Jordan Lake WildlifeCam
Pets, Animals - Birds
The Jordan Lake Eagle Nest-cam has gone through some major changes this summer after the unfortunate nest collapse of our nest last winter. We have been monitoring the nest site and it does not appear that the pair of eagles will be repairing or re-using the same nest. Instead of a nest focused live feed, we have set up a more all-purpose wildlife camera near the Jordan Lake Dam. For the past several winters we have observed a migrating flock of juvenile and adult bald eagles at the dam site, with some daily counts of 25+ eagles. We also have regular osprey, blue heron, turkey and black vulture sightings, and countless other raptor, songbird, and other species sightings. We have a new camera this year with Pan-Tilt-Zoom capabilities, so we will be able to move the view around and zoom in on things. While we are disappointed that we won't have the opportunity to watch an eagle nest up close, we are also excited about the new viewing opportunities that this year's camera will provide. We are still working on finishing up the installation of the new wildlife cam, and will update the Ustream and Facebook sites once we are getting close to launching the feed.
This Wildlife Camera is located on Jordan Lake near Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, NC. The camera was set up by the US Army Corps of Engineers and www.spyonabird.com.
