wskrsnwings - At dawn, Harriet & M15 dropped to the nest to aerate and move nest material around. M15 laid in the nest bowl too and Harriet gave him one of her looks and pecks. M15 flew to the NW early while Harriet watched their territory. At sunrise, Harriet flew across the road to have a discussion with a neighbor eagle perched on the cell tower. Satisfied, Harriet flew into the trees and grabbed a huge stick to bring back to the nest. M15 had returned and was perched in the attic, dropping down to help Harriet place the stick. Harriet flew to the west pasture for another stick, bringing back a very long curved stick. She rested and regripped the stick in a front pine before returning with it. M15 then flew after a group of cattle egrets in the west pasture and almost caught one. Good job today, Harriet & M15. It is great to see them so strong and healthy on this first official day of Bald Eagle nesting season in FL (Oct 1 - May 15). Thank you SWFEC, hosted by Dick Pritchett Real Estate, for providing & maintaining suitable trees & environment for this Bald Eagle Family. www.SWFLEagleCam.com Thank you to Dick Pritchett Real Estate (SWFEC), Church of the Nazarene, Eagle Landing & several friends for allowing me to film on their premises.
