Decorah Eagles Nest Cam Live Stream HD 2017

Here is Decorah Eagles Nest Cam In Enhanced HD View. This  Webcam is from from Raptor Research Project in Decorah Iowa. The project installed and runs the live stream for research purposes.

Two nests are in use by the pair. Both sit atop Cottonwood trees standing 500 feet apart near a fresh stream and Decorah Fish Hatchery, a trout farm.

Filmed in real time, the parents can be seen delivering a variety of freshly-caught prey, feeding the eaglets, and protecting them from predators and harsh weather. With the help of infrared lighting, the nest is viewable around the clock during the nesting season, which typically begins in January or February, with fledge in June.

The Decorah Eagles became an internet phenomenon and the most viewed livestream of all time when in 2012 the live cam reached 250 million views on Ustream, garnering roughly 2.4 million views per day. Ustream began hosting the video feed in 2010, though the live cam was initiated in 2007, and was used to provide footage for the 2008 Nature documentary “American Eagle”. The Eagles NEW North Nest Cam is here. 😉

    The eagle has been serenaded by song birds these past few days.

    FidoSysop, Is this the same pair that last year had the tainted food incident? I’m not thrilled about having three eggs. It wasn’t pleasant watching the late hatch being picked on last year.

      Remember that disaster well. Not sure whether they are the same Eagle pair or not.

    This morning, Feb 28, I saw two eggs for the first time. The bowl is deeper than most, and the camera angle makes it hard to see into it.

      Noticed that. She has built her nest to protect the eggs from bad weather.

    Well, I just now saw an egg. I’m glad that I was mistaken!

    Something has happened to the egg. It’s gone and it looks like a hole in the nest. The pair acts very bewildered.

      Dunno, I’ve been busy with work today. One is sitting on the nest now, and I noticed late today both were sitting on a branch. Have to pay more attention tomorrow.

    I wonder why the eagle is standing over the egg instead of sitting on it?

      Probably for the same reason as the chicken crossed the road.. ?

      I read somewhere last season, young eagles sometimes eat the 1st eggs. Not sure if it’s true or not.

    I think this nest is constructed very well, and the setting is interesting. It will be fun to follow the events that happen here, in 2017.

    For years I have enjoyed watching momma and poppa eagles and their babies. Keep checking but I see no eagles at the nest yet. Thanks for the live feed.

      Yea, me too. It’s probably the weather that has delayed the season. Check out Harriet and M15 nest in Ft. Myers FL. One of two eggs hatched and growing up fast.

    Possibly the Decorah Eagles went south to Florida avoiding that harsh winter.

    Harriet and M15 have a new eaglet doing good in Ft Myers Fla.
