Decorah eagle cam to shut down

DECORAH (KWWL) -

Now that the young birds have started to fly, the wildly popular Decorah eagle cam will soon shut down.

The three bald eagle chicks that hatched in early April have left the nest. The camera was run by the Raptor Resource Project. It became a worldwide sensation and became the most watched live stream in history.

Bob Anderson, the director of the Raptor Resource Project, says the wall posting on the nest's Facebook page will be shut down Friday and the cameras likely will be turned off by the end of the week.

Anderson says he's proud that the nest cam showed so many people the wonders of nature.

He says the live stream will return next year with more and better quality cameras and faster uploads.
