Lake Washington, Washington - Bald Eagle Cam

link to cam: http://wdfw.wa.gov/wildwatch/eaglecam/video_lw.html

If you have trouble viewing the cam, make sure you have Windows Media Player on your computer.

This cam is now streaming, with night vision! And it was repositioned in 2009 so there is a better look into the nest bowl.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife posted the following in 2008 about this cam:
“This year we have retired the Puget Sound EagleCam and replaced it with the Lake Washington EagleCam. Located in a 100 foot tall Douglas fir tree, the bald eagle pair have been actively building their nest and should be able to be observed increasingly as the mating season and pair-bonding is upon us. This bald eagle cam was installed with a landowner’s invitation and cooperation and with the hope to share the unique views and interactions of a dramatically situated bald eagle nest.”
Lake Washington is in the northwest corner of Washington state, not really all that far from Seattle.

This cam was new in 2008, and there were two chicks that year, one of which fledged successfully and the other which died of unknown causes when it was 8-1/2 weeks old (the cam was refresh-only the first year, making it harder to see what was happening in the nest). They successfully raised and fledged two chicks in 2009.

Based on previous experience, look for eggs in mid-March, chicks in late April, and fledging in mid July.

2009-2010 Season:

  • adults return: seen October 4
  • egg(s) laid: March 16, ~7:30 pm (angle of the cam makes it impossible to see into the nest bowl to see if there are more eggs)
  • hatched: seen April 22, 7:22 am (37 days): seen April 24, 7:45 am (~36 days, assuming 3 days between eggs)
  • fledged: ~July 13 (82 days); ~July 14 (81 days)
  • last seen: August 8, 11:00 am
