About the nest:
This high definition video camera is located about 50 feet above the ground in a eucalyptus tree within a protected nature reserve. The White bellied Sea Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster) is the second largest bird of prey in Australia.
This mating pair of White-Bellied Sea Eagles usually lays two eggs in June and incubates them until they hatch in late July. The young eaglets will then stay in the nest for about 90 days until they are ready to fledge. The eagles get fish from the nearby Parramatta River and surrounding wetlands of Olympic Park until the eaglets are 1-2 months old. Then their diet changes to Silver Gulls of which they catch from a small breeding colony on the wrecks in Homebush Bay. To learn more about this live cam please visit Sea Eagle Cam.org.
1st egg laid 6/8/22, hatched 7/19/22. 2nd egg laid 6/11/22, hatched 7/20/22. White bellied Sea Eagle eggs will hatch after 39-41 days of incubation. So with that said, hatch watch will start on July 15th(Day 38). Remember hatch/lay is always based on local time.
