  • Romeo and Juliet are under attack

    I know not everyone is interested, but for those who are here is an update for the attacks over the past two days. R&J are about 17 years old and have probably been through this before without the video from the cameras. It is terrible to see this in real life. What they must go through. Keep R&J in your thoughts for a speedy recovery and successful hatch of their two little ones, number 20 and 21 for them

    For two days, R & J have had to fight off adult intruders and also a sub-adult intruder from their nest and territory. Nature is very cruel.
    Yesterday, Juliet suffered a cut on her beak and today got in another fight and injured the other side of her beak. Romeo was on the eggs when he was directly attacked by a female adult(females are larger than males by several pounds). He viciously fought her off while protecting the eggs and then he returned to incubation without any injury to himself. Juliet picked up the fight and continued to escort the adult away from their territory.
    Tonight, Juliet is on a close by branch recuperating and getting some much needed rest. Romeo is on high alert incubating the eggs and will probably stay awake all night. The eggs were left uncovered for a couple hours during the fighting and their condition will not be known until their PIP date which is on or about Dec 20th. The eggs are deep in a nest egg bowl and the compost is generating some heat with the mild FL air temp so fingers crossed the eggs will be viable.
    There is a new streaming camera set up but the address is still the same nefleaglecam.org.

      No link to the nest?

            PIP date is Thursday, 12/20. There will be 2,000+ viewers on PIP watch waiting for the little guys to break out.
