Nest Activity for Nov. 14, 2013

Heads or Tails Today was not the typical beginning to Ozzie and Harriet’s day. There were not many early morning vocals. The brief early morning visit to the nest was not until 6:18 am.  Harriet seemed very calm and quiet and spent time lying in the nest bowl.  Ozzie and Harriet both performed beautiful fly-ins and fly–outs from the nest with sticks. One impressive fly-in happened when Ozzie delivered a fish for brunch as Harriet was in quick pursuit vocalizing all the way. Harriet appears to love her fish gifts… Read More »Nest Activity for Nov. 14, 2013

The ABC’s of Eagle Birds & The Bees

Watch the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam Live here: Picture of Harriet & Ozzie Mating: (Photo: Desiree) Mating doesn’t mean eggs will be laid – nor does it mean eggs that are laid are viable. The male sperm can stay vital and alive for up to 7 days or so. Once the sperm pierce a female ova (egg) the ova has to find its way to the entrance of the oviduct (usually in less than 30 seconds).

The Fish That Tried To Get Away- Video from Wed. Nov 13 Edited footage of early morning. The wonderful Ozzie Shuffle in the nest bowl, the fish (6:51:50) that was still moving when they both fly into the nest together, and Ozzie appeared to almost trip on a stick he brought into the nest, appears maybe to have caught on the side of the nest (the stick), but Ozzie recovered very well ~ 7:53:22 Video by dragonlainey

Harriet and then Ozzie arrived on the nest.They proceeded to vocalize and engage in their affectionate sparring some refer to as “beaking”.

Summary: Nest Activity – Monday, November 11, 2013

Didn’t get to watch the cams yesterday? Here is what you missed: Morning: Vocal greetings began early at 4:00am nest time. Ozzie arrived at the nest before dawn and began his nest bowl fluffing. Harriet arrived shortly after and proceeded to help. Ozzie really likes to do this task himself so an early morning discussion with vocals and “beaking” took place for a while. Harriet seemed to win this argument as Ozzie left her to try out the nest bowl with a shimmy of her own. Ozzie’s day was filled with… Read More »Summary: Nest Activity – Monday, November 11, 2013
