Bald Eagles Nestcam

Northeast Utilities sponsors an eagle cam on the Connecticut River, and Bald Eagles have nested successfully here for several years. Nesting behavior begins in February, when the eagles bring sticks and other material to spruce up the nest. Around 9:10AM EST. today, February 14, both eagles appeared at the nest.

Large birds are cool to look at. Also when they don't know that you are watching them. Clams are a way down my list.......but the lobster cam.

MA Bald Eagle Nest

There is a bit of a lapse between the still photos and the live camera. Today I switched to the live feed when I saw one eagle in the still shot. What luck! Both eagles were in the live shot for 30 seconds or so. There are high winds across the state today, so the nest is swaying.

The web site says that eggs should be laid around mid-March.

Time to check lobster-cam!

First Eagle Egg

Postby veery » Mon Mar 06, 2006 5:05 pm

The female bald eagle spent more time at the nest going into the weekend. This morning (Mon Mar 6), she stayed on the nest continuously for a few hours. The home page has been updated and states that the first egg was laid today!

I never heard of a eagle waiting for a Stork but I've seen humans waiting for omelets.

The only time I've had a chance to check the Maine camera out so far has been after dark so I could not see anything. I think I hear the ocean in the background though.

Just a reminder that the eagles' eggs are due to hatch sometime around April 9.
