This season we will catch all the action using three cameras that film the birds 24/7 and stream live video directly to this site.
Camera #1 is positioned six feet above the nesting tree and is equipped with night vision or infrared light, which emits no actual light. The birds do not see or hear anything coming from the camera.
Camera #2 is located approximately 60 feet from the nest and has the ability to capture images of the nest action outside the view of Camera #1.
