Thank you, Journi. I've enjoyed your comments and scaps this past season.

Often used the time stamps from you scaps to refer back to the live cams.

I want to thank everyone for the great information shared of our precious, loved Eagle family!
So many great folks here sharing so much with everyone. Then we have our super gal Journi who gives so much of herself, she is amazing and so knowledgable. Always willing to help and keeps us all so well informed.

I have not posted much this season, life took hold and my time was needed elsewhere, but through all of your postings, I have been able to stay up to date. My how they grew so fast and of course M15 and Harriet being some of the best Eagle parents, it's no surprise to any of us that these two would flourish.

I will always long to hear any news about E8 and E9, but I have learned to "Trust the Eagles"

Take care everyone and hope to see you all this fall. Once again Thank you to so many who make this possible and to all you great people who share.

Hello everyone. I visited the nest earlier today.

:vid: VIDEO: https://youtu.be/kd3Gxy_u7Kw

Harriet Is Seen At Yonder Pond Looking Beautiful As Ever 06-17-19

Neither Harriet or M15 were seen in the nest pastures. But Harriet was seen in plain sight on a snag at yonder pond before flying into the stand of trees there. If we had not seen Harriet flying there, we probably never would have seen her. This is the time of year the eagles perch 'under cover' escaping the hot sun and the smaller, pestering birds. The nest cam and 360 cam have been taken down and the nest tree pasture has been mowed. I will visit the nest again the first week of July.

Thanks Vicki. And just one more question . Is Eggbert in the nest still. And tell us again about Eggbert and who eggbert is, it is rather comforting for this eagle family that now is dispersed. Eggbert is always there.

I remember watching E9 hatching out of the egg on national news.
Found the SWFEC on the internet and decided to watch "the little guy" for a few days.
And look what happened! :love:

Peggy180, Journi and eagleslanding - I am glad you enjoyed the video. I visited the nest again this morning and will have a video later.

eagleslanding, no one knows if "eggbert" is still in the nest, but very well could be. If it is, it is buried deep in the nest base. "eggbert" was the first egg laid in Season 5 (we know this because both eggs had distinctive markings). E9 was the second egg laid. All we know about the first egg/eggbert laid is that it never hatched and we can only guess why it was non-viable. The nest certainly holds many memories of seasons past.

Good evening everyone. I visited the nest earlier today.

:vid: VIDEO: https://youtu.be/-reaYB8RCFE

The Nest Tree Stands Tall & Strong Through The Summer Storms 07-01-19

The summer storms were strong last week and I wanted to see how the nest, nest tree and pasture area fared. I was hoping that Harriet and /or M15 would be around too, but I never saw them. Remember this is the time of year when they have no obligation to the nest since there are no eaglets to care for. I did see a pair of mottled ducks, cattle egrets and Muscovy ducks.The nest and nest tree looked just as good as they did on my visit 2 weeks ago. The ponds have plenty of water but are not overflowing.

Thank you so much for posting your new video from your visit to the nest tree area this morning! It's so good to
hear that the nest tree and area look good...especially after the strong storms you had there last week!
I was hoping that you'd see Harriet & M15 but... maybe next time! :luck:
Have a good night! 🌺 ~Journi

It was so good to see the nest tree and the pasture. Beautiful ducks. Looks like H & M offer short term rentals for other birds in the summer ;)

Thank you for sharing with us, Vicki!
