Southwest Florida’s beloved pair of bald eagles is expecting, and the births can be watched live on camera.
The two eagles are expected to hatch anytime between now and New Year’s Day.
American bald eagles Harriet and her mate, M15, are awaiting the arrivals of their two eaglets, and thousands of people are watching. According to the website, the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam was launched in October 2012 when more than 16 million viewers watched as Eagles Ozzie and Harriet raised their two eaglets.
“Since 2012, we have been providing 24/7 live video stream of an active pair of bald eagles in their nest. Each season brings many smiles, laughs and even some tears. We hope you will tune in to watch these special raptors and fall in love with them like we have,” Dick Pritchett Real Estate said on its website.
Each year during the fall, Ozzie and Harriet continued to expand their family.
In March 2015, Ozzie was found injured by Florida Fish and Wildlife officers and taken to a clinic for rehabilitation after he showed signs of disorientation. Ozzie was treated and released back into the wild near the nest.
