5/15/2021

Lady Hawk The E's had another day of practicing their skills and eating well with several deliveries today of fish, red meat & squirrel. M delivers a piece of red meat and both E's rush to the nest - E17 claims it and flies right off the nest with it. E18 and M15 are stunned wondering what just happened! E17 is seen on the pasture snag and E18 flies off and lands on it but E17 flies off lol For the next delivery, M brings in another piece of red meat only this time E18 is there to claim it and swallow it right away! E17 comes back too late lol They both head to the attic and then they will head over to the west pasture N2 nest. M will be seen flying in with delivery #3 - a squirrel and both E's fly from the west pasture like missiles - E18 first to the nest and E17 right behind! They both battle it out for the squirrel and wings are flying! E17 ends up with the squirrel and eats off of it first. But E18 will make a steal and get a piece as well. As they continue to battle for the prey, E17 knocks E18 off the nest! That is one way to get rid of your competition! lol E18 flies back to the nest to look for nestovers. Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles_ The E's Together Yet Apart - Flights To Each Other Curious & Intrusive 05-13-21

5/13/2021

wskrsnwings E18 was full of energy early this morning, hopping and flying from branch to branch in the nest tree while E17 watched. E17 flew close to perch where E18 was, slipped and flew to the OCT. E17 also did a short fly about appearing to attempt to break a stick off the mossy tree and flew to the DSPS. E18 flew at E17 there and both tumbled apart with E17 going to the hubcap tree and E18 to the pond. They perched on separate branches on the DSPS until the garbage truck passed by sending the E's to other perching areas. Both flew to the west pasture perching and hopping branches by N2 (nest 2). E18 spent time exploring the inside of the nest too. The E's are 110 days old.

SWFL Eagles ~The Adorable E's! E17 Puts A Stick On E18's Back ?? Sibling Cuteness On The Nest 5.12.21

5/13/2021

Lady Hawk The E's are resting on the nest and E18 will do a big stretch and put her leg right in E17's face! E17 gently nibbles on E17's leg feathers and then will find the wishbone stick on the nest and drags it across E18's back and then lay it right on E18's back and puts a talon there for good measure! Nothing like doing some nest redecorating and checking out where to move the furniture! lol ?? E17 takes the stick off E18 and puts it back on the nest. It is hard work fixing up the nest! How does Dad do it so well? They both lie down next to one another and do some cute beaking. They share a special closeness when they are not competing for food - it really is wonderful to see the them enjoy one another. We don't know how much time we will have with them before they leave on their journey but for now we can smile knowing that the past few months has brought tremendous happiness & joy into all of our lives!

SWFL Eagles ~ M15 Brings Prey To The Pond & E18 Gets It! ?? E17 Walks To The Water! 5.12.21

5/12/2021

Lady Hawk M15 brings some type of mammal to the pond area (possibly a squirrel) and E18 & E17 vie for it and E18 gets it. E17 will walk to the water close to Dad - but Dad takes off. E17 will take a drink of water and then come back close to E18 waiting for a steal. All of a sudden something spooks them and E17 flies off first and E18 follows. E17 lands on the CSPS and then will fly to the attic. E18 flew off to eat the prey out of view. About an hour later, E18 flies in to the attic and joins E17 ? E18 goes to the outer attic and then will take off towards the southwest (we get a glimpse of E18 flying) and then E17 will fly off in the same direction and circle around. Both E's continue to stay close to the nest tree and seem to follow one another through out the day. They do share a special bond as siblings which is really wonderful to see. Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ Fish Battle! E18 Grabs It & Flies Off Nest! Loses It To E17 But Steals It Back 5.11.21

5/12/2021

Lady Hawk It was an action packed morning with Dad's fish delivery! The E's are on the attic when Dad flies in with a fish. They both mob him and vie for the fish - E18 grabs it and flies off the nest with it in her beak! A few minutes later E18 returns to the nest without the fish - we see E17 on the ground under the hubcap tree so E17 got the fish. Then E18 flies off the nest and the next thing we see is E18 eating the fish on the DSPS! So E18 stole the fish from E17! E18 then flies back to the nest and E17 follows landing on the attic. E18 eats the fish while E17 waits for an opportunity to steal. E18 ate most of the fish by the time E17 drops to the nest and manages to grab a piece and eat it. Great job today by both E's!

SWFL Eagles_ Life Lessons: Rock‘Em-Sock‘Em In The Air-Nest-West Pasture 05-11-21

5/11/2021

wskrsnwings Wow! Rock‘em-sock‘em between these two in the air, west pasture and the nest. E17, attempting to land, was knocked out of the nest by E18, already in the nest and waiting. Tumbling through the branches, E17 recovered just above the ground. This morning the E's, now considered juveniles, continue to prepare for life out on their own. Both seemed to want the area for themselves to help make sure any food provided would be solely theirs. E17 & E18 are 108 days old.

