Here is link to the cam - history of the nest below the cam
http://www.ustream.tv/SouthwestFloridaEagleCam

"History of chicks at this nest...2011/12 - 1 chick, 2010/11 - 2 chicks,2009/10 - 1 chicks, 2008/09 - 2 chicks

The eagles have had their names ever since they moved onto the property in 2007/08. Ozzie and Harriet

The nest resides 60 feet above the ground, in a Slash Pine tree. The camera faces South East.

Nesting season begins here in South FL Oct. 1. The eagles stay until late April or May.

These bald eagles have been coming to this nest for the past 5 years. They reside in this nest between the months of October and April. Before building this nest in 2008, the pair had a nest on the opposite side of Bayshore Road. This location is now known as Eagle Landing. This mature, mating pair continue to make Southwest Florida their winter home.

This year, DPRE is excited to have a live look into their Southwest Florida nest. They have installed a camera that will film the birds 24/7 and stream live video directly to this site. The camera is positioned 6 feet above the nest. It is attached to a tree limb using no screws or nails in order to preserve the tree. The camera's night vision is an 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.

The objective of this camera is to bring these beautiful birds into our homes. The goal of DPRE is to foster appreciation, admiration and respect for these magnificent creatures. Our intentions are to learn from these birds so we may better understand them and their habits.

This nest is labeled LEO26 of the Florida State Monitoring Program. It was monitored for three years. The first year was when the nest was across the street in 2007. The pair relocated the nest in 2008 to its present location and was monitored as well in 2009. There are 133 nests in a 25 mile radius. Closet nest is one mile."

Below are my starting posts from yesterday, 11/26/12.......

3:07 PMI have been watching this nest for a couple weeks now......the pair is Ozzie and Harriet.  love

.....would like to set up a thread for it.   It is a great cam with sound! (Laura, you'll love it!) bigsmile
Their first egg was laid today at 1:47.  Thumbs-up

This is Harriet at 2:30......Ozzie has not come in yet to see the addition to his family.   He was there this morning and brought her a fish.

Here is link to the cam - history of the nest below the cam
http://www.ustream.tv/SouthwestFloridaEagleCam

Nest is in a very busy area as you can see by the traffic.  I was shocked to read that there are 133 nests in a 25 mile
radius! 

Thought I would add this as it is quite relevant to the above post.......

Slideshow starts with Harriet calling for Ozzie.......he came in about 3-4 minutes later.  love
and immediately took over incubation duties and Harriet took off.

Such a reminder that I need to find out what is happening with the St. Marks NWR bald eagles.  I will go tomorrow!  I hope Ozzie and Harriet lay another egg tomorrow!  Was the owl seen again?
