ABOVE LIVE VIDEO: Southwest Florida Eagle Cam – Cam 1
FORT MYERS, FLORIDA – The Southwest Florida Eagle Cam (SWFEC) is pleased to announce the area’s most beloved pair of bald eagles is expecting…AGAIN!
The two eggs, laid November 20 and November 23, are currently closing in on the average 35 day incubation period and expected to hatch on Christmas Day or shortly after.
Both parents have diligently taken turns incubating the eggs; maintaining the necessary temperatures embryos need for proper development.
Harriet and M15 will continue to nurture their eggs until they feel movement and the chick scratches the surface of the egg to break out. Once the hatchling has begun to breathe, it will make soft calls that the adults can hear.
Viewers of any age can watch and track all the action on the official SWFL Eagle Cam website, the official Facebook page, Twitter feed, Instagram account, Tumblr page and YouTube channel. Teachers or groups looking to use the cam as an educational resource or class project, can contact the SWFEC at email@example.com.
Celebrating 10 years of live streaming this season, the SWFL Eagle Cam has captured the magnificent bald eagle pair in the wild for all the triumphs and tribulations of raising their young. Since its inception in September 2012, the SWFEC has received more than 165 million views from over 190 different countries worldwide.
The SWFEC has also launched the first ever live 360 video eagle camera allowing viewers to experience real time 360 views of Harriet, M and any future eaglets. To view this new 360 video, click here.
