Hornby eagles return to the Internet

The Hornby Eagle Group Projects Society (HEGPS) has brought the famous Hornby Island Eagles back to the Internet.

The new Hornby Eagle cam made its debut on April 20.  Viewers watched as the eagles shared incubation duties on the nest.  The audience also enjoyed new views of the surrounding area.  A few days later, on April 25, viewers were treated to the sight of Dad Hornby bringing a fish to Mom Hornby.  To the delight of those watching, Mom then began to engage in what appeared to be the feeding of a newly hatched eaglet!  HEGPS has a video of the activity from the cam stream posted at its YouTube site here: www.youtube.com/user/HornbyIslandEagles?feature=watch.

The Hornby Eagles have nested in the same tree since 1989 and have successfully fledged 20 eaglets. This season, fans will be treated to a different view of the nest.  A new cam system, mounted high in a neighbouring tree, provides viewers a new look at the eagles and their environs.

The new Hornby cam is available at the HEGPS website cam page www.hornbyeagles.com/webcam.htm as well as on Ustream at www.ustream.tv/channel/hornbyeaglecam.
