Nest Update

2/11/18:
The microwave transmitter/receiver that we've used for the life of the Eagle Cam is not working and we're having issues replacing the old equipment. We will continue to work at repairing it to bring the cam online, but we are also speaking with a streaming video specialist to explore our options for migrating to video, now that we have fiber optic internet at the Visitor Center. This is a longer process but a better long-term solution.

Nest Update

2/18/18:
We've found replacement equipment, and we now have a live feed from the nest. We're working to get the feed on the website (with our new web host). What we've seen is that it appears the eagles may be eating some meals at the nest, but it doesn't look like they're actively nesting there.

Nest Update

2/24/18:
We've restored service at the Eagle Cam nest. We have seen at least one visit by an adult eagle, but the volunteers watching the cam report little action. We also believe it is probably too late for eggs to be laid this season.

Look who is nesting at the Blackwater Eagles nest!
"Thanks to John Lowery for sharing this neat photo from our Eagle (Owl) Cam. The female owl has been showing behavior over the last few days that seems to indicate an egg, but then she stands up and no egg. We're just waiting for an egg sighting. You can see the cams at: https://www.friendsofblackwater.org/camhtm2.html"
