Capturing the Majesty of the Bald Eagle

LIVE Bald Eagle Cams


Happy fall to all Friends and viewers! 

As most of you are aware, Nic and Vic, our resident eagles, did not return to the nest last year. We were all surprised at the turn of events and we miss them with you and simply trust that they are alive and well on their adventures elsewhere.

What did happen last season is that there were many visiting eagles as well as some territorial disputes. After extended and numerous visitations, we even started calling it our “EC Bed and Breakfast Season!” However, after several weeks, it became clear that there would not be a settled pair.

At this point, due to that fact and other extenuating circumstances, we have made the decision to pause our viewing season until we have confirmation of an established couple taking over the nest. 

If or when we have that confirmation, we will go live and bring you the good news! Thanks for your patience and understanding!

We receive many questions about Victoria & Nicholas, the history of the nest and their lives. Many of these questions we have tried to answer below.

Where is this nest located?2019-03-01T19:56:47+00:00

This eagle’s nest is located on private property, which is also a small working cattle ranch, near a large state park in southwest Florida. Eagle Country is made up of a small group of people who love God, love His people and love eagles. The ranch has been in the family for generations and the nest has been on the property for around 20 years.

What are the eagles’ names and how long have they nested here?2020-02-21T07:30:13+00:00

Victoria & Nicholas – also affectionately known as Vic & Nic. To clarify, they are not named after characters on daytime TV, these names simply seemed to suit them! They have nested here since 2001. Their original nest and the tree it was in blew down in Hurricane Irma after 16 years. They built a new nest in an adjacent tree. That nest, unfortunately, blew down in an unseasonable storm on 12.21.18. The nest that you see now the eagles rebuilt immediately in December 2018.

How long have Victoria & Nicholas been a pair?2019-10-03T21:08:09+00:00

We have no definitive way of knowing since we have only had cams for a couple years. However, we do know that we have consistently seen eagles come and go seasonally since their original nest was built in 2001.

How do I tell Victoria & Nicholas apart?2020-09-22T16:13:48+00:00

It can be hard to figure out who is who! Here are some simple distinguishing features to help:

  1. Victoria is larger than Nicholas.
  2. On the left side of Nicholas’ beak there is a slight “dent” or marking that is particular to him. It is seen best when the camera is up close.
  3. Victoria has a lighter brown/tan coloring on the tips of her white tail feathers.
  4. Nicholas has darker coloring right around his eyes.

Can the eagles see the IR lights at night?2019-10-07T20:37:50+00:00

The eagles cannot see the IR light at night because it is invisible to them. In fact, if you were to stand under the tree at night, it would be completely dark outside!

Why am I seeing so many mosquitos and bugs?2019-10-07T19:59:15+00:00

This nest is located near very swampy areas of Florida. Along with swamp conditions comes times of dense mosquitos and various bugs in the air. It is not uncommon to have a short period of time in the evenings (often 15-20ish minutes) of a sort of “swarm” of mosquitos. After this, although not swarm-like, the air is still thick with flying insects. The eagles are used to it and although they shift, scratch and “wave away” much like we would, they have learned how to deal with them.

Am I hearing gunshots?2020-09-22T16:18:01+00:00

This nest located in the country on private property and is also a working ranch. Because it is in the country, sound really travels. While the shots may seem loud and close on cam, they are not. Also, the shots do not pose a threat to the eagles.
