Hello everyone. I am posting the specific Season links to the videos for Seasons 1-7. These links allow you to view current or past videos at your leisure.
Seasons 1-6 are a chronological listing. There are separate tabs at the bottom of each season's spreadsheet to choose Ground Videos, Cam Videos and the Daily Nest Activity/Nest Notes.
Season 7 is the actual videos as they are posted. A chronological listing for Season 7 will not be available until after the end of the 2018-2019 nesting season. Enjoy.

Season 1 2012-2013 Videos link: http://bit.ly/1wJAphi

Season 2 2013-2014 Videos link: http://bit.ly/1U9p0Av

Season 3 2014-2015 Videos link: http://bit.ly/1FlPEjc

Season 4 2015-2016 Videos link: http://bit.ly/1Nqaxz8

Season 5 2016-2017 Videos link: http://bit.ly/2cSOUcL

Season 6 2017-2018 Videos link: http://bit.ly/2w7FeqH

Season 7 2018-2019 Videos link: http://dickpritchettrealestate.com/videos.html
Season 7 Videos do not have a spreadsheet listing as the first five seasons do. You will be able to view all the videos for Season 7 in the SWFEC Video library link above using the scroll bar on the right side of the posted videos.

Thank you everyone for your nice comments on my video last week. I visited the nest again this morning. Enjoy.

:vid: VIDEO: https://youtu.be/XH7xgYlqHl0
Many thanks for your wonderful video, Vicki. As always, much appreciated!

By the way, I sent you a quick question via HWF PM earlier this month about a continuing project of mine to document H&M’s nest building activities. Is there another, perhaps better, way to touch base with you?

Armistead, are you the one that documented the nest so well with the Before and After Hurricane Irma pics?
That was great work. Thank you very much.
Thank you, Vicki for your season listings of video.
Now I can go back and find E9's "baby pictures". I stumbled upon your very first video of E9 in the nest.
So sweet to watch.
Now I can find that one--again---and again-- :D

Thanks Sunnybird and, yes, that was I. I’m just trying to get Vicki’s permission to use scaps from her videos for my little project. A large share of H&M’s nest renovations take place before the SWFEC cams come online, and Vicki’s videos are such a great source of scaps to record their progress.

You did such a great job last year on your nest building documentation...I would like to see that this year, too, from you! :thumlft:

I am glad everyone is enjoying my summer videos of visits to the nest. Thank you for watching.

armistead, WPBEgal and Journi, I am so sorry I hadn't replied to your PM's. I noticed you did delete your message, Journi. Feel free to PM me again.

armistead, thank you so much for mentioning you had sent me a PM. I had no idea I had any messages waiting. When HWF switched to the new server, my preference for email notification of PM's did not transfer. So I was not getting email notifications any longer and I never evn thought to look above in the right hand corner for notification on this page. :( I have replied back to both armistead and WPBEgal and please let me know that you received them.

:eag: Hi Vicki - Thanks for posting your message about your PM situation here on the forum!
Glad that you are getting your PM's now! :)

I had a couple of posters wondering how to get in contact with you...
I suggested it's best to use the forums PM function for personal correspondence instead of posting
them in this forums thread.

Thank you, again, for posting your videos here for all to enjoy! :) ~Journi

So glad the approach this year is positive of nest building and focusing on H&M for right now. I am rather fresh and new to the eagle world. As I have only been watching since shortly after e9 was born. I know many of you are 10 plus year watchers of the eagle. I am just going to try again for the joy of watching H&M. And not get mired down by anything. Last year was hard because everything was e9. So I could not see 10,11 for what they were. Hopefully if any new chicks can be born into this beautiful nest 2 proud eagles are working on I can watch with a clean slate. There are so many eagles So individual. Yes there can be sorrow and sadness but as for me I am starting with fresh eyes in this nest. And not worrying about eagles I don't watch or have not seen. And that's what I want to say is Vicki comes so fresh to H&M's nest. As if she is watching it all for the first time. Yes there have been many grand families on this nest. But each family H&M bring is so precious and new. But we always must let one go to find their wings.
Maybe I can follow better this year than last.
So thank you Vicki and commentators for making each year fresh even though you still have special thoughts of some of the families H&M have brought forth to us. That is why I watch and read here foe what is happening now in H&M's life. Keeping on focus with these 2 pretty birds captured so nicely by the Pritchett family. And Vicki.

