The Southwest Florida eagle cam (SWFL) has live streamed a bald eagle’s nest in North Fort Myers, Florida, since September 2016. Millions have watched as mom and dad eagle, Harriet and M15, laid, incubated, and brooded over two eggs. On Dec 31, 2016, one egg hatched while the other was deemed nonviable. The resulting eaglet was named E9 (as he or she was Harriet’s ninth eagle to hatch since streaming first began in 2012), and over the months, E9 has grown into a strong juvenile eagle. E9 has less than two months left in the nest before finding independence, and viewers are still tuning in to the live eagle cam to see E9’s latest developments. You can watch the SWFL eagle cam streaming live online, 24/7, in the video player below.
The 2016-2017 live stream is Season 5 for the popular eagle cam. The cam first went live in 2012 and featured Harriet with her then mate Ozzie. The tree is located on Dick Pritchett’s private horse pasture and features a pond. The bald eagle’s nest is located in a slash pine tree approximately 50 feet in the air. There are three cams that stream live 24/7. Camera 1 is the main cam and is situated directly above the eagle’s nest. This cam provides a look into the nest and is what gives us exceptional footage of Harriet, M15, and E9.
