  1. Thanks for your updates this year – hope you are able to continue to share this great information! Rest up now cuz we need your valuable input!

    1. Hi Mindy!, as you can see by my slow response to your comment, have been catching up on a few other neglected things lol Thanks for the nice words! I guess I’d better reset the cam list pretty soon here, since we will have not one but two Florida cams (prob first nests to lay) this year! woohoo!

    1. For the past few days the eaglets have been doing some branching, which made them a bit hard to see on cam sometimes. Today we had the first confirmed fledge where one of the eaglets flew (sort of fell but is okay) to a spot in the tree below the nest. So at this point there are truly two. However it wouldn’t be surprising to see the fledgling return to the nest. It can get pretty confusing at this point in their development as they branch and fledge. Hope that helps!
