Florida Cam. Watch Hatching and Raising of Bald Eagles

UPDATE:
The necropsy report on E14 from Georgia showed a significantly high amount of brodifacoum an anticoagulant rodenticide, in his liver.
Rat poisons prevent the blood from clotting and cause the animal that has ingested a toxic amount, to bleed to death.
Rodents that have come into contact with this poison become lethargic, thus making them easy prey for eagles, owls, hawks and other birds of prey.
Harriet and M are still at their nest, doing what they do, except raising babes. Although they're adults, with a tolerance and larger livers, they're being watched closely for signs that they too might be in danger of this poison.

So sad...
 
If she lays another one in the next two days, it'll truly be amazing. They get it on ALOT, so it's not entirely out of the question... plus, they've been keeping up with the nest, sleeping in the attic, protecting it in between their stick arguments, meals and eagle whoopie.
 
There's a link to this live cam, somewhere in this thread... the one in the beginning won't work because of the Pritchett's update.
Hold on, I'll find it and tag you if you want.
 
and who said miracles cant happen 😍
The eagle world is a buzz, let me tell ya. There's another nest here, up in the northern part of the state that is on cam also. Last year, while there were 2 eggs in the nest, the Mom went missing and Dad was left to do it all... a very difficult task, that doesn't end well in most cases. Out of nowhere a female started showing up and slowly but surely started to tend to the eggs and nest. The first few times she tried incubating were tough because she didn't have a brood patch or experience. But by God she managed it, those eggers hatched and fledged. They are a mated couple this season, and she has new eggs of her very own.

The church(for if you read church snag/church side pine)there's a spot in their parking lot for eagle watchers.
They also had their lights lit from sundown to sunup in memorandum of little E14. It was a loving gesture.
