Dollywood eagle cam is set to return

SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Dollywood's most famous feathered friends, "Independence" and "Liberty," returned to their home inside the "Eagle Mountain Sanctuary" and once again are inviting fans into their homes.

Tens of thousands have already tuned into the Eagle Nest Cam (click link below) and watched the "fascinating natural intimacy of their daily lives, including the much anticipated arrival of 3 eggs," Dollywood officials said.

"Eagle nest watching has become an on-line obsession for millions of people who are intently interested in the rare opportunity to peer into the otherwise private lives of an All-American eagle family and to experience first-hand the success story about the hard-fought survival of their species," says American Eagle Foundation (AEF) Founder and President Al Cecere, who has dedicated the past 29 years to saving and protecting the iconic birds.

Viewers can choose between four different viewing angles so they don't miss any of the action. The cameras even have night vision so people at home can watch 24 hours a day.

It's the 11th year that the pair have been together at Dollywood. So far, they've produced 27 eggs and 24 eaglets, most of which the park said have been released into the wild.
