The Other Eagles

baby eaglesWe've been alternating the stream on our behind-the-circ-desk wall screen between the Savannah owls and the National Arboretum eagles.

Earlier this winter library visitors watched various feeders, the eagles in NW Florida and, last summer, mammals — the brown bears of Alaska.

But there are many other cams we keep an eye on behind the desk - the Wellesley ravens, Cornell hawks Ezra and Big Red, Baltimore peregrines, little Bella, lots of Ospreys, and many other eagle cams.

Here are the eagle cams we have bookmarked. For up-to-date-news and links to other other eagle cams, monitor Eagleholic

Justice and Liberty at the DC Police Academy - hatch on 03/26.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services' National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, West Virginia.

Wisconsin - Eagles for kids Long running soap opera. Don't get attached to the eggs as once again they probably will not hatch. Father eagles need good parenting skills and they just don't seem to have them here. Nevertheless this is fun because the daily log maintained by local school kids is a delight.

East Tennessee State University - hatched!

Decorah Iowa - as at this writing there are 3 eggs.

Pennsylvania Game Commission Hanover Pennsylvania. We watched this last year. Currently two eggs, waiting for a hatch.

Hillsborough NJ - Duke Farms - hatch on 03/26. Check their blog for updates - and they offer an e-book about their eagles (read online).

River Farm Virginia. First hatch Mar 25 2016

Pittsburgh along the Monongahela River. In 2013 when a storm blew the nest down, the parents managed to raise their eaglet on the ground.

Berry College Georgia. Two juveniles, hatched in February.

SW Florida Hatched two months ago - great big juveniles now, hanging about the nest. They were battling babies, now buddies.

West Coast Eagle Cams

Prefer owls?
Texas has some very weird barn owls. Dash and Dottie just hunker down all day. Quite soporific. (According to their twitter feed they now have an Easter egg.)

Garden Art

Library GardenJust outside the library, next to the mosaic on the south wall, the small children's garden is bundled down for the winter. But just below we have beautiful new murals.
