Live Eagle Cam offers online look at nests

 Biologist shares his love of majestic birds via web
 

David Hancock, who has been studying bald eagles for over 50 years, is continuing to reach out to the world in a tech-savvy way. And right now might just be the most exciting time to "tune in" all year.

Hancock initiated his Live Eagle Cam project about six years ago when he installed a camera in a tree in Sidney, outside of Victoria, that held refuge to a young eagle pair.


Now there are four more nest locations being monitored by cameras in the Lower Mainland, two of which are in South Delta, a hotspot for eagle families, according to the veteran biologist.

"I always say from a world perspective, Vancouver is the eagle capital of the world, but when you get down to it, Delta has more nests than anybody," said Hancock, founder of the non-profit Hancock Wildlife Foundation.

And since the five nests all currently bear eggs, it feels like Christmas for Hancock and other avid eagle observers, especially considering the lack of food along the West Coast for the birds.
