SWFL Eagles_Lookin 4 Food: E17 Goes At Crow/Pond Visits/E's Fly To Adult/Vie 4 Food On Ground 5-6-21

5/6/2021

wskrsnwings It was a very foggy morning but that did not keep E17 & E18 from honing their survival skills, alert to any activity that might mean food. E17 perched with M15 in the OCT and both perched by M in the DSPS. E17 started to follow M when he left but got involved chasing a crow... almost caught it. E18 tracked a possible food opportunity and E17 followed soon after. E17 returned quickly but E18 was away for a while. Both saw M15 land on the ground with food in the west pasture and fought for the prey. E17 got it while E18 waited for an opportunity to steal. E17 wisely took the food to a tree to eat & was pestered by smaller birds. So he moved to another tree and E18 flew there too. They each stole and ate the food with E18 eventually returning to the nest. It was a great day of learning for 103 day old E17 & E18.

5/6/2021

Lady Hawk E17 is resting on the nest when a gust of wind blows one of the stick guard rails onto E17's back! The stick spooks E17 causing E17 to jump up in the air! lol In regular time and slomo! E17 then looks at that offending stick and comes to the side of the nest and picks it up to move it! Looks like Dad will have some work to do on the nest and reposition that stick as a guard rail! E17 then hops to the porch and up to the attic before flying off heading west! Thank you for watching!

5/4/2021

Lady Hawk M flies in with a whole fish and both E's scramble racing down to the nest. They battle over possession and E18 ends up the victor! E18 gets to eat the prized fish and E17 will go to the veranda and wait for an opportunity to steal. E18 is just about finished with the fish when Dad flies in with fish #2 at 12:49. Another battle for the fish - E18 rushes over and claims fish #2 and mantles and E17 grabs the leftover piece from fish #1. Double mantles as both E's have a fish now. E17 finishes eating and then eyes the fish E18 is eating! At 17:53 E17 goes after what is left from fish#2 and steals it from E18! E18 looks for a few scraps but is quite full so heads up to the attic with a full crop! E17 finishes the fish on the nest and joins E18 on the attic -best buddies again now that there is no longer any competition for food! Both E's are learning important lessons in each food battle!

SWFL Eagles_ *Shades of* E15... Each E "Claims" A Nest ?? 05-03-21

5/3/2021

wskrsnwings As I was watching the E's this morning, each perching above one of H & M's nests, I thought about how E15 last season thought the nest was his/hers. And to see E18 perching above the natal nest and E17 perching above the unused Nest 2, it brought a smile to my face. The E's seeing any nest as the possibility for food was imprinted on them from Day 1. No food was delivered while I was there today (two fish deliveries by M15 an hour or so later). The E's perched together in the CSPS for a short time but mostly they watched the territory from their perches above the nests and warned away the dive bombing smaller birds. And a Red-headed Woodpecker visited the fallen strangler fig. The E's are 100 days old today!

SWFL Eagle ~E18 Protects Fish From E17's Steal Attempt! Crows Give Chase; Playing At The Pond 5.2.21

5/3/2021

Lady Hawk Early this morning, E18 drops down to the nest and stands over the fish nestover that was left over from yesterday's late evening delivery by Dad. E17 and Harriet are on the attic and are vocal - E18 mantles and gets ready to defend her fish! E17 drops to the nest to make a steal attempt only E18 lunges aggressively at E17 and warns this is her fish! E17 relents and goes back up to the attic and E18 gets to eat the rest of the fish. This was important to see E18's aggression this time as most of the food deliveries over the past three days have gone to E17. E17 is seen flying off the nest and crows will follow. They all do a flyby in front of the cam 2 tree and then are seen following E18 over across the street until E18 returns to the nest. E18 will fly off the nest and this time take a nestover and fly to the DSPS - E17 will immediately follow! These two follow one another through out the day. They both perch in the DSPS and then both go to the pond! E18 heads to the water to take a sip and to bottom dip and play around. E17 hangs out under the palm tree and then comes to the side of the bank. E18 walks over and they flap at one another. E17 takes off and E18 flies to the hubcab tree before flying back to the nest. Both E's lay down together as bonded siblings. Thank you for watching!

5/2/2021

Lady Hawk M flies into the nest with roadkill armadillo and E18 is on the attic and drops down and claims it. E17 comes flying to the nest and mantles and grabs a piece of it from underneath E18 as they both battle it out for possession of the prey! A fierce battle takes place and E18 is the winner! E17 will head to the attic while E18 tries to eat this unusual prey item. After a while, E17 drops down and goes after the prey and steals it from E18. E18 will keep an eye on it and will go back to try and reclaim it. Closeups of the foot/paw of the armadillo and its tough skin/pelt. E18 steals it back and starts working on it again. All of sudden M flies in with a fish and E18 grabs it and E17 grabs the armadillo and Dad just gets out of the way FAST! Mayhem on the nest! E18 eats the fish quickly and then goes back to claim the armadillo. They both end up tugging at it and E17 gets it. E18 heads up to the attic to rest after this epic food battle today!

