We are excited to announce that we will soon have an Eagle Cam in the tree where the eagles had their eaglets last year! Earlier this winter, Associate Professor of Biology Doug Robinson climbed the tree to install the camera, and wiring is currently being connected to support a livestream. Check back at msmc.edu/eaglecam to see the stream once it is live!
“Maybe it’s no accident that the eagles have selected MSMC for their home,” Associate Professor of Communications Eric Langstedt pointed out recently. With the eagle being a common symbol of the United States, it seems fitting that the eagles have chosen to nest just a few miles from Washington’s Headquarters, where our nation’s first president spent time during the founding of our country. Mount History students have long enjoyed tours of the facility, located just 1.2 miles from campus, and the eagles’ residence on campus brings this connection full circle.

Thank you to all who voted to come up with campus nicknames for the eaglets! And the winning nicknames are…
Tom and Dom!
