Southern Bald Eagle
September 19, 2002
This is one in a series of remarkable photos taken in 1992 and the years preceding that documented the daily lives of two of Kennedy Space Center’s most famous residents: The Southern Bald Eagles which inhabited an enormous nest on the Kennedy Parkway North. Each fall, the eagles would take up winter residence in the nest to breed and raise a new generation.

Thanks to a remote-controlled Nikon camera installed yearly in the same pine tree as the nest, the activities of these magnificent birds were recorded on film. In 1992, a rare and unique event was captured by the camera when a second clutch of eggs was laid, even though a healthy eaglet was born a month earlier.