Another visit to the nest this morning... enjoy today's movie.

:vid: VIDEO: https://youtu.be/-TeZNvvxdaM

Early Departure For Harriet & M15 & Flyover By Sub Adult 09-14-18

At daybreak, M15 flew to the nest tree from the west pasture trees to perch near Harriet and exchange 'good morning' vocals. No nestorations this am as M15 followed Harriet to the distant south at 7AM. A sub adult (appearing to be 3-4 years of age) flew in from the SE over the pastures to the NNW. Great blue and tri-colored herons were seen visiting the pasture pond and trees.

Well, this is a large and interesting stick recently brought to the nest! Wonder which one chose this stick!
Maybe M15 is trying out a new kind of security system...?

Harriet & M15 Deliver Big Sticks At Sunrise 09-17-18

Harriet and M15 spent the night in the nest tree pasture, H in the nest tree and M in the OCT (old cam tree). Both added sticks to the nest at sunrise before flying south and out of sight. M grabbed a large stick from a front pine and had to circle the nest tree twice to get enough height and angle to get the stick to the nest. H grabbed a stick from the nest tree and then a much larger stick from a west pasture tree to add to the nest. Harriet also flushed a hawk from the nearby cam 2 tree.

Love the shot of H&M in the nest together. And the trip with the big stick to the nest. Why can't I remember the usual time period for them to work on their nest. Does it usually start in September? Anyone know? Or remember?

Thanks journi. For some reason working gets in the way of watching the nest. I didn't watch e9 till March then 10 and 11 were overwritten by the missing of e9 on here. But work takes up alot of my time. And I do not save or chronicle anything on the SWFL birds. So previous seasons definitely get blurry. I do read books on the eagle to study more about them. But yes with work I am not as faithful to this site as I would like to be. I do love Vicki's video updates. That one picture of H&M in the nest together was the best. Think I would have to study them for many years to feel confident in answering the deep technical questions I have of the eagle. And there is much missing like no video of M catching a fish for his family. Where is M's favorite hang out to catch a fish. More about the world of the male as he goes off each day for his family. The male eagle is much a mystery as the cam focuses over and over on the nest. M could be in a struggle for food and we would never know. Would love a cam at M's fishing hole area. My niece is there in Florida for her job till November. And my aunt is coming back from Florida for the summer. She lives very close to their nest. I am sure she has seen them fly over her house. My niece says it is extremely hot and humid in Florida right now.
Nice to know H&M are busy working at their job. What is strange is it is hurricane season down there. And well I remember their rebuilding their nest after was it Irma. Tree looked sparse then. Would like side by side of now and then. Very durable tree and nest.

Journi, your comparison scaps of the nest tree area in Sept. 2017 and Sept. 2018 are interesting. The Cam #2 tree seems to have lost a tremendous amount of foliage in the one year interval. Yet another home pasture snag tree in the making?

Hi armistead :) I did notice that the Cam #2 tree seems to have lost a lot of foliage! There could have been some sort of damage to it's root system during the hurricane last year...?
By the way it looks one year later, we very well could be seeing another snag tree in the making.
It will interesting to see what Cam 2 tree will look like next year!

Is there any word on when the cams will be turned on, at least cam 3? It sure would be great to watch H & M do all their remodeling.

H & M Show Their Amazing Skills Gathering Branches For The Nest 09-19-18

Today's video has great views of Harriet and M15 flying at and grabbing branches in a tree, transferring the stick, while flying, from beak to feet and eyeing the nest in flight for the best entry while they are gathering sticks for the nest today. I am always amazed to see their ability to do all this with only beaks and feet.
