A family of eagles nests on the North Fort Myers property of Dick Pritchett Real Estate.
For four and a half years, Pritchett has focused a webcam on the eagle nest during breeding season.
Harriet (mother) and M15 (father) mated and produced two eggs this year. One hatched and produced E9. Five days ago E9 fell out of its nest, an "accidental fledging." He survived.
Yesterday I went up there, to see how they are all doing.
One of the parents sat in a dead tree not far from the nest.
I can't tell the difference between Harriet and M15, but there is a key here.
After a while, the two adult eagles flew off and returned to the nest. One waited here.
E9 sat at the top of another dead tree. After a while, he flew to the nest.
Here is the arrival.
Pritchett Real Estate deserves a lot of credit for maintaining their webcam. As they say, the best place to see the eagles is back home in front of your computer, but I wanted to see them for myself.
