It is good if he is looking for his own territory, but it is strange to no longer see E15. :D
:hi: sova

Yes, indeed. As someone said on FB: "No-one will forget you, E15!" :chick: :eagle:

(I follow a very nice FB Group with lots of fine pictures of the eagle family also in the new nest: https://www.facebook.com/groups/102377580341956/)

:hi: Abigyl

we will see - last time E15 was away only a week and returned :mrgreen:
If she took away for good - maybe she got the message when visiting the nest 2 for first time 8-)

BTW, in my pic above: M15's poop flew in the wind onto Harriet's back, she needs a bath :rotf:

Here is the map of the pastures - the new nest lies about in the point 5. Sometimes it is zoomed distantly from the cam 1 as just now (7.31 local time 14.31 LK time). Interference during the nesting season is of course not possible, so no close cam view from the nest 2 before next season is expected. We have to rely on the ground crew reports.

The map is copied from the post here: https://forum.hancockwildlife.org/viewt ... 05#p376405

In this picture from the Cam 1 the Nest 2 lies in the high dead tree in the background on the right.

On the Hancock Wildlife Foundation forum SW Florida Eagle Cam 2020 you can find pictures and videos taken by the ground crew about the new nest, like this post with video by wskrswings: https://forum.hancockwildlife.org/viewt ... 45#p386145 EDIT: the link corrected!

:hi: Solo,

yes, I know, also that the nest cam is in YT, but I am used to follow the original addresses. I have not taken YT to my hobby as I operate with a laptop, not a phone :D. What I find nice is the FB group I mentioned above, there are lots of ground crew pictures of the new nest among others.

There is a storm Eta coming near the nest area (the nest lies on the West coast of South Florida). The eagles know how to shelter from it, we hope the best. :2thumbsup:

Sorry, Abigyl, to have been unprecise - you are right, it is a black vulture.

Interesting view in the Cam360 at 16.40 LK time, mist on the lens? :puzzled:

As far as nestorations of the original nest are concerned, I think there is not enough soft and isolating material for egg laying, unfortunately it looks to me, that the eventual eggs will be laid in the new "West Wing" nest. :blush:
