Eaglecam

A webcam has been set up, allowing us to "watch a pair of eagles nesting 70 feet above the ground in a white pine in coastal Hancock County."
BioDiversity Research Institute, a nonprofit in Gorham, has set up a camera that shows the eagles on the group's Web site. The first egg was laid on March 6, and the first eaglet is expected to hatch in April.

The camera was installed early this month to heighten awareness about eagles as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service considers removing the birds from its endangered species list. There are 385 nesting pairs of eagles in Maine, up from just 30 pairs in the early 1970s. [Link]
