Been watching a big bird feeding fish to a little grey ball of fluff! Very cute. Both parents have been hanging around today, probably because of the baby.

TWO babies. Dad better get back with fresh food soon. Mom was reduced to feeding the older kid that black bird.

Is there a light on all the time? It sure looks like it by the night view. In my opinion there should not be any light on during the night.

The camera automatically switches to inferred at night. That is why it is Black and White instead of color.

Is a little breezy up in the nest. Been eating lots of fish and a squirrel and a blackbird.

Since 90% of it is the backside of a bird, it's not really that interesting. Right now (3:30 p.m. on Sunday 4/27), however, both babies are getting an afternoon snack of fresh fish.

I have a question. I have gone onto the eagle cam site a few times, using Brandon's address. Now I can't get on. I love to watch the eagles. I tried downloading the video player and it doesn't work. It won't do anything. I really want to watch the eagles. My husband likes seeing them also. HELP

Sometimes takes a while to connect. I often leave, do something else, and when I return, there is usually an image.

I had been using this address to see the eagle, however I am no longer able to access the web cam. Is there some other way to see it? I really love watching the eagles please help.
Top

Posted by Amorette F. Allison (+1917) 7 years ago
If you get "connection failed," there are too many people on line trying to watch. You can wait a few minutes and sometimes it will get through. Let the page sit while you go off and do something else and then come back.

And sometimes, you can't get through. Too many eagle fans.

Why the random presentation of comments on this site? They do not appear in chronological order. Also question some of the advertisements. Many viewers are probably not looking for women, etc., they are just here to view the eagles!!
Top

Posted by Amorette F. Allison (+1917) 7 years ago
The eagle site is run by Click Stream. I have no idea why the comments are in the order they are in, except your own comments always appear at the top. As for the ads, those are placed by an advertising service that Click Stream hired. Nobody local has anything to do with it.

I assumed that was the case, but the order of comments is interesting.

Posted by Amorette F. Allison (+1917) 7 years ago
I cannot figure out that order of comments, either. It looks like Facebook format but the order makes no sense to me. Both babies are doing well as of this morning!
Top
Posted by DHinPH (+99) 7 years ago
The order is by social ranking, if you click on the arrow next to the number of comments and select Reverse Rhronological it will display the newest comments first.

They are starting to sit very close to the edge of the nest. Maybe they are trying to get a Good seat for watching the BHS parade.

They are amazingly fun to watch. Thanks to all who made this possible. I love it!!! I think the baby eaglets should be named Kathy and Dean in honor of two individuals who devoted tons of hours to give us all this great view of our resident Eagleton family.

Where are the eagles. I see none in the nest. Maybe laying down but cant tell by the picture. No adult.

Look again; they are there. Babies are well camouflaged when the adults aren't there. Right now, Dad is baby-sitting.

OK, now I see them. Last night after storm I couldn't make out any details of them.

I do have one question though..... How the heck can you tell who the dad is

He's the one that comes home at 5:30 holding the briefcase and asks "What's for dinner? Not meatloaf, again?"

Dad is the smaller of the two in the Eagle world. Helps to see them at the same time so you can see which one is smaller in size.

This really is cool to watch. I wonder how much longer the chicks will be in the nest before they're ready to fly off on their own? Will keep enjoying the show until then.

The babies are getting bigger and darker by the second! Aren't flapping their wings much, though. Still eating and snoozing and pooping for the most part.

Too early to let this go out of sight. They are getting so big and just watched one flapping his wings and jumping up and down. I have enjoyed this thread so much. So glad it was started. Thank you.

Wow. They are getting big. No wonder Mom and Dad are hardly ever there. Not much room. If we have bad weather again this weekend, I don't know that Mom can shield them any more.

Last two days Baby eagles are practicing for take off. Wings are flapping a little hop in the nest then stop. They keep looking over the nest looks like they are thinking about getting ready to fly out of the nest.

