The camera will follow the daily activities of a pair of bald eagles that built the nest.

Records show bald eagles have inhabited Lake Pleasant since at least 1979, with the first documented nesting attempt occurring in 1984. No young were produced until 1993, but 28 birds have since survived to take their first flight.

Arizona's bald eagle population has increased significantly in recent years.

It is the fourth species followed by Arizona wildlife officials on a live cam. The department also livestreams sandhill cranes in southeastern Arizona, a bat roost at Cluff Ranch Wildlife Area and an underwater pupfish cam.
