Welcome to the online home of Carolina Raptor Center's Bald Eagle nesting pair – Savannah and Derek Eagle! Thanks to a partnership between Carolina Raptor Center and WCNC, throughout the next few months, you should be able to watch these two build their nest, lay eggs, sit on the nest, hatch and raise their young. Sometime in March or April, they will be moved to a tower out in the woods, a camera will follow them there for the last few weeks but understand that the picture there won't be as good because of the lack of power out there.

Carolina Raptor Center is dedicated to environmental stewardship and the conservation of birds of prey through education, research, and the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned raptors. As a charitable 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, CRC relies on public financial support to fulfill our mission. Supporters can release a raptor, adopt a bird, make a charitable donation, purchase a membership or sponsor a capital improvement project. CRC's environmental education programs reach approximately 25,000 students each year. Our Raptor Trail hosts more than 40,000 visitors a year. The raptor hospital admits over 700 birds a year, releasing approximately 70% of those that make it through the first 24 hours.
