Great site. Thanks for the link Frog.

I also found this.
http://www.briloon.org/ed/eagle/

I looks like it may be the same pair from a different angle.

The video is not as good but they have a collection of archived images which can be saved.

This is the best eagle cam I've seen -- such a closeup view! Watching the "changing of the guard" was very cool (such strange sounds they made before the one that had been egg-sitting flew off to eat). The forum mentioned "The eagles nest is beside a quiet road next to a beach. There are houses around it and people working...." Hopefully that means that the chain saws are being used by people some distance away, and not timber cutting.

It's great to see things like this. I've spread the word about this cam, and every forum I've posted the link on, is now captivated by it. We don't have many large birds of pray in the UK, so it's a treat to see them.
Our kids are off school at the moment, but I will be giving the school the link so they can watch it in the classrooms on the interactive projection boards (what ever happened to blackboard and chalk? )

Thanks to msfrigyfrog for the original link, and here is a bit more info some of the other forums have found

OK Craig, go to Windows Media Player/tools/options. Click on the performance tab. Then drag the video acceleration slider back about half way. (Reduce Vid Acc. by half.) Click apply or ok. Then try CNTRL-i or alt-prnt screen. Should now save a still of any video running on WMP. If it's a movie it's best to still-frame it before saving to avoid blur and get the exact still you want.

and steve, control i wont do it and neither will alt print screen. all i get is the same sort of thing i was getting the other ways.

Now, if someone knows how to play a DVD movie, which is poor quality and enhance at the same time then save it, then re-record it to DVD, please let me know.

I have movie maker, Sonic, and WMP to work with.

I loaded the url into Windows Media Player 10 "File->Open url" and the feed showed up after less than a minute. When I tried "Alt-printscreen", I got only the viewer minus the eagle cam when I pasted into Photoshop BUT when I checked my Windows clipboard -- I found it was running the live feed! Craig, I've never seen that before, but I've never looked for it before either. However, when I use only "Printscreen", I am able to get the screen capture into PShop.

Two more weeks (plus a couple days or so) and we'll see babies!

Added the image of the eagle vocalizing -- not sure if it's telling its mate to hurry up and come back for its shift, or yelling at one of the other birds callng the background...
