If everything poops, wouldn't the eagle poop on the eggs? Or would that just keep the eggs warmer?
When eagles fart, does it make their eggs warmer? Does it effect the eggs, since you know, farts have, I don't know, fart chemicals?
What does and eagle's turd look like?
Dear TURD, I looked very hard but couldn't find a sufficient picture of an eagle's turd. Sorry, maybe you should try your hand at it. I would think it would be like a human and a bird turd combined, just my guess. Hoped this helped! -WebSearcher
Dear Anonymous, eagles actually do poop in their nest, which means it is very possible that they poop on their eggs. I do not know if this effects the eggs in any way, but I hope this helped. That way, I can live up to my name
Where are the eagles' ears?
Dear Cauliflower, the ears are located on the side of the head, under the cheek patch. The look like little slits in the feathers. Hope this is a substantial answer.
Yes, thank you Helpful. You have lived up to your name.
I agree with TURD, we should find a picture of an eagle's turd. Do you know what it looks like, Helpful?
Well, my guess is that it looks like normal bird poop, only bigger, because I have seen hawk poop, and the two birds are rather similar. If you've never seen bird poop, it looks like a white spatter, with little black flecks in it sometimes. I found a picture of normal bird poop, so just enlarge it in your mind and... voila! P.S the link to this picture is too long to post, so just go to Google, search "bird poop," scroll down to page 5, and you should see the picture I was talking about. If you want to see more, just keep scrolling, but beware: some of the pictures are pretty gross. Hope this helps!
Apparently, eagles also throw up pellets like owls. Of course, this isn't their poop, but it may satisfy some of your future questions.
Thanks. And whatever happened to Nameless?
Yeah, you should answer his/her question, Helpful, you seem to have all the answers
Dear All - I don't mind that you have questions about the birds' scatological behaviors, however, I do mind that you use inappropriate terminology. Please rename yourself to something more socially acceptable.
With regard to the eagle's bathroom habits, it's true that they defecate while in the nest, however, they aim outside the nest so as not to foul it. The eaglets learn to do this as well.
With regard to the morphological characteristics of said scat, there is a book called "Who did that" which analyzes patterns of bird scat as they hit your windshield. If anyone has it and wishes to bring it to school, I'd love to see it.
Now, remember that young children are viewing the blog - as am I - so let's keep things within reason please.
I believe that the first egg has a small hole in it and our hatch is underway. You may have noted there is a dead rabbit on the left side of the nest. I'm wondering whether this means that the parents are anticipating the hatch.
