It’s simple, Bob receives thousands of letters from viewers who talk about how Bob’s live streaming channels have provide them with tools to educated their young students, provided them with inspiration, helped them through a sickness or death.

These stories have pushed Bob to continue his efforts and provide free access to the amazing lifecycle nesting birds. His most popular camera is the live Decorah Eagle camera receiving more than 250 million views and counting. This is the number 1 most viewed live stream ever.

More about the Decorah Eagle Camera:

The bald eagle is the only eagle unique to North America. Bald eagles were officially declared an endangered species in 1967 in all areas of the United States south of the 40th parallel, under a law that preceded the Endangered Species Act of 1973. In July of 1995, the US Fish and Wildlife Service upgraded the status of bald eagles in the lower 48 states to “threatened.”

    Congratulations, Bob! I have enjoyed watching the Eagles in their nest and thank you for that! However I am not sure about the tracking device you are putting on the young Eagles. These are very sacred birds to the Native Americans. I was wondering if you have consulted any of the Nations of Native Americans in the area to get a take on how they feel about these tracking devices? Also do they have any knowledge of the migration of the eagles? I feel in my heart I need to ask these questions. Sometimes in our enthusiasm we need to take a look at where we are going. Thanks!

    Thank you for all your hard work! Dad and I discovered the Decorah cam last year and enjoy watching them immensely. It’s a great way to spend an hour or so in the evenings during the winter months and early spring. I really LOVE the videos posted of the family as well. You deserve this award!
