Here's an update from facebook giving some information about the actual nest box.


Savannah and Derek’s Nest

Over the past few years, the nest in the Eagle Aviary at Carolina Raptor Center has moved around a bit as the eagles found their best spot for laying eggs. The current nest box is at two-story affair, the 6 1/2 ft square lower box is filled with large rocks to facilitate drainage. The 5 1/2 ft upper box is screened with mesh — also for drainage purposes. It is filled with mulch. Sticks from last year’s nest remain in the box, old sub-par sticks were removed, a layer of mulch was added and additional materials were provided so that the pair can nest build on their own this year.

The nest differs from that of eagles in the wild in that it is on the ground instead of in a large tree. That is necessary because of the injuries of the paired eagle couple. In the aviary, the eggs are safe from predators, and other eagles do not often approach the pair as they incubate and raise young.

I'm afraid I found the announcement a little too late to see more than a blank screen - but ...

TA-DA!

Here's the new link for the new streaming cam at the Carolina Raptor Center!

I'll also add it to the first page - and look forward to seeing Derek and Savannah tomorrow!

Thanks, JudyB! I was out for most of the day so I missed it too. I can't wait to see the lovely but bossy Savannah put Derek through his paces again. Roll eyes
