Eagle Cam / North Fort Myers /Dick Pritchett Real Estate

These bald eagles have been coming to this nest for the past 5 years. They reside in this nest between the months of October and April. Before building this nest in 2008, the pair had a nest on the opposite side of Bayshore Road. This location is now known as Eagle Landing. This mature, mating pair continue to make Southwest Florida their winter home and have graced us with their presence year after year.

This year we are excited to have a live look into their Southwest Florida nest. We have installed a camera that will film the birds 24/7 and stream live video directly to this site. The camera is positioned 6 feet above the nest. It is attached to a tree limb using no screws or nails on order to preserve the tree. The camera's night vision is an 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.

The objective of this camera is to bring these beautiful birds into our home. Our goal is to foster appreciation, admiration and respect for these magnificent creatures. Our intentions are to learn from these birds so we may better understand them and their habits. We hope that you enjoy this free live video feed and please tell your friends. Enjoy!

Eagle Facts:

About Eagles

Bald eagles are one of the most majestic animals in North America. Bald Eagles are categorized by their dark brown body with white head and tail, a large yellow hooked beak, and yellow talons. Females are generally larger than males. Full grown Bald Eagles can weigh between 10-14points and sit about 3 feet tall. Young Bald Eagles are mostly brown, with speckles of white, and a black beak. The largest Bald Eagles live in Alaska, while the smallest live in Florida. Bald Eagles can live up to 28 years in the wild, and 50 years in captivity.

Habitat: Bald Eagles are exclusive to North America. The Bald Eagle tends to live in areas with large bodies of water and plenty of mature trees. The Bald Eagle builds the largest nest of any bird. Ideally located in a large tree with strong branches, a Bald Eagle nest can grow as large as 20 feet by 9 feet and weigh almost 3 tons!

Diet: Bald Eagles eat mostly fish, however they are opportunistic, and have been known to eat small mammals when fish are not readily available. In some cases Bald Eagles have been seen hunting in pairs.

Flying: Bald Eagles are very efficient flyers. With a top speed of just under 100 MPH, a Bald Eagle can have a wing span of almost 8 feet. Using their 7,000 feathers, Bald Eagles typically cruise around 30-35 MPH. A Bald Eagle can fly at heights of 10,000.

    The Bald Eagle is a sacred bird in some North American cultures, and its feathers, like those of the Golden Eagle, are central to many religious and spiritual customs among Native Americans. Eagles are considered spiritual messengers between gods and humans by some cultures.[58] Many pow wow dancers use the eagle claw as part of their regalia as well. Eagle feathers are often used in traditional ceremonies, particularly in the construction of regalia worn and as a part of fans, bustles and head dresses. The Lakota, for instance, give an eagle feather as a symbol of honor to person who achieves a task. In modern times, it may be given on an event such as a graduation from college.[59] The Pawnee considered eagles as symbols of fertility because their nests are built high off the ground and because they fiercely protect their young. The Kwakwaka'wakw scattered eagle down to welcome important guests.[60] The Choctaw explained that the Bald Eagle, who has direct contact with the upper world of the sun, is a symbol of peace

    it seems that the mother isn't feeding the one baby as much food as the other one. the baby that's getting more food keeps pushing the other baby over when it tries to get food and prevents it from eating. is this normal and will the other baby get enough food?
