Duke Farms eagle + eaglet webcam

Recommended Posts

Duke Farms is an estate in Hillsborough NJ once occupied by Doris Duke. In recent years some of the gardens have been open to visitors, and an educational center has been constructed across Duke Parkway. Part of that center involves a camera focused on an eagle's nest.

 

Recently (March 25) two eggs hatched, both eaglets have been seen on camera. Apparently they were also seen by a passing red tailed hawk who stopped in to check out a prospective lunch. The mother eagle ripped up the hawk and his remains are visible in the nest. The eaglets are also visible on occasion.

Duke Farms is a pleasant day trip, relatively convenient to several restaurants in Somerville's growing restaurant scene.

Thanks! There used to be a nest of peregrine falcons on 55 Water Street, with a live webcam, but I believe the birds left last year. :sad:

 

But a warning: watching the red-tailed hawk fly-by is not for the delicate. :ph43r:

The eagle family has announced the birth of three chicks (on their blog, of course). The third was hatched earlier today, with the others earlier in the week.

 

The group has been prolific, with one or two chicks each prior year.