5/11/2021

Lady Hawk E17 & E18 were both perched side by side on the hubcap tree overlooking the pond this morning when three horses moseyed over to get a drink! The E's watch them from their penthouse perch taking in this incredibly idyllic setting at the pasture pond! To see the siblings together experiencing this whole new world that has opened up to them since fledging is beautiful ?? E17 then flies to the ground and walks along the water's edge and takes a bath as E18 is watching! E17 then flies to the DSPS (drive side pond snag) and dries off those wings & does a bit of wind surfing! Every day we have watching the E's is precious as we don't know how much longer they will remain here before they head out on their journey. Seeing them together like this is special and we will always remembers these days with a smile! ? Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ E18 Flies Into Nest With A Squirrel! Blocks E17 & Swallows Pelt! 5.10.21

5/10/2021

Lady Hawk E18 comes flying back to the nest carrying a squirrel!! Most likely, E18 found this on the ground left over by Dad for them to find and fly off with it. E17 flies into the nest right behind E18 and they battle it out - E18 retains possession of the prey. Each of these encounters that the E's have is providing good practice on keeping and securing their meals - a lesson that will be paramount to survival when they are on their own. Both of the E's have now learned how to fly with prey in the talons! Each day with Harriet and M provides them learning opportunities that will help in their survival in the wild.

SWFL Eagles ~ Mother's Day Fish Fest! E18 Eats 3 Out Of 4 Fish Delivered! ?? Enormous Crop! ?? 5.9.21

5/10/2021

Lady Hawk It was a very good day of feasting for E18! M delivers four fish (two of them were filleted!) E18 claims and eats the first two fish and successfully blocks E17 from stealing them. E17 claims the third filleted fish and eats off of that for quite some time. E18 is back on the nest and gets the 4th delivery (another filleted fish) and eats her fill on that fish. E18 rests on both the spike and then the attic with this enormous beach ball sized crop! No flying for E18 being so top heavy this afternoon! ?? Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ The Battle For The Headless Fish! E18 Makes A Big Steal! ?? ?? 5.8.21

5/9/2021

Lady Hawk The E's are both on the attic when they see Dad flying overhead with a fish! Crows take off from the nest and are seen following him as he makes his way to the nest! Both E's jump down screaming and mantle and battle it out for the fish! Dad gets out of the way - E18 got the fish first but then E17 claims it. Seems like Dad was fishing at the headless fish pond again! ?? E18 waits for that golden opportunity to nab the fish and at 6:07 makes a big steal and ends up with the fish! Now that was impressive! E18 eats the fish and then Harriet flies in and E17 drops to the nest thinking another delivery but she came in empty taloned. E18 blocks a steal attempt from E17 and continues to eat the remainder of the fish! Both E's will be seen roosting closely together for the evening - they look beautiful next to one another!

SWFL Eagles_ Elusive & Energetic Juvies 17 & 18... 'Spot On' Flights & Maneuvers 05-09-21

5/9/2021

wskrsnwings E17 & E18 and H & M all flew to the west pasture snag early this morning. Harriet had "heard" enough with the E's frequent vocals and flew to a pine across the road. M15 flew NW. The E's flew back and forth in the west pasture trees, sometimes after each other and sometimes after small birds. They also fought over who could perch where... all the while watching for an adult with food. Both flew across the road and over yonder pond with one E soaring for several minutes. Food must have been dropped out of my view as E17 was eating something in a crotch below Nest 2 in the west pasture while E18 looked on. It was another morning of honing their survival skills. The E's are 106 days old today.

SWFL Eagle ~Harriet Delivers Squirrel & Both E's Rush In! E17 Flies Off w/ Squirrel In Talons 5.8.21

5/9/2021

Lady Hawk This time Harriet is the provider and flies in to the nest with a squirrel! E18 is flying in right behind her and claims the squirrel. E17 flies in seconds later and battles for the prey! Both E's are fierce and E17 wants that squirrel badly and even jumps up on E18's back trying to claim it. E17 wins the battle! Harriet heads to the attic while the E's remain on the nest. After about 15 minutes, E17 flies off the nest with the squirrel in its talons and flies to the west pasture! Wow! This is a first we have seen with one of the E's flying off with prey! E18 follows immediately but then returns to the nest and looks around for it or scraps. Seeing nothing is there, E18 takes off again. Great instincts for E17 to be flying off with prey to eat somewhere else - less chance of it being stolen! For E18, it is a lesson to learn! Thank you for watching!

