Eaglenest or Eagle’s Nest Wildlife Sanctuary is a protected area of India in the Himalayan foothills of West Kameng District, Arunachal Pradesh.

It is a part of the Kameng Elephant Reserve. Eaglenest is notable as a prime birding site due to the extraordinary variety, numbers and accessibility of species. Eaglenest derives its name from Red Eagle Division of the Indian army which was posted in the area in the 1950s. Eaglenest was declared Wildlife Sanctuary in 1989 with an area of 218 square kms.
