I had a wonderpurr birthday yesterday. Mom came home with some special food for me. It's Chicken Liver Pate with Quail Eggs. Mmmh yumm. I had to share one container with Mietzi. Then Mietzei and I got to go outside. The sun was shining and it was 65. Mietzi was in her harness because she is a bad girl and she runs away. So I was showing off in front of her and ran really fast by her. Mietzi can't run in her harness, MOL. I am still waiting for a "real" present. I think I'll look thru some cat catalogues and then whisper to Mom what I want when she sleeps.
Back inside we went for some more eagle watching. Mietzi kept asking Mom: Where exactly is Decorah, Iowa. Because there is a half-eaten fish in the eagle's nest and Mietzi was gonna go and ask Momma Eagle: "Are you gonna eat that?" Good thinking Mietzi. That fish is gonna spoil soon.
I don't know if it's always the Momma Eagle sitting on the nest or if Mom and Dad take turns. It's hard to tell them apart and I haven't seen any change-offs. If he just hunts that is an easy job because they live next to a fish hatchery. And Momma got the tough job taking care of the kids all day long, MOL. You can even see them at night because there is a light shining on them. I hope it's not too bright. I think Momma needs a light switch to turn the light off for nighty time. Can you tell, I love my eagles. They are quite fascinating. I love it when Momma settles into the nest and she does something that looks almost like kneading. Wiggling around until she got the chicks situated just right.
Oh ya, I was gonna say thank you. I almost forgot. Thank you to all my wonderfurr friends for my birthday gifts, well wished and pmails:

Thank you so furry much. Love you all.
Momma Eagle just ate most of the fish and fed some to the babies too. But there are two more fishes and something that might be a bunny laying in the nest. Papa was there to replenish the pantry and to say Good Morning but then he left again. I guess that answers my question. Must be the Momma who is doing all the child rearing.
You all have a pawsome day.
Your Eagle enthusiast Timo

That's right Tabbies, with Quail eggs on top. Yumm Yumm.
Molly, I have noticed the huge talons too and the beak isn't bad either. If I'm gonna like birds then I'm going for real birds like Eagles. Not them little finches and sparrows and things. Yeah, Eagles are a manly kind of bird.
Hey Trout Towne Tabbies: Did you know that the Eagles live on the banks of the babbling waters of TROUT RUN? I bet that's close to where you live. There is some info on them on their webpage on Ustream. Like they got married in the winter of 2007. Just scroll down.
We have a lot of the same friends and I corraled you and your sis when we were doing River and Simones quiz. We love the fact that you get to watch the Eagles. How cool is that! All we get to see is squirrels, doves, some local birds and our crazy sisdog chasing a rabbit in the backyard (which she will never catch)
