10/20/2020

Lady Hawk Harriet and M15 engage in bonding on the outer attic while E15 is squeeing, mantling and watching them on the nest! ???? Nestorations are beginning with M bringing in a large stick as seen from cam 2 and the 360 cam! He places it and then picks up the long guard rail and moves that off to the side before flying to the attic. E15 sees Dad and comes flying over squeeing and circles around landing on a branch below the nest. M will fly off and E15 will spend the night perched there. Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles_ E15 Dances On Different Snags & Delivers A Stick To The Nest 10-19-20

10/19/2020

wskrsnwings After Harriet left, E15 flew to several snags in the west pasture dancing on the branches and spike tops, only slipping once and made a nice recovery to another snag there. E15 grabbed a stick and flew with it back to the nest. E15 was "off" again to the DSPS (drive side pond snag) before taking off again, skimming the pond and then up to perch in the office oak. E15 is 102 days old today.

SWFL Eagles_ H & M Are Home Taking Sticks To A West Pasture Snag & E15 Watches 10-19-20

10/19/2020

wskrsnwings Harriet and M15 were seen in the west pasture snag they have been taking sticks too and also perching in this fall. M15 delivered a stick and both placed it in the crotch. There was a bonding attempt. M15 flew south not too long after that. Harriet remained in the west pasture and delivered three sticks to the snag and E15 watched her activity closely, from the nest tree and then the front snag. Harriet was so amazing to watch going at sticks, hanging from them and breaking them off to bring back to what may be the beginning of a second nest. Many eagles have two nests at one time but only use one for laying eggs.

SWFL Eagles ~ Beautiful E15 Closeups At 6.5 Months Old ?? E15's Eyes Starting To Lighten Up 10.16.20

10/18/2020

Lady Hawk E15 is just over 28 weeks old (6.5 months) and we are very fortunate to be able to see the slight changes taking place! Most juvies depart when they are about 4 months old so we do not get to see them at this age. E15's dark brown eyes are starting to lighten up slightly and we can hear changes in E15's vocals. Feather changes will take place after the first molt in the Spring. Here is an excellent guide showing the age progression of the bald eagle from first year to maturity: https://www.featheredphotography.com/blog/2013/01/27/a-guide-to-aging-bald-eagles/ Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ Harriet Brings FLUFF To Nest! ??E15 Almost Goes OVERBOARD Lunging At Mom! 10.16.20

10/18/2020

Lady Hawk Harriet is thinking of nestorations and flies in a with a talon full of fluff! But E15 is on the nest eating some prey and reacts to Harriet's delivery with mantling and squeeing. E15 is protecting her food & wants Mom off the nest so she lunges at her and almost goes overboard gripping the nest with her talons! E15 hangs on and rights herself back up and then mantles the nest for several minutes squeeing lol Harriet had flown off to the OCT. This was almost the start of nestorations! Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ E15's Crop Explosion! ?? Tug-O-Fish With Mom! Harriet Gets To Eat A Whole Fish 10.15.20

10/17/2020

Lady Hawk E15 had just flown in to the attic arriving with this supersized crop! Holy moly E15! What did Dad bring you to eat? We have some outstanding closeups of E15, her face, crop and talons! She is very comfortable relaxing with a foot outstretched! Towards dusk, M15 flies in with a whole fish and E15 and Harriet fly to the nest! E15 mantles and claims it even though she is stuffed to the gills! E15 stays on the nest for over 15 minutes not even touching her fish when Harriet drops to the nest and takes it! E15 tries to get it back and squees at Mom and even shoves her but Harriet is in control of this meal. E15 hops to the veranda and then back down and has a tug-o-fish with Harriet! Harriet wins of course and she continues to eat her fish. E15 will head up to the veranda while Mom eats. When finished Harriet flies off and E15 heads to the attic. We see E15 do a series of crop drops in a rolling manner before going back to sleep. ?? Looks like M is going to have to work overtime keeping both Harriet and E15 fed! Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ ?? E15 & Harriet Defend The Nest From A Sub Adult Intruder! ?? SLOMO! 10.16.20

