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.

2010 Season:

  • adults return: The pair has been visiting the nest regularly throughout the fall, leading us to hope they will nest in 2010

Thank you, JudyB,
Beautiful, all your hard work, just beautiful
:clap2: Smile

Grin Good morning Maine Coasters,

Here's a video from Maine coast yesterday, 16 Jan 2010. I have to hurry because it will soon be light on the nest again this morning. All in all, I saw 3 fly-ins yesterday. Am pondering if they were all 3 of the same eagle and/or were they all 3 female eagles. Very interesting....

She spent most of her time hunkered down in the nest bowl for a good fit.

Natural light on the nest was darker so I lightened these s'caps for eagle visability. :blink:
After this female flew off the nest, the morning water turned almost red. Awesome sight. :dry:

Well Mom brought in large prey to the nest this morning; huge meal.

She has been in the nest now for 1.5 hours eating and looking around. Will post some scaps when I review the tape! There was a fly by of ravens I think too probably eyeing up the meal themselves.

Ma was just calling and Dad responded from the area.

No visual of Dad yet since I logged on this morning.

Too funny; a very brave visitor joins Ma; obviously looking for a handout; Ma ignored him for a bit then flew out of the nest with the rest of her meal. The visitor scooboo dooed about the nest then left shortly afterward!

Then Ma returns to nest with her meal too funny Titter

Here is a scap of the large prey that was brought to the nest this morning by Ma.
She spent a long time enjoying this meal :thumrt:

Awesome coverage of the nest, Debs :!: Thank you. Grin

Sometimes wonder if the "Raven" is looking for a handout or if it's really trying to make a rescue. Oh well, so it goes with nature. 8O Good to see that these eagles are well fed. Smile
