1:34 THE WVEC EAGLE CAM IS LIVE !!!! WHOOOHOOO!!! TELL EVERYONE!!!
Thank you Reese for the updates
🙂 good morning! Now that I know where to find the eagles I feel much better with the cam offline.
thanks again Reese 🙂
Thank you so much, Reese, for going out of your way to keep us updated on our favorite eagle family. We miss the eagle cam !
How do we as viewers tell which is the male and which is the female when they are not on the love branch? Thank you for the updates Reese. Any idea when the cam will be back? Thanks again.
lawson – male is smaller and much darker feathers – female lighter brown feathers, more weathered. Male likely had more recent molt

Monday- In case you haven’t noticed. The Eagle cam is down again. Helen
