The live Eagle Cam is made possible through the combined efforts of the Colorado Division of Wildlife, Xcel Energy, the employees of the Fort St. Vrain power station (where the nest is located), and the Raptor Resource Project who designed and built the original nest-cam system.

The FSV eaglecam was the first eagle nest camera on the Internet.  It was built in about 2003 by Bob Anderson, the founder of the Raptor Resourse Project, Rob MacIntyre (electrical engineer) with the assistance of Jesse Brungardt and others from the staff of  the Fort St. Vrain Power Station.

The eagles are most active in their nest from early winter to mid February, when the eggs are ususally laid, through June when the eaglets fledge.  The parent birds and eaglets may frequent the nest occasionally throughout the year.

The nest was mostly destroyed when a branch gave way in 2020.  However, Bill Heston from the power station and John Howe, the current director of the Raptor Resource Project, made an artificial limb for the tree and rebuilt the nest!  We are hopeful that the birds will accept this reconstructed nest and have a successful season for 2021.
