Eagle F.A.Q:
– Who are these eagles? Liberty & Justice!
– How old are they? We believe they are between 19-21 years old
– How long have they been nesting here? We believe they have been nesting here since about 2004.
– When will we see eggs? Mating starts in mid-December, with eggs expected in January, then hatching in March/April
– How many eggs can we expect? Anywhere from none to three!
– I don’t see any eagles?! They are probably off fishing! The Potomac river is less than a mile away. Tune in early in the morning and right before sunset for the most activity.
– Why are they bringing sticks? They are preparing the nest for the upcoming mating / nesting season!
– What do they eat? Mostly fish, but we do occasionally see other small animals like squirrels and raccoons being brought.
– What about lead and lead poisoning? Please see this article and help educate on the problems with using lead based bullets: https://www.nps.gov/pinn/learn/nature
– Liberty has left the eggs unattended for a long time! Are they okay?!
Yes! Check out this link for more information: https://raptorresource.blogspot.com/2014/02/eggs-and-cold-weather.html

Camera F.A.Q:
– Is this actually live? YES!
– Is this the real audio? YES!
– Can we move the camera? Sure! The moderators (wrenches) can take requests to move the camera!
-I’m on Mobile / Tablet and can’t see Camera 2?! Ugh! WE KNOW! YouTube (for some reason) does not support multi-cam live streams on mobile / tablet devices. HOWEVER, there is a slight work-around. If you are on mobile and are using Chrome (standard on Android), make sure that the setting for “Desktop Site” is selected. This will request the desktop version of the stream allowing for multi-cam support.
