Welcome! This site started because I just wanted to create a place to put all the cool info that I’ve come across regarding Bald Eagle cams available to watch in North America and associated info. Will hopefully keep adding and would love to hear from you. I am working hard to keep up with them all, and love to see the similarities and differences between the nests and the Eagles. Any help keeping me updated on major events is much appreciated!
(I started out wanting to have info on Raptor Centers, injured eagle updates, etc, but found out once we got to 30+ Bald eagle cams on the Eagle Cam list that I’d better stay focused pretty much only on things related to North American Bald Eagle Cams – just not enough hours in the day LOL!)
Looks like weather is clearing for a few days. Hopefully enough, for chick to get toasty and move around and get stronger. Prayers for my little feathered family.
Ft St Vrain chick is eating and parent was brooding for a while. If the weather gets better this chick may have a good chance. Let’s keep our positive vibes going and of course lots of prayers.
I’ve been watching the Fort St Vrain cam and I see no movement from chicks at all near the parent bird. Can you see anything??
I haven’t been able to watch that nest too much today, but others are reporting seeing one chick moving and eating. but unfortunately it also looks like little #3 may be gone and has been put outside the nest bowl and is visible on the top cam (on the right side). So hard and so heartbreaking. But hope remains that there are two snuggled under parent.
Thank you Roansbabysis for the updates. Looks like it is going to be great going forward. The weather will cooperate and Dad is stepping up. Good news indeed.
Just checked St Vrain, both parents are in the nest, and does not look like too much snow. It is snowing still, and 2 degrees, but mom has all eaglets covered and dad is right there so hoping and praying they will make it through this storm. Should be close to 40 tomorrow and back in the 60′s rest of the week, so hang on family, you can do this….
The other Ft. Vrain returned so I am relieved. No food yet but it will come. Hopefully the bad weather will bypass them and they can hunt and bring the bounty home.
Watching Ft. Vrain for the first time. Have only seen one parent, eaglets have been left alone for at times and little food for three eaglets. Is there a good food source around and what do you know about the parents? Just curious.
Boy how to begin to answer your questions about the Ft St Vrain nest. It is a challenging nest for sure. There have been a number of successful seasons, but last year was quite tragic, so i know anxieties are high this year. I have seen speculation that this may be a new dad, and inexperienced. But so far, things seem to be going reasonably well. There has been regular food arrivals. For historical info about the nest, there are two great forums with long threads about the nest. The Hancock Wildlife Forum thread at: http://www.hancockwildlife.org/forum/viewtopic.php?showtopic=422621 will give you a great overview in the first post of the thread, and then skip to the last post and read backwards for latest news. The Raptor Resource forum also has an extensive thread at http://www.raptorresource.org/forum/index.php/topic,551.1485.html this one will take to you the current end of the thread, but you can read in any order that makes sense for you. I hope that helps!
Thank you Twizzkid. The blog is certainly helpful for updates of the day since I only get to pop in on weekdays. Praying the weather forecasters are wrong about the next few days. Old man winter go away. Looking forward to a successful nest with three eaglets fledging. Love your site. Peace and blessings.
I am so excited to see number 3 at Fort St. Vrain, I was giving up hope as it had been so long. Hope they treat him well and he has a fighting chance. Thanks for the wonderful updates.
I am intrested in purchasing a cam for a pair of Bald Eagles we have here in Texas just south of Houston. We have met with Fish & Wildlife who would work with us if we will purchase the equipment. The Parks Department here and animal control have aggreed to split the cost. I just can not figure out what to purchase and where, any help would be appreciated.
Hi that sounds like an exciting plan! Let me see what I can do to come up with some resource ideas on who or where you can get some information. It make take a couple of days. And I will email you directly as soon as I have some info. How cool it would be to have another eaglecam!
How do I get my email address off here and change my screen name. Just noticed that gee whiz brain dead.
