Deschutes National Forest, Oregon - Bald Eagle Cam
This is a streaming cam with a 3-minute limit; there's a brief intro before you get to the cam.

The cam is located in Willamette Pass in Deschutes National Forest in central Oregon. The Deschutes National Forest Bald Eagle Cam is provided by the Oregon Zoo, AT&T, the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation, and the USDA Forest Service's NatureWatch Program. The area was first identified as an occupied territory in 1974, and has been successful in producing fledglings in 21 of the years since then. They raised one chick in 2006, and had early nest failures in 2007 and 2008. They laid one egg in 2009 (I don't actually remember any other pairs that laid only one egg in a nesting season), and it hatched, and the eaglet fledged; the eaglet (named Pengra Cescent) did not return to the nest after fledging, but two adults and a juvie were seen flying in the area a few days later, so we're optimistically assuming it was Pengra and her parents. They laid 2 eggs in 2010, but it was very snowy during the incubation period, and perhaps that is why, in spite of excellent care by the adults, the eggs did not hatch. The eagles do appear to have an alternate nest as well as the one with the camera, so we'll have to wait to see which one they use this year.

2010-2011 Season:

  • very snowy year; as far as we know, they did not nest - or if they did, the nest failed