Lady Hawk M flies in to the nest with a piece of roadkill mammal and E17 is first to the nest and E18 flies in right after and they both battle for possession of the prey! Check out that big mantle with the tail spread on E18! They both continue to mantle - each E got a piece to eat. E18 may have gotten a bigger piece and was still eating - E17 comes around to try and steal it but E18 says no way and keeps mantling.

SWFL Eagles_ The E's Favorite Things: Flying, Food & The CSPS 04-30-21

4/30/2021

wskrsnwings The E's enjoyed their favorite "things" this morning with both flying to and perching in the CSPS (church side pond snag). Both E's 'cleaned' up the snag biting small and large pieces of bark from it. They hopped & flew to the different branches there. E17 also visited the DSPS (drive side pond snag, mossy pine, OCT (old cam tree), the leaning palm and the pond. I think the best part of their morning though was M15 delivering breakfast which both ate from. Crows continue to pester and dive bomb the E's and M15. The E's are 97 days old today.

4/29/2021

wskrsnwings 95 day old E17 & E18 were busy in the pasture area this morning taking flights back and forth across the pond and the pond snags. E17 spent time sitting on the fence and E18 spent time hanging by one talon from a pond snag branch. E18 released their hold and recovered perfectly flying to a branch under the nest to tell Harriet all about it. E17 returned to the attic at the same time. The crows were very pesky today and one brazen crow even sat between H & E17 in the nest tree.

SWFL Eagles ~ E17 Misses The Nest & Falls Below It! Too Dark To See Where E17 Landed! 4.27.21

4/28/2021

Lady Hawk E18 is on the attic and E17 on the outer attic as darkness falls. E17 tries to return to the nest and misses it and falls somewhere below the nest. Both cam 2 and 360 footage show E17 falling. The cam operator tries to zoom in on the tree but it is just too dark to see anything clearly. Hopefully E17 landed on a lower branch and will stay there perched for the rest of the night and did not fall to the ground. We will be looking for E17 as soon as it gets light outside.

Lady Hawk E17 & E18 continue to practice their flying skills today by chasing one another over the pasture and flying from tree to tree! E18 flies off the attic first and E17 follows as they soar to the pasture and land in the CSPS (church side pond snag) and then fly over the pond!

SWFL Eagles_ Action Packed AM: Sibling Chase, Leaning Palm Perch, Pond Visits, Breakfish 04-26-21

4/26/2021

wskrsnwings E17 & E18 spent the morning in the pond area "outdoing" each other going in & out of the pond. E18 found the leaning palm by the pond and perched there quite a while even though the crows objected. There was a sibling chase as the E's followed each other from the CSPS (church side pond snag) over the pond and back again. They tumbled and chased each other i it was great to watch them testing those skills. On that tandem flight, E17 returned to the CSPS and E18 went out to the fallen fig, finding sticks and bark to work on. M arrived to the nest with fish that E17 flew for and claimed while E18 watched and decided to go to the pond rather than eat. A crow brought a large roll to a snag and M15 watched intently, going after the crow but flew on when other crows descended on him. The E's are 93 days old today.

SWFL Eagles ~ E18 Discovers The Pond & Takes FIRST BATH! ?? E17 Joins Sibling & They Rumble! 4.25.21

4/25/2021

Lady Hawk E18 flies down to the ground and discovers the pond and a whole new world of fun and enjoyment opened up today! E17 was perched on the DSPS and watched as E18 played along the bank and then waded into the water and began to hop and run with wings outstretched! E18 found some palm fronds to play with and took sips of water for the first time! M15 had taken a bath was seen drying his wings on the old cam tree while keeping his eagle eye on E18 down at the pond. E18 does a butt dip and wing dip and then will dunk into the water enjoying her first bath! That must have felt wonderful! E17 is watching the whole time and finally can't stand it any longer and flies down to the ground and comes over and stands on the bank while E18 is enjoying the water at 17:31 E17 did not attempt to come to the water's edge but was content to just watch E18 splashing around. E18 comes out and shakes her wings and then E17 lunges at E18 and we have our first ground rumble at the pond! It was short lived with both E17 & E18 just throwing their wings around at 21:10. A few seconds later, E17 lunges once more at E18 and they rumble again! E17 will fly off to the DSPS and E18 will head over to the fence and perch there overlooking the service road at 23:44. E18 stays on the fence preening and perching until a truck comes by and startles E18 into flying to the fence on the office side of the pond. What an exciting day of new adventures for both E's but especially E18 who was brave enough to venture into the pond. Who knows, maybe E18 will become our new pond princess this season!

All of a sudden E17 got spooked by something and jumps off the nest and lands on a branch right below the nest! E18 gets up and is watching E17 below. I did not see an owl or anything that might have caused E17 to get spooked - in regular time and slomo!
