Channel Islands Live Bald Eagle Webcam

The Bald Eagle Webcam provides an intimate view of the breeding and nesting behavior of bald eagles at the Channel Islands. 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.

NOTE: We are in the process of rebuilding our network between Santa Cruz Island and the mainland. Until it is up and running again, our live cameras on Santa Cruz Island are down and will only be showing highlights from the past year.

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.
