Maine Coast - Bald Eagle Cam

This is a streaming cam with sound and the potential for night vision, although that won't be turned on until the eagles are spending nights in the nest.

The cam is located in coastal Hancock County, and the eagles have nested at this site since 1995 and raised 20 offspring, making them one of the most successful pairs in Maine. This is a beautiful nest on the coast of Maine.

They fledged two eaglets in 2006, but had tragedy in 2007 - the weather was brutal right after the chicks hatched and they lost them. They mated and spent time at the nest in 2008 and 2009, but did not lay any eggs (taking a year or even two off after a nest failure is apparently fairly common)

Based on past experience, look for eggs in the first half of March, chicks in mid-April, and fledging in early July.

2011 Season:

  • eggs laid: Mar 24, 1:06 pm; Mar 27, 4:58 pm
  • sad news: not completely sure what happened, but there was a bad storm shortly after the eggs were laid, and the female was away for a couple of days; when she returned she didn't resume incubating, and the nest was eventually left untended, and subsequently failed; there might also have been a third eagle in the area, which might have contributed to the stress on the nest

Eagle story..Sitting eagle
Roadkill oldest bald eagle ever found..
32-year-old bird oldest documented specimen

Wednesday, November 10, 2010 1:21pm
The bald eagle found on a New Brunswick highway this year turned out to be the oldest documented specimen of its kind. The bird was hit by a car in April, but after biologists investigated a metal tracking ring on its leg they were able to trace it back to a 1977 bird-branding program that took place in Maine. They found the bird was a record-setting 32 years old. Scientists were encouraged by the discovery of the road kill: they say that it indicates that the bald eagles are living longer and healthier lives.

Evening Maine :hello:

Starr :hello: I read that news article too...amazing hey and a very good sign for our bald eagles! When I read the article I thought about Mom Maine here too!

I have tried several times to get this cam and no luck for weeks now and there is no report on the status of the cam on their blog either. In fact their blog is from last April/May.


May you embrace all the "blessings and gifts" that surround you in your life ... let your spirit soar :-)

The cam is back!

And folks on the Maine forum report having seen one eagle so far! There's no night vision - not sure if that's a permanent thing, or if they've turned it off until nesting season - but it's generally looking good!

And while I'm thinking of it - the Maine Bald Eagle Cam Forum is moving. They'll be keeping the old forum as an archive and as a backup in case of issues on the new forum - but most of the activity will now be at

http://www.window-on-wildlife.com

It's a totally new forum, so those who are members will need to register again.

Added:
The cam is now on UStream (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/brieaglcam), and starts with a 30-second ad. I've updated the links in the first post.

Thank you Darlene! I watched for a while early-early morning; heard trills very close to the nest but did not see an eagle.

Off Topic: Have been slightly "under-the-weather" of late but managed to peek in a few times.
