A live view of the Two Harbors Bald Eagle nest on Santa Catalina Island, California.The nest is active from February through July. Watch the eagles in their natural nesting habitat as they lay, tend to, and hatch their eggs!
**Note ~ Bald eagles have made an amazing recovery from the brink of extinction due in large part to the DDT ban, legal protections and habitat restoration. From a dismal mid-1960s population of about 450 breeding pairs in the lower 48 states – including only five in Texas – the birds have recovered to about 10,000 breeding pairs in the lower 48 states, with roughly 156 pairs in Texas. The bald eagle was removed from the endangered species list in 2007.
