Egg-Citing News! HEGPS is pleased to report that Mom appears to have laid an egg at 8:19 PM on March 30! Mom and Dad are exhibitng the behaviours of expectant eagle parents; keeping their egg warm and protected, their nest in tip-top shape, and sharing incubation duties.
Mom and Dad Hornby have successfully fledged 21 eaglets during their long-standing partnership! Here's hoping for another healthy eaglet for this special pair!
For current information about the Hornby Eagles, please visit our forum at www.ournaturezone.com. There are ground observations with amazing photographs of Mom and Dad Hornby along with cam video highlights.

Hornby Eagles - Nest and Territory is presented by the Hornby Eagle Group Projects Society (HEGPS), a not for profit organization registered in British Columbia, Canada. The cam provides a new view of some old friends; the world famous Hornby Eagles.
The HEGPS cam is mounted in a tree approximately 230 feet from the nest tree. The PTZ (pan, tilt, and zoom) cam is capable of viewing the nest as well as the environs in which the Hornby Eagles live. The placement of the cam allows viewers to see the eagles at the nest, where they perch, and where they spend some of their time away from the nest. The cam is operated remotely by HEGPS members. The cam operators are able to follow Mom and Dad (and eaglets) as they go about their activities. In the 2012 season, the fledging of the eaglet “Hali” was broadcast as it happened! It was a thrill for viewers to see where Hali went on her maiden flight; as well as follow her post-fledge adventures.
The Hornby Eagles have used the same nest tree since 1989 and have successfully fledged twenty-one eaglets. The HEGPS cam allows researchers and fans of the pair to continue to document and learn from this beloved pair.
