The nest is located in the backwaters of the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge near Lock and Dam 13, Fulton IL. There is audio with this camera so turn on your speakers.

We have had many questions in regard to the trio nest. A FAQ page was developed to help answer those questions. We also added answers to many general bald eagle questions.
Update: 10/5/2017 We are hoping to have the Cam back online early November. The males have been back to the nest with a new female. There is little activity at the nest right now. Occasionally they all will come with sticks to the nest. This is part of pair bonding or should we say trio bonding. We are very hopefully for another trio nest this year.
