    Oh Yes, I've been watching them religiously. Shed many tears when Momma was killed on the 26th of this month. She and Dad were at the airport on the runway as a plane was landing. The Dad was able to get out of the way but Momma didn't. She was hit by the landing gear. The eaglets have since been moved to a Wildlife Center in Waynesboro, VA. They determined that it would not be possible for Dad to raise them on his own .... that they would triple in size in the next few weeks (they are so big already) and he wouldn't be able to bring enough food for them. I hated to see them taken from Dad, but they seem to be doing OK in their new "man-made" nest and enclosure in Waynesboro. They plan to release them at the appropriate time near the St. James River where there is a large "encampment" :) of other eagles.
