Brendan sent me a text message this morning about a live webcam of bald eagles nesting at Eastwood Lake in Riverside. One search on the web and I found a Dayton Daily News story and the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery’s eagle page:
Throughout the 2010 nesting season, the Boonshoft Museum will host live video streaming of Dayton’s resident Eagle pair “Jim” and “Cindy,” and provide updates on the couple using input of the Eastwood Eagle Watchers.
Designed to bring a birds-eye view of these iconic raptors to the public, EagleCam is perched on a tower nearly 800 feet away from the Eagle’s nest. As the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act makes it illegal to disturb Bald Eagles in any way, EagleCam was planned to bring images of these amazing birds to the public in a safe way, providing unique access to Eagles in the wild.
