A New Season - A New Archive Method - and we're BUSY!!!

Wildlife News2009 brings with it a whole new way to watch Hancock Wildlife Foundation's eagle nest cameras. Thanks to WildEarth.TV (WE) and the people behind it, we are now streaming to you using Adobe's flash video instead of the Windows Media we used in the past.

WE is just starting to archive our streams in time for the hatchings we hope will take place over the next few days and weeks. You can take a look at the these "Seekpoints" at their Archive page.

At this time those of you viewing via our links here on the HWF site can't directly tag the stream for archives, you'll have to go to the WE site to do that. We're working on a number of ways we can integrate things across the two sites but for now we understand that there are some of you who really want to work with the video.

The synergies between the WE site with its live video software and the HWF site with all our captures and articles is such that we know you'll come back to see and interact here. In fact we're having a banner year for both new members and the activities of the viewing public. In fact we're so busy our server (thank you Hancock House Publishing!!!) is at the limit of what it can serve. We're going to have to upgrade if we are to handle the expected even larger numbers once we have eaglets in the nest. You can help by donating, but your business can also help just by advertising here on our site.

Hancock Wildlife Foundation made the news this time!!  There are a few inaccuracies in this article but who are we to complain with much needed publicity such as this!!


HORNBY ISLAND, B.C. - Three nests of bald eagles in British Columbia that have been streaming live over the Internet for several years could soon have a few new additions after several eggs were laid.

The Hancock Wildlife Foundation, which operates the webcams on Hornby Island, Sydney and Delta says three eggs have already been laid in Sidney, one on Hornby Island and two in Delta.

The foundation launched the Hornby Island camera in 2006, and then set up the Sidney cam in 2007. The Delta cam is the newest.

The hatching of two baby eagles in SIdney two years ago drew worldwide attention, with virtual onlookers helping name the pair.

The Hornby Island egg is expected to hatch around April 26, the three eggs in Sidney could hatch around April 5 and the two Delta eggs could hatch by the end of this month.

The video feeds are on the foundation's website:

Names have been chosen for two eaglets and a third that may hatch soon in a nest at Turtle Bay.

For the first time since the eagles drew attention in late 2007, television viewers participated in polls to name the birds.

“KRCR viewers and readers have worked together to name the newborn eaglets. The winning names in the combined polling results are Freedom, Hope and Spirit,” Record Searchlight marketing director Michelle Martin Streeby said today after the results of both polls were tallied.

Hotel Captain Cook's going to the birds for a good reason

Wildlife News

Anchorage Daily News    


(03/17/09 18:36:51)

We call him Kodi because he came from Kodiak Island. He's a Northwestern crow, one of the stars of Bird TLC's education program. And Saturday night, if you head over to the Hotel Captain Cook, you'll be able to see him doing what he does best -- accepting cash from all donors to help pay for his fellow birds when they are sick and injured. Hand him a bill -- preferably a large one --and he will drop it in the cash jar at his feet. Hand him a worm after that and he will love you forever
