Watch for eaglets on Duke Farms Eagle Cam

The Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey and Duke Farms are making it possible this spring to bird-watch from your desk with an Eagle Cam, above. The camera, at Duke Farms in Hillsborough, provides a window onto the lives of two bald eagles and their offspring.

The pair of eagles has been nesting at Duke Farms since 2005 and has raised six eaglets, according to the foundation. This season, they have been tending to three eggs; the first eaglet was confirmed on Monday morning. The others could hatch very soon.

The male in the pair of adult eagles is banded, with a silver band on one leg and a green one — indicating he was raised in New Jersey — on the other.

    Can I watch this with a Mac computer or must one have a windows machine? I would like to watch but did not know which program to download.

    Please advise me.

    Thanks

    I went looking for the nest this past weekend. Now I see what tree it is, looks to be a Sycamore, I will try again.

    I didn’t want to imply that I was looking for the nest. I heard from someone where the approximate area of the nest is. I just wanted to see the animals in flight. Add it to my life list of birding.

    This is so wonderful. It is amazing how you actually get attached to these birds after watching them for weeks! I hope all goes well and all three of the little Eaglets make it to adulthood. I’ll keep watching for sure.

    Did you band the egalets this morning??? I think i see bands on their legs. Will you let us know the sexes if you know what they are at this time. Thank You,

    So happy to see that the banding of the eaglets had no effect on them or the parents. Saw mom feeding all three at 5:35 PM. Thank you so much for this cam I love watching them every day.

    Layne-My friend Mary told me about the eaglet
    video because I have been bird watching for
    years. I am so excited to actually see on a
    daily basis their actions without the parents
    and their attention when the adults come
    with food…I am anxious to see the eaglets when
    they reach adolescence and are ready
    to fledge their nest-how awesome will that
    be…hope all three will thrive. Thanks for this
    site.
