Here are some live cams to watch the eagles in their nest. The West Virginia nest has two eggs and the Hampton, Virginia nest has three. The normal incubation time is thirty five days, so these ought to hatch somewhere around the middle of March.

The other nest don't have any eggs in them at this time.

The sites are as follows:

I have a nest on my place and two others are within sight. The eagles use one of them every year - usually the one across the river from me. The MDC was all excited about them about 12 years ago. They say there are about 120+ nests in MO now. Magnificent birds.

The Mississippi River between Wisconsin and Iowa is an excellent spot to view Eagles this time of year. My father is an avid wildlife photographer and has made a few trips out there this season. Here's some pics from his gallery if interested. (https://picasaweb.google.com/109038919513758014473/BaldEaglesSoaringTheMississippiRiverAtLeClaireIowa Jan15th2011#) I need to take my camera out there one of these times with him he always get some ridiculous shots.

CrazyED, yeah you need to check it out!

There's even a pretty sizable population of golden eagles in that area!
