Bald Eagles Nest in NJ- Watch Now!- By:Jackie F.

Duke Farms in NJ just had a pair Bald Eagles hatch two eggs on Saturday March 26th. This pair also was there last year and hatched three baby bald eagles. On their website( www.dukefarms.org ) you can watch these parents feed their chicks and everything else that goes on in the nest, live. You can’t see it at night, but it becomes very active towards dusk. The Bald Eagles will stay at the nest with their babies for 11-13 weeks.

Discussion Questions:

1) What do you think more people can do to improve the habitat in NJ for Bald Eagles?

2) Do you think that when watching the live cam you can catch one parent bringing food back to the nest????

(Because I haven’t =] )

  1. Great Job Jackie! People in Nj can improve habitats for Bald eagles. We can try to keep poisonous chemicals out of the trees and places where the birds nest. Not putting chemicals in our trees and our grass will make safe items for the eagles to make nests. If we watch the live cam I think that we can possibly see a parent eagle bring back food. We might need to wait a few minutes though because the birds are not constantly feeding. This article was written really well!

  2. Nice topic! I think more people should litter less to improve the habitat in NJ for Bald Eagles because some litter might blow to the habitat and the Eagles might think it’s food so they eat it and choke on it. I think that when watching the live cam you can catch one parent bringing food back to the nest because the birds have to get their food somehow, and if you keep watching the cam, the parents will eventually leave the nest and come back with food for the nest.
