Decorah, Iowa - Bald Eagle Cam

http://www.raptorresource.org/eagle_dailies/
Other cams in the area - http://www.raptorresource.org/falcon_cams/index.html
This nest was featured on the Nature show "American Eagle" - and now you can watch it live!

The nest is in Decorah, Iowa; the exact location is not publicized to protect the eagles. Local time is Central time. The pair has been observed since 2002 - you can read the Nest Diaries online at the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation website - but this is its first year online.

Based past experience for this pair, look for eggs in the first half of March, chicks in mid-April, and fledging in early July.

2008-2009 Season:
  • cam on: February 16
  • eggs laid: March 2, 4:58 pm; probably March 5, 5:45 pm (seen morning of March 6); March 9, late afternoon (seen 6:20)
  • hatched: April 9, 7:14 am (38 days); April 10, 1:58 pm (36 days); April 14, 8:36 am (36 days)

Someone on the Maine forum thought they might have had a glimpse of an egg - and she does look as if she's straining a bit in your 9:27 s'cap, Kim. Have you seen anything? :?

Added a few minutes later:
False alarm, I think. Haven't been able to check the whole nest, but have seen more of it. And now they've both left - no egg - yet! :D According to the info in the link in the first post, they have been as early as this, though had their first egg in early March the last couple of years.

Edited again to add:
Interestingly enough, this cam is different in Internet Explorer and Firefox. In IE, it has the camera button Kim mentioned and the "full screen" button they describe, but the image looks a little stretched; in Firefox I just see the cam window and the time at the top, but the proportions look better. I think. I had to download an ActiveX control for IE - so it's possible it uses a plugin Firefox doesn't have yet. :puzzled

It appears to me as if they may not be planning to wait too long - I don't know if they were actually trying to melt the snow out of the nest bowl - but it sort of looked that way! Great pictures, kittenface! :D :D

I haven't heard any sound, Karen, and the cam seems to be more a fast refresh than actual streaming, making me think sound isn't likely here. It would be nice if they could upgrade to add that next year! :wink:
