Minnesota Bound Bald Eagle Cam

The following posted by JudyB:

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.

A new cam & IR light was installed just before dusk on Nov.15th from a cherry picker. Many thanks to BroadBandCorp for the new cam, IR light & installation. As always, thank you to the cam operator. The photographer's pics from the ground will be posted on MNB blog. Link is below. The MNB camera is 100% powered by solar energy.

From eagleholic/twizzkid today ~~

MN Bound cam is live! And we are on egg watch! Grin

March 6, 2014 —

After numerous technical difficulties, primarily related to the severe cold weather, the MN Bound cam (Harmon’s nest – although they have made the decision that they will not continue naming the eagles) is up and running! Last year, their first egg was laid March 9, so getting close! So happy to see this cam up and running!!
