New camera allows live viewing of bald eagles

Posted:

DECORAH (KWWL) -- A newly installed video camera in Decorah is keeping an eye on a bald eagle's nest and giving viewers a look at the eagles' everyday life.

           The camera was placed above a nest near the Decorah Fish Hatchery and is part of a technology upgrade that now allows the camera full movement and zoomed in views of the nest.

            The camera is controlled by a joystick and will allow viewers to see eagle chicks hatching later this year as well as the nursing habits of the parent eagles.

            The eagle couple that resides in the nest built it about four years ago and has since raised eight chicks.
