Chat SCHEDULE

The nest is located about 80 feet up in a Longleaf Pine tree and was built by the resident eagles approximately 11 years ago. Through the years, the nest has grown considerably in size and weight (likely weighing close to a ton)

In order to protect the eagles and their nest, the specific location of this nest is private and cannot be disclosed.

FOR HISTORY OF THIS NEST READ BELOW THE CAM

Click Here

ABOUT OUR CAMS with thanks to AEF
Three high-definition cams are available on this page. Two are mounted on the nest tree and provide different views of the nest. The third cam is mounted on a nearby tree at a lower angle and shows the nest tree and the canopy. If you watch for a while, you may be lucky enough to see eagles flying to and from the tree, and when the eaglets get to a certain size, you will see them begin to branch and ultimately fledge the nest.

The three video cam views are accessed by clicking on “Other Views,” located at the bottom right of the screen when mousing over the video screen. The three views will be shown at the bottom of the screen as thumbnails, and you can simply click the view you want to watch. By default, cam one has been selected.

At night, an infrared light is turned on. The eagles cannot see this light; it is outside their visible spectrum of light. Neither can humans. If you were at the nest site, looking up at the tree at night, you would only see light from the moon or stars. The infrared light is converted into visible light (black and white) by the camera.

We would like to thank the (AEF) and Al Cecere for sponsoring this wonderful window into the daily life of these majestic raptors and to HWF for sponsoring it on the web cam And I would like to thank MaryF and Judy B for pulling together some of the information for our opening posts.[

Time Line

[*]Eagles Return .. August 10 Samson ...Sept.1 Gabrielle at 2:45p
OFFICIAL AEF Nest Support
Gretchen Butler · 5pm ·
AEF-NEFL We stand corrected....It was previously posted that Gabby returned on Sept 1. We were over-zealous! She officially returned to the nest today (Sept 12) just as she did 2 years ago. She perched at length on Lookout Point. Tonight she and Samson are roosting at home. What a beautiful sight! Welcome home, Gabby!

viewtopic.php?p=500073#p500073

Today at 10:16 PM
AEF~NEFL what a great day! Gabby and Samson at the nest together after their
summer break! Looked like they picked up right where they left off! Video is
a bit long but I didn't want to edit out their interactions. They bring us
such joy!!

The IR isn't functional yet. Our tech team has some diagnostics to complete before it's operating. They may take the cams down tomorrow for a bit to do some coding on the cams either at the equip box or remotely.

We have a little hiccup with Cam 2. HDonTap needs to figure some settings out. The cam is fine, just an adjustment that needs to be made.

Pre-midnight check-in: All is quiet in the nest...no little frogs or visitors right now...more rain tomorrow but all is peaceful. Goodnight Sam and Gabby wherever you are...goodnight everyone! ☔

jd_AEF#3811 Today at 2:51 AM
It's nearly 2 am...no sign of any action in the nest at this time. All is very quiet in the Hamlet now.

jd_AEF#3811 Today at 6:21 AM
5 am update: Good morning! All's quiet in the Hamlet...no sign of any early morning fly-ins or visitors in the nest. We know it's still the off season, but those quick visits were just enough to make us anxious to see eagles again. Hope you're tucked and enjoying your vacation until the time is just right, Sam and Gabby! Be safe!
