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.
Check out a few of these bald eagle nest cams:
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.
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.
Mr. President and First Lady reign over a hillside azalea garden in the National Arboretum.
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.
Keep a journal and draw or record what you see in each nest.
Although the bald eagle has made a remarkable comeback, it is important to keep trash—such as fishing wire and hooks, tires, and household garbage—off the land and out of local waterways. Pollution is a real threat for the bald eagle and other species. Encourage your family, classmates, and friends to join a local clean-up effort.
