A live webcam feed of an eagle’s nest in Iceland is now online.
The nest, located in Gilsfjörður, previously went online last week but the site crashed under the weight of the number of visits it received. Well, good news: the eagle cam is back online.
The project is the work of Bergsveinn Reynisson and Signý M. Jónsdóttir, a married couple from Gróustaður in Gilsfjörður, and the founders of the Icelandic Eagle Centre.
Eagles in Iceland lay and hatch eggs in the spring. This particular female eagle is expected to hatch her young in about four weeks if all goes well. The webcam broadcasts in real time, refreshing itself every five seconds.
