If you click on this link, it takes you to a video cam live-streaming the action from an eyrie located in a tall tree on Hornby Island. The parent eagles each take turns sitting on two eggs that were laid in March. The ambient sound is lovely - many other birds are heard in the background - but sit back from your speakers when Mama or Papa Eagle decides to let loose with an eardrum-piercing cry. There's also a wide-angle view camera installed in a perch above the nest that gives you a different perspective of its location, with regard to other trees, the shoreline, a couple of buildings and even a road far below.
Be patient. Mama and Papa often adjust their position and when they do, you'll catch a glimpse of the eggs. And soon there will be eaglets pecking their way out of the shell, keeping their parents busy with the task of feeding them and tending to their needs.
Today is a noisy day at the Hornby Eagles' eyrie; unfortunately the wind flow is playing havoc with the microphone.
