2020 Season

On January 29, 2021 (approximately 1:30pm): E17 and E18 were removed from the nest by CROW when concern for the eaglet’s health was noticed (eyes swollen and crusty). E17 and E18 were re-nested by CROW on February 5, 2021 at 9:41:00am. Harriet returned to the nest at 2:38pm and M15 returned at 4:02pm. Food was brought to the nest February 6, 2021 at 8:41am. From CROW: MARCH 16, 2021: E17 & E18 EYE SWAB RESULTS: Swabs of the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam eaglets infected eyes came back positive for Avian chlamydiosis. Avian chlamydiosis is a bacterial disease caused by Chlamydophila psittaci (C. psittaci), which is carried commonly by birds. This finding is consistent with our cytology results which allowed our treatment to be effective. Thanks to the incredible work by our team of veterinarians, technicians and wildlife rehabilitators, the eaglets were returned to their nest healthy and have continued to grow and thrive!
