For the past two months I've been sharing my office with a family of five from Decorah, Iowa...a family of eagles that is.

A friend sent me a link to this web site that has since gone viral on UStream www.ustream.tv/decoraheagles and more than 70,000,000 viewers have logged in to watch 3 little eggs hatch, grow and prepare for adult 'eaglehood'.
