Multipurpose Nest, Multipurpose Social Media Names

Last modified date

As you may know, we’ve already changed the domain for this website to landingsbirdcam.com to reflect the fact that even though this is a Bald Eagle’s Nest, it’s become a Great Horned Owl’s nest, and we’re told that it may later become an eagle’s nest again. So we are changing our Facebook account from Savannah-Eagle-Cam-At-The-Landing to the more generic and likely to be accurate www.facebook.com/LandingsBirdCam.

Now we’ve never done this before, and we’ve already got a small audience of hundreds of followers and thousands of views that we don’t want to lose. So later today we’re going to merge the old and the new and the old will disappear. If you’ve followed or liked our Facebook page you will automatically follow our new one. Our old Facebook posts will disappear, but we’ve saved a pdf and will share that.

Our Twitter handle will also change, but we’ll post that info a bit later. By the way, in case you haven’t noticed, there are links to our Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages at the bottom of this and every page on our site.

And here’s a short video from this morning. Mom snaps at an intruder, then repositions herself on the eggs. She does this a lot, and we’d be interested to know if she’s turning the eggs? Do you happen to know whether that’s what she’s doing? Post a comment! [update – one of our experts following the site has answered – click on comment below the post!]

  1. This is quite a treat!

    I was able to catch her fly from the nest around 5:45am EST, she was gone for about 6 minutes and returned.

    She seems to be doing some sort of nesting screech, every 10 second(ish) interval. And yes she is turning the eggs.

    • Yes, I wonder if that’s her asking Dad to bring her food? She dropped out of the nest 1/20 at about 7:00 for 5 minutes or so, making the same call. If she was hunting, I’m sure she wouldn’t be making any noise. Still haven’t seen Dad, though…

  2. Yes, she appears to be turning the eggs. She will do this every few hours in order to keep the heat evenly distributed and to keep the developing owlet from sticking to the inside of the shell.
