White-tailed Eagle Online Tucholskie Forest

Since 2012, the Eagle Conservation Committee has been popularizing knowledge about their biology and protection thanks to internet cameras at bird nests.

WARNING! We broadcast live without any interference, so some scenes from the life of birds can be drastic for sensitive people.

The online broadcasting from the nest of the white-tailed eagle Haliaeetus albicilla in Bory Tucholskie is a joint project of the Eagle Conservation Committee, Woziwoda Forest District and Polish Radio S.A. promoting the protection of old forests and the largest Polish species of bird of prey — the white-tailed eagle.

The nest and the old forest within a radius of 200m are protected by a year-round protection zone, where no forestry works are carried out. Since white-tailed eagles are extremely cautious, it was only after many years that it was possible to launch the online transmission from the nest of our heraldic species for the third time. Previously, it only happened in the Kutno Forest District (2012) and the Dobrocin Forest District (2013). In the Woziwoda Forest District, members of the ECC placed a camera at the eagles' nest in mid-January 2021, before the birds started breeding, with the consent of the Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection in Bydgoszcz.

The nest from which the transmission is carried out is located on a 140-year-old pine tree at an altitude of about 25 meters and has been occupied by birds for four years. One young man left them in 2021.

Earlier, eagles had been nesting since the late 1990s in a 160-year-old pine forest by one of the mid-forest fish lakes. At that time, they were encouraged to breed by an artificial osprey nest built by KOO volunteers. This nesting place of the white-tailed eagle has existed in the Woziwoda Forest District for at least 25 years!
