The National Eagle Center is proud to unveil the Eagles4Kids live streaming eagle nest web cam. The stream can be viewed by visiting Eagles4Kids.com
Mike Lawrence, a third-fourth grade teacher at Blair-Ettrick Elementary School of Science, Engineering, and Technology, and Heath Sershen, National Eagle Center Technology Manager, managed the project’s camera installation which involved forming partnerships with several agencies including CenturtyLink and Riverland Energy Cooperative.
The installation process video is available on our YouTube station, YouTube.com/nationaleaglecenter
“The project is intended to engage third and fourth graders with American Bald Eagles and their ecosystems and as a catalyst for learning web communication skills,” said Sershen. “Fortunately (for us) the students wanted to allow the stream to be publicly accessible.”
The students involved in this project designed the website and are responsible for its maintenance and up-keep.
Regular updates on the birds in the nest, during nesting season, will be posted to both the NationalEagleCenter.org and Eagles4.kids.com website.
We expect the Eagles to return to their nest in late January to middle February. The nest is located in western Wisconsin.
