Maine Bald Eagle Nest 2B Observations, ScreenShots & Video

Bald Eagle Cam provided by BioDivisity Research Institute and located in Maine.

Direct from BRI - http://www.briloon.org/oae/webcams/eaglecam2

Via UStream - http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nextera-maine-eaglecam-2

Link to view cam in different Ustream cam window sizes:
http://www.window-on-wildlife.com/cam/maine_cam_links.htm; there are also links there for viewing both Maine cams on one page (Note: the big triangle in the middle sometimes takes you to the regular UStream page - if that happens, use the little triangle under the viewing window)

2011 Timeline
  • Cam On:  April 15
  • Unfortunately the eagles did not have any eggs while we were watching in 2011

2012 Timeline
  • Cam On:  December 21, 2011


more info soon

Note (December 28 2011):  This is the third eagle cam to be streamed by BRI, which is why we initially called it Nest 3 - but because there are only two cams at present (the original Nest 2 tree fell down in November 2010, fortunately after the eaglets had fledged and while the adults were away), and it's listed as NextEra Maine EagleCam 2 on Ustream and referred to as EagleCam 2 by BRI, we are now calling it Eaglecam 2B.  Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks JudyB for setting up a new thread.  thumbsup1

Seems a bit late to start nesting in Maine but I guess anything goes with our wacky Maine eagles. puzzled2 laughinghard
I know I didn't see any eggs earlier but....

Original post: Today at 03:07:06 PM
The third BRI Eagle Cam, Cam 3, which is not on Jack and Jill's nest, is now up on the BRI website.  It is on the page that used to contain the Cam 2 cams (Jack and Jill's cams), and it still reads Cam 2.

Link to the live cam:

Here is a view posted on the Cam 2 Ning page by CLC of an eagle on the nest at the third cam site (a new site).

About 2:30 pm:

Original post Today at 03:41:53 PM
3:24 pm  Eagle onto the nest in lower left corner, with a fish:

Eagle proceeded to move itself and the fish all over the nest, leaving it at 11 o'clock.  Settled down on the nest, briefly, then on the move again.

3:26 pm  Eagle and the fish at 11 o'clock:


3:34 pm  Back lying (I think, hard to tell with this view (too far away and needs some angle to give it depth perception.) on the nest.  Can't tell if there's a bowl or not.  It looks flattened in this view.

Thanks, JudyB, I've moved my posts from the Cam 2 thread to here.

I didn't see any eggs either today, but did get a feel for the eagles a bit.  The first one was moving all over the nest like it didn't know what to do with the fish it brought in.  

There was a nest exchange around 6:15 pm, I'll check on that time later in my caps.

The second one in kept getting up nd rearranging the nest material like there were phantom eggs in the nest rolleyes2

There must be something in the water in Maine puzzled2 eek! shrug

Thanks for your posts!  I'm afraid I don't have times for these, but they were taken between 6 pm and now:





Adult (Mom?) just got up, dug around a bit, and nestled in.  I did not see any eggs when she was off the nest - am curious what will be there in the morning.

10:24 pm  Eagle on the nest, got up, wandered over and sniffed at the fish:


Then backed up to the back rim edge to take care of business:


10:25 pm  And then went back to the center of the nest to wiggle down:


10:33 pm:


ALL THIS and there are no eggs on the nest.

Maybe the fish is there because by MORNING? there will be puzzled2 shrug

Mornin' Kai  bigsmile
I remember our original Mom at Maine 1 used to come in and sit overnight before laying the eggs and, from what
I have read, I believe it isn't at all unusual for them to "practice" incubation.
Stay tuned!
