SWFL Eagles ~ INCREDIBLE! Watch The EXACT Moment Egg #2's External Pip Happens! ?? In SLOMO! 1.22.21

1/23/2021

Lady Hawk This was an incredible moment caught on the live webcam today! As Harriet was getting ready to roll the eggs and resume her incubation, egg #2 breaks the external shell and pips right in view! We actually get to experience the moment when the egg tooth pierces the shell and turns an internal pip into an external pip at 2:15:07 PM (3:40 timestamp). In regular time and in slomo!! I must admit that is a pretty cool moment to have been caught on cam! Double egg-citing day for Harriet and M15!! Who will hatch first? Stay tuned! Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ Amazing! TWO PIPS SAME DAY! E18 Is On Its Way! Pantry Is Stocked w/ Squirrel 1.22.21

1/23/2021

Lady Hawk This has been one of the most amazing days! This morning egg #1 pipped and now egg #2 has also pipped on the same day! We got our first confirmed view of E18 on its way at 4:51 PM this afternoon. What a great testament to the excellent job Harriet did with delayed incubation - now we will see both eggs hatch perhaps on the same day! Right before we saw the pip on egg #1 this morning, M gets off the eggs and flies off and we see Harriet flying in to the attic with a squirrel (yes a real one and not Stuffie!) M lands on the outer attic as Harriet drops down to the nest and puts the squirrel off to the side for later and goes to incubate the eggs. The pantry is now stocked for the hatchlings! Harriet and M15 are certainly experienced pros and what an amazing day! Congratulations to Harriet and M15 and to the entire SWFEC family! Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles_ We Have A PIP! 1st Peek At 8:32AM On M15's Watch & Harriet Away On Break 01-22-21

1/22/2021

wskrsnwings M15 & Harriet exchanged incubation duties very early this am. Harriet perched on the pasture snag briefly before flying on to the power poles at dawn. Fog enveloped the area shortly after that but cleared as the sun rose above the horizon. From the ground I could see M15 get up off the eggs, stretch his wings and look down at the eggs. I looked over to my iPad where I usually have the nest cam on (when at the nest) and saw the pip on Egg #1 at 8:32! What a wonderful moment! And thank you M15 for showing us! H remained on the power pole while I was there and M continued to incubate.

SWFL Eagles ~ Owl Strike On M15!!! Poor Dad Gets Knocked Off Attic Again! 1.21.21

1/22/2021

Lady Hawk The footage begins with our normal sweet change over with M incubating the eggs and Harriet dropping down to take over for the evening. M will head to the attic and less than five minutes later, the owl will strike again and knock M off the outer attic! M recovers and lands on the attic fortunately. Harriet is alerting loudly on the nest as the owl is still flying around the area. M flies down to the nest to protect Harriet and stays on the nest for ten minutes until the threat is over. Poor Dad to have these attacks almost every night with the owl trying to evict him from his territory. This is not something we want to see with the hatching of their chicks soon! Stay safe eagle family. Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ Harriet Chases Off Sub Adult Trying To Land On Attic! M Alerts & Protects Eggs 1.21.21

1/21/2021

Lady Hawk M is incubating the eggs when he suddenly begins with warning vocals. Harriet flies in to the outer attic as a sub adult eagle with landing gear down tries to land on the attic branch. Harriet chases the SA off but it circles around and comes back for a second attempt to land. M is up off the eggs with wings outstretched and alerting and Harriet immediately chases it off again. M will continue to sound warning vocals as he joins Harriet on the attic to make sure the eagle is out of their territory. Harriet will return to the nest to take over incubation as M will fly to the pasture snag. The SA looked to be about 3 years old.?? Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ M Brings Harriet a Straw Hat! Puts Big Clump Of Grass On Her Head! Pip Watch ?? 1.20.21

1/21/2021

Lady Hawk Pip watch continues as we wait to see that first crack or pip in egg #1. M is incubating the eggs and gets up and we have a good look at the beauties. Harriet will also be looking and listening to the eggs as well. Notice how carefully she steps around the eggs with her talons! Later in the day, M will fly in at 8:08 with a big clump of grasses and puts them right on Harriet's head at 9:19 ! lol It is like he brings her a straw hat!! She gets up and the grass falls on the eggs. M pulls the grass off the eggs and then he gets what he wanted all along - more incubation time! ?? Harriet heads to the outer attic without her hat!

