This is way too cool

There’s a gonna be a baby eagle hatch here in the next couple of days and you can watch it live.  Actually I think there’s going to be two but the first one is expected over the weekend. 

I don’t usually go ga-ga over this kind of crap but this one’s cute.  Make sure you turn the sound on too.  Someone was running a chainsaw close by this morning and whichever of the eagles was sitting on the eggs wasn’t too happy about that. 

We’re parked east of Saskatoon in Murray & Jill’s yard but not for much longer.  We’ve been here close to a week now and we’re anxious to get out before the weather goes to hell.  Marilyn had a meeting in town today – she wasn’t sure how long that might take so I stayed here with the plan that I will break camp after lunch and head into the city.  We’re at the wrong end of about 12 miles of gravel road which is just fine as long as its dry but not so great if it rains. 

More importantly Murray & Jill are great hosts and we don’t want to wear out our welcome here.  We had a pretty busy week so we didn’t see a whole lot of each other but that’s not unusual when we park here.
