SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A live Web camera is providing a look at the nest of two bald eagles in northern Indiana.
The camera was installed near the nest at St. Patrick’s County Park in northern St. Joseph County. The camera is at the University of Notre Dame’s Linked Experimental Ecosystem Facility.
The South Bend Tribune reports two bald eagles took over an existing red-tailed hawk nest at the facility last spring. Scientists have observed the birds in recent months building a nest again.
The two eagles have been observed as being the most active between sunrise and noon at the nest. Hatchlings wouldn’t be visible until they are around 5 to 6 weeks old in mid-May because of the angle of the camera.
