In September 2021, Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, the American Eagle Foundation and HDOnTap partnered with the Dulles Greenway to install two live-stream cameras at the Bald Eagle nest in the Dulles Greenway Wetlands in Leesburg, Virginia. The Dulles Greenway website hosts the Eagle Cam and features a moderated chat function that allows viewers to comment and ask questions about the Bald Eagles.
A mated pair of Bald Eagles have resided in the Dulles Greenway Wetlands for more than 15 years. In 1995, during the construction of the Dulles Greenway roadway, TRIP II established a private 149-acre wetlands preserve in Leesburg, Virginia to mitigate the loss of roughly 64 acres of federally protected wetlands. Wetlands shelter more than one-third of threatened and endangered species in the United States, including the once-endangered Bald Eagles. Since 1995, the wetlands property has been managed by Loudoun Wildlife and used to educate the public about local wildlife and the habitat it depends upon.
Eagle Cam volunteers play an important role in helping to educate the public on the habits and behaviors of Bald Eagles through remotely operating one of the two cameras and by moderating the website chat function. Complete an Eagle Cam Volunteer Application if you are interested in volunteering with this program.
Use the Eagle Cam donation form to support Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy’s Eagle Cam program. Your donation will help to maintain the Eagle Cam and educate the public on Bald Eagles and their vital wetlands habitat.
