Blackwater Refuge, Maryland - Bald Eagle Cam

http://www.friendsofblackwater.org/camhtm2.html
The camera has frequently updating still shots, and uses infrared technology to provide "night vision." They hope to have it daily back online around December 10th. It is turned off from 11 pm - 3 am to reduce bandwidth expenses.

The nest is located in the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge on Maryland's Eastern Shore. This is one of the first nests to have a cam, and has been online since 2005. The pair has successfully raised three chicks in 2005, and two each from 2006 through 2010.

Based on past experience, look for eggs in late January, chicks in early March, and fledging in mid to late May.

2010-2011 Season:

  • adults in area: seen on osprey nest September 22
  • cam on:
  • eggs laid: First Egg: January 13; Second Egg: January 16; Third Egg: probably January 19, 5-5:30 pm but first seen January 20
  • hatched: First Egg, February 19, 2:14 pm (37 days); Second Egg, February 21, approx. 7:30 a.m. (36 days); Third Egg, February 24, 11:53 am (36 days)
  • named: 4-22-11: #1 Discovery; #2 Atlantis; #3 Endeavor - in honor of the retiring US space shuttle program.
  • fledged: May 13 (83 days); May 14 (82 days); May 24 (89 days) (dates approximate)
  • last seen: Discovery: June 28; Atlantis: June 30; Endeavor: July 4

I actually caught a brief visit this morning - though they are spending a lot more time on the osprey platform.

They are both visiting the nest - EmtyBelfry from the Maine forum saw them both on the 17th:
