. .The SWFEC nest has been adopted for the 2022 nesting season by
.Sue McCarty in memory of Ms Smith, admin,
who gave so much time, love, laughter, and happiness to so many at SWFEC.


Thank you Sue McCarty! What a a kind and generous thing for you to do in Ms. Smith's memory!


HWF welcomes you to Season 10 of the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam 2020-2021 staring Harriet and M15.

Our stars M15 and Harriet :love:


.
Harriet and M15's nest is located 60 feet up in a slash pine in North Fort Myers, Florida in a pasture on the Dick Pritchett property. It is located right in the middle of a fenced horse pasture giving us many views of the beautiful horses, a pond, and other wildlife as well.

This photo will help with locating the position of the nest tree in the pasture plus other often mentioned landmarks.



.Dick Pritchett Real Estate is pleased to continue bringing you this live look into this bald eagle family and their nest located on their property. This season there are 4 cameras that will live stream the eagles 24/7.

Camera #1 is positioned 6 feet above the nest and is carefully attached to the tree so as not to damage it and is equipped with night vision or infrared light, which emits no actual light or noise. The eagles do not see or hear anything coming from the camera.

Camera 2 is located approximately 60 feet from the nest in another tree and has the ability to capture images of the nest action from a distance that are outside the view of cam 1. It is a PTZ cam which means it can be moved to catch the action

In 2015 we added a third camera which gives us great views of the pond area where Harriet takes her wonderful baths as well as a different view of the nest. !

New in 2018 was our 360 degree cam (cam 4). When launched from a button under the cam it allows the user--anybody-- to operate the cam themselves. This cam allows you to click and drag to any viewing area for a fully immersive experience. AMAZING!!

All of our cameras are environmentally friendly, non-intrusive and positioned to offer a good view of the nest and eagles while preserving the beauty of the nest and its' surroundings. These 4 cameras will capture every moment at the nest, 24/7, and stream it live .

Our 2021 season was very successful. After an early glitch with both very young eaglets having severe eye infections and spending time at CROW, who did their usual wonderful job of healing our E17 and E18, they were re-nested successfully. They went on to absolutely thrive and fledge.

.SOME HISTORY ABOUT THIS NEST AND OUR EAGLES ---



Our thanks to the Pritchett family for installing, maintaining and running these cams on your property. This is a family owned and run business. The cam and nest are located 60 feet up in a slash pine in a horse pasture on the Pritchett property. The first cam was installed in early September, 2012.

A mature pair of bald eagles, Ozzie & Harriet, had been coming to this nest since they built it for the 2006-2007 season until Ozzie's untimely death in September of 2015.

Before the present nest was built in 2006, a pair of bald eagles had a nest on the opposite side of Bayshore Road, across the street. That old nest tree was deliberately killed by someone to get rid of the eagles nest in order to remove the tree.

We are really not sure IF or for how long Ozzie and Harriet occupied the old nest. It may have been Ozzie and a different female-- or a different pair altogether---we just don't know. The nest on the Pritchett property is now occupied by Harriet and her present mate, M15.


There is now a subdivision called Eagle's Landing going up at what used to be the undeveloped property at "Yonder Pond" in the near vicinity of the "old nest"

******************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Our E5+E6. (2015) We lost E5 quite early as well. We lost eaglets 2 years in a row. :( E6 was Ozzies last eaglet.
SWF   E5+6-2015.jpg


HISTORY SINCE THE CAM HAS BEEN IN THE PASTURE TREE --


Two eggs were laid November 26 & 29 in 2012 -- Both chicks, Hope and Honor ( E1 and E2 ), fledged successfully.

Two eggs were laid Nov. 17 & 20 in 2013.
Only one eaglet, E4, fledged successfully E3 sadly passed away on Feb. 2 at 41 days old of unknown causes but most likely a respiratory problem.

Two eggs were laid on November 19 & 22 in 2014
Just one of the eaglets, E6, fledged. We lost E5 on Jan 20, 2015 at due to unknown causes.

Two eggs were laid on December 19 & 22 in 2015
Both eaglets fledged but shortly after were attacked by an owl. The younger one, E8, was lost for a week and found by three folks from CROW. E8 was transported to CROW where he received intense treatment and rehab. E8 was finally released into the nest area on August 18, 2016.

Two eggs were laid in November of 2016
Egg #1 (Eggbert) was unviable and never hatched. E9 hatched, was the apple of everybody's eye, and successfully fledged

Two eggs were laid in November of 2017
Both eggs hatched and our beloved E10 and E11 successfully fledged.

Two eggs were once again laid in November of 2018
Both eggs hatched and wonderful E12 ans E13 fledged successfully.

Two eggs were once again laid in November of 2019 (clutch #1). Only one egg containing our precious E14 hatched. Unfortunately we lost E14 to a combination of rodenticide and a terrible accident when one of his---yes he was a boy---blood feathers broke and he bled to death :cry1:

To our surprise we had a second clutch of eggs laid in February of 2020!! :ohmy: Our miracle eaglets E15 and E16 hatched and successfully fledged! E15 hung around the nest for a record 169 days before leaving on it's adventure! What a season!!

Two eggs were laid in November of 2020. Both eggs hatched but E17 and E18 both had severe infections when only a few days old. They survived and both fledged successfully.

.SOME HISTORY OF THE OLD NEST (across the street from the Pritchett property)---

We DO NOT believe these eagles were Ozzie and Harriet. While CROW told us that Ozzie was a very old eagle, Harriet could not possibly be this old. She would have to be well into her mid thirties or so if she was the female in the nest in the "killed" tree. :w00t: The history of that old nest is interesting though.

.
Below is a picture showing the locations of the nest and nearby locations----
SWF   nest tree map.jpg

As you can see above in the lower picture, there is a large river close to the nest, (about a half a mile away - as a bird flies) that flows into the Gulf of Mexico. It is called the Caloosahatchee River, This is a prime source of food for this nest.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, there are 128 nests in a 25 mile radius of Ozzie and Harriet's nest. The closet nest is about one mile away, although it was last known active for the 2009 season.

.
This is the tenth season Dick Pritchett Real Estate has provided the live look into Harriet & Ozzie’s (now M15's) Southwest Florida nest. We now have three HD-PTZ cameras that film the birds 24/7 and stream live video directly to this site. Camera #1 is positioned six feet above the nesting tree and is equipped with night vision or infrared light, which emits no actual light. Nor does it make any noise. The birds do not see or hear anything coming from the camera. Camera #2 is located approximately 100 feet from the nest and has the ability to capture images of the nest action outside of Camera #1. Cam #3 is located down at the pond which is on the property where the eagles tend to spend a lot of time. New in the 2017/18 season was a 360 degree camera also in the nest tree. It can be launched and operated by viewers of the cam!! All of our cameras are environmentally friendly, non-intrusive and positioned to offer the best view of the nest and birds while preserving the pristine beauty of the nest and their surroundings.

.Aside from losing three of our eaglets (E3, E5, and E14) and and 2 nonviable eggs, we have had our share of other happenings at this nest. ---

In 2015 ~~~ has it really been 6 years since we lost this handsome eagle?

OZZIE!! ~~ What can we say about Ozzie? We lost the handsome, smart, wonderful 1st Dad of our nest on September 29th, 2015. S0 sad!!! All of us who watch this nest and love this family will always miss this wonderful, intelligent, entertaining eagle!

************************************************************************************************

In 2016 ~~~

Perhaps the most important of all of the dramatic happenings at this nest in 2016 was the complete and total loss of the nest probably due to weather, old age, and leaping eaglets. Fortunately for those of us who watch this nest Harriet and M15 chose to rebuild their nest right in the same tree and the same spot--what a relief!!

Here is a look at the nest before and after the collapse

************************************************************************************************

2017 ~~~

We had our own catastrophe just before the start of our new season. In the very late summer of 2017 on September,11trh, hurricane Irma, hit a good part of Florida including our nest area in North Ft. Myers. We had an overflowing pond, a large tree in the pasture was uprooted and although our nest stayed right where Harriet and /M15 built it the nest tree itself sustained quite a bit of damage. Believe it or not even out snag trees stayed standing!!! :w00t: We waited patiently to see if out pair of eagles had safely weathered the hurricane. We were rewarded a few days later when they showed up safe and sound!!

Below is a before and after picture of our nest tree before and after the hurricane courtesy of whiskrsnwings/VickiO

***********************************************************************************************

2020 ---

In 2020 we had a very sad tragedy. Out precious E14 passed away at the age of 27 days. He somehow broke a blood feather and we found out that he was full of rodenticide from a rat that he had eaten. Since that prevents blood from clotting our baby bled to death.

.We had 2 eaglets again in 2019---E12 and E13 :thumlft:
SWF   13 +12  12-29-18.jpg

Quite aside from losing E14 season 8 was also a season of a lot of strange firsts!!

List of firsts for the 8th season 2019/20

First year we have ever seen an owl pair both on the nest tree at the same time
Earliest date an egg has ever been laid – Egg#1/E14 - 11/12/19
Earliest date an egg has hatched - Egg#1/E14 - hatched 12/19/19
First for 4 days between egg laying – Egg#1/E14 and Egg#2 - (11/12/19 and 11/16/19)
First broken blood feather - E14,
First to know decisively the gender of an eaglet – E14,
First second clutch - Egg#3/E15 - laid 2/22/20
Two of the longest hatches to date on the nest - Egg#3/E15 46 hours, Egg#4/E16 - 59 hours

(12 and 13) Who's up there?
SWF   12 and 13   2-23-19.jpg

Longest time between hatches - Egg#3/E15 and E16 - 2 days 11 hours
First time the 2nd egg of a clutch has taken 37 days to hatch - Egg#4/E16 hatched on day 37.
First stuffed animal (Squirrel) brought to nest – by Harriet 4/7/20.
First time curriculum driven open classroom sessions for the benefit of students and teachers staying at home due to COVID 19, spring 2020.
First time seen on cam Harriet locking talons with an intruder 5/1/20.
First time a mollusk brought to the nest 5/2/20 - attached to bird beak, brought by M15
First time a fledgling/juvie has stayed so long in the nest area---E15---169 days---Sept 16, 2020

**************************************************************************************************************************

Once again in 2019 we had 2 eggs and a solo eagle, E14. We already know his story --we were all so sad to lose him!