10/16/2020

Lady Hawk Harriet and E15 defend the nest from a sub adult! Harriet is on the upper branch and E15 on the attic when a sub adult approaches the nest tree is trying to land close to E15. E15 reacts with wings outstretched and alert vocals and almost falls over backwards off the attic as the SA flies right over her! E15 is hanging on by her left talon and is able to pull herself back up. The SA comes back around for a second pass and tries to land on the treetop perch next to Harriet but she was not going to let that happen and chases it off. Harriet lands on the outer attic and the SA flies off across the street and comes back for a third time trying to land on the treetop perch. Harriet flies up there and chases the SA off and it leaves heading west. The whole time E15 was alerting along side Harriet. They worked together to defend the nest - what a team they make!! ?? In regular time and slomo with multicam coverage. Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ M15 Delivers A Bird! Harriet Flies Off With It Before E15 Can Snatch It ?? 10.15.20

10/16/2020

Lady Hawk M flies into the nest with a bird and Harriet is right behind him to claim it. M comes over and takes a piece of it and Harriet squawks and takes it back and starts to defeather her breakfast. All of a sudden E15 can be heard squeeing in route to the nest. Harriet quickly snatches the bird and flies off with it leaving a stunned E15 wondering where her meal went. This was an important lesson that Harriet showed E15 today. Harriet took the prey off the nest showing that the time of this long season may be starting to come to an end for feeding E15. I suspect we will start to see this more frequently in the days ahead now. E15 must learn that it is a very competitive world out there and food will not just wait for her to claim it. E15 will have to hone her survival skills and depend on her own abilities in order to survive and thrive as the apex predator she was born to be! Thank you for watching!

JCsEagleCottage Things go so fast, when E15 landed on the nest it looked like she brought a stick to the nest, but when she landed on the nest she actually grabbed the remains of the fish what looked like she came in with a stick, but she just missed out on the fish..

SWFL Eagles_ We See All Three This AM ~ Tough Love Is Beginning? 10-15-20

10/15/2020

wskrsnwings At daybreak, E15 perched and vocalized from a front pine and Harriet & M15 were not seen. E15 spent time in the front pine, pasture snag and CSPS (church side pond snag, always watchful, before flying to a "hidden" area at the pond. After one of the adults flew through the west pasture, E15 reappeared on the CSPS. Harriet was seen behind the shopping center watching the nest tree and flew there when she saw M15 approaching the nest with food. Harriet beat E15 to the food and flew from the pasture with it. E15 vocalized to M15, flying to him, mantling on the branch. M15 flew from the nest tree and soared above the pasture. E15 was alone again to watch and wait. Perhaps the adults are beginning "tough love" with their 198 day old juvenile?

SWFL Eagles ~ Harriet Eats Opossum Leftovers! Swallows Spine, Tail & Some Pelt Left By E15 ??10.14.20

10/15/2020

Lady Hawk After E15 had finished eating almost the entire opossum, Harriet flies in to the treetop perch and then drops down to the nest to clean up the leftovers from E15. There is not much food left - only the spine, tail and some small piece of pelt from the opossum, but Harriet finds every scrap and eats them. E15 will fly off the porch and land on the office oak. Harriet will go the attic and outer attic and feak her beak. Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ M15 Delivers Opossum! E15 Has A Marathon 2 Hour Lunch & Bulging Crop! ?? 10.14.20

10/15/2020

Lady Hawk M15 flies in from across the street carrying opossum and E15 nearly slips off the attic trying to rush to the nest to claim it lol E15 quickly mantles it and screams and M flies to the attic & then outer attic. E15 mantles the opossum for some time before finally starting to eat. It took E15 2 hours and 20 minutes to finish almost all of it - leaving only the tail, spine and some small pelt (which Harriet will eat later). E15 had a huge bulging crop as she headed to the porch. M is an amazing provider for his family! E15 is 197 days old! Thank you for watching!
