Red-tailed Hawk Cam - Portland, OR

Pictures here: CLICK
Live Streaming video here: CLICK

Raptor Cam is a live web cam looking down upon a nest of Red-tail Hawks outside a downtown office building in Portland.

To minimize disturbance of the nest, the location isn't publicly broadcast.

Raptor Cam is made possible through a partnership between KGW and the Audubon Society of Portland.

Raptor Cam premiered in 2007 with a still-image web cam. In 2008, through a generous donation by an anonymous Audubon Society donor, the camera was upgraded to live full-motion video. In 2009, we added a Raptor Cam blog, authored by Bob Sallinger of the Audubon Society, providing frequent updates of the developments in the nest and answering our users' questions.

This year, Raptor Cam features a new Flash-streaming video player that enables users to view the live video feed in full-screen mode.

The cam is back online!



Last year, two eggs hatched and both chicks (male & female) fledged. The female juvenile was found injured in June. She had a serious infection and a decision was made to euthanize her on July 11. A large cavity was created by the trichamoniasis infection.

As previously mentioned, trich creates a hard white plaque. In the case of the raptor cap bird, the plaque extended from the roof of the mouth all the way up into the right eye. We knew from x-rays that there was at least some bone damage. We were hopeful because the infection was subsiding and she was self-feeding and putting on lots of weight. However, by yesterday, the medications had worked to the point where Dr. Sheaffer could get a good look up into the cavity created by the infection. Without going into too much graphic detail, there was very extensive damage--significant amounts of dead bone and tissue----the jaw and upper mandible basically were coming apart. That type of damage makes a a reasonably successful life in captivity or the wild impossible.



The infection was probably caused by eating an infected pigeon. Itís unknown whether or not her brother shared the pigeon and became infected. Let's hope for better luck this year!
