The BirdLife Australia Discovery Centre is an interactive interpretive hub where we provide opportunities for people to learn about and engage with birds in their natural habitat. And what better way to do so than by observing our resident pair of White-bellied Sea-Eagles on the nest! EagleCAM, gives bird lovers, researchers and scientists, 24-hour access into the lives of nesting sea-eagles and allows us to investigate their habitat, habits and how we can help them survive long term.
Established in 2009, EagleCAM (Sea-EagleCAM on Ustream) is a live remote feed that operates out of the Discovery Centre in Newington Armory at Sydney Olympic Park, close to the Parramatta River. EagleCAM was started and funded by a small group of BirdLife Australia volunteers, who continue to develop and operate the technology that brings the sea-eagles to your screen.

The White-bellied Sea-Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster) is the second largest bird of prey in Australia with a wing span of 1.8-2.2 metres (6-7 feet). It measures 75-85cm (30-33 inches) in length and can weigh up to 4.2kg (9 pounds), the female being larger and heavier than the male. Sea-eagles are found around the coast and along the major rivers of mainland Australia and Tasmania, New Guinea, South East Asia and as far west as the coast of India.
