Watch Live Video: Iowa Eagle Mother and Hatchlings

This is the internet and HD video at its’ best…  Click on the video link below to see a mother bald eagle on her nest tending to three hatchlings. Last I looked they had not hatched yet. The Raptor Resource Project in Iowa has two cameras positioned to capture the moment.  I don’t know how long this live video coverage will be up, but you have to see this [ CLICK HERE ] .



The Raptor Resource Project (RRP) maintains the cams, of which there are two, and the feed is streamed online 24/7. Both are positioned on one of the nest’s supporting limbs about 4-5 feet above the nest. The main cam is automated and is trained on the nest. The other cam has pan-tilt-zoom capabilities (PTZ). At dark the main cam switches to infrared (invisible to the eagles) night-time view. Here is a slide show of the cam installation in fall 2010.
