Location: The Landings, Skidaway Island
These cameras previously followed great horned owls nesting beside the Palmetto golf course at The Landings, a community on Skidaway Island near Savannah. Using a nest built by bald eagles, the owls raised two owlets in 2015 and two in 2016. However as of February 2017, the owls haven't returned and ospreys have shown interest in the nest, as they did after the owls left last year. Stay tuned!
Note: In September 2016, with the pine tree holding the two nest cameras dead and shedding limbs, operators at The Landings took down the cams, attached a bracket to support the cam on the nest tree and moved the second cam to a nearby pine, while also adding a third cam to that tree. Two of the cams are streamed here; the third is available at The Landings bird cam homepage.
