Eagle Cam

The National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) in Shepherdstown, WV, offers a live feed of Smitty and Bella - the resident eagles.  They started building their nest there in 2002 and laid their first eggs there in 2004.  Eggs should be expected around Valentine's Day.  Incubation period is around 35-38 days.  The students have been enjoy seeing the eagles throughout the day so I wanted to share the link so they could continue to watch the eggs hatch and then watch them grow.

The eagle nest is on the west side of the National Conservation Training Center campus in Shepherdstown, WV. It's about 100 feet high in a large sycamore tree, and is about 6 feet across and 5 feet deep, and weights several hundred pounds. It is made of branches and large sticks with a softer grass and leaf lining.
