The group behind the effort to watch and safeguard the bald eagles of Centerport are raising funds to buy a new live eagle cam.
“We would like to get a much stronger camera that allows the viewers a closer look at a pair of bald eagles and their daily lives,” the group says. “We hope to have this in place when new eaglets are born this spring – Help us achieve this goal that everyone can benefit from!!!”
The pair of eagles that nested near Mill Pond and their two babies attracted enormous attention and drew fans from around the area to photograph or simply watch the adults and their eaglets as they grew and learned to fly from the nest. Their Facebook page has grown to more than 10,000 users.
Rob Schwartz, who organized the group, created the GoFundMe page last week.
