The eagle cam is back online at Seabright Farms and the nesting pair are incubating two eggs.
The camera was off while the pair, Skye and Kyte, raised a pair of eaglets last year before heading north in late summer. Rodents had chewed through the cables and the camera could not be fixed while the eagles were in residence.
The camera was fixed over the winter and will hopefully provide an opportunity watch Skye and Kyte raise this year’s chicks up close but from a safe distance.
With the development near Paul’s Road on the old McLennan Farm, Skye and Kyte got their names from songs by the Beatles: “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” and “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite.” Last year’s eaglets were Lennon and McCartney, or Lenny and Mac. This year Seabright is inviting the public to submit their ideas.
“Potential names are wide open, but when people find out Mom and Dad eagles are named Skye and Kyte, there may be some interesting twists on Beatle songs,” said developer Wayne Knowles.
