For months, the website Zooom.no has followed white-tailed eagles located on the island of Smøla– Norway’s second largest island located in the county of Møre og Romsdal.
Almost 50 white-tailed eagle couples nest on Smøla, and Zooom decided to focus on the eagles named Baron Blå (Baron Blue) and Baronesse Barfot (Baroness Barefeat).
They have been together for seven nesting seasons and have previously given birth to three eagle offsprings. In April their fourth, called Solo, arrived.
Zooom has compiled a highlights video from the nest of Baron Blå and Baronesse Barfot and little Solo.
Watch the highlights here:
Birdwatching normally requires skills, patience and physical presence. Too exhausting or unpractical? Lucky for you, Zooom.no lets you bird-watch from your own living room. On their webpage you'll find live around-the-clock broadcasts of wild Norwegian animals in their natural habitats. Particularly birds.
Zooom calls itself “the only channel that will give you a sincere view of what goes on in nature.”
They broadcast wild animals and Nordic nature, including the northern lights, “without the use of censorship or filters”. The Zooom team sees it as their communal responsibility to show the nature as it is, in their words: “beautiful, raw and brutal”.
