This is the first bald eagle cam that BRI installed.  
BioDiversity Research Insititute EagleCam (link directly to the Eagle cam page on the website):
http://www.briloon.org/outreach/webcams/eaglecam-1

Beware: the cam comes up for a second, then there can be about half a minute of quite loud advertising which you cannot turn down the volume, so have your finger on the mute button of your speakers if you don't want to hear it.

Link Directly to the Ustream cam page:

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 (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)

Our original forum (http://www.hostingphpbb.com/forum/index.php?mforum=tdbc) disappeared without any warning in early September 2014, with the message that the domain name hostingphpbb.com had expired.  Laura and I had both tried unsuccessfully to purchase a copy of the data there from the company that owned the "free forums" site, but they said they did not offer that service.  We asked about updating the forum (as was requested per an announcement on the site) and did not receive an answer; we tried using the "contact us" form on site, and also emailing the person who had responded to us in the past.

There are some threads about this nest on the Hancock Wildlife Foundation Forum - not our posts (though a couple of us sometimes posted in both places) - but perhaps some of the information we've lost is summarized there.  Here are the links:

(Reserved post updated by JudyB - November 19, 2013)

Pre-Cam
 - According to BioDiversity Research Institute, the eagles nested at this site since 1995 and raised 18 offspring, making them one of the most successful pairs in Maine.

2006 Nesting Season
 - 3 eggs laid, beginning March 6
 - 3 hatched, April 12-18 (dates approximate, due to camera angle
 - the youngest chick died April 28 due to sibling rivalry
 - 2 eaglets fledged

2007 Nesting Season
 - 2 eggs laid, March 5 and 8
 - 1 hatched April 12; the second may have hatched April 15
 - there was a major storm April 16-17; the parents made a valiant effort, but neither chick survived
 - another male challenged the resident male for the nest; we believe the resident male retained control, but as often happens when a nest fails, the eagles did not visit that much during the summer and fall.

2008 Nesting Season
 - the adults were observed mating and working on the nest, but did not lay any eggs

2009 Nesting Season
 - adults were seen in the area, mated, and worked on the nest, but no eggs; there was some speculation that at least one of the pair was new

2010 Nesting Season
 - the female spent several nights on the nest - but yet again, no eggs

2011 Nesting Season
 - 2 eggs laid, March 24 and 27
 - there was a bad storm shortly after the eggs were laid, and the female was away for a couple of days; when she returned, she didn't resume incubating, and the nest was eventually left untended, and subsequently failed

2012 Nesting Season
 - 2 eggs laid, beginning March 26
 - 2 hatched, May 3 and May 4
 - chicks nicknamed Eden and Geddy
 - younger chick died June 8 (There was a major rainstorm June 3-4, delivering 8-9 inches of rain; the adults were not on the nest as much as I'd expect when chicks are under 5 weeks old, but it was apparently warm enough that they came through the storm all right. Unfortunately, food deliveries were few and far between in the wake of the storm, and the older eaglet not only got almost all the food, but also initiated a series of brutal attacks on the younger eaglet. Around 4:33 pm on June 8, the younger eaglet, who had been driven to the edge of the nest during an attack, slipped over the side; BRI reported that the eaglet did not survive.)
 - 1 fledged, July 17 or 20 (some thought the flight on the 17th was just to another branch in the tree, so not a true fledge)
 - last seen on nest, September 26 (almost 21 weeks old, and about 10 weeks after fledging); calls similar to hers heard into November

2013 Nesting Season
 - 2 eggs laid, beginning March 15
 - 2 hatched, April 19 and April 23
 - chicks nicknamed Willow and Moxie
 - younger chick died June 4 (In a replay of last year, there was some bad weather, followed by a drop in food deliveries, which led to the younger eaglet not being fed. There was not the level of attacks that we saw last year, perhaps because the eaglets were a week older than when this happened last year - or perhaps it's a difference in gender or personality. The older eaglet only attacked the younger one when necessary to make sure the younger one did not get any of the food. Moxie tried to be sneaky, and managed to grab and swallow the tail end of a fish - but it wasn't enough.)
 - 1 fledged, July 5
 - last seen on nest, July 31 (but the cam was offline frequently in August, so there may have been later visits)
