The three eaglets continue to eat and grow. We are still working on some technical issues, but the video stream has improved. As you all have noticed, the sound is out, but we hope to get that back today if possible.
Some have asked how we know it is the same parents using the nest each year. Research says when a pair builds a nest they will use it as long as they are successful or until it falls out of the tree (usually because it gets too heavy or a storm knocks it out). We also know from our local observations that Liberty and Justice stay here in the Quad Cities pretty much year-round. Even when they are not using the nest much in August and September we see them in other trees near the nest on a regular basis.
