Popular webcam birds return to Latvia for yet another season

The hugely popular online streams from birds' nests, which amassed around 3.5 million views last year, are returning this season with live streaming starting from goshawk, osprey, black stork and lesser spotted eagle nests.

Some of the webcams organized by the Latvian Fund for Nature, namely the white-tailed eagle and eagle-owl nests in western Latvia are streaming all year round.

The Fund also just announced plans to add one more webcam at a nest of a lesser spotted eagle nest as well as the first underwater broadcast from spawning grounds of river lamprey.

In particular, the nest of the white-tailed eagle pair in Durbe, western Latvia, has been the greatest hit so far. Built at the top of an old spruce as tall as a nine-story building, it houses the white-tailed eagle couple Raimis and Milda.

The two are currently incubating three eggs, and the chicks are due to hatch in the second half of April.
