The Down East camera is one of two eagle cams maintained by the Biodiversity Research Institute and sponsored by Brookfield Renewable Energy Group, providing an intimate view of eagles.

Patrick Keenan, outreach director of the Biodiversity Research Institute, says the organization hopes to spur interest in eagles, which have 500 nests in Maine. The cameras provide live 24-hour Internet streaming of two different eagle nests.
