    Amazing Eagle Cam

    I have been watching this eagle cam for about a week and just wanted to share.

    The nest is in the Norfolk Botanical Garden in Norfolk VA, there are 3 eggs which should hatch mid March.

    Hope you enjoy watching these majestic birds as much as I do!

    Re: Amazing Eagle Cam

    We live in Williamsburg and they set up the Eaglecam each year, there is an update each night on the local news and when the eagles hatch we get additional coverage. One year one of the eaglets had some wrong, they went up, retrieved it, fixed up whatever and put it back. We have a significant number of eagle nests in the area. I think there is one in an upscale community that "owns" a couple of acres of prime, riverfront land. Jamestown Island has 6-8 nests. In our development we have one that we see fishing once in a while.

    The camera is down this morning, hopefully will be up and running soon. I have to say the quality of the video feed is excellent. The eagles are coming back in Indiana too, but not near our home.

    Re: Amazing Eagle Cam

    Lots of nest activity today - daddy eagle has delivered two fish to the nest in anticipation of the hatching. I think tomorrow (Sunday) we may get a glimpse of a baby eaglet!

    Re: Amazing Eagle Cam

    Momma eagle was hit by a jet landing in Norfolk yesterday.
    The nest is now empty.
    From the NBG blog:

    NORFOLK, VA (April 27, 2011) The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF) has confirmed that the female of the eagle pair nesting at Norfolk Botanical Garden was killed by an airplane strike yesterday morning. VDGIF wildlife biologists, acting on concerns that the adult male will not be able to provide sufficient food for the three five-week-old eaglets, determined that the birds should be removed from the nest. While the male may be able to meet the needs of the chicks in the near term, the amount of food they will require as they grow will increase exponentially, likely exceeding the hunting capacity of even the most capable provider.

    A number of options were considered as the VDGIF assessed the situation, including no intervention, providing supplemental food for the chicks, or separating them for placement in the nests of other eagles. Ultimately, the biologists and agency eagle expert determined that the most appropriate response would be to remove the eaglets and transport them to The Wildlife Center of Virginia (WCV). There the birds can be reared in specialized facilities and cared for by trained, permitted eagle rehabilitators until they are old enough to be released back into the wild.
