Little Miami Conservancy Eagle Nest Cam 2021-2022

Post by Baita » Sat Oct 16, 2021 3:51 pm

This new camera was installed this past September. It is part of the awareness and conservation efforts of the Little Miami Conservancy. Established in 1967, this organization seeks to support and improve the area surrounding the Little Miami National Wild and Scenic River in the state of Ohio. The nest is located within private land. The pair of eagles have no names so far. Here is a link to the organization:

SUNDAY, October 17
Little Mom and Little Dad arrived today at 7:30. This time, one of them called out but the other didn’t respond. However, it appears that the other adult was already in one of the nest tree’s branches. The first adult had hopped from above. It’s possible they spent the night on the tree.
:vid: Here’s a link to a video of today’s morning call:

What sounded like gunshots heard at 11:21 & 11:22, 11:24 :dunno: Many shots, possibly from a rifle were shot every minute to minute and a half for about a half hour.
7:15 marching band heard at distance. Yep. :mihihi:
SUNDAY, October 24
There appears to be a squirrel nest inside the eagle nest. One can see them often, especially early in the morning.

FRIDAY, October 29
NOTICE: if I don’t post it’s because I haven’t seen OR heard the Littles. I’m monitoring daily. It’s very early in the season. In truth they haven’t truly begun nestorations. Will keep you updated! :eag: :eag:

The adult turns to look at the direction the event came from and immediately left the nest 10:59

Thanks so much for setting up this thread, Baita - it looks as if they will be a fun pair to watch! Nice captures of fly-in's - it looks as if the camera has a good angle for that!

Surprise! They returned right away (8:09) and this time I can confirm that for the first time I’ve witnessed an adult actually bringing a stick to the nest. Yayyyyyyy! This shows an elevated level of intent in preparing the nest for a possible season.

Such a handsome couple. They look very very similar. Sometimes it looks as if one s bigger than the other but then they move around and it could be the camera angle.
