“Eagles are wild birds and anything can happen in the wild. The Southwest Florida Eagle Camera (SWFEC) does not interfere or intervene and allows nature to take its course. You will see life and you might see death, but this is nature at her finest.”
Two eggs were laid on Nov 22 and Nov 25 – One Baby eagle (E9) born December 31 2016 in Fort Myers FL.
Adult Eagles: Harriet & M15
The 2016-2017 season is the fifth season looking into this Southwest Florida nest, (Ft Myers). This season we will again catch all the action using three cameras that film the birds 24/7 and stream live video directly to this site.
Camera #1 is positioned six feet above the nesting tree and is equipped with night vision or infrared light, which emits no actual light. Nor does it make any noise. The birds do not see or hear anything coming from the camera. Camera #2 is located approximately 60 feet from the nest and has the ability to capture images of the nest action outside the view of Camera #1. Both cameras are environmentally friendly, non-intrusive and positioned to offer the best view of the nest and birds while preserving the pristine beauty of the nest and their surroundings.
A third camera (Cam #3) is installed closer to the north of the pond, to capture activity happening around the pasture and in the pond area.
•The original adult bald eagles pair, known as Ozzie and Harriet, had been coming to this nest since 2006. After Ozzie’s passing in the early fall of 2015, Harriet & M15 bonded in late fall of 2015. This is their second season as a mated pair at this location.
The nest sits 60 feet above the ground, in a Slash Pine tree.
