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 and have returned year after year.
This year they are excited to have a live look into their Southwest Florida nest. They have installed a camera that will film the birds 24/7 and stream live video directly to this site. HERE
The nest resides 60 feet above the ground, in a Slash Pine tree and the camera is positioned 6 feet above the nest. It is attached to a tree limb using no screws or nails in order to preserve the tree. The camera's night vision is an infrared light which emits no actual light. Nor does it make any noise. The birds do not see or hear anything coming from the camera.
Tho there is no history on the couples egg laying, there is on the Chicks-
