Duke Farms Eagle Cam

The Beginning

In 2008, Duke Farms installed a webcam on a tree adjacent to a bald eagle nest to provide a live look at the eagles.

Partnership Overview

In partnership with the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey, the Eagle Cam allows viewers an up close and personal view into the lives of a pair of bald eagles as they breed, incubate and raise young. It is tool for teaching about wildlife and its many facets like animal behavior, bird biology, natural history, endangered species, food webs, and more. The Duke Farms Eagle Cam has 10 million+ viewers worldwide and continues to grow.

 

Remember, although we have access to witness their behaviors, the eagles are still wild animals. If you find the nesting behaviors of the eagle chicks bothersome or disturbing, do not watch the Eagle Cam.
