Nature does nothing uselessly. – Aristotle

The WCNC EagleCam

For over seven years, Carolina Raptor Center has partnered with WCNC, the NBC affiliate in Charlotte, to provide over 500,000 viewers unique insight into the inner workings of an eagle’s nest. Savannah and Derek Eagle, residents of Carolina Raptor Center’s Eagle Aviary, have been nesting and hatching chicks onsite at CRC since 2005. Not currently broadcasting. EagleCam

The WellsFargo FalconCam

Three years ago, WellsFargo executives noticed that a pair of falcons had taken up residence in a planter on the 40th floor of One Wells Fargo in Charlotte, NC. Fascinated by the process, they wondered what they could do to share this insight into nature with the world. The result was a partnership between building manager Childress Klein, Wells Fargo and Carolina Raptor Center to provide information and a view into this natural process. The birds have returned to the same spot for two more years and have been seen circling the building in 2016. Come back here for more info on this Falcon nest in Uptown Charlotte. Not currently broadcasting. FalconCam

Once cameras are installed in this Rehabilitation Trail enclosure, viewers will have insight into the last step in Carolina Raptor Center’s rehabilitation process – flight training. In this step, owls build up flight muscles in preparation for release back into the wild. Not currently broadcasting. Check back later this summer.
