12/20/16: Technical Note
We plan to have Craig Koppie climb the tree and check the nest and equipment (and the raccoon situation) because we've seen a couple eagles checking it out. We're not sure if it's our resident couple or new birds. We also plan to replace our cabling to help reduce the interference with the video signal. We'll keep you posted as to when we hope to be online.

Nest Update

Technical Note
>Craig Koppie climbed the nest tree and checked our cabling and equipment. We still have some electrical interference that we believe is coming from the Visitor Center and degrading the cam image. We're trying to improve the image before we turn on the cam. Thanks for your patience.

Nest Update

1/6/17:
Technical Note
We've been testing the video signal coming from the tree, and we believe the signal interference is not related to something in the Visitor Center (like our new exhibits), which is good news. We're now trying to determine if the problem is related to the new power lines along the Visitor Center road. Thanks for your patience.

Nest Update

1/12/17:
Technical Note
Choptank Electric plans to come out and check their power lines, since their equipment might be
causing the static and degraded image. We hope they'll be able to
identify and fix the problem.


I haven't seen any Eagles on the eagle cam. Only on the Osprey cam...

Nest Update

1/19/17:
Technical Note
We are replacing some of the video equipment on the ground. The image may come and go as we work on the equipment.
Thanks for your patience.
We have not seen any eagle activity at the nest since we've been back online.

Beth - (Nope-we/I haven't seen any Eagles on the camview)

I am not feeling good about the Eagles nesting on the camsite this year.

Nest Update

1/26/17:
We turned on the cam to see if there was any eagle activity at the nest. Even if our old couple moved
onto another nest location, we hoped a new couple might take this nest, but so far we haven't
seen any eagle action.

I guess they had eggs this time last year, but I am never one to give up.
