Eagle Cam at Dulles Greenway Wetlands
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 nest cameras provide live-streamed, high-definition insight into the movements of the eagles. It is an incredible opportunity to raise awareness in the community about the importance of the protection of Bald Eagles living in the heart of Loudoun County. Ongoing updates on the eagles will be posted during the nesting season.
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.
You can view the Eagle Cam on the Dulles Greenway’s website. The website also features a moderated chat function, which allows viewers to comment and ask questions about the Bald Eagles.
Nest Activity Log
What’s happening with the eagles at the nest? Find out by viewing the Nest Activity Log. The log is maintained by one of our Eagle Cam volunteers who details what is going on in the daily lives of the Dulles Wetlands Bald Eagles. (You can also check out what happened last year: Season 1 Nest Activity Log.)
Loudoun Wildlife will play an important role in helping to educate the public on the habits and behaviors of Bald Eagles through remotely operating the two cameras and by moderating the website chat function. We are currently seeking volunteers for this project.
