Two eagles visit...

Hi All,

It is wonderful to see the eagles using this nest for foraging not to mention the time they are starting to put in by adding sticks and adding to the nest structure. Lets hope this continues. Many folks are enjoying keeping up to date by visiting us at where many photos and even some videos are posted.

Wish you all the best and keep in touch.

Immature Eagle Visit!

Hi All, as some of you may be aware we had an immature eagle visit the nest site today and devour a prey item. I can only guess at what the eagle was eating but it appeared to be a hearty feast. It is possible that this is one of the eagles that fledged from this nest earlier this year. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing for certain. Below are a few more photos for you to relive this fascinating event. As you can see it was a beautiful day in Maine!

As usual, please keep in touch and enjoy BRIeaglecam2!

All the Best,

Fall is upon us.

Hi All,
I am sure that some of you are happy to see the upper image loading. Sorry for the delay on this but we had some computer issues that we have at least solved for the time being.
We are very happy to have witnessed that success of these two eagles this year and hope for another successful season next year. Unfortunately the live feed on Eaglecam2 is unlikely to work until we are able to get a hardwired internet line to the site. The good news is that we can continue to monitor this nest with our multiple photo uploads.
One thing to look for over the coming weeks is an increase in 'nestorations'. There is often a pulse of breeding type activity at this time of year for some eagles that remain on territory. Eagles are seen in the area of this site year-round. This nest tending activity is a good predictor of future nesting efforts so cross your fingers!
Have a great day!
