Hundreds of thousands of people around the world have been captivated by the live video stream of a bald eagle nest in Decorah, Iowa near the Decorah Fish Hatchery.
The live video feed is streamed online 24/7 using a camera with infrared night vision. The nest is 80 feet up in the air in a cottonwood tree. It’s 5-6 feet wide and weighs about 1 and 1/2 tons.
In the last week all three eagle eggs have hatched and the mother and father eagles have been taking turns keeping the little fuzzy babies warm and bringing back a variety of healthy snacks like fish and squirrel.
The camera can both pan and zoom and is controlled in a nearby shed! I want that job!
