Eagles Are In The Area – Oops, Now One’s in the Nest!!

November 23, 2015 by Rick Cunningham

We are continuing to get frequent reports of two bald eagles in the area.

And on Sunday 11/22 one finally visited the nest and spent nearly 10 minutes in the nest. It looked like it was enjoying the view. An alert viewer was captured this video and posted it on our Facebook page. We might just have to zoom out the approach cam to keep the whole bird in the frame. Let’s hope we see more of this magnificent bird!

This is a video from the approach cam – Camera 2.

Hooded Merganser Pair2-1Today the first male Hoodie was seen where it usually shows up first…in the Seawatch area of Delegal Rd. If you make a right on Seawatch and then your next right…the lagoon on the left is where it often shows up first. The lagoons on either side are good for hoodies and as the season goes on..other ducks. The slightly more southern lagoon (on the left) often gets Bufflehead and some other interesting species. Click on the picture on the right – male and female Hooded Mergansers from last year.

Our eagles in 2013

October 24, 2014 by Dot Bambach

Nesting in 2013

Nesting in 2013

Over the summer cameras were installed above the eagle’s nest in a tree on Palmetto #14 where, for the past two years, a pair of bald eagles have nested and fledged one or two eaglets each year. The image on the right shows a parent and a fledgling in 2013. (Click on the image to see it enlarged to full screen, and click a second time to see it full sized – thanks to Patty Frothingham for her great images)

The decision to go forward with the nest cam was based on a 90% probability that the birds would return to the nest again this year. Good odds but not perfect.

Some shots from our 2014 Fledglings

October 5, 2014 by Rick Cunningham

Patty Frothingham got these photos on a gray day in March 2014. She was strapped for time and couldn’t wait for better shots, so they are a little dark. But this gives us a good idea of what we hope to be seeing this coming March. Thanks Patty!

Cameras Set To Go

Cornell Lab of Ornithology was on hand assisting in the installation of our cameras and got some great shots as well as video which he has generously shared with us. Check out all his photos at this Google+ page.

And if you want to know a LOT more about how bird cams work, from conception to planning, to installation, to monitoring and maintenance, you can watch this hour long video of a lecture by Charles on the bird cam project at Cornell. That sounds like a long video to watch, but if you every watch a DVD movie, this is way more interesting than most!
