Iroquois Eagle Nest Cam 2003

Scroll down below the picture for information about the webcam and history of the eagles.

We currently only have the one picture. We will have a slide show shortly.

This view of the Eagle Nest on the Cayuga Pool of the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge in western New York is from a camera mounted some 80 feet up in a Cottonwood Tree. In order to minimize any disturbance to the Eagles that have stayed in the area all year, the installation was made in the winter amid winter winds and icy temperatures. The camera used is a miniature design no more than an inch and a half in diameter by six inches long. Since it is no more than eight feet from the nest, the small camera was chosen to avoid any visual disturbance to the nest site. A solar panel to power the camera and a video transmitter is mounted on a rack some 400 feet from the base of the nest tree.

A live view of the eagles is also available on a monitor at the Iroquois Refuge visitor center. Directions to the refuge and more information can be found on the refuge website.

New York Wild feels it is important for those of you who log-on to this site, to not only enjoy what you see, but to understand the background events that brought us to the point of being able to view the images seen here. The blood, sweat, and tears of a dedicated group of professionals, fused with the enthusiasm and commitment of dozens of volunteers, has resulted in one of the most amazing wildlife success stories ever witnessed. To start with literally the last known pair of eagles in New York, and reach the level of achievement found within our borders today, can only be described as miraculous.
