Greetings from the National Eagle Center bloggers

Greetings fellow wildlife fanatics, my name is Scott Mehus and I am the Education Director at the National Eagle Center in Wabasha Minnesota.  I will be one of the employees from the National Eagle Center that will be helping to blog about these magnificent bald eagles who we get watch raise thier young. 

 We were asked to do this last year, but many of you probally know about  the Great-horned Owl family who took over the nest, so I asked a good friend of mine named Karla to blog instead, as she is the areas leading authority on owls.  We are thankfull that MN Bound asked us to help out again, and that they recognize us as a leading authority on eagles.   We at the NEC have just finished up on our SOAR festival which took place each of the weekends in March so we will now hopefully have more time to share with you some cool things about eagles.  BUT, we will also rely on you, those that are watching the cam often to get us all engaged in a discussion on what you are observing. Lets have fun and learn some cool stuff, and remember these eagle cams are a new thing and so what we observe is very important to document.  Researcher in the past did not have the kind of technology that we have today, nor was there  funding to have a researcher sit near a nest round the clock such as we are now able to do, so lets have fun being researchers!!
