Channel Islands Live Bald Eagle Webcams

Kevin White
 

The Bald Eagle Webcams provide an intimate view of the breeding and nesting behavior of bald eagles at the Channel Islands. Enhance your virtual experience with status reports posted by eagle biologists on the Bald Eagle Webcam Discussion Forum.

Due to power and signal transmission issues at the remote nesting sites, the bald eagle webcams may temporarily drop their video feed. We are working on solutions and hope to have reliable webcams operating soon on this webpage. As an interim measure, please visit Pelican Harbor Nest on Ustream and Sauces Canyon Nest on Ustream.

In spring 2006, the first chick to hatch unaided by humans on the Channel Islands in over 50 years made headlines across the country. Thrilled with the public interest in this historic event, the National Park Service and its partners established webcams that bring live, streaming images of bald eagle nests into the schools and homes of millions of Americans. The solar-powered camera runs daily between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm. Viewers will need a computer with high bandwidth and Windows Media Player.

The Channel Islands Live Bald Eagle Webcam was made possible through a partnership with the National Park Service, Ventura County Office of Education, and the Institute for Wildlife Studies with funding provided by the Montrose Settlements Restoration Program. The bald eagle nests are on the portion of Santa Cruz Island that is owned by The Nature Conservancy and they are graciously hosting the webcams.
