“Coming Soon!”

The Eagle Cam project partners are working out the technical details of launching the Eagle Cam for the 2010 season. The Eagle Cam at the Norfolk Botanical Garden is a joint project of the Department of Game & Inland Fisheries, The Norfolk Botanical Garden and WVEC.com. An official announcement will be made when the site is launched on WVEC.com. At this point both adult eagles are regularly being seen at the nest site - especially in the early morning and late afternoon. The adults are working on the nest and starting to engage in mating and courtship activities. The video below shows a brief mating behavior - watch as the male flies from the nest to join the female on one of their favorite perches.

The Eagle Cam will be live in time to catch all the action as this pair of Bald Eagles works to successfully raise yet another brood. Stay Tuned!
