Baby bald eagle cam, in the nest, real time

British Columbia, Canada, has long been in the forefront of preservation of bald eagles. Right now (April/May/June 2009) an amazing webcam is capturing the unfolding progress of baby eaglets as they grow are nurtured and raised.

Enjoy the exceptional show. Remember the nest is in the Pacific time zone.

The nest is in an old Garry oak tree in Sidney, BC – a suburb of Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, situated on the South end of Vancouver Island. The area is near the Swartz Bay ferry terminal on the Saanich Peninsula. In nest season 2006, the eagles raised 2 eaglets. In season 2007 they successfully raised one. Here we are in 2009!

Click through to the Hancock Wildlife Channel to see images of the bald eaglets as they have their first feedings and interact with their parents.

    The site is back. I see three eaglets still. Awesome.

    Still enjoying the wonder of it all. Perhaps those operating the site will have access to what happens beyond our range of view so we can know how our family of eagles faired. Thank you for what we have enjoyed and I will continue to watch as long as it continues.

    Sorry gerry left the site. Left good comments.

    I left for a few hours but being addicted after months of watching,…I came back and so happy that I did.
    A lady wrote to me and said they were due to fly out July 8th when they were to have a picnic on that day. I guess the noise might do it.
    I told her July 8th was my birthday (81st) and she wished the four of us the best.
    How sweet she is to think like that.
    Thanks for appreciating some of my comments

    We were just enjoying the eagles and decided to take a look at the comments “to see if gerry had by any chance come back to the site and left any comments”. WELCOME BACK! We are glad you are addicted to the family of eagles and we can all enjoy them together/ We were also delighted to hear of your upcoming 81st birthday on July 8th. We won’t be here then and so would like to wish you an early, Wonderful Blessed 81st Birthday Gerry – and many more. God bless you and we will try to find a computer to check out the birds on July 8. In the meantime, we will continue to watch. We did see one of them fly off the edge of the nest today. It looked like maybe to a lower branch. Again, we have enjoyed all the comments of those watching this wonderful event.

    What a sight yesterday when I saw the largest eagle return to the nest with the mother.
    They stayed for a while and flew off again. She must be teaching him the ropes while keeping and eye on the two remaining ones.
    I’ll be away for 2 days so I might miss out on the big finale.
    I hope folks watching will keep us posted…

    Ww watched one of the eagles (I think it was the small one, not sure) yesterday while trying to eat something the mother brought. It appeared that the baby either doesn’t know how or can’t hold the food down with her feet. Later in the day the mother was feeding the baby (not sure if it was the same one) from the same piece I believe. Also have all the babies left the nest yet? I peeked late last night and didn’t see anyone in the nest. but not being able to see all of it I’m not sure. We always leave our sound up and usually you can tell if the eagles are there. We are still cheering them on hoping all will survive!

    What happened to Tiny after he feel from the nest in Sydney

  • http://realtime gerry

    The small one hasn’t left yet. Sometimes he’s behind the big tree on the left for hours and we can’t see him.
    Friday, the mother flew in with a fish to feed him but ( lo and behold), one of the big siblings followed her in the nest and ate the fish. The small one tried to get some food but the bigger one really got mad and scared him away. The small one kept cocking his head sideways looking at the food. I felt sooo bad for the small one that I went camping for a day. (I’m beginning to think like an eagle so you folks might think I have a problem after watching this show for the last few months!!!)
    Tonight…he’s still standing alone waiting.
    Keep on watching and record the time when the last one takes off.
    If I see it, I’ll post the date and time.

  • http://Babybaldeaglecam,inthenest,realtime Bernice

    Good idea Gerry. Maybe you will be the one to see the baby leave. I watch as much as possible – it is really exciting. We keep praying God will give that littlest one courage to fight for itself and also to leave the edge of that nest and take flight!

    Did anyone see how Tiny got back to the nest after she fell out on Saturday?

  • http://realtime gerry

    I guess it’s the end of a fantastic show and experience folks.
    All good things have to come to and end.
    Thanks to everyone who kept in touch and I sure hope I can read somewhere how the eagle family turned out and what’s happening.
    It’s been a pleasure and special thanks to LYNN ROSEN who answered many of our questions.
    Adios bird lovers……..

    At least two of the eaglets are back this morning, searching out bits of food in the nest. It’s not over yet!

    I see the smaller one in the nest tonight…. July 12th-2009 at 9.30 Eastern daylight saving time…6.30 B.C. Time.
    He seems to be crying a lot…

  • http://realtime gerry

    July 20th-2009 and an eagle came in the nest at 9.45 P.M. Eastern time.
    Sure has grown a lot and can’t tell which one he is.

  • leta

    Crying for food or attention, too.

  • Patricia Garrigan

    Wed July 22nd midnite (Eastern) 2 back for a visit. Has anyone seen Tiny lately?

  • http://realtime gerry

    I see Tiny is lying in his favorite spot. Quite a site. We can see the smoke from the fires in B.C.
    Still have 300+ faithful viewers.

    Thank You, Lynn Rosen for the wonderful opportunity to watch the beautiful family of American Bald Eagles grow. We just got back home from a time away and quickly went to the computer to see if the eagles were gone. We feel kind of sad. After watching them daily for so long we really miss them but are happy at the same time that they all made it out of the next, as far as we know. We will never forget our time spent with the eagles. We will keep checking back. Again, Thank You!

    I’m still watching…down to 84 viewers from 1011″ at the top viewing audience”
    Male and female showed up last night…Male seemed to be trying to tidy up the nest for next year…
    She wasn’t too impressed.
    Just stood there and looked at him and seemed to say…good luck big guy…

    Thank you to whoever cleaned the lens. What a crisp clear picture now. Many thanks for the joy this 24/7 site provides.

  • Jane S.

    Tuesday, Feb.4,2010, both adults were in the nest about 5PM, PST. They were moving some of the nesting material around.

  • Jane S.

    Did one of the eggs hatch? Thought I saw eaglet on 4/3/10.

    Is this a single parent every time I watch there is only 1 adult there with the eaglet?

  • LM

    I’ve seen dad come in and do childcare duty. They switch off occasionally. Mom seems to be the primary caretaker though. Dad just came in with a fish and ate it all in front of them!

  • Dee

    Little Bobblehead is growing fast and taking a few steps outside the grass cup Mom has kept him in. What’s up with the bamboo sticks that appeared the other day and now are gone. I saw Mom gnaw on them and rearrange them a few times, then I didn’t see them again.

  • Phil

    One adult fed the baby and stayed with it. By the way, what happened to the other egg? Didn’t they have two?

  • Dee

    We need a washer-wiper gizmo on that lens.

  • Phil

    Mom (or dad – how do you tell the difference?) brought a fish in this morning and let the little one eat for himself. So the life lessons start. He/she must learn how to hold the fish down and pull the meat off. Baby is doing a great job while mom patiently watches.

  • Liz

    What happened to the camera lens? Can’t see little Bobblehead.
    It’s to bad were all missing watch him grow up.

  • Phil

    Mother nature arranges for the baby bird to projectile it’s excrement out and away from the nest. This keeps it clean and germ free. Unfortunately the camera box is level with the nest instead of over it and looking down. So it looks like the little one scored a number of direct hits. Perhaps it will rain.
