Just saw this and was glad to make a donation.  As far as I know, this is the oldest Bald Eagle cam.  I first saw it in March, 2006.  I can't remember who sent me the link!

Sunny,

Many thanks for you contributions and your question.  I am quoting part of the first post in this topic (you can read the whole thing if you click the link).  We had enough to carry us through October this year (2016) and thanks to generous donors, we will be able to extend for  a year beyond that (October 2017).  Time (and donors) will say if we keep going after that ...


January 2016

Our costs for one year currently run at least $5500, distributed between expenses directly related to the webcam and indirect expenses related to hosting the forum and website. Direct cam expenses are roughly $4000 (tree climbs and supplies for cleaning, insurance, technical support, telephone, and internet). Indirect expenses are about $1500 (website and forum web hosting, government registration fees, bank fees, post office box rental, postage, and miscellaneous supplies). This minimal amount does not include funding for any major repairs or potential replacement of the camera system, nor does it cover annual donations to local wildlife rehab facilities or expenses related to wildlife rescues carried out by HEART.

Great to see such a wonderful response to the appeal. One year I used the Hornby Eagles as a project at school. The children kept a diary of the happenings at the nest. There was much sadness at the passing of Phoenix. We all wrote how it made us feel and something we loved about the eaglet, then buried our messages under a big rock and left flowers. One young boy spent the next couple of weeks sitting up on the rock and thinking about her. The eagles have taught us all so much, bless them. I miss Ma and hope she is happy wherever she is, maybe with Phoenix. Thanx so much for all the wonderful pics and videos that you share across the world and big thanx to HEGPS for keeping the camera going. Long may it continue.  :ecsmile :ecsmile :ecsmileWhat wonderful people you all arexxxooo

Thank you for writing about your children and their experience with the Hornby Eagles. They have reached into the souls and hearts of so many. I hope that the children will carry all the good that they learned with them. Thank you also Gillie for being a wonderful teacher.

Gillie, we'd love to see examples of your students' work.  We have a place to share and you can make a page for your former/future classes here:

Thanks such a great idea. Unfortunately the children concerned have left primary school along with their eagle diaries but next year if Dad and Em return I think we will do the Eagle diary again. Hopefully there will be an egg :ecsmile
They will always remain in so many hearts.
