The eagles have had their names ever since they moved onto the property in 2007/08. Ozzie and Harriet
 
The nest resides 60 feet above the ground, in a Slash Pine tree. The camera faces South East.
 
Nesting season begins here in South FL Oct. 1. The eagles stay until late April or May.
 
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.

I have checked this cam from time to time since it came online. Both eagles are very charismatic. Harriet is a gorgeous large lady, Ozzie is a sweetie.

October 27
I think Harriet is in front of Ozzie

November 28
I think this is Ozzie (sitting on one egg)  I noticed he has the same split in his neck feathers as does Dad Hornby

Here is the video of Hatch 2  that happened last night.  We now have two little ones to watch grow into beautiful eagles.

Sadness to report:  Eaglet E3 passed away in the early morning hours.  Appeared to be a robust healthy eaglet until around Jan 28th, then stopped eating, sat out in rain over the next days when the mother was there for protection (E4 burrowed under mom) then expired.  He remains in the nest today and E4 has been fed.

I believe E3 was 37 days old.

Southwest Florida Eagle Cam shared CROW - Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.'s photo.
9 hrs ·

It is with heavy hearts, we share the news that Ozzie passed away last evening. It was a gift to observe his and Harriet’s bond over the last three seasons and we will remember his dedication, commitment and love for many years to come. Fly High & Free Ozzie. The SWFL Eagle Cam Community will remember & cherish you always.

A little more info about this:

 Ozzie passed away last night at CROW due to complications from his recent injuries that included multiple severe lacerations and a broken toe in each foot. Ozzie was brought to CROW for a second time on Sunday, September 27, after he was found weak and injured in a North Fort Myers backyard. He arrived at CROW late at night in critical condition, unable to stand and fighting septicemia (a bacterial blood infection). It is highly likely these injuries were sustained from a fight with another bald eagle near the nest that was documented on the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam Facebook page. It was also reported that he had been entangled in barbwire.

A necropsy will be performed on Ozzie at the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study (SCWDS) at The University of Georgia and we will share those results with you when they become available. We would like to thank everyone for their support and unwavering belief in CROW during Ozzie’s rehabilitation and recent stay. Your endless words of encouragement carried the CROW staff through challenging times.

I have been following Ozzie's story, how sad to read that he succumbed to his injuries.
