happening all over the world right now...spring is bringing forth its bounty and because of technology we get to see it! WOW!

(Below are two pictures taken by the Norfolk Botanical Gardens staff during the banding today. Look at their talons!)
