3/27/2020

Lady Hawk Our Muscovy Mom is seen a couple times at the pond today with her seven ducklings. Seems that we have lost 5 babies since yesterday sadly. She is seen swimming with them and then off on the edge of the pond bank. Cam 1 and pond cam coverage! Later in the afternoon, a raven swoops down fast over the water at 9:31 and circles around and comes back but Mom is ready and she flies up in the air and scares him off. In real time & slomo! The raven is seen waiting on the bank as Mom keeps her babies safely in the water and heads to the other side of the pond. Thank you for watching!

3/26/2020

Lady Hawk It seems our resident Muscovy duck Mom now has twelve new little ducklings to care for! She is seen swimming with these cuties in the pasture pond. Muscovy ducks are omnivorous, feeding on worms, insects, fish and reptiles. They also forage for larvae and pupae usually found under rocks, aquatic animals, snails and crabs. They also eat a variety of plant material, including weed, leaves, stems, seeds and roots, obtained by grazing or dabbling in shallow water. Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles ~ Super Cute Closeups of M15 ?? H & M Intimate Evening Discussions On the OCT! 3.17.20

3/20/2020

Lady Hawk M15 is happily incubating his eggs and gets up to take a quick break & flies to the outer attic. Zooming on the beauties - egg #3 is on the left & egg #4 on the right ?? There is a vulture seen flying in the distance beginning at 3:32. M returns to the nest and gives us some super cute photobombs as he looks up at the cam! And later towards dusk, Harriet is on the OCT when M joins her and they exchange pre-mating vocals. It looked like M was going to bond with her and then Harriet looked like she was going to give M her foot - but both changed their minds lol Harriet flies to the nest (in slomo!) and then M will follow and perch in the upper branches for the night. One day closer to pip watch! Thank you for watching!

SWFL Eagles_ Incubating & Protecting On The First Day Of Spring 03-19-20

3/19/2020

wskrsnwings M15 exchanged nest duties with Harriet early on this 1st day of spring morning. Harriet perched in the nest tree and pond snag before flying to the power poles to watch their territory. She was watchful before flying NW and did a flyabout over the stables early on. She later flew to one of the live pine trees behind the shopping center watchful of the nest area and to the south and SE. A Red-bellied woodpecker visited a pasture snag and a crow pestered Harriet.

SWFL Eagles~ Softshell Turtle Lays Eggs On Pond Bank! Snowy Egrets Watch! Anhinga Photobombs 3.16.20

3/17/2020

Lady Hawk An anhinga is seen swimming and comes ashore and heads up to the pylon and dries off its wing in the sunshine! Over across the pond, several snowy egrets are enjoying the water as a softshell turtle is on the bank laying her eggs in the sand. Watch her cover the eggs & bury them in the sand. The babies will hatch after an average incubation period of 60 to 80 days, depending on the temperature. Young soft-shelled turtles are between 1 and 1½ inches long at hatching, and they can live off their attached yolk for up to two weeks. Softshell turtles reach massive sizes, with adult females sometimes measuring two feet across the carapace (top of the shell); males are usually much smaller than females. Female turtles lay 10-30 eggs in neatly excavated holes in sandy areas near the water's edge. Last season, we saw a softshell turtle lay her eggs in the sand but unfortunately so did the ravens. As soon as the female returned to the water, the ravens uncovered and ate her eggs. Hopefully this year that will not happen. Thank you for watching!

3/17/2020

wskrsnwings H & M exchanged incubation duties at 7AM. Harriet perched briefly above the nest before flying to the poles. She returned to a west pasture snag after 9AM, watchful of the area before flying off again to the NW. On a short flight to the pasture snag, M15 got to stretch his wings and relieve himself. We are over halfway to hatches (egg #1 will be 35 days 3/28 and egg #2 will be 35 days 3/31).

SWFL Eagles ~ M15 Wants EGG TIME More Than Bonding! ?? Sweet Evening Exchange With Harriet! ????

3/17/2020

Lady Hawk M15 just loves the time he gets incubating their eggs! He is on the OCT (old cam tree) as the day starts to wane and Harriet is on the nest. He flies to the outer attic and Harriet quickly joins him. It looks like he wants to bond and jumps on her back for a half hearted attempt! But then just stops and stands there before flying to the nest instead to have his evening egg time!! I think his heart was set on incubation his eggies! ? Just over two hours later, Harriet returns to the nest and they have a sweet exchange as she takes over the evening shift. There is a reason why M15 has earned the honor of Best Dad of the Year!
