Eagle cam

The Sutton Avian Research Center is dedicated to finding cooperative conservation solutions for birds and the natural world through science and education, and is a part of the Oklahoma Biological Survey at the University of Oklahoma.

Our Bald Eagle nest cam provides an intimate view of a wild Oklahoma Bald Eagle nest. Children and adults fromOklahoma and around the world can observe life in an eagle nest, and scientists can make observations that willhelp us better understand the life history of our national symbol.

This nest is on OG&E property at Sooner Lake near Stillwater, Oklahoma. The original dead nest tree used by this pair of eagles fell down. OG&E, with technical assistance from the Sutton Center and financial assistance from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, erected an artificial tower which these eagles have adopted successfully.

I love watching nature webcams, so if you want to see this interesting eagle family, click right here:

Both parents are on the nest as I type this at 5p EST on 4/1. Let me know what you see when you visit!

That is so cool! She's laying on the nest.

I wish I could have a goose-cam! My geese started nesting about a week ago. We should have goslings in about 3 weeks! Woo Hoo!

I so love this. I didn't even know about this until now. How cool. Thanks for sharing.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hug. :)

What a cool thing to have though I think if I were the eagle, I'd be a bit put-out that I was on the bird's version of "Big Brother" minus all the squabbling houseguests!
