This morning before class I was checking the camera feed and the project wiki page preparing for class when I noticed one of the eagles in the nest. I typically don’t see the eagle in the morning so this was a nice surprise.
Watching the eagle I could not help but think about whether or not the eagle actually feels cold in this weather?
With wind chill it is currently -9 degrees F. That is cold my friends. I was freezing just walking to my car this morning. I don’t have to sit out in the weather all day 80 feet off the ground with 30 mph winds.
Obviously the first thing is to get all the snow melted/removed from inside the nest. Right? However, how does the eagle stay warm? That is what I want YOU to figure out. Leave a post, email me, or students leave a comment in Edmodo. I will compile your research and share on the blog. I honestly don’t know, but why not the masses of all you wonderful students to find the answer. I await your sharing of knowledge.
Last, here is a little stick biting action.
Have a great day!
