I am not blogging all my eagle posts to this site, but wanted to write up a post letting everyone know that we are underway with the project.
We have a lot of new faces and classrooms in the project this year. There is still time to jump into the project if interested, but act fast as we begin to sort teams over the next few weeks.
We would really love some upper elementary, middle school classes to join to give us a wide range of students. We already have lower elementary and a few upper elementary, but we could always use more. The more kids, the better the project.
If you have not been following along with project, then what are doing? I am kidding, but here is the blog I am keeping on daily eagle activity: http://eagleeyecamera.wordpress.com/
We are expecting the first egg soon in the nest.

We are getting ready to bring more content to the site soon.
Saturday morning when we were getting another nice batch of snow, I took two of my kids with me to go search for eagles. We headed down to the river and made a first stop at Credit Island where we have success time and time again. Our second stop was by the casino on our way to Lock and Dam 15. Finally, we stopped at the lock and dam.
We had great success. I tested out my Google Glass and also brought along my iPad. This trip made me wish I had a high power camera for greater shots, but in the end it all worked out.
We easily spotted well over 25 eagles despite not a lot of open water. I made a short video compiling images and video from the 3 hour journey. I hope you enjoy and we are heading out next weekend to some different spots. It will be any day now before we have an egg from Liberty and Justice. Still a lot of action around the nest so keep those computer running and share any great shots you capture.
Please don’t forget…..
A little announcement, I will be bringing some podcast episodes to the project next week. Let me know what you would like covered. I have John Riches coming in next Thursday to record an episode. John Riches is the Community Relations Manager for ALCOA and none of this would be happening without his help and support to helping me write the grant and offer guidance as needed. He is awesome.
