Well I sort of have my own predicament in my nest. Yep, that's my nest above...this is where I spend my time most days. Today's predicament is that I sold out of the "Soar Sampler" and now I'm getting emails from very very sad eagle followers that didn't get a pattern. Well being the "softy" that I am...I've decided to make a change mid-stream, is this allowed?? Here's what I have come up with...
I will continue to sell the pattern for a limited time, rather then a limited number of patterns. I will continue to give a portion of the proceeds to the Raptor Resource Project. BUT, once the eagles fledge the pattern will be retired...sound okay with you all? I've moved the purchase tab over to the side/top of the blog, patterns can be purchased there. I will continue to keep you all up to date on dollar donations made to this wonderful project. DISCLAIMER: I am in no way affiliated with the Raptor Resource Project...I'm just a bird lover at heart, have been totally captivated by this eagle family and want to do my part in helping out those that have made this possible for us to enjoy. Have you made your donations yet? It's just a simple click of the button, paying via PayPal.
As I sit here typing this post I'm hearing what I think is thunder rumbling off in the distance on the web cam. There is nasty weather predicted for the state this weekend, with a good probability of tornadoes. Let's keep our fingers crossed that the weatherman is wrong, for the sake of everyone and the eagle family.
The first little eaglet popped his head out from momma at about 6:15 AM today. By 6:30 the whole nest was awake, with trout on the breakfast menu. (I wish Momma would "clean-the-fridge, too many leftovers...) All three little eaglets seem to be doing well, with E1 still being somewhat bossy. Rumor has it that the bossy first born is a female....YOU GO GIRL!! Really, rumor has it that the nest consists of two females and one male.