Hi Janet, I don’t think you can change it, but I went ahead and just changed the name to “J” instead of your email address. I think I found them all – found 3 comments total, but let me know if you see any others. I also had to refresh my browser a couple of times for the change to show up, so don’t panic, if you don’t see it at first. If after a while it still shows your email name, let me know. (just identify yourself as “J” and I’ll know it’s you) when you put your email address into the email address line, only I can see it, others can only see it when you put it in the name part – does that make sense? On your first comment about Ft St Vrain, it didn’t seem to want to “stick”, so I changed it, unapproved the comment and then reapproved. so far I’m not seeing it come back up, but will check periodically to make sure it comes up with “J”. So sorry, I should have noticed it and edited it for you and contacted you in the first place! I know most people don’t want their email out there. Twizz
Thank you so much for this site. I love it. Waiting for the St. Vrain eaglets to pip, so excited. Unfortunately, I am unable, for some reason, to get live video of that site on my phone, so will miss much of the hatching and growing as I am on the road all summer. Any tips to why the buttons don’t work would be appreciated, so I can watch again. Keep up the good work.
thanks so much for the nice words about the site! I’m waiting for that first pip at Ft St Vrain too! About the only help I can offer regarding getting that particular site on your phone is that the site is presented in “Flash”, which if you have an Iphone or other Apple device, I know is not a supported format. However, I think there may be some apps that help work around that. I haven’t tried them since I don’t have an Apple phone. If you google “how to play flash on an iphone” you will see some ideas. I would tread a bit carefully though, and you don’t want to do any “jailbreaking” of your phone. And not all apps are as safe as they appear (sorry that’s the IT person in me talking lol). However I have heard that it can be done in a safe way, I just don’t know the exact details, so you’d have to do some research and check up on the apps. Sorry about that. And if your phone isn’t an iPhone, forget what I said above. lol. Hope that helps a little bit. Twizzkid
I sent an email at 12:52 witht the photo. A second email went out at 1:06. All of these are Central Standard time. You should be getting them – hopefully soon.
I have some of the larger photos saved from Sooner Lake, but didn’t know how to attach them to the earlier note. Would emails work better for updates in the future.
Hi Sandy, I sent you an email, let me know if you don’t get it. Thanks! Twizz
The Sutton Lake cam has it third eaglet. There is also a huge fish in the nest. I think they are going to run out of room. The nest doesn’t look that large. I don’t want any sad stories out of here.
I know you will be away from the computer today. Could you tell me where you found video of the Wolf River cam? Now that I learned how to do print screens, I may as wll as practice. Maybe I can avoid becoming so excited about things I don’t forget to get the shot. No rush on the info.
Thanks for the help and all your hard work. I know have three family members following your updates. It is a wonderful way to keep up-to-date!!
Hi Sandy! I don’t really have a particular place where I find videos. I actually rarely use them for screen shots, generally I am lucky enough to be watching live (so fall back to video only on rare occasion – or use my own videos) In fact my stories are often a bit delayed while I wait to grab a shot while watching the cams. But to answer your question about where the videos are, I often will see that someone has posted a video on Facebook. And if you want to practice in screen capturing from video, you might go to the “more” page on the menu up top of this site and then go to the “super video people” page. That’s a list of folks who regularly do video captures of the nests. If you click on their name, it will take you to their video channel and they do lots of great videos! Hope that helps!
Earlier tonight I had the wolf river cam up and I was watching for the owlet. I did get to see the cute little guy. I was so involved in watching I totally forgot to get a screen capture. However, the owlet was very clear to see and was moving around. I am finding myself so absorbed is some of my viewing, I am totally forgetting to capture photos for others to see. I will try and improve on that. I just wanted to alert you to the guy little guy. Bonnie was working on feeding. She has a lot of snow around her, so helpfully she can keep the little guy warm.
Nice job twizzkid , helps to keep track of the many cams around .Thank You so much for time and energy .
Thanks so much for the nice words and taking the time to comment Soaring! It really means a lot!
I have no clue how you ever get any sleep! I’ve spent a little more time on the blog tonight and discovered all the things their really are on here and am amazed! I will post this link on CIEL – you may have but doesn’t seem like you are one to give much of a shout out for yourself:) and also would like to mention the things for sale – very cool design(s) – with 50% going to eagle cams is very generous indeed. Thank you Twizz for all you do.
I was told they wouldn’t be active again this year. It must mean the female is only fertile for a limited period each year. I guess it is time to go and do some research.
Both MN Nests are being covered in snow. The eagle on the DNR nest was covered in snow last hour. The MN Bound nest had the female on the nest for awhile this eveningm, but she did leave the nest. We are expecting up to six more inches of snow at the MN Bound nest and well as here at home.
