Duke Farms Eagle Cam
In 2008, Duke Farms installed a webcam on a tree adjacent to the nest to provide a live look at the daily lives of the eagles. In partnership with The Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey, lesson plans were created to facilitate place based educational opportunities for students. Between the general public and classrooms up and down the east coast, the Duke Farms Eagle Cam has many fans – over 6 million viewers and building!
Upon reviewing user observations, video and consulting state wildlife biologists it appears that both eggs hatched on March 25! A clip of the hatchlings can be found in the video links on the right hand side of this page. Given the angle of the cam, you can just make out the tops of their heads.
A Red-tailed Hawk attempted a fly by on the nest which was met by defensive action from one of parent eagles. A clip of the fight can be found in the video links on the right hand side of this page.
We are approaching the end of the 6 week incubation period so the eggs could hatch within the next few days! We will post another update once we determine the eggs have hatched so please stay tuned.
Upon reviewing user observations, video and consulting state wildlife biologists it appears the eagles have laid two eggs. One on February 14 and another on February 17.
