wave Mary. My inquiring mind had to know what was happening with this cam.

Thank you Wendy for your very quick response to my email


Message from Wendy Connally of the Washington Dept. of Fish & Wildlife.

We have had some technical difficulties which we are working through with our staff and partners. I’m hoping we can work through some of our issues and craft a good plan by early next spring (2015) to “revive” the cam program and better manage camera reliability. I also hope to have more relevant and frequent updates online so that interested folks like you can track our progress to get these up and running again. I wish I had a date-certain for you, but right now, we’re just in assessment phase. Your best bet will be to check back online around January to see where we are in that project.

I'm going to wait and see if the cams and/or the eagles return here before setting up a new thread for 2015. By putting a few reserved spots here the thread can be split if necessary. It was a surprise when the nest totally fell apart an d left the tree without a single branch to be seen!! (See the last posts above here for pictures of the empty nest tree) Sitting eagle

An update from Lake Washington ~~


WildWatchcams

BALD EAGLES

This WildWatch camera has not been sending a signal since the end of nesting season around July 2014. Repairs will be scheduled to get the camera ready for 2015 nesting season. Until then, you can watch the EagleCam Pre-recorded Videos. Check back in mid-January 2015 – an update will be posted here when this camera is available.

Our WIldWatchCam has been located in a 100-foot tall Douglas-fir tree on private property in North Puget Sound, directly above a nest site that a pair of eagles has chosen for a few years. A bald eagle pair usually establishes a number of nests in different areas and may choose a different site each year, so we are thrilled if they come back to this site with our camera. Currently, at least one adult eagle is back at this nest site, so it looks promising.

In 2014, this nest was occupied January through mid-July. The pair produced two eaglets who put a lot of wear and tear on the nest and video equipment during their pre-fledging stage (kind of like toddlers in a playpen!). The nest eventually collapsed under their abuse, which is normal as the young bounce around testing their wings, but – good news – both eaglets successfully fledged. Eagles can and do rebuild nests in the same place every year, especially where they successfully reproduced.

Thanks for your interest and stay tuned for updates!

Welcome, numbertenox2 - and I sadly think you're right.

Since the nest started breaking up, I've found it easier to see what's happening at night - so am adding a s'cap of what I'm seeing now.

Yes we did lose the nest last season when the chicks were very energetic while getting ready to fledge. they actually did have to fledge from what you can see right now.

This update, which is near the top of the page is the latest from the folks who run this cam and was posted on their site last week. -- forum/viewtopic.php?topic=710614#710614

Just thought I would take a peek at this nest. Our wonderful eagle pair never came back to their beautiful tree. Sad