The second egg on the MN DNR nest is cracked and partially opened. I was just on the site and saw it. Maybe if the eggs were destroyed, they would try again this year.
I haven’t been online today, so you may have already posted.
thanks Sandy! No, I hadn’t been on the site, so thank you for letting me know. Wouldn’t that be something if they did try again! There is still time, but I wonder if their hormones were in gear back in January, if they will again. No idea!
Hi Twizzkid, this is a great tool! You’ve done a wonderful job, and I plan to use it a lot. I might be interested in doing something similar for other raptors. Email me if you’re willing to share information.
Hiya, twizz. I first looked at your site last year when you were first developing it, and I hadn’t looked again lately. What a remarkable job you have done! Very useful, I’ve put it near the top of my eaglecam bookmarks. Thanks!
Hiya elf! Thanks so much for the kind words! I really appreciate it!
Love your site Juli and I posted this link on the Eagle Friends page…not that you have to be, but i could have sworn you were a member. Thanks and see you tomorrow on the nest I am sure. Photofun <3
Thanks so much Lynne! I am for sure on EF – am I missing somewhere? LOL see ya tomorrow <3
Thanks for the update. Sad to read this but hopefully there will be hatchings next season.
Nice site.. just read for the first time
thank you and welcome to the site!
Just a note to let you know the second eaglet at the MN Bound nest has its foot and/or wing caught in nest material. Mom has been working on digging it out. She is keeping it well feed. Dad just came in and stole the fish. I don’t know hour early today it all happened.
Thanks, just found out about it too. sigh.
Thanks for finding out more. It sure is sad. I started to watch the video, but opted not to watch the fall. I haven’t been following the nests these past few days. There has been a death in our family and my attention has been directed there. Thanks again for keeping everyone updated, even in the sad times. This season sure has had its ups and more than enough downs.
The MN Bound nest lost the youngest eaglet today. I don’t know how it fell out. I haven’t been on the cam today, so I don’t know what was going on.
The MN Bound nest lost one of their eaglets today. I haven’t been able to be on the cam. I was told by a family member the youngest eaglet some how fell out of the nest.
Oh no! thank you for letting me know. I will go see what I can find out and post. I love that nest and those two! was busy with hatching nests today. So really appreciate the heads up! darn! Twizz
I don’t know how much blogging you would like done. I tend to watch more in the hatching season versus fledging. Your site actually saved me a lot of time this year. Last year I followe NBG and Decorah. This year we were both following all of the cams. If I can help you out, let me know. My time is limited, so it would depend on what you are actually looking for.
Hi, I’m glad you found the site saved you time! Thanks for offering to help. Really, the best way to help is if something major happens at the nests you normally watch, and you don’t see that I’ve blogged about it on the main page, drop a comment anywhere on the site to give me a heads up. There are times I’ll get focused on one nest and totally miss something major at another. Or will get sidetracked away from the nests for a while. So a heads up is always appreciated when something significant happens at a nest you are watching!
Really glad to find another soul with wings!
Are you having problems with the Hancock Sites? My are either black or freezing right away when the feed starts.
I have been hitting the wrong keys and this is my third attempt at sending this message. If the others made it through – I am sorry.
Did not have trouble when I looked today (guess I got lucky), but did see a mention in another forum that they were down for some time, but are now back up. Hope they are working for you now.
HI, Thanks for all the kind words. You are right, I do have a keeper. I was lucky to find him. We celebrate our 13th anniversary on the 8th of May.
After reading your note, I went back to the Hatch Watch Calendar and decided to check out the “print” button to the left of the word week. Everything is working fine. I couldn’t remember how I had done it the first time. I had tried the print button on the bottom and produces the summary.
I guess it is never to late to teach an old dog new tricks. I made a note so I will remember for next printing.
I loved the photo of Lucy and Larry. I was watching for awhile today, and was impressed with how nice the nest looked. I with it had sound.
Have a Happy Easter! Lets hope we don’t see the bunny in any eagles nest! LOL
Hello from MN,
I was going to print a copy of the April Hatch List and a new cam list. When I attempted, I didn’t get the same type of print out as last month. I ended up with partial printings in very small print. Hard copy is a little easier for me to follow right now.
Finally went in for my wrist today. I have medications, splnt wrist brace and received a shot of medication to the area. I should have my brace on, but I can’t be on the computer. I guess i can just sit back and watch all those wonderful hatchlings.
I guess I am not the only one who has a hard time watching the little ones fail in their adventure of life. After watching Norfolk last year, I wasn’t sure I wanted to come back. However, those two Iowa nests are hard not to enjoy. I would ike to make a trip down to both of them when the eaglets get larger.
Thanks again for keeping us updated. You certainly have helped me out this year and I can not tell you how much I appreciate it. My husband just came in and told me to get off the computer so I don’t injure the wrist more.
We both can look forward to next week.
Hi, sorry I didn’t reply sooner, I was looking for alternative ways to help print the calendar. I didn’t find much. Only to perhaps shorten the date range that is being printed with the “Print Range” option to change the dates just below the preview when you select Print. Or perhaps another browser. I had thought I could send you a link to the full size calendar, but did not find a good way to do that.
I’m so glad you are getting some relief with your wrist! I had to giggle at your husband telling you to get off the computer – you got a keeper there! Please take good care and we will hope for successful hatch stories at all the nests and that mother nature doesn’t throw any curve balls.
Thanks again for the nice words and will see you at the nests! (electronically! lol)
Second pip reported at 6:48 CST at Decorah nest site.
Good evening or good early morning Twizzkid!
Thank you for all the updates – you do a wonderful job of helping us eagleholics out. We have so many bobbleheads to watch and not enough time. I hope we have great success witht he remaining 28 eggs. According to my count we lost seven chicks and one egg. It is amazing what we learn when we are able to watch and monitor what is going on. I watch Decorah a good portion of the day.
You have a wonderful site and I have been telling many people about it. Thanks again! My wrist is feeling better, but I have been trying to stay away from the computer and checking in our your site instead.
Lets have a great week and hope we are blessed by many for eaglets.
Hi Sandy! I’m glad your wrist is feeling better. And thanks again for the nice words. It’s really nice to know that you are sharing the site with others. I hope they find it helpful too! There sure is a lot going on at all the nests. I also watch Decorah quite a bit, it was my launch into eagleholic status last year LOL. And it launched my curiousity to learn everything I could about Bald Eagles and eventually to build this site. I am learning so much by seeing the similarities and differences at all the nests, I remain fascinated! Yes, here’s hoping for a great Eagle-week! Twizzkid
I just wanted to say thank you for keeping us all up to date!!! I have tenonitis in my wirst and it is making checking all the cams a little too much work. Your site keeps me up to date and wrist a little less painful.. Thank You. Let there be many more eaglets for our enjoyment!
Hi Sandy, thank you so much for your kind words. It makes me very happy to know that you enjoy the site and even more so, if it lessens your tendonitis pain a little (ouch). I am really enjoying the experience of learning a little about each of the pairs. They are all so special!
I will try to find some time to check out my lists versus the ones you have listed. If I find some you don’t have, I will be sure to let you know.
The old BB nest does have a pair of eagles using it. It was also used last year. I will be watching to see how many hatch. The parents have been on the nest for at least the last two weeks.
We are very lucky to find more nests than others will find. There are four within twenty five miles of home. I know of at least four more.
Thank you for directing me here from the MN Bound Eagle Cam. When you gave me the into on Monday, I didn’t get a change to check it out right away. I love the Hatch Watch. I even found a couple cams I didn’t know about. I will check out my list and give you any I have that you have not noted. I too enjoy checking out other nests and eagles to see the difference.
FYI, When I was in Hutchinson today, I saw one of the eagles from the MN Bound Nest out and about. I also two other eagles using the original nest set up by Broadband.
i find it interesting that MN has more bald eagles in the lower 48 states, but to the best of my knowledge only one cam. Just doesn’t seem right.
Hi! Thanks for the nice words. I’m glad you are finding it useful (kinda makes my day when someone does ) I would love to know of any cams you find that aren’t on the list, thanks! Maybe there are some others in MN that we just haven’t found yet! I agree it seems there should be more. That is so exciting that you saw the eagles today! It would be cool if BB could put a cam on the old nest too, if there are eagles using it.
