Humboldt Wildlife Care Center's eagle cam was funded by a grant from Sequoia Park Zoo (www.sequoiaparkzoo.net). and installed in collaboration with Dr. Peter Sharpe of the Institute for Wildlife Studies (www.iws.org) and canopy ecologist Jim Campbell-Spickler, who works with Humboldt State University.

HWF would like to thank them all for giving us another look into the lives of these magnificent birds!!! Special thanks again to Dr. Peter Sharpe for his dedication to bald eagles!!

The Humboldt Bay eagles, known only as Mr. and Mrs. HBE, are approximately 13 years old have been nesting together since 2006. They have successfully raised at least eight eaglets.

This is the second year for this cam. Canopy ecologist Jim Spickler said the tree, which is a Douglas Fir, is mostly dead above the nest, which forced him to hang the original camera at a slightly crooked angle in order to fully view the birds. Now that he knows how the nest is situated, next year the live feed will be better. He doesn't think this nest will last more than another few years. Its getting heavy...and Douglas Fir rots quickly in this climate. The nest is 95 to 100 feet up in this tree. This pair's first nest is quite close in a Redwood. It has been there for at least 7 years and this "new" nest has been here for 4 years.

According to The Humboldt Wildlife Care Center, this is the first pair of eagles roosting on Humboldt Bay in decades.

The nest is on Humboldt Bay, but the Wildlife Care Center is keeping the exact location secret in order to protect the birds.

New cameras have been installed for the 2013-2014 nesting season including a PTZ. See the link in post above.

I went to see if the cam was streaming. I am delighted that it is. No one home when I checked, but the eagles have been heard.

The long grass visible in the s'cap two posts above is gone but not too much else appears to be going on here in this nest yet. However when I tuned in to the cam today I saw a glorious sight!! One of the parents was perched with the most beautiful backdrop behind it!! Wub
