FORT MYERS, Fla.(WFTS) - A camera is set up next to a bald eagle’s nest in Fort Myers where two eaglets have hatched this week.
The live feed is available by clicking the video box below.
They belong to Ozzie and Harriet: two bald eagles that made this property home back in 2007.
Since they have been there, four bald eagles have been born.
The nest is located in a slash pine tree, 60 feet above the ground. The camera, equipped with an infrared sensor for night viewing, emits no light and is located about 6 feet above the nest.
The latest eggs were laid at the end of November. The nest is labeled LEO26B in the Florida State Monitoring Program.
The nesting season begins in Southwest Florida on October 1. The eagles remain there until April or May.
According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the bald eagle population has been slowly increasing. In 2007, the species was taken off the endangered list.
The Florida state monitoring program says there are 133 bald eagle nests in just a 25-mile radius of Ozzie and Harriet’s.
Note: A short commercial will play before the live eagle's nest video:
