Here’s just a recap of recent news from many of the eaglecam nests:
Alcoa Davenport: The eagles have decided to build a new nest in the same tree, but not where the cams currently are. The Alcoa folks have scouted out the situation and plan to install a new camera where the new nest is.
Lots of nestorations happening at our earliest egg watch nests! Both the Northeast Florida and Southwest Florida nests as well as the Berry College nest in Georgia have been really active! Last year eggs arrived on Nov 16, Dec 19 and January 7 respectively for those nests.
The eagles4kids nest is active with lots of visits by female eagle Blair and a male currently identified as “NM” (for New Male) – he will get a name at some point.
The ETSU cams got some extra funding that is going toward installing an additional camera to one of the two nests. As of yesterday they were reporting that cam work is underway and the new IR system was installed.
The Miles City cam provided some updated info: The nest was destroyed when a thunderstorm knocked the nest out of the tree in July. The cams are still there and if the eagles return to rebuild in the same place they will turn on streaming again
RF Eaglecam: A few days ago they noted that they will be bringing the camera back online later this Fall
The RRP supported Ft St Vrain nest got some beautiful new cams, but they are experiencing some bandwidth problems and are offline for now. They have checked to make sure that the problem isn’t with the new equipment, so hopefully all will get resolved and we will have a view of the cam again.
At the Harrison Bay eaglecam, it looks like we have new female eagle this year. For the past few years, we had eagle pair Elliot and Eloise. Unfortunately Eloise has not been seen since mid September when a new female, now named Eliza arrived and has remained. Reports are the both Elliot and Eliza have been starting a few nestorations.
At the Hancock Wildlife eaglecams, lots of nestorations being reported at the Delta nest and at White Rock lots of reports of Mom White Rock and an unconfirmed report of Dad being seen.
The Big Bear nest has been reporting lots of visits from a young adult eagle. Will this be a first nesting season for this young one?
Upper Mississippi eaglecam has plans to upgrade the equipment before the season starts.
