5. You have to endure a commercial when you first go to the site,
but here's an eagle cam & an owl cam. I got hooked on the hummingbird cam last year & tuned in late to the owl cam, they had just fledged.

Technology can be sooooo cool!

9. Damn, I stopped watching for a bit, and now one of them is gone
he/she was flapping their wings a lot earlier, perhaps it flew off?

10. Yes, for a moment it was actually trying to hold on to the camera
but you could tell be the sound that hard plastic is not very conducive as a landing perch for a first flight.

It is now on a branch nearby as mom just delivered nourishment to it off camera.
