    oh, they are breathtaking.  I wish some enterprising eagle-lover could set up a very discreet 24/7  GoPro or something like that so we could watch them coming and going and hopefully the babies grow up every day.  Thank you for the lovely photo Joanne.

    Are the cameras still up at that nest?

      I just called TB. They are discussing putting a camera at the nest. No decisions have been made yet. Maybe we should all call them and tell them we would like to have a camera there?

    It is very exciting to have the eagles back where we can walk to observe them.  I have always been perplexed by the lack of interest of the Turtle Bay Exploration Park administration.  The Park is a location to explore science and animals.  The general public paid for the current cams that are up to observe the eagles’ nest.  We bought the camera, had it installed, and Liberty and Spirit moved to the golf course.  Now that they are back “home” one would hope that Turtle Bay Park will do everything they can to get the cams working.  What a wonderful addition to the park.  At Turtle Bay School, when you enter the office during the time when the eaglets are in the nest, there is a large screen in the office where the children can observe the eagles/nature.  What better lesson is there?

  6. Karen C says:

    If the cameras are not there already, and the eagles have claimed the nest, I believe it is too late.  Installing the cameras would disturb them.  Doesn’t TB have a complete, camera system that the community donated to them for the last nest the eagles occupied?

    • Diane says:

      The new cameras were donated, and installed over the nest the eagles are currently in by Hwy 44.  Liberty and Spirit left that nest and moved across town before the cameras were ever used.  Now they have returned to the original nest.
