The camera was constructed in the fall of 2014 after observers had witnessed a pair of bald eagles raise and fledge one eaglet, after the other eaglet was killed in a raccoon attack, in a nest in Hays during the 2013-2014 nesting season. A camera was subsequently mounted on a tree about 50 yards from the existing nest. The pair returned for the 2014-2015 nesting season and laid eggs, but the eggs never hatched and the eagles eventually abandoned the nest. Experts blamed the unsuccessful nesting attempt on unusually cold winter weather. The camera was shut down in August 2015 and will remain down until the beginning of the 2015-2016 nesting season.
