Southwest Florida(SWFL) Eagle Nest

You are watching a live broadcast of a wild mating pair of bald eagles named M15 and Harriet located in Southwest Florida(SWFL) in Fort Myers, Florida. Happy to announce the cams are now live for the 2022-2023 nesting season.

About this nest – The nest is about 60 feet above the ground, in a Slash Pine tree. As of 2012, the bald eagles have made this nest their home for 5 years. The male(M15) and female(Harriet) both help in incubation of the eggs and will also both provide food for the eaglets after they hatch.

We are finally getting some captures trickling’s in from our ground photographers. Here are the cam trees, the pond cam tree is down but the nest tree and cam #2 is fine. Hopefully once power comes on we will start seeing our nest again. NO Water in the area or on the property at all.

Thanks to Nancy and Bob for all the info you provide. The prelude has been written to the book which we will all read as this story unfolds. I’m thankful one eagle has been spotted. I’m hopeful the final chapter will be all about E21 and 22.

Hello Members I see Bob posted the info we received late yesterday, such good news, We have several ground photographers who are members in our group and they are starting to supply photos of nest area for us. We are hopeful Harriet and M15 will start building soon, they will not have to go far to hunt for materials I am sure. I will check in as I receive information for you.