E14 and his eggie--so adorable :brknhrt:
SWF   E14 Im here now  12-23-19.jpg

Then we had a surprise---the first ever second clutch after having lost a living eaglet on any eagle cam -- and what did we get? Our surprise eaglets-- E15 and E16!
SWF   E15+16    4-3-20.jpg

E15 and E16 with their feathers coming in. E15 decided to stay with Harriet and M15 for so long after fledging that H+M built a back up nest. We sure are glad that they didn't use it or we would never have seen what went on in season 9.

Last year season 9 was very successful for our eagle pair as well once those beautiful eaglets, E17 and E18. were cured of their horrible eye infections by none other than the excellent staff at CROW and re-nested. Thank you CROW!!! :love:

Once again Harriet laid her expected 2 eggs and both hatched and the eaglets successfully fledged!! We did have that eye drama but we were much relieved when after a little more they were both re-nested and started to thrive!!

Our newly hatched surprise babies! :rh:

Thank you Mary F for creating the new Season 10 forum thread. This is such an incredible history of the SWFEC. So much wonderful information that should be of interest to any new viewers during season 10.

Hello everyone. I visited the nest this morning.

:vid: VIDEO: https://youtu.be/czUo4rCd1Ug

A Full Moon, An Amusing Red-tailed Hawk But No H or M 09-20-21

Harriet & M15 were not seen this am during my visit. The full moon and sunrise were a beautiful sight to see and they were likely to be enjoying it too, perching nearby but out of my sight. A young Red-tailed Hawk kept me entertained as I waited to see if Harriet & M15 would fly while I was there. The Hawk tolerated the pestering Blue Jays before flying to perch in the shade of a palm tree. Later the Hawk perched on the fence near 3 young Muscovy ducks taunting then and then watching them fly to the pasture pond. H & M are still "on vacation" before nestorations move into full swing.

:wave: Hello -I have missed you all, seems like just yesterday though. :D Season 10 has begun! :hooray:
:ty: Mary F for opening this new thread. Your hard work and dedication shows. :hug:
Great info to refer back to all season.
:ty: wskrsnwings for the video today- we were blessed with great views of the moon,
the sunrise, the wildlife, especially the messenger bird of good luck- the mourning dove. :rh:
Harriet and M15 must have been visiting the "Nest Decor and More" store.

I agree with NHDal- "Let the adventures begin..."

Will try to behave Journi...... :%: Good night eagle friends! :offtobed:

I so enjoyed all of your summer posts.

My favorites included E17 & E18 in their "spa nests" at CROW--weren't they cute? :love:
And E17 still bonked E18. :D
Then, when E18 mantled over E17 when an intruder came for a visit.
Thank you Suemac for your s'caps.

Hello everyone. I visited the nest earlier today.

:vid: VIDEO: https://youtu.be/g4I43idOPxY

Good Day For Cam Work As Harriet & M15 Are Away 09-24-21

Harriet & M15 were not in the nest tree or pastures when I arrived at 6 AM nor did they fly in while I was there. I watched other birds come & go while waiting... osprey, Muscovy ducks, the Red-tailed hawk and two Red-bellied woodpeckers. Then the "bucket" truck arrived to do some cam work in the nest tree. It looked like the technicians replaced the IR light. We all know how Harriet dislikes that bucket truck, so it was just fine H&M took the morning off.

So good to know that the cams are being checked out and tested... and that Harriet and M15 were not around this morning when that bucket-truck arrived!

A good look at what the nest looked like today.
(Thank you Vicki for your permission to post.)

I was too late so see Ozzie as I discovered this nest in 2015 when everyone was talking about the new kid on the block M-15 Thank you to all of you that work so hard at keeping us informed of the day & night happenings at this nest. I can't wait to see what season 10 brings. In Eagles We Trust! :eag: :eag:

:ty: wskrsnwings for the video yesterday. Glad they worked on the cam. Perhaps they fixed the audio on cam 1. :chin:
I agree with you Vicki- hope we do not have to see the bucket truck again, talons crossed. :luck:
*****Sunnybird- so good to see you. We will always remember that image of E17 and E18 in their towel nests at CROW. :rh:
*****Adeer_1 - good morning! We all wait for season 10 and to continue to document the lives of Harriet and M15.
