Eagle cam!

January 26, 2011 • 4:19 pm

Okay, there’s a live eagle cam at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens in Virginia, and it’s trained on a nest where a gorgeous pair of bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) may soon be raising a brood.

I don’t see any eggs yet, but a daily slideshow definitely shows eagles in the nest.  Here’s one of 23 images from today (Jan. 26):

Alert readers: post below immediately if you see the eagles.

  1. Isn’t the Bald-Eagle a true Eagle? I thought Eagles were of the genus Aquila?
    Like the greatest Eagle of all, the Wedgie (Aquila Audax)!

  2. I watched the nest (sans eagles) for a while earlier today and it was definitely live, with good image quality. There was a squirrel nomming something right by the nest.

  3. Tried! Couldn’t connect to the live stream… (*gakk-ari*! … disappointment!) Of course, at this hour in the morning, it’s night in Virgina–too dark to see anything, I’m sure.

  4. Had a Bald Eagle that lived somewhere near my house. Flew right over my head about 20 feet above me one time; really startled me, those birds are big!
