Visit  The Landings Bird Cam or The Cornell Lab of Ornithology to see live 24/7 video with audio of what is happening in the abandoned eagle’s nest that is atop a pine tree in The Landings.

Then after the hatching, watch the chicks grow and fledge.

The streaming video is made possible thanks to a partnership with Cornell University Lab of Ornithology. The video feed can also be seen on the Georgia DNR site

The cameras have infrared capability, enabling nighttime viewing without disrupting the owls, according to the Savannah Owl Cam @ The Landings web site. Read more here about the owls & how this bald eagle’s nest in The Landings became an owl’s nest.

Follow the owls on Twitter at SavannahOwls