M flies in with the first delivery - a whole fish and E17 flies down to the nest and E18 is flying in right behind Dad. They battle it out and E18 comes up with possession of the fish and gets to eat it! E17 attempts to steal but E18 blocks that move so E17 heads to the porch and attic while E18 eats her fish. E18 will lie down in the nest afterwards and E17 will join her as they await the next delivery! M flies in with fish #2 at 10:28 and this time E17 gets it. E18 will hop on the veranda watching E17 eating and then will go to the attic. M flies in with fish #3 at 13:00 and both E's rush over to claim it with E18 almost knocking E17 off the nest! E17 gets the fish and E18 grabs the remainder fish on the nest and they both eat. Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles_Lookin 4 Food: E17 Goes At Crow/Pond Visits/E's Fly To Adult/Vie 4 Food On Ground 5-6-21

5/6/2021

wskrsnwings It was a very foggy morning but that did not keep E17 & E18 from honing their survival skills, alert to any activity that might mean food. E17 perched with M15 in the OCT and both perched by M in the DSPS. E17 started to follow M when he left but got involved chasing a crow... almost caught it. E18 tracked a possible food opportunity and E17 followed soon after. E17 returned quickly but E18 was away for a while. Both saw M15 land on the ground with food in the west pasture and fought for the prey. E17 got it while E18 waited for an opportunity to steal. E17 wisely took the food to a tree to eat & was pestered by smaller birds. So he moved to another tree and E18 flew there too. They each stole and ate the food with E18 eventually returning to the nest. It was a great day of learning for 103 day old E17 & E18.

Lady Hawk E17 is resting on the nest when a gust of wind blows one of the stick guard rails onto E17's back! The stick spooks E17 causing E17 to jump up in the air! lol In regular time and slomo! E17 then looks at that offending stick and comes to the side of the nest and picks it up to move it! Looks like Dad will have some work to do on the nest and reposition that stick as a guard rail! E17 then hops to the porch and up to the attic before flying off heading west! Thank you for watching!

5/4/2021

Lady Hawk M flies in with a whole fish and both E's scramble racing down to the nest. They battle over possession and E18 ends up the victor! E18 gets to eat the prized fish and E17 will go to the veranda and wait for an opportunity to steal. E18 is just about finished with the fish when Dad flies in with fish #2 at 12:49. Another battle for the fish - E18 rushes over and claims fish #2 and mantles and E17 grabs the leftover piece from fish #1. Double mantles as both E's have a fish now. E17 finishes eating and then eyes the fish E18 is eating! At 17:53 E17 goes after what is left from fish#2 and steals it from E18! E18 looks for a few scraps but is quite full so heads up to the attic with a full crop! E17 finishes the fish on the nest and joins E18 on the attic -best buddies again now that there is no longer any competition for food! Both E's are learning important lessons in each food battle!

SWFL Eagles_ *Shades of* E15... Each E "Claims" A Nest ?? 05-03-21

5/3/2021

wskrsnwings As I was watching the E's this morning, each perching above one of H & M's nests, I thought about how E15 last season thought the nest was his/hers. And to see E18 perching above the natal nest and E17 perching above the unused Nest 2, it brought a smile to my face. The E's seeing any nest as the possibility for food was imprinted on them from Day 1. No food was delivered while I was there today (two fish deliveries by M15 an hour or so later). The E's perched together in the CSPS for a short time but mostly they watched the territory from their perches above the nests and warned away the dive bombing smaller birds. And a Red-headed Woodpecker visited the fallen strangler fig. The E's are 100 days old today!

SWFL Eagle ~E18 Protects Fish From E17's Steal Attempt! Crows Give Chase; Playing At The Pond 5.2.21

5/3/2021

Lady Hawk Early this morning, E18 drops down to the nest and stands over the fish nestover that was left over from yesterday's late evening delivery by Dad. E17 and Harriet are on the attic and are vocal - E18 mantles and gets ready to defend her fish! E17 drops to the nest to make a steal attempt only E18 lunges aggressively at E17 and warns this is her fish! E17 relents and goes back up to the attic and E18 gets to eat the rest of the fish. This was important to see E18's aggression this time as most of the food deliveries over the past three days have gone to E17. E17 is seen flying off the nest and crows will follow. They all do a flyby in front of the cam 2 tree and then are seen following E18 over across the street until E18 returns to the nest. E18 will fly off the nest and this time take a nestover and fly to the DSPS - E17 will immediately follow! These two follow one another through out the day. They both perch in the DSPS and then both go to the pond! E18 heads to the water to take a sip and to bottom dip and play around. E17 hangs out under the palm tree and then comes to the side of the bank. E18 walks over and they flap at one another. E17 takes off and E18 flies to the hubcab tree before flying back to the nest. Both E's lay down together as bonded siblings. Thank you for watching!
