The first egg (E5) was laid November 19 and hatched (37 days) Dec. The 2nd egg (E6) was laid November 22 and hatched (35 days) Dec. (CROW) for evaluation after showing signs of disorientation and injury.After 97 days of care to recover from a broken left clavicle and a broken left coracoid bone, Ozzie was released back into the wild near the nest.The young eaglets continued to thrive and develop into juvenile eagles, fledging the nest on April 16th (E7) and May 3th (E8).
We are a working office and your compliance with the eagle watching etiquette is most appreciated.
We spent over 40 hours researching and evaluating 10 webcams.
Camera #1 is positioned six feet above the nesting tree and is equipped with night vision or infrared light, which emits no actual light. The birds do not see or hear anything coming from the camera.
Camera #2 is located approximately 60 feet from the nest and has the ability to capture images of the nest action outside the view of Camera #1.
Both successfully hatched eaglets (E7 hatched January 26 at am (day 38); E8 hatched January 27 at pm (day 36)) and spending the first few weeks of life developing on schedule. 9, E8 had to be cut free from the nest after getting monofilament fishing line wrapped around its leg and foot cutting off circulation and causing swelling.
E8 was taken to the CROW clinic for treatment and released back to the nest 3 days later.
On Saturday, September 19th, Ozzie made an appearance at the nest. 2012-2013 Nesting Season marked the first year the nest was streamed live to the world.
On September 27th, after seen fighting with a male eagle in the area, Ozzie was found injured and again admitted back into CROW’s care. 2013-2014 Nesting Season brought many challenges to both the viewers and eagles. Over 16 million viewers tuned in to watch Adult Eagles Harriet and Ozzie raise their 2 eaglets from birth to fledge.
Unfortunately Egg #1 was not viable and did not hatch. Being the only eaglet in the nest, E9 thrived and grew on schedule.
Even setting a record for the earliest fledge when accidentally fledging on March 14th at .
Luckily, Harriet & M returned to the area and got to work in September and the nest was in great shape for the laying of their two eggs in November.
