There are new photos and videos of E9 showing how much the little eaglet has grown since hatching on Dec 31, 2016. M15 flew into the Southwest Florida eagle’ nest with a fish that was still visibly flopping. Harriet was heard squawking and it’s possible she was very excited about the fish and that a possible predator was following M15 as he flew to the nest. E9 can be seen moving about the nest and eating the fish. Soon, E9 will begin to self-feed before taking first flight and ultimately leave the nest for good.
Harriet and M15 are mated for life and there isn’t another eagle in each other’s lives. Once E9 leaves, Harriet and M15 will visit their current nest but will also spend more time away from it. The live cam will go down after E9 departs but are often up and running at the beginning of the eagle mating season which begins in October.
Are you excited to see how much E9 has grown each day? If you miss a day or two of the live eagle cam, you might be surprised at just how much E9 changes.
You can watch the live eagle cam in the video player at the top. Check out the video taken by Lady Hawk of M15 bringing the fish to the nest.
