Harrison Bay Eagle Cam 2013
The Harrison Bay Eagle Cam is up and running at www.harrisonbayeaglecam.org and we are hoping for a successful nesting season this year. As you may or may not know, Elliott and Eloise built a second nest on the golf course this summer and as of yet have not decided which nest they are going to use this season. The footage that is being streamed on the website is from the original nest which at the current time is the only cameras we can broadcast. The cameras in the new nest, used to take the photo above, require a greater upload capacity than we currently have but once our cable internet gets installed we will be able to broadcast both nests if needed.
The Eagle Cam project has been getting some good publicity as of late and the site has been regularly visited by interested viewers from around the world. Here is a link to a nice article by Richard Simms of Nooga.com. http://www.nooga.com/159718/harrison-bay-eagle-cam-returns/ The photos are by our good friend and official Harrison Bay Eagle Cam photographer Bret Douglas.
Since Eloise laid her eggs on February 11th and 14th of last year and they have been actively rearranging the nests we are expecting and hoping to have some eggs laid rather soon. Just waiting to see which nest they decide is the proper one for this year.
