Skywatch Friday: Eagles in the Nest

A friend told me about an eagle’s nest in North Fort Myers, Florida, not far from where I was vacationing. I had to check it out. Here is what I found. 

The eagle nest (tree at left) is found on Bayshore Road near I-75 in North Fort Myers, Florida. The male eagle is sitting on a dead tree at the right.

An eagle cam is set up to document the growth of two unnamed eaglets born on Christmas day, 2013. You can find more pictures of the eagles at https://www.facebook.com/SouthwestFloridaEagleCam   Here is a close up of Ozzie taken by Greg M. Hill on January 12.
