LMC Bald Eagle Live Camera Feed

A FRIENDLY REMINDER - The cameras were installed on September 23, 2021 because Bald Eagle nesting activity is at a minimum this time of year. Check back throughout the Fall and we'll all enjoy their triumphant return!

The Little Miami Conservancy is proud to provide these feeds so the public can learn and appreciate these amazing animals that call our river their home. If you'd like to support this project and other river conservation efforts, please consider making a gift to LMC by clicking the button below:

Comment from Ohio Division of Wildlife: Although bald eagles are no longer endangered, they are still protected under the federal Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. It is illegal to disturb bald eagles. When viewing these majestic birds, remember to respect the animal’s space and stay at least 100 yards away from the animal or nest. Disturbing bald eagles at the nest site could lead the pair to abandon the eggs.
