FT. MYERS, FLORIDA – It’s another year for Dick Pritchett Real Estate’s Eagle Cam as bald eagles Harriet and M15 welcomed their fourth and fifth eaglets in three years as a mated pair.
E10, otherwise known as Eaglet 10, hatched around 8 p.m. Tuesday night. E11 hatched Wednesday around 4 p.m.
Last year, E9 (Eaglet 9), was the sole eaglet on the nest after one of the eggs never hatched and was buried into the nest by M15 after it wasn’t viable.
According to Dick Pritchett Real Estate Company, being the only eaglet in the nest, E9 thrived and grew on schedule. Even setting a record for the earliest fledge last season when it accidentally fledged on March 14. Making a triumphant return to the nest after its accidental fledge, E9 learned all the fundamentals of survival from Harriet & M and was last seen in the nest area on May 2.

He loves his role as Dad and gladly incubates for a few minutes until Harriet returns and they share some sweet moments together as new parents.
