Happy Day . . .

American Eagle Foundation Bald Eagle Nest Cam



AEF and USNA invites anyone to post photos and videos provided by these high definition cams.

Since these photos can be copied and duplicated over and over,

we request that when you post these up to Facebook, IG, Websites, Blogs,

or another social media location,

the following information be included at the end of your photo/video caption:

We appreciate your cooperation!


After "Mr. President" and "The First Lady" raised one eaglet successfully in 2015,

the 501(c)3 American Eagle Foundation partnered with the National Arboretum

to install and stream two high definition video cameras from the top of the nest tree.

The cameras are powered completely by a large mobile solar array

that was designed and built by Alfred State College, SUNY College of Technology

and was partially funded by the Department of Energy and Environment.

"The First Lady" laid her first egg of 2016 on February 10th,

and laid her second egg on February 14th early in the morning.

Both parents will carefully incubate the eggs,

and both eggs are expected to hatch about 35 days after being laid.


If you want a treat,

try to hook up to the Washington DC life cams

of "Mr President" and "First Lady" and their fledglings.

Joan, of

mentioned this and had a link to them in a recent post.

OI have been in awe since.

Five minutes ago 3.26.16, when I peeked in

mom and dad were no where to be seen and there were those two little ones all alone.

So if course I had to watch over them, "mothering" as I am.

Soon, one Eagle flew back in, then the other,

so I quickly came over to Blogsy to do a post,

to let you know, so hopefully you can go watch too.

Linking with Eileen for Saturday's Critters


Happy Easter

thank you for your friendship

"its the little things"

I've got a few friends that have been watching it, and I finally tuned in this week to see what I was missing -- It's better than a lot of shows that are on, and the pictures really are amazing. It's truly "catnip" tv, isn't it? :-)

Happy Easter Mother Eagle!

We used to have a bird sanctuary and they had two eagles there that needed rehab. It was so neat to watch them. We would go often. I was always taken with how big they were and how strong and commanding their stature was easy to see why they were chosen as a symbol of our country!

Kim said...

oops...I meant we used to have a bird sanctuary nearby. I did not have a bird sanctuary! Can you imagine that? Ha!!

Very cool. A couple of years ago Dennis found an online site with a webcam that showed an eagle family in real time, like this one. We enjoyed watching the majestic birds up close. xo
