Stuff we like

I really like this.

It's the latest Internet sensation, and it has nothing to do with laughing babies or Charlie Sheen or cute kitties and puppies.

Or if you prefer, it's the latest reality show about a family that hasn't cast snotty, self-absorbed housewives or Guidos and Guidettes from the Jersey shore in the leading roles.

This is as real as it gets.

An organization known as The Raptor Resource Project has set up a camera that streams live video from a bald eagle's nest with three hatchings in Decorah, Iowa.

As I watch now, one of the eagles, is sitting on the young to keep them warm.

Yesterday as I watched, one of the eagles, came back from a hunting trip for food.

What makes this so amazing, in my opinion, is the incredible quality of the live images.

In the upper right hand corner of the video, there's a highway where an occasional car whizzes past, no doubt equipped with GPS and satellite radio, Meanwhile, in a tree high above the road, the pair of eagles do what eagles have done for thousands of years.

I've embedded the feed below. You can also go directly to the Raptor Resource Project feed page which has lots more info and some archived videos.
