Eagle Web Cam
A pair of Alaskan Bald Eagles built a nest on the Glacier Gardens property in 2004 and since then have fledged several adolescent bald eagles into the great Alaskan wild. In 2010 we set up a video camera in an adjacent tree to capture some fascinating images as the couple returns each year to raise their offspring. Below is a live stream of the video feed where you can watch as Mamma and Poppa eagle tend to their nest and the baby eagle grow up before your eyes.
July 2017 – The eaglet is healthy and active while enjoying a rainy and cold Juneau summer. The parents are often hoovering over the eaglet giving it shelter to keep it warm and dry. It has grown at least double, almost triple, in size in the last month, and is starting to grow feathers on top of the fluffy down insulation. Feeding regularly by itself, the parents are leaving material in the nest and watching from afar as the eaglet is less likely to be abducted by raven or crow, but they are keeping a diligent eye on the territory to prevent any intruders. There is a lot of eagle activity both in the nest and around the Garden grounds and we’ve been enjoying watching with our guests as the action unfolds!
Recently upgraded to a HD camera, the nest is now streaming live on this webpage and inside our visitors center in the Gardens. We do not experience buffering on the webpage and it limits the theft of the video feed until our projects are complete. Thanks for watching!
Eagle Nest Highlights
We have compiled hundreds of hours of nest footage and have captured some never before seen looks at the every day life of an Alaskan Bald Eagle. Here are a few highlights that got our attention.We got a brief yet interesting look at the nest activity right after the hatchling sprung to life in the summer of 2015. The eaglet hatchling was not strong to survive and perished soon after this video was published. We watched on as the eagles returned to their nest in early spring to enjoy a snow flurry. Cross your fingers that we will see them incubating an egg soon! Unfortunately (for us and our viewers) the eaglet fledged from the nest on September 4th, 2012. Although we will not see the Jr. eagle much more this fall and winter, we’re happy to have witnessed another successful offspring make it into the great Alaskan wilderness, and are eagerly anticipating the return of our adult eagle pair in the spring of 2013. We zoom in to admire the beak and facial features of these beautiful birds and their intimidating stare. There is no privacy from our camera! We caught the eagle pair in a flurry of Eagle Magic on April 10th, 2012.
