    Thanks very much for this!

    I was very addicted to an eagle cam but they've fledged so I needed a new fix.

    Just when it looks like birth is imminent, she moves to the other room!

    Is she sitting?




    Edit: the answer to my silly question was no, the camera angle just make her backside look very low.

    no...standing. Tail still down.... but moving a lot. It also looks to me as if she is in labor....with contractions every 4 minutes.

    do they sit when they give birth? I thought it was like a horse.
