To those of us who have been following the eagle cam link that was provided in the other thread re hummingbird (http://www.wvec.com/marketplace/microsite-content/eagle-cam.html
), today is a sad day. The Momma eagle was struck by an airplane and killed. The Dad has not yet come back to the nest to feed the eaglets, so it is kinda up in the air right now. Since the nest is monitored, I do not think they will let the eaglets starve to death, but if Dad doesn't come back it looks pretty bad.
