An unknown figure is captured walking below the nest of a pair of Michigan bald eagles on the CarbonTV Eagle Cam.
Social media is abuzz recently with a clip from a camera mounted to a tree near the Platte River State Fish Hatchery, about 30 miles west of Traverse City, placed there to highlight a bald eagle nest. In the footage, baby eaglets peep in the nest, while on the forest floor below, walks through what some think is Bigfoot.
The live-cam clip was highlighted on the website of CarbonTV.com, a Bingham Farms-based company that specializes in online video content related to the outdoors, and on its YouTube channel. The company partnered with the state Department of Natural Resources to install the eagle cam on state land adjacent to the fish hatchery. It went live last March.
The clip includes a pop-up window zooming in on whatever is roaming below the nest. A dark figure — walking on two legs too much to be a bear — can be seen moving up a wooded slope, pausing on a fallen tree, then leaping down a slope and out of view.
