Florida Bald Eagle Cam
This morning in the St Paul/Minneapolis metro area we woke up to 18 degrees (above zero thankfully) this morning. That will be the high temperature tomorrow. To make ourselves feel better, and to continue to bring you information that is raptor-related, we wanted to share some information about a bald eagle nest in southwest Florida. Last year (October 2012 - May 2013) marked the first year the nest was streamed live to the world. Over 16 million viewers tuned into to watch adult eagles Harriet and Ozzie raise their two (2) eaglets from birth to fledge. The adult bald eagles, have been coming to this nest for the past 6 (six) years.The nest resides 60 feet above the ground, in a slash pine tree.
As of November 20, there were two eggs in the nest (see the screen shot.)
