Exciting News from the American Eagle Foundation!
Beginning October 1, 2013, the AEF will be video streaming a wild Bald Eagle nest live from Northeast Florida. The stars of this new virtual reality show are Romeo and Juliet – a pair of Bald Eagles that have been occupants of their huge nest for many years. The nest can be seen in the photos below, and you can access links to a page with more information, as well as links to the video streams, by going to our website, WWW.EAGLES.ORG.
For the past 5 years, careful and meticulous documentation has been made regarding behaviors of this adult eagle pair, including the exact dates they return to the nest from their off-season travels, nest preparation, mating, egg laying, incubation, hatching, and the fledging of the eaglets.
Two high-definition video cameras have been installed to provide the best “up close and personal” viewing for the people who visit our website—without ever once disturbing the daily activities of the eagles or their babies. One camera is in the actual nesting tree, and can be zoomed in for intimate details. The other camera was installed in another tree (about 110 feet from the nest tree) to give a wide angle view of the entire nest tree canopy, allowing viewers to see the adult eagles fly in and out of the nest, the youngsters ‘wingerizing’ and taking their first flights, and attempting their initial landings.
The video cam channels, along with a Chat feature, can be accessed by following the links from our website, WWW.EAGLES.ORG.
What better way for our viewers – adults and children – to learn about and appreciate the USA’s amazing National Symbol, the Bald Eagle!
