IMPORTANT – Please Read

We are thrilled that so many people are excited about our nesting pair of Bald Eagles and their two young, but we must remind you that the nest is on private property. Safely walking along the street is fine, but DO NOT TRESPASS on private property including the empty lot and all property in the area.

Every day, throughout the day, numerous people are walking into the yards of our neighbors and into the woods to the bird’s nest tree. This is trespassing!  It has also been reported that this activity is stressing the birds, the last thing any of us want to happen. Please read the blog we published two weeks ago about “Ethical Birding” to remind yourself of the proper etiquette while birding and photographing wildlife.

Thank you for respecting the property of our neighbors and your safety!

  2. Would it be possible for SIB to set up a link with a camera on the nest like we’ve seen in other locations? That would be neat to monitor our birds on the internet. I have a couple of wildlife cameras, but they will only communicate with my phone. Is there any expertise in this area in SIB? Money?

    1. Hi Don. Thanks for your suggestion. A few of us have discussed the idea. A few hurdles we’d have to resolve including:
      1) The nest is on private property
      2) How to power a Camera (possibly solar)
      3) How to connect to network (possibly cellular)
      4) How to actually position the camera so the nest can be seen – looks to be about at least 50′ off the ground.
      Maybe we can resolve this for a nest someday, but certainly not this nesting season.
