2023 Eagle Nest Cam Season Begins!
Tune in for a new season of Bald Eagle chat via YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPI9mWmmc7M. Do the eagles chat with visitors? Sadly, no, but our experts can answer your questions while you watch real-time nesting action!
The stars, Hope and Chandler, have returned to Port Tobacco River Park each year since this cam went live in 2019. Beginning Tuesday, January 31, join the chat sessions twice weekly, Tuesday mornings (for eagle breakfast, or “breakfish”) from 8:00 to 9:00 and Friday evenings from 4:00 to 5:00 (Eastern Standard Time). Hope has historically laid the first eggs in early February, so we could witness “eggcitement” soon!
The Port Tobacco River Park nest cam depicts wild Bald Eagles. Please know that there are scenarios that some viewers may find difficult to watch. Interactions with other wildlife, sibling rivalry, and weather can impact the eggs and/or eaglets. While we hope for a successful season, remember, anything could happen. Nesting success at this location has varied. In 2019 and 2020, two eaglets fledged, but in 2021 no chicks survived. Last year, one fledged.
This nest cam was installed and is maintained by Wild Streaming, which hosts other nests at https://www.wildstreaming.com/. For links to more nest cams around the world, see the SMAS Nest Cam page at https://www.somdaudubon.org/learn-about-birds/nest-cams/.
