You will fall in love with these two bald eagles caring for their eggs, live on Eaglecam!

 Few birds are as fierce and beautiful as the bald eagle, a predator who is both a mascot of the United States and (tragically) one of the victims of this country's expansion into the birds' traditional habitats.

Still, many bald eagles survive — sometimes by adapting to human civilization. That's the case with these two, who have made their nest in the middle of a suburban park in Florida.

According to the Eaglecam site:

The nest resides 60 feet above the ground, in a Slash Pine tree. The camera faces South East . . . 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.

Thanks to a local real estate agency's sponsorship of the live feed, you can enjoy the domestic antics of these eagles — who welcomed two new eggs into their nest earlier this week. The eggs will hatch sometime around the new year.

You won't be able to stop watching this mesmerizing pair as they do little things like fluff up the grass in the nest, and reposition their wings to keep the eggs warm. All while cars are zooming by in the background. Nature really does find a way. (Source)

  14. Just think, we can watch the eggs hatch 35 days from date of being laid. That is going to be awesome!!

    Thank you Dawn :) I was worried. Vanessa s.

  37. PocaHotness says:

    Eagle's pant to regualte their body temperature, so their eggs stay at a certain temperature, thats why she gets up and changes places and moves the eggs around before she lays back down. She leaves the nest periodically to get water, never being gone for more than a min or 2. I seen the male Dec. 9th in the evening, he brought her a fish to eat, but I havent seen him since and been wondering where he is as well?

  38. PocaHotness says:

    Also, remember this is Florida, so it will be warm and hot some days, it rained last night and was windy. But when the sun is out, it looks like they don't have much shade over the nest, so I'm sure it gets hot sitting there all day in the sun. This is nature, if they felt this wasn't a good spot, they wouldn't have picked it. Trust that the Eagles know what they are doing, naturally :) Thanks Dawn for the update, usually you would see the mate more often. Possibly on a branch nearby though.

    I saw him feed her 4:00 pm Sunday. I missed it yesterday. I was watching late last night and I saw her get up and stretch and she flew off to the right and a sec later came in on the left and laid back down! This is soo amazing! I can't stop watching her. I just keep this window all the time now.

  40. PocaHotness says:

    FYI: in the wild, bald eagle parents must incubate the egg for a full 35 days. During this time, the egg must remain at a steady temperature of 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit. If the incubating parent is frightened away from the nest or leaves the nest even very briefly, the egg may become too cold or too hot, depending on the weather. Also during this period, the eagle parents continuously turn the egg with their feet. The turning process prevents the embryo from sticking to the inside of the egg shell. Occasionally the egg is dropped from the nest during this process and it cannot be recovered.

    The male is probably sitting in the same tree or maybe another tree if he is not hunting food. Just because you do not see him in the camera frame does not mean he is far from the nest. And as far as the camera positioning goes, for those who think that it's sitting right on top of them this could not be further from the truth. I do not personally know about this camera but the ones I do know about are not even close to the nest, & some aren't even in the same tree. These camera's are so non-invasive that the Eagles do not even know they are there & being watched. There is no light, the camera has infrared sensors, like night vision goggles, it does not attract bugs this is just nature.

    I think one of the eggs already started to hatch on New Year's afternoon (in the Netherlands). I could hear tiny squeaks and also one of the parents squeaked at the eggs. When both were on the edge of the nest I could see an egg with a black dot, which might have been a small hole. Also three fish were brought in as if the parents already thought they had to feed the chicks. Can't wait to see at least one of the chicks hatch today (hopefully I'm right about the attempts to hatch yesterday).

    Thank goodness!! I hope they both make it. This nest is a block away from my house. They lived across Bayshore for several years until Publix bought the property. Publix could not build because of their nest so mysteriously the base of the tree that the nest was in got all chopped up and the tree died forcing the eagles to relocate. I am glad they moved across the street instead of miles away.

    If the first chick is a Female she will kill the other one. I was hoping the first chick was a male but if not the female chick that was first born will kill the other chick.

  92. Eagle Watcher says:

    Chicks - Sometimes two chicks will survive, but it is not uncommon for the older eaglet to kill the smaller one, especially if the older is a female, as females are consistently larger than males. Should one chick decide to kill its sibling, neither parent will make the slightest effort to stop the fratricide.

  93. The stronger chick keeps pecking the other one every time it pokes its head up to eat, and the weaker one just buries its head again! I didn't see the second one getting fed:( I hope it can survive....

  94. Anonymous says:

    I saw them both being fed (a baby bird from another nest) but the older one does keep pecking at the newer one. As amazing as it is to watch it's so brutal and sad to watch them killing other baby birds to feed to the little ones.

    looks like it could be quite warm there. mum panting and sheltering them from the sun. Not sitting on them as probably getting too uncomfortable and hot . last night they were more underneath, so wriggly though.

  134. Eagle Watcher says:

    Human disturbance can have an impact on the bald eagle, as most of them need some privacy and quiet to breed. People wanting to observe or photograph the eagles can disturb them enough to cause them to abandon a nest. Use binoculars and spotting scopes for viewing, and keep at a reasonable distance.

