White-tailed eagle nest will soon be back on cam

If everything goes as planned, the livestream of the Durbe white-tailed eagle nest will be restored this week, ornithologist Jānis Ķuze told LSM on July 11.

The visibility of the online camera provided by the Latvian Fund For Nature was compromised in May when one of the newly hatched eaglets threw a precise shot of natural excretion at it. 

Since the rains have not improved the visibility so far, the camera will have to be cleaned manually. It has been risky so far while young birds were still in the nest, since a human visitor might distress the parents. 

“At least one of the babies is already flying, usually it is about 80 days old,” the ornithologist said. The two young birds may both have left the nest, since the interval between departure is usually a few days.

Three eggs were laid in the eagles' nest in Durbe this summer. Eaglets hatched from two eggs.
