It was endearing to watch my students reactions and instant attachments built as they witnessed throughout the day the behaviors of the mom, dad, and little babies. What conversations were spurred on through our observations. Believe it or not, I hated that we were going on spring break the next week and that we wouldn't be able to continue observing this wonder of nature together. I know many of my students said they were headed home to continue watching the eagles, and I'm also excited to continue watching this unfolding drama!
PS. Thank you Nancy for your passing on this wonderful experience so many more of us could share in the breath-taking excitement of the Project Decorah Eagle Cam! Check out Nancy's blog for more information on the Raptor Resource Project and Decorah Eagle Cam!
Today was career day at our school and we certainly learned about a very real career of being the parent of baby birds. This is a short clip I captured of the birds during one of our other guest speakers:
