eagle cam

Kitty has her new favorite site. Mine is this Eagle Cam 2011 | HAMPTON ROADS NEWS | WVEC.com | News for Hampton Roads, Virginia | Microsite Content. A pair of Bald Eagles at Norfolk (VA) Botanical Garden have 3 eggs. They were very active today and the first egg is expected to hatch tonight or tomorrow. The live camera operates from 6:30 AM to 9:00 PM. There is a moderated discussion to the right of the video where you can ask questions and learn about the eagles.

Enjoy!

Something now working right on the site tonight. The video would not fire off. I'll try again later.

I happen to have the luxury of seeing a Bald Eagle take off from it's nest in the wild in Quetico Provincial Park in Canada canoe camping with the Boy Scouts. They are amazing birds. It had to have at least a 5 maybe 6 foot tip to tip wing span. It was on the other side of the channel we where camping in. We where all in shocked seeing it. You could hear the air moving under it's massive wings. Superiority and grace all in one.

Truly an amazing site to see and I will never forget it.

Thanks

John

Nothing wrong with the site. They turn the camera off at 9:00 PM. It is also hard to see anything except a white head after dark because they had trouble getting the infared aimed into the nest.

You can still see some recorded video of earlier happenings if you scroll down a bit and look to the left of the screen.

The camera will be back on in the morning for the live feed. Hopefully the little guy (or girl) will be free of its shell and make an appearance.

I have been watching this live cam for a couple weeks. A link to it was posted here four days ago before the first egg started to hatch.

Watching them and reading the discussion is very interesting.

It should be fun to watch them when they learn to fly (around the beginning of June, I think.)

With more activity at the nest now (the third egg will most likely hatch on March 17), there may be more posts. I think having all posts in one thread will keep the forums neater and better enable us to see what is happening at the nest.

3rd egg hatched today about 1:30 PM. The oldest (4 days) was very rambunctious today, refusing to stay under Mom and pushing the 2 day old around. They're growing fast and so cute!
The moderator said more than 6500 were reading the discussion at one time this morning. Viewer's ages ranged from 20 months to 86 years and several countries were represented.

Kathy,

I agree it is disappointing to miss the "big events". I have watched for 4-5 hours some days (until my eyes were watery and crossing) and still missed all 3 hatchings. I shut my computer down about 15 minutes before the 3rd one! Hopefully I can see the first flight.

The live feed was down yesterday . It is now working again, so those of us who are addicted and suffered from withdrawal can get our "fix". This is a screen capture of a Saturday (3-19) sunset feeding posted by Reese Lukei of The Center for Conservation Biology.

For anyone who was following this eagle cam, there was Very Sad News today. The female eagle was struck and killed by an airplane. Apparently this evening male eagle has returned to the nest and has fed a fish to the babies.

Very sad, indeed. If the male can't care for the eaglets, they will be removed from the nest. The eaglets were banded just last week and will be able to feed themselves soon if food is brought to the nest. I was looking forward to watching them learn to fly around Memorial Day.

The 3 eaglets were removed from the nest at 10:30 this morning and taken to Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro. The decision was made because it is believed that the adult male won't be able to fulfill their increasing needs without help from the female.

It was so sad to see him bring a fish to an empty nest and look around obviously confused. He brought 3 fish today, one he fed the eaglets around 7 AM, one he left (probably scared off by the work crew on the ground preparing to take the eaglets)and the eaglets tried to feed themslves. He brought the third and left it in the empty nest about 1:30, returning a few hours later and taking it away.

The Wildlife Center will be posting updates and photos of the eaglets at
Wildlife Center of Virginia 2011 Norfolk Botanical Garden Eaglets and
http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/wildlifecenter
They also plan to have a video cam installed soon.

The original webcam and discussion are still operating for awhile at Eagle Cam 2011 | HAMPTON ROADS NEWS | WVEC.com | News for Hampton Roads, Virginia | Microsite Content

Thumbs up we can watch the eaglets again!

Thanks to WVEC and Wildlife Center, live video feed was available from the new "nest" at 6:12 PM EDT! The video isn't as clear as from the nest at NBG, but they are still working on it. They will soon have IR so we can view 24/7. The moderators, along with Ed Clark from WC, are answering questions on the discussion board.

As you know, I began watching a bald eagle nest with 3 eggs at Norfolk Botanical Garden this spring. When the adult female was hit and killed by a plane, the 6-week-old eaglets were removed from the nest and taken to Wildlife Center of Virginia.


Work has been done to the camera at WCV (
www.wvec.com/eaglecam) and the picture is now clear. The new camera also has IR so the eaglets can now be seen 24 hrs/day. They are now "getting some air" and are able to flap their wings and make it 6 feet across the nest. Tree limb "bridges" have been placed from the nest to some rails at the far side of their enclosure and they have ventured out of the nest a few feet. The youngest (the male) has learned to steal food from his sisters.

Norfolk Botanical Garden and the Wildlife Center of Virginia are in the running to receive some grant money through Chase Community Giving. If you have a Facebook account please visit this link:Chase Community Giving on Facebook | Facebook Each Facebook account can vote for each of them 1 time. Top payout is $500,000. Voting ends 5-25-11.

Please vote to enable the Wildlife Center to continue helping wildlife return to the wild and the Botanical Garden to continue bringing the eagles to our computers.

The adult male is still at the garden and other eagles have also been spotted there, so hopefully he will find a new mate and we can watch him raise a new family there again next spring.
