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.
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.
