Lake Pleasant Bald Eagle Camera
The Arizona Game and Fish Department welcomes you to its bald eagle nest cam. This live-streaming camera provides an unedited glimpse of nature in all its beauty and cruelness. As with nature, viewers may witness a variety of behaviors that may seem cruel, such as feeding on other wild animals, so viewer discretion is advised.
During this breeding season eggs may be laid and hatched at different times. That can lead to aggressive interactions between growing siblings and can result in injury or death within the nest. Furthermore, the Arizona Game and Fish Department likely will not intervene with the nest if and when problems arise. The department may also choose to temporarily interrupt the live-stream, if needed.
An intimate view into the lives of wildlife is a rare privilege and we hope you enjoy and learn from this experience. For questions about the web camera, e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Update on the bald eagle cam
After several trips to both camera site, and radio repeater site, and multiple repairs, we have come to the conclusion that the camera indeed needs to be fully replaced. As the time of year is getting late and the eagles are already in the area, replacing the camera is a bit tricky. We are working closely with our raptor biologists to see how and when we can make this happen. We may not be able to replace the camera until April or May of 2022 because we do not want to disturb the eagles or deter them from breeding. Check back in January, as there may be a small window of hope that we can replace the camera then without disrupting the eagles. In the meantime, check out our Sandhill Crane Cam, as it is phenomenal this time of year! Thank you for your support and understanding!
About Lake Pleasant Bald Eagles
A suspected bald eagle nest was first documented at Lake Pleasant in 1979, which was followed with the first nesting attempt in 1984. Unfortunately, the eagle pair was unsuccessful in producing young until 1993 when the New Waddell Dam was constructed. Since then, as of the 2018 breeding season, 28 young have survived to take their first flight, known as fledging.
