Sources tell KNIA/KRLS News that an eagle cam is coming to Marion County, and that it is currently being placed at an undisclosed location on the shores of Lake Red Rock. The official name of the cam is the “Gladys Black Eagle Cam and Educational Video Project.” Black, known as “Iowa’s Bird Lady,” was from Pleasantville, and is probably Iowa’s best known ornithologist and naturalist. The project is the result of the collaboration of many local groups, and details regarding that collaboration will be released soon. In addition to the cam, one of the purposes of the project is to provide educational materials related to the eagles, the lake, and local ecosystems.
The details of the location of the cam are not being disclosed for the protection of the eagles. KNIA/KRLS will bring you more information as soon as it becomes official.
