Eagle cam captivates Florida with 2 eaglets

Want to see a warm-and-fuzzy bald eaglet peck through its eggshell?

'Harriet' laid two eggs last month and her nest can be seen on the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam. The first of two eggs hatched Tuesday morning and another is expected to hatch soon. 

Eagles normally mate for life, and Harriet was typically seen with her mate "Ozzie," but Ozzie died from an injury late last year. Harriet has now taken up with a younger bird.

Harriet is an older female that has fledged dozens of offspring since the early 1990s.
