Dulles Greenway Eagles

Dulles Greenway Eagles The Dulles Greenway Wetlands has been home to two Bald Eagles since 2005. Welcome to the Dulles Greenway Eagle Cam! This nest is home to two wild Bald Eagles on the Dulles Greenway Wetlands.

Please note, while we hope that all eagles hatched in this nest will grow up healthy and will successfully fledge each season, occurrences including predators, natural disasters, territorial disputes, and sibling rivalry are common and may be difficult to watch

WE HAVE A LEUCISTIC BALD EAGLE SIGHTING. THIS EAGLE'S ABNORMAL COLOR IS CAUSED BY A GENETIC CONDITION CALLED LEUCISM, WHICH PREVENTS PIGMENTS FROM REACHING ITS FEATHERS.

LEUCISTIC BALD EAGLES ARE RARE.

Rosa appears to be gagging but no worries for Rosa. She’s simply casting a pellet which is very typical for eagles after a meal.
A pellet is indigestible food regurgitated by an eagle which consists of fur or feathers.

At 18:11 one of our eagles was found eating a fish on the snag. After the sunset the cams IR came on. This caused the eagle's eyes to glow. Then at 18:41 it flew off to its roost tree.

Martin is smiling "ear to ear" when he delivers his first cornstalk of the season. No doubt, the first of many. 😄

Eagle Cam Friday – I am the Dominate Deer

We see more than Eagles on the Dulles Greenway Eagles live-stream camera. Over the last week we have seen Turkey and Coyotes. We even got a glimpse of two male Deer (Bucks) with antlers locked in a battle of will to see who is dominate. See the full recording here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNdyPfS2lBc

Late morning visit by both. Martin moves some sticks on the nest and shows us his clear eye. Rosa perches on the cam branch near her nest.

Eagle Friday – We See More Than Just Eagles
.
The cameras on the Dulles Greenway Eagles nest gives us a birds-eye-view from an approximately 140-foot tall tree. We get to see beautiful sunrises, squirrels eating hickory nuts from the tree, people raising the cameras for us, and we even got a glimpse of a frog one night!

Eagle Friday – We See You
.
We turned the camera on briefly this week to see if the Dulles Greenway Eagles were still near the nest. We were excited to see Rosa, Martin and Orion doing well. We also saw another Eagle that is approximately 4 years old hanging out on the snag tree too.
Eagle Cam Friday – Improving the Viewer Experience
While the Dulles Greenway Eagles live-feed camera is off we are busy behind the scenes planning, coordinating, and executing work that will improve your viewer experience.

We are:
- Raising the height of both cameras so we get a better view of the eggs and hatched eaglets.
- Installing two additional solar panels which will greatly improve our ability to harvest energy from the sun, especially during the short winter days, so we can keep both cameras rolling.
- Installing a new chat platform to enhance our communications with you.

We plan to turn the live feed back on in late September or early October. In the meantime, we are accepting volunteer applications to become part of the remote Dulles Greenway Eagle Cam Team. https://loudounwildlife.org/2021/11/volunteer-for-eagle-cam/

Here is what our 2021/2022 Season volunteers had to say about being a part of the team:

“I greatly increased my knowledge of eagles. I also have to say that I loved the deep connection I developed with Rosa, Martin and Orion and the interactions with other eagle lovers in chat and on social media.”

My most favorite thing was “Watching & learning how the eagle survive in the wetlands.”

We have a “Great team of volunteers and staff” and “The volunteers have great energy and the cause itself is rewarding.”

I enjoyed the “Freedom to help viewers understand eagles” and “Watching the eagle grow up.”

“I enjoyed working with the other volunteers. Everyone was enthusiastic and helpful.”
.
We look forward to having you join us.

Eagle Friday – A Unique View of Off-Nest Behavior
.
Our Eagle Cam Volunteers said the Dulles Greenway Eagles Cam offered a unique opportunity to watch Rosa and Martin put Orion through skills training. Thanks to the camera that we can move to view the snag tree, we got to observe this off-nest behavior. Most other Eagle Cams focus on the nest only and are not able to offer this unique view of parental training.

The 2022/2023 Eagle Cam Season will start in October so apply now to become part of the volunteer team! https://loudounwildlife.org/education/eagle-cam/

Eagle Friday - Breakfast Delivery
.
Dulles Greenway Eagles juvenile Orion brings his/her own breakfast to the nest on June 29 at 6:03 am!
.
Eagle Cam Volunteers were excited to see this event the day before the cameras were turned off until October. Rosa and Martin are good parents and have taught (or are teaching) Orion everything he/she needs to know to be independent.
Eaglet Orion 2022❤️ May you fly high with safe winds under your wings and plenty of food to continue to grow into a beautiful Eagle with a family of your own one day 🦅
Dulles Greenway Eagles VA.
Momma Rosa was so patient this evening, waiting for Orion to arrive to the nest for the dinner she brought in. Orion flew in and fussed at her, Rosa is careful how she approach's her young eagle. Orion bites her wing, leg & at her trying to get her off its nest. An eagle must do what an eagle does, Orion is doing it well. Sweet Rosa! Side by side at about 13 weeks old, Orion looks closer to Momma's size!
Live camera is back up - Thank you so much - Now we can see you Orion!!
🦅❤️ Congrats Eaglet Orion on your return back to nest after fledge ❤️🦅

While there have been resident Bald Eagles in the Dulles Wetlands since 2005 and at this nest in prior years, we do not know if this year’s residents, Martin and Rosa, have been here before. Some observers believe that Rosa may be a first-time mother. Martin and Rosa arrived in the fall of 2021 and added sticks and fluff to the nest.
The Dulles Greenway Wetlands has been home to two Bald Eagles since 2005. In 1995, TRIP II established a private 149-acre wetlands preserve in Leesburg, Virginia during the construction of the Dulles Greenway roadway to mitigate the loss of roughly 64 acres of federally protected wetlands. Today, the wetlands property is managed by the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy and utilized for local wildlife education.

Wetlands shelter more than one-third of threatened and endangered species in the United States, including once-endangered bald eagles.
