Wish YOU could get an up-close look at eagle family life? You’re in luck! Many conservation groups run online bald eagle “nest cams”—special video cameras that film active nests around the clock. Here are a few to check out.

Decorah, Iowa
The pair known as Mom and Dad are eagle superstars! Millions of people have tuned in to watch them raise their eaglets over the past 10 years.

Northeastern Florida
This pair, Romeo and Juliet, nest near the coast, 80 feet high in a longleaf pine tree. Their newest chicks, named Spirit and Sky, hatched in December of last year.

Washington, D.C.
Mr. President and First Lady reign over a hillside azalea garden in the National Arboretum.

Juneau, Alaska
An eagle pair has nested on the grounds of a plant nursery and garden here since 2004. In the colder Alaskan climate, their eaglets hatch in early summer and stick around until September.


Rangers: Bald eagles in different places nest at different times of the year. So, if you tune in to one nest cam and find the nest empty or the  camera turned off, try a different one.  –R.R.
