Annual camera maintenance is underway

The camera setup has been removed and all components are being serviced or replaced.
We have a temp. camera looking at the nest streaming from the ground.
We expect to have the cameras back in service by the 26 March 2019.
Sorry for any inconvenience, we are looking forward to a successful 2019 season.

Sea-EagleCAM #2

The BirdLife Australia Discovery Centre is an interactive, interpretive hub that provides opportunities for people to learn about, and engage with, birds in their natural habitat. What better way to do so than by observing our resident pair of White-bellied Sea-Eagles on the nest? EagleCAM, gives bird lovers, researchers and scientists 24-hour access to the lives of nesting sea-eagles and allows us to investigate their habitat, behaviour and how we can help them survive long term.

Established in 2009, EagleCAM (Sea-EagleCAM on Ustream) is a live, remote feed that operates out of the Discovery Centre in the Newington Armory at Sydney Olympic Park, close to the Parramatta River. EagleCAM was started and funded by a small group of BirdLife Australia volunteers, who continue to develop and operate the technology that brings the sea-eagles to your screen.
