Camera #1 is positioned six feet above the nesting tree and is equipped with night vision or infrared light, which emits no actual light. The birds do not see or hear anything coming from the camera.
Camera #2 is located approximately 60 feet from the nest and has the ability to capture images of the nest action outside the view of Camera #1.
We are a working office and your compliance with the eagle watching etiquette is most appreciated.
The first time, I was on vacation with my family in Myrtle Beach, SC, and I was utterly terrified.
Luckily, Harriet & M returned to the area and got to work in September and the nest was in great shape for the laying of their two eggs in November.
But as the nest started to deteriorate, the eagles were attacked by an owl on May 7.Ozzie & Harriett returned to the nest in October and laid two eggs in November. The 1st egg (E1/Hope) was laid on November 26 at pm., hatched January 1, 2013 at p.m. The 2nd egg (E2/Honor) was laid on November 29 at pm., hatched January 3, 2013 at .p.m. Please remember the closer you are to the nest, the less you can see.The 1st egg (E3) was laid November 17 at 4.37pm and hatched (36 days) Dec. The 2nd egg (E4) was laid November 20 at PM and hatched (35 days) Dec. The best viewing location is from your desktop at home. If you can see the nest please remember you are being watched and recorded, even at night.Unfortunately Egg #1 was not viable and did not hatch. Being the only eaglet in the nest, E9 thrived and grew on schedule.Even setting a record for the earliest fledge when accidentally fledging on March 14th at .Both successfully hatched eaglets (E7 hatched January 26 at am (day 38); E8 hatched January 27 at pm (day 36)) and spending the first few weeks of life developing on schedule. 9, E8 had to be cut free from the nest after getting monofilament fishing line wrapped around its leg and foot cutting off circulation and causing swelling.
