Thanks for setting up the thread, Debs!

Link to the Cam: http://www.mnbound.com/live-eagle-cam/

2012 was the first year I became aware of this cam, although MN Bound did place a cam at different location attempting to view the nest last year; I haven't seen any reports on the success of the nest in 2011. The folks running the cam believe there was a new male in 2012, probably young as he had a black spot on his head, and initially had a band on one leg, though that apparently fell off (the spot remained constant). The pair laid two eggs, but sadly the younger eaglet (named Kirby) fell from the nest when he was 16 days old and did not survive; it appeared that he was standing on one end of a piece of skin, and when the adult moved the skin, he was tossed up to the edge of the nest.

The older eaglet, named Harmon, became stuck in the nest when he was a little over 3 weeks old; he was removed from the nest the afternoon of May 4 and taken to rehab to be cleaned and checked out (there were some puncture wounds (from sticks in the nest?) - and maggots), and fed; there were no serious injuries, so he was returned to the nest the afternoon of May 6, along with a supply of fish heads and tails. He was alone that night, and as a second night approached, the team made plans to remove him - when the adults suddenly appeared on the nest. The reunion was amazing - I've been watching eagles for a long time - and seeing both adults trying to feed him at the same time, and then Mom preening him - it was one of the most touching scenes I've ever witnessed.

Based past experience for this pair, look for eggs in early March, chicks in mid-April, and fledging in late June or early July.

Welcome

Welcome to our new 2013 thread devoted to the beautiful & majestic MN Bound pair Wub

It will likely take awhile to get the introduction completed but I did want to get this thread open for business today.

Here is the link to the 2012 Season for resource information on this amazing family.

Sounds like Broadband is planning on cam upgrades over the course of the next 12 months as outlined below:

Upgrades planned

Replace old solar panels with newer more efficient ones as well as possibly adding additional panels at different angles to capture better sun for a longer period of time throughout the day.

Additional camera on another branch to provide a greater view of the area.

Additional battery storage for longer run time during bad weather and night.

Upgrade to the processor in the Server that processes the stream to provide a higher resolution and more stable platform.

Those are the first items we will be tasking ourselves with over the next 12 months.

Again, thank you for viewing and sharing this great outdoor experience!

Some news from Minnesota Bound!

Minnesota Bound Live Eagles

Brrrr its been cold! it was -13 degrees here the other morning and hasn't warmed up much since then. We have 4 new solar panels that were installed about a month ago. They have better charging capacity and better collection ability as well we have a new set of higher grade batteries that will hold more juice and hold it longer. We are hoping power will not be an issue this year.

The new camera has been installed in a new mount that hangs between branches in an effort to maintain maximum perching branches. Do to the mounting we may see a little more wiggle than before but it's all trial and error so lets hope for the best.

All we are waiting on is the weather to warm up so that we can connect all the wiring on the ground. We are shooting for bringing the camera live the first week or two in February. Hopefully sooner than later. We will announce it here on Facebook when we go live.

Here is an early welcome to the 2013 Minnesota Bound Eagle cam
