Nestorations and mating, 1/6/20. I *think* this is the first time mating was caught on camera this year, but I could be wrong. :)

There seems be be a few sites now with eaglets and eggs, and I glance at them all from time to time, but truth to tell i have soured on eagles and do not find anything endearing about them anymore. People on these sites give them all sorts of human emotions they do not exhibit imo, but seems like people want to believe they feel this or that. From the way they feed their nestlings, to eating dead nestlings, they seem detached of any real caring with the exception of a strong instinct to protect their eggs and babies and to provide food, but otherwise detached. True they mate for life - but the female eagle generally speaking treats her mate like a slave and is overbearing most of the time. Male eagles seem to be are wusses up against their mates. The only majesty i see is when they are in flight. I think they are a poor choice as a symbol for America - although with the current administration and its lack of empathy they may be right for times we are in now.

Doesn't make any sense to try and compare human vs. eagle emotions and motivations. I think we all project to a certain extent with a lot of things.

Where you see "detached", I see dedicated.
Where you see "overbearing", I see leadership and strength. :lol

The Cornell Bird Cams are interesting too.

I love the little Bermuda Petrel, looks like a Tribble from Star Trek when snoozing....
