Decorah Eaglecam

April 28, 2011 • 5:46 am

I proffer this EagleCam (which I’ve mentioned before) with trepidation: while it operates 24/7, has night vision capabilities (so you can see the eagles at night) and sound (so you can hear the eaglets squawking), they aren’t really “our” eagles.  But the nest has three chicks, and they’re a long way from fledging.

The camera is at Decorah, Iowa, and is worth a look.

  1. Decorah is my home town, and has never been much in the news. The Eaglecam seems to have put it on the map.

    My son’s science class here in Indiana visits it regularly, and it seems to be popping up all over the place.

    Maybe they should change the HS football team from Vikings to Eagles.

  2. Wow! Night vision! Did not realize that. I wonder how eagles’ night vision is and if we can see anything besides sleeping eagles. Doesn’t make up for the loss of our poor momma eagle, but I’ll give it a go.

    The reason the Norfolk camera didn’t have sound was that they are too close to the airport, and that’s about all you could hear.

        1. Those are cool but sometimes disturbing. Barn owl chicks will eat their younger siblings if food is scarce — e.g., if it rains too much for the adults to hunt.

          It happened on BBC Springwatch a few years ago — and the eldest chick got named “Hannibal”.