    I found this but did not find anything further about one sibling killing the other. It appears to me though that these two are fine. As they get a little bigger they will start playing tug of war with eachother and hopefully noone will fall out of the nest. The parents will keep feeding if one falls out but chance of survival if one falls out is minimal.

    everything looking fine tonight . Both babies looking larger and head/beaks changed.Dad has darker feathers and feathers round neck are slightly more defined in shape slightly larger. havnt noticed many more diferences.

  158. Thx Helen, and glad to read chicks are fine.

  159. Eagle Watcher says:

    The mother is larger and the corners of her mouth go all the way to the back of her eye whereas the father's corners only go to the middle of the eye. The father has the dark circles around his iris. The mother has a more pronounced eyebrow which makes her look meaner and a grayish shading kindof like eyeshadow around her eyes. The mother is actually the lighter colored larger eagle. Also the father's head feathers are more brilliant and his beak is a brighter orange.

  160. Thank you for the info Eagle Watcher!!

  161. helen says:

    Ah thankyou Eaglewatcher and your welcome Coree. alls calm tonight no longer tucked under mum.

  162. Both chicks ate fish cereal this a.m. of course the bigger one ate more. Both manage to shoot their poop across the nest and out, lol.

  163. Eagle Watcher says:

    I saw the poop throwing happen a couple of times...It was pretty funny!!!!

    The smaller baby ate real good this morning. Mom brought an extra fish. praise God!!!

  165. Where are the parents getting the fish from? Fresh or sea?

  166. Eagle Watcher says:

    caloosa hatchee river that leads into the gulf of mexico. The river is brackish (half salt/half fresh).

    Just saw mom feeding the young ones around 9 AM and now the babies are both resting. Everything seems to be going wonderful. It really is great they are getting fresh fish in their diet. Since it is goig down in the forties tonight and the babies are larger it shoulc be interesting how she keeps them both warm enough. I am always afraid one will get too close to the edge and fall out

  168. Eagle Watcher says:

    Cold front coming through and that tree is rocking and rolling

  169. helen says:

    interesting about where the fish come from. Do these birds get ringed/identified for records and any idea how many eagles there are? it'll be interesting to 'catch up' on the babes in the future.

  170. Eagle Watcher says:

    Not that I am aware of. The pair has been in the area for a long time and have raised offspring before. No the florida panthers get collars but when they have offspring there are no collars that I am aware of either

  171. All doing well, eating fish 4:a.m. my time PST

  172. Eagle Watcher says:

    Just watched both mom and dad each feeding a baby at the same time....now that was awesome

  173. helen says:

  175. Eagle Watcher says:

    i piccoli aquilotti, Romolo e Remo, fanno ginnastica al mattino !

  182. Its cute to watch them sit on their butts. One of the parent open its beak real wide and so did the little chick, wasn't feeding time either.

  183. Okaaaaay . . . what's that silvery thing on the nest??

  184. Eagle Watcher says:

    If you are talking about that silvery stringy stuff flapping by the camera that is Spanish Moss. It grows on all the trees down here. The other stuff in the nest is a piece of news paper.

  185. Ahhhh newspaper, did it blow up there or do you think its for warmth?

    Does anyone know if they are male or female?

  189. Anonymous says:

    Just putting it out there. It would be great if whoever set this cam up could put another one some where overlooking the nest and surrounding area to see where mom/dad sit overlooking the nest!?

  190. The parents are sitting on a branch next or near the nest. I can hear their chirp or screech.

  191. Eagle Watcher says:

    They sit above the nest about 2 feet on a branch. It is above the camera but one of them is always there.

  192. What are the wing span of the Floridian eagles?

  193. Anonymous says:

    I see a fence in background and people are there horse's? How long have these birds been in this tree? I'm in ohio and just love this thank you for having this

  194. Eagle Watcher says:

    They have been in the area for around 7 or 8 years. They fly up north in the spring and come back to the nest in the winter to hatch their offspring. They have been in this tree several years. They used to have a nest across the street until publix bought the property and could not build because of the next. Mysteriously the original tree that the nest was in got chopped up at the bottom killing the tree and forcing the eagles to relocate across the street to the current nest. The property they are on now is private and is a horse ranch. Thus the fence and the horses.

  195. Eagle Watcher says:

    CoreeMoonlyte, they are not Florida Eagles they are American Bald Eagles (our national bird) their wing span is: Females around 7 feet and Males around 6 feet.

  196. Lol, yes I know all that. I just meant Floridian cause they're in Florida. I shoulda said, Lower South East of the United States of America.Lol. I thank you also for having this eagle cam. Im from California, Central California USA, my back yard is the Sequoia Mtns.

  197. They didnt have fish for lunch this time.Couldnt tell what it was.

  198. Eagle Watcher says:

    CoreeMoonlyte the Sequoia National Park is on my bucket list!!! It must be really beautiful there.

  199. It is, especially now with the snow Caps. I live next to the hills, Half an hr to the entrance of the park.

  200. Whoa!! I see a big dead bird they had for dinner. I see claws.
