Hancock Wildlife Foundation is so pleased to announce the long held association with the famous Turtle Bay, Redding, California eagles by including their eagle nest web cam in the Associated Cameras section on the Live Cameras page.
Some of you will recall that in 2007 Caltrans (California dept. of highways) had tried to discourage the eagles (Liberty and Patriot) from nesting so near a planned highway project by placing a large cone in their nest, but the eagles were not easily discouraged and tried in vain to remove the cone. It was thanks to a large grassroots movement, headed by Terri Lhuillier, that created enough publicity in favor of the eagles that the cone was eventually removed.
A camera was later placed in the nest and Hancock Wildlife Foundation happily provided the viewers a discussion thread in the HWF forum so that the scientific research could be documented. Now, eight years later, the link to the camera appears on the HWF camera selection page in order that more eagle lovers can learn about Liberty and her new mate Spirit. Liberty has just laid her third egg, as she has done in previous years, and we wish her and Spirit success.
