Welcome to BRI’s live eagle webcams. This webcam is sponsored by Brookfield Renewable Energy Group. Video cameras located at two separate eagle nests provide live feed of nesting bald eagles. The cameras feature pan tilt and zoom abilities to enrich our observations. These nests are located in Maine and have a long history of use and nesting success. Activity can occur at the nest at any time. Breeding activity will typically take place between March and July. Join in the conversation in BRI's NING online community and join us on twitter and facebook for updates.
BRI’s first eagle cam, which was installed in February 2006, captured the successful nesting of a pair of eagles in the spring of that year—two young eagles, or nestlings, survived.
Eagles build their nests (which may reach as wide as 10 feet across and weigh up to one-half ton) near the top of large trees, typically close to lakes and rivers. Breeding bald eagles lay eggs once each year, usually in early spring; the eggs, up to three in a clutch, hatch in about 35 days. The young eagles, called nestlings, learn to fly by three months of age, and can be on their own about a month later.
