More Raptor Cams Go Live

Earlier this year a pair of bald eagles in Decorah, IA, became a web sensation as millions tuned in to a live video feed and watched them hatch their eggs and saw the fledglings take their first flight.

The cameras that brought the secret lives of eagles into viewers’ homes were courtesy of the Raptor Resource Project, a non-profit dedicated to the preservation of raptor populations and getting the public involved through education.

Bob Anderson, director of the Raptor Resource Project, set up a webcam to capture footage and it went viral, captivating viewers in 186 countries, making it the most watched live video stream ever.

Since then, equipment has been updated and a red-tailed hawk cam and the first ever turkey vulture cam have also been set up, according to a recent interview with Clint Henderson for the National Wildlife Federation.

The red-tailed hawk cameras are set up in California and the turkey vulture cam will be live this spring at an undisclosed location in Missouri to capture the lives of an otherwise elusive bird.

You can check out live footage of the eagles and red-tailed hawks on Ustream. Visit the Raptor Resource Project for other video feeds.
