Harriet has displayed resilience in enduring the losses of eaglets and her longtime mate. Harriet’s strength and determination kept her true to her goal. As she took another mate this nesting season, all hopes were for a year without problems. M15 proved to be an exceptional mate for Harriet and they succeeded in producing two eaglets, E7 and E8.