SWFL Eagles ~ TWO Great Horned Owl Strikes On M15! Harriet In Full Defense Mode! 1.20.21

1/21/2021

Lady Hawk Tonight the GHO (great horned owl) did a double strike on M. The first strike did not knock M off the branch but put him on extreme alert. Harriet vocalizes on the nest suddenly on alert as well. A couple minutes later, the owl returns and strikes M hard and this time does knock him off the attic. M recovers & gives chase and Harriet goes on immediate defense mode spreading her wings to protect the eggs & alerting loudly. M flies back to the attic quickly and is vocal as the owl is still in the area. Harriet will finally settle back down on her eggs as M is located in the outer attic as a sentinel guarding his family. Stay safe M and Harriet and eggs! Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ Super Dad M ?? Stubborn Rebel! Refuses To Let Harriet Back On Eggs! ?? 1.19.21

1/19/2021

Lady Hawk M15 is one of those super eagle Dads who loves to incubate his eggs! He is seen incubating at night (Harriet has been allowing him evening egg privileges!) and around 2:40 AM Harriet drops down to take over and wakes him up! But M does not want to get up so Harriet goes back up to the attic. She will come back down later while M was all tucked in and tries once again. After some persistence, she convinces M to give up his spot on the eggs. Our Super Dad is stubborn and determined and comes back down at 6 AM and gets his egg time again. Harriet comes back a half hour later and this time M refuses to get off the eggs. He seems to just ignore her aerating all around him and gently poking him. She even steps on his tail - which gets him up but he goes right back on the eggs! After nearly 15 minutes of waiting, Harriet gives up and lets him incubate. ?? M will have egg duty all morning long and finally at 11:45 AM Harriet will return with a stick! That trick worked and M gets up and heads to the attic and finally our sweet Mom gets to incubate her precious eggs. Harriet and M are exceptional eagle parents and they devotion and hard work is about to pay off in the hatching of their chicks in just a few days! Thank you for watching!

1/19/2021

JCsEagleCottage It's 2:30 pm, mom is on the nest as dad flies in with grass. Mom gets up and flies off from the outer attic branch. Dad rolls the eggs and aerates. After a while mom comes back and lands in the attic. Dad up and also to the attic. Both vocalizing.. Dad to the outer branch and mom to the nest. Dad looks beautiful with the low sun on him. Dad leaves the the tree and flies to the pine tree across the street. Mom up, rolls the eggs and repositions a few times. At 6:30 pm, dad is still gone, a juvenile Eagle flies in and lands in the nest tree above the nest. Mom vocalizes but stays down to protect her precious eggs. Dad arrives about a half hour later and lands in the attic. Juvie is still there. Both, mom and dad vocalizes but Juvie doesn't move. At 7:34, dad decides it's enough and flushes the Juve out...

SWFL Eagles ~ Visiting Juvie Lands In Nest Tree! ???? Perches Comfortably Until M Chases Off 1.18.21

1/19/2021

Lady Hawk A juvenile eagle flies in at dusk and lands on the upper branch of the nest tree. Harriet vocalizes on the nest briefly but then settles down. The juvie looks very comfortable up there - makes me wonder who this might be ???? Could this be one of the E's? We will never know for sure. The juvie settles in and a half hour later M arrives to the outer attic vocalizing. Harriet joins in as they have a discussion on their nest visitor! After a short time, all is quiet and it looks like the juvie might spend the night but then M decides no overnight visitors at this time and chases the juvie off! He then returns to the nest tree and Harriet settles back down on the eggs. The juvie was not a threat and only was looking for a place to sleep but Harriet and M are not taking any risks with their eggs this close to hatching. Thank you for watching!
