Watch eagles in action at the NCTC
The NCTC partners with the Outdoor Channel, providing this live Eagle Cam to stream the activities of the eagle nest located on the grounds of the US FWS National Conservation Training Center. The nest has been active since 2006, fledging several juvenile bald eagles. The eagles return to the nest for the winter season around mid-January, with eggs being laid in early February. The eagles are wild birds and the NCTC does not interfere or intervene, and allows nature to take its course.
Support the Eagle Cam With a Donation
We’re very excited to announce that a new camera and supporting equipment have been installed so that visitors have an improved view of the eagles. With your help and support we have purchased a new camera, the infrastructure, cables and new technologies that increased the bandwidth, allowing for a higher picture quality and less buffering. We are so grateful to all who have donated and made the new eagle cam possible and we hope you enjoy and learn from watching the eagles in their nest.
We welcome continued donations for additional equipment and maintenance that may be necessary to support the eagle cam.
In Memory of our friend and devoted eagle supporter, Jo Lennox
