The Fort St. Vrain Eagle Cam
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.

If the birds are not in the nest you can enjoy the sounds of ducks, birds and tons of frogs that frequent the marshy area below the nest site. There's sometimes quite a lot of racket! During summer and fall the links to the cameras may be offline for maintenance.
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 a wind storm in the summer of 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! The birds seem completely at home in their reconstructed nest.
