Hancock County, Maine
did not nest in 2008

Most pictures are from the Maine Bald Eagle Cam Discussion Forum's
thread on the Maine Eagle Cam

Additional info and pictures from the Hancock Wildlife Channel's
thread on the Maine Coast Bald Eagle Cam

The cam is located in coastal Hancock County, and the eagles have nested at this site for 13 years and raised 20 offspring, making them one of the most successful pairs in Maine. This is a beautiful nest on the coast of Maine. They fledged two eaglets in 2006, but had tragedy last season - the weather was brutal right after the chicks hatched and they lost them.

Based on past experience, look for eggs in the first half of March, chicks in mid-April, and fledging in early July.

Summary of 2008 Season:

The parents did some restoration of the nest, and were observed mating.
The female spent the night in the nest on several occasions, but there was no evidence she laid any eggs.
