    While we are inclined to give new parents their privacy, I think this could be the exception. Besides, we've overloaded the camera anyway. :D

    Enjoy!

    Resource limit reached. Apparently this is something everyone wants to watch.

    Caught part of it yesterday afternoon. And to be honest, I found this more exciting to watch than following any of the other threads here. Caught the first one trying to break out. And with that, one down, one to go!

    I agree! I finally got connected, and watched most of the night. "Majestic" just doesn't quite cover it.

    The second eaglet is on its way, as a pip has been spotted.

    With the last picture, you would think they would feel like they've died and gone to heaven if they ever found their way to a fish/sushi market in Tokyo or San Francisco. ;)

    Anyway, on the webcam's and NPR's sites, the top names for the eaglets are:

    1. Ronnie and Nancy
    2. Don (Henley) and Glenn (Frey)
    3. Gladys Knight and The Pip
    Personally, it's a tossup between #1 and #2 as both are fitting, given this year so far, but #3... touche. :D

    Following up on this. The Eaglets have been named.

    The only question is... Who is who? :confused::)
