Two new statues are now placed at the entrance to Dick Pritchett Real Estate in North Ft. Myers, signifying you're entering the domain of Ozzie and Harriet, the bald eagles who have nested here for the past 8 years. This is a nice addition to the property and a rather fitting tribute, don't you think?  There's no question this is where you'll find Ozzie and Harriet!

Like clockwork, the two return here each fall. I've been observing them for a few years and it's a rare treat to see them soaring together.  I think this is the first time I actually captured them flying together . They're so majestic.  

Although the nest is located within a horse paddock on private property, the public is welcome to visit and watch Ozzie and Harriet. The Pritchett family also continues to provide a 2-camera live web feed of the nest, so you can get…well…a bird's eye view of what's going on up there, like this:

To watch the live feed just click here.  (I usually check in to see if anyone's home before setting out with my camera.)  This is the third season the cameras have been up and running.  The first year, a whopping 16 million viewers around the world tuned in to watch Ozzie and Harriet .  Wow!

Besides the new eagle statues there's another addition on the property this year which the casual observer might not pick up on.  That's coming up!

You got a wonderful shot of them soaring together! Thanks for the info on the link. I like to watch the Decorah Eagle cam, so I know I will enjoy this one too.

I have passed this along to Elenka. She follows lots of eagles' nests on web cameras.

That's a fantastic entrance!

The owners of this property are quite generous to let people visit the eagles on their property. And, the new eagle statues are a cool way to top those gates.

How nice that these people are so generous in sharing their resident eagles!
And I love your shot of O&H soaring. Gorgeous!
