SWFL Eagles ~ Harriet Shelters E19 & E20 From A Severe Thunderstorm! Perfect Mombrella! 1.16.22

Lady Hawk - Harriet drops down to the nest to cover the E's when she senses a rainstorm approaching. For the next few hours, severe weather with strong wind and rain and even a tornado was confirmed as it moved through the Fort Myers area (close to the nest). Harriet protects her E's from the brunt of the storm and shelters them - she is the perfect Mombrella. This is one instance where it is important for the female to be on the nest. With their larger size (25-30%) over the males - this allows the female more space to cover their eaglets and protect them from the elements. Harriet gets up and shakes out the rain from her wings, heads to the attic briefly and then returns back to the nest. When the storm is over, Harriet will go to the attic & we see some nice views of E19's pin feathers! Thank you for watching!