I WAS born and raised in Miles Ciiy and am having a problem in undertanding where the Eagle nest and camera are located. Just from looking at the Video it looks to me as if the nest is located in the vicinity of the water tower in the City Park.Someone please help me set my mind at ease.
Top

Posted by MRH (+1489) 7 years ago
You are correct, as I think it is in the trees SW of the water tower. If I'm wrong on the directions, someone will assuredly correct me.

Remember the old American Legion building that forms a rough triangle with the bath house and Denton Field? A tree in the little triangular yard there. Panic when the Main Street bridge was replaced because of the nest but the eagles were cool with the project.
Top
Posted by DHinPH (+99) 7 years ago
If you go to www.click2stream.com map at the bottom of their page and zoom in on the Miles City camera, then switch to the satellite view you can see the nest and its location.
Top
Posted by Jay Johnson (+54) 7 years ago
I can't believe it is near the American legion building. How could we be seeing the traffic on Main street from there?
Top
supporter
Posted by Amorette F. Allison (+1917) 7 years ago
You are actually seeing the traffic on the other side of Cook Lake. The angle is deceptive.

I'm not sure what "American Legion" building you're thinking of, Jay. Maybe you're thinking of the VFW?

Legion Hall is at the west end of Main Street near the bathhouse for the swimming pool.
Top
Posted by Jay Johnson (+54) 7 years ago
That would mean the traffic we see passing beneath the nest is on Pleasant St. rather than Main St? That has to be some amazing lens on that camera!
Top
Posted by Jay Johnson (+54) 7 years ago
Hi! I'm speaking of the building across the street from the swimming area bath house. It was the American Legion Hall originally.

Posted by Amorette Allison (+11757) 7 years ago
Yup, the far end of Pleasant Street and First Street is what you are seeing. The buildings on the north side of Cook Lake. Yes, the depth of field on that camera is AMAZING. The bigger baby is doing some serious flapping today.

I think the baby eagles are fun to watch After the eagles leave the nest for the year Someone should go cut some branches off the tree so the leaves don't hide the babies when they get bigger next year. This Eagle Cam is wonderful Thanks bunches for putting the eagles on camera
Top
Posted by Jay Johnson (+54) 7 years ago
Thank you for your explanation. Today is the first time for me to see the green arrow near Main St. in that direction. I assume that is the Eagles nest. Yesterday while I was watching them there was a bird flew in from the left and dived at them and flew by, turned around and dived at them again. It was going so fast I couldn't get a good look at it, but it seemed to have the color of a hawk. It made 09 or 10 passes in a short period of time and each time the eaglet on the right would stretch out its neck and open its beak.
Has anyone else seen this happen?
Top
Posted by bh (+193) 7 years ago
I don't think the branches should be trimmed off the eagles put that nest there for a reason and if you actually go to look at the nest, on the side closest to the camera you will see they built an additional perch for them to watch over the nest. Leave their habitat alone.
Top

Posted by Amorette F. Allison (+1917) 7 years ago
The branches also shade the nest in hot weather.

Looks like two are there at 11:15am sitting together on the left side of the nest.
Top

Posted by Amorette F. Allison (+1917) 7 years ago
One of them has either been hiding behind the branch on the left and/or hopping onto adjacent branches.

They were around this morning and were hanging around outside the nest when we stopped by late morning. They have an area that extends from the nest toward the river where they sometimes sit.

Posted by Leanne Stewart (+205) 7 years ago
So all of a sudden the camera has spanned out? Can they zoom in and out with the camera?

I appears they can zoom with the camera, and that is nice since the young birds are spending so much time on adjacent branches.

They are usually both there with an adult eating breakfast early in the morning. They like to sit in the shade rather than in the sun on the nest. However, they eat at the nest.

We were at a picnic at Pumping Plant Park this evening and a young eagle flew overhead low enough we could all get a good look at him. We are so proud. We did such a good job of bringing up those babies.

Not displaced!! Just zoomed it out for a wider field of view, now that their not on the nest all that much.
