This nest has streaming video. The camera is now moved to provide a better view than last year.

"Duke Farms is a 2,700-acre estate in Hillsborough, New Jersey, and is owned and supported by the Duke Farms Foundation. The mission of Duke Farms is to be a model of environmental stewardship in the 21st Century and inspire visitors to become informed stewards of the land. This Eagle Cam was installed to provide researchers with an opportunity to monitor a pair of nesting Bald Eagles without any disturbance to the birds. It is being shared with the public to provide viewers with a glimpse of wildlife in its natural environment." ( 2009 Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. All rights reserved.)

2009 was the first year we watched this pair, and the site doesn't provide any history on them. They successfully raised and fledged three chicks in 2009, with both parents sometimes feeding at the same time from different areas of the nest, making it easier for the smallest to get a share. The pair laid two eggs in 2010, and both fledged successfully.

2014 Season - Because of the eagles relocating, it was very difficult to get a good view at times once the leaves filled in.:

  • eggs laid: February 17, 3:54 pm; February 20, about 2 pm; February 23, 4:46 pm

  • hatched: -- The first and second hatch were both on March 29th---the third hatch was on April 1st

  • branching

  • fledged: -- It is assumed that all three eaglets fledged in June -- the cam was not available.

  • last seen:

    2012-2013 Season Recap:

    • eggs laid: #1: February 14, 2013, afternoon; #2 February 17, 2013
    • hatched: They think they both may have hatched on or close to the March 24, 2013, hawk attack.

      ---------------------------------------------

      As part of the Bald Eagle Monitoring Program, wildlife biologists collect data on young Bald Eagles that are approximately 6 weeks of age. Experts take measurements, determine gender, examine the birds for overall health, take blood samples, etc. This information helps us to understand the health of the eagles, and to better understand their habitat needs with the goal of increasing their survival rates. After the health assessment, a lightweight band is applied around each leg. One band is a federal band (silver), and the other is a New Jersey (green). These bands identify eagles should they be found, helping biologists understand migration and foraging patterns as well as track longevity. Eagles are sensitive to human interaction, so timing is crucial and the exercise is performed as quickly and with as much caution as possible, as led by the expert wildlife biologists.

New repositioned cam is currently up and running.
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/eagle-cam


Ustream Update
10/7/2013
The eagle camera is now running, the camera has been relocated to the new nest tree and is now much closer (IR and audio are still not an option as of this time due to the distance and unique site conditions). The new nest is now 80ft off the ground and sits in a cluster of branches coming off a large sycamore tree. Adults have been seen in then est in the early morning hours mending the nest. The large white object in the nest is a turtle shell likely left over from a meal in the summer for the chicks. Banding will possibly take place as well now that the nest tree has been climbed and studied.
