The eagles must love it too — here they are on their nest Sunday morning in Port Tobacco River Park. If all goes well we will be able to watch them through their upcoming breeding season. They successfully raised two chicks in each of the last two seasons! You can watch the nest at wildstreaming.com
Join the Port Tobacco River Conservancy and Southern Maryland Audubon Society on Thursday, November 15, beginning at 6:30 p.m., at a public program for everyone who wants to learn about the new eagle cam, and especially for anyone who wants to volunteer to be a nest monitor.
Chris Eberly, Director of the Bird Conservation Partnership, will explain why nest monitoring is important and describe the statewide eagle nest monitoring program he leads.
John Snow, Charles County Chief of Parks, will tell us about the support the County is providing for the project.
Ryan Abrahamsen, President of Terrain360, who installed the eagle cam, will describe how it works and how we can capture, record, and post the thrilling events in the life cycle of the nesting eagles during the coming months.
And Lynne Wheeler, President of the Southern Maryland Audubon Society, will explain how you can be a monitor and help capture the moments that will make the eagle cam a wonderful educational experience for everyone in Charles County and beyond.
The program will be held at the Historic Port Tobacco Courthouse, 8430 Commerce St, Port Tobacco MD 20677. Complimentary light refreshments, beer, wine, and soft drinks will be served. The program is free and open to the public.
