Bald Eagle Hatching Babies Seen by WebCam

Here’s a live webcam of a bald eagle nest where one baby was just hatched. The second egg was buried deeper in the nest by the father. We don’t know if this means they are giving up on it or not.

They’ve recorded video of the first baby eagle from this mother. Here’s the story from Berry College in Mount Berry, GA. There’s more on their Facebook Page.

The baby bald eagle you can see when the mother stands up is only a few days old, hatched February 22.

But more than just being a viewer, think of a great webcam video you could set up and stream as a way to get your name out. Unless you’re a school or other non-profit, you will not get the free help they did.

Georgia Power donated a truck and manpower to install a small camera with a direct view of the nest. An outdoor Sony PTZ camera (pan–tilt–zoom) was mounted on top of an emergency call station 500 feet away from the nest and another 400 feet away from a building in the opposite direction. As you can see, the telephoto lens on this camera does a great job.

The wireless transmission equipment was donated by Fluidmesh Networks in accordance with the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service guidelines for photography of wildlife. Two Fluidmesh VOLOS were used in this application along with a high end SONY surveillance camera. Overall, the cost to do this runs somewhere between $2-4K.

Once paired, bald eagles remain together until one dies. The bald eagle is the national bird of the U.S. It appears on the Great Seal of the United States. This Seal was adopted in 1782.

Duplication and Transfer Business

Start Your Own Video Duplication and Transfer Business

The duplication and transfer businesses are a natural for anyone who produces videos. You probably already own most of the equipment. Why not turn it into profit? And if you don’t own the equipment, this is a low cost business to start. And you can outsource the work. Transferring photos, slides and all kinds of film to DVD, USB drives and the Cloud is a bigger business than you may realize. There’s a reason CVS, Walgreen’s and every other chain offers these services. Because there’s a lot of money in it! But you have many advantages over the corporations – you’re local; you care about you work; and you can turn it around quickly. Check out this business and see if you don’t agree that it’s a creative and profitable business you should pursue.
