This is a wild eagle nest and anything can happen. While we hope that all eaglets hatched in this nest will grow up healthy and successfully fledge each season, things like sibling rivalry, predators, natural disaster as well as territorial disputes can affect this eagle family and may be difficult to watch.
In order to protect the eagles and their nest, the specific location of this nest is private and cannot be disclosed.
As our viewers will remember, since Gretchen Butler has been carefully keeping records of this Bald Eagle nest, located in Northeast Florida. At the same time, they protected their nest from all intruders, keeping eggs and eaglets safe. However, the season was very different, as several large mature eagles disturbed the peace and tranquility of this nest. The expectations of the season ended in heartache as Juliet returned to the nest with an injury and was subsequently driven from the nest by a rival just days before the eggs were to hatch, leaving Romeo to do the work of two.
When an egg hatched on Christmas Daya female eagle following Romeo to the nest swooped down and took the hatchling. This was not A2. A2 continued to be seen with visiting male eagle, Samson, and they evolved into a bonded pair.
Scalable, flexible access control
For months, our viewers have called this beautiful eagle Gabby because she is so talkative, and in October she was officially given the elegant name Gabrielle by the NEFL team. Samson hatched in the very nest featured in this site on December 23, This was a happy nest; food was in abundance, and there was very little sibling rivalry between Samson and older sibling, Delilah, who hatched on December Samson and Delilah both successfully fledged the nest, gained strength and honed their hunting skills.
We know that Samson left the area on April 22,at days old. It was four years later that Samson was seen back at the nest, with positive identification being made by photographic markers and also by his flattened toe, which had been observed while he was still a nestling.
The following links have been prepared to help our viewers identify the differences between Samson and Gabrielle. Samson appeared back at the nest on August 26, and began bringing in sticks and moss, giving us an indication he was claiming the nest and preparing for the season ahead. His mate, Gabrielle, appeared on September Since then, the pair was seen with each other, and sleeping in the nest tree or nearby. There was definitely a changing of the guard in the Hamlet. On Monday, January 13, at p. A pip was first visible on Feb. The second egg, NE23, was laid January 16, at p.
A pip was observed February 20 at a.
On April 20 Jules officially branched and perched higher on April Romy officially branched on April Jules fledged on May 7, and Romy fledged on May Jules has not been spotted since her fledge day, but Romy continued to frequent the nest and surrounding area with Samson providing for him. Gabrielle left the area the day after Jules fledged but returned on June 15 then departing the area in the 25th.
Samson was last seen in the area on July It is possible she and Jules are together and may yet return to the nest or be spotted this season. Both first-time parents did an amazing job in caring for their offspring.

This is a new beginning for all of us as Samson continues the legacy of the Hamlet. See a timeline of the activities of Samson and Gabrielle. Through the years, the nest has grown considerably in size and weight, likely weighing close to a ton. As the season unfolds, a new chapter will be written about this nest and its resident eagles, and we will be watching with you, as we all continue to learn more about Samson and Gabrielle. The educational impact of our high-definition nest cams has been phenomenal, providing unprecedented insight into the Bald Eagle nesting process.
Us on social media!
This season, we have to abandon our familiar expectations, as there are two new eagles laying claim to the nest. This project also focuses on conservation, habitat protection, and the dangers that eagles still Chat pa cams in the wild. In the end we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught. To enhance the educational experience, a moderated chat is embedded on the camallowing viewers to comment and ask questions about the eagles.
Knowledgeable and friendly moderators help guide the discussion and provide insight. AEF also encourages students and groups who are studying eagles or related topics to reserve time in the chat where their questions can be answered. This has been a hugely successful endeavor, and we have welcomed many classrooms with students of all ages. Teachers across the nation have written us with glowing compliments about the positive impact this experience has had on their students.
One 4K cam and three high-definition cams are available on this. Three are mounted on the nest tree and provide different views of the nest.
One cam is mounted on a nearby tree at a lower angle and provides a long range view of the nest tree and the canopy. If you watch for a while, you may be lucky enough to see eagles flying to and from the tree, and when the eaglets get to a certain size, you will see them begin to branch and ultimately fledge the nest.
The four views will be shown at the bottom of the screen as thumbnails, and you can simply click the view you want to watch. At night, an infrared light is turned on.
The eagles cannot see this light; it is outside their visible spectrum of light. Neither can humans.
If you were at the nest site, looking up at the tree at night, you would only see light from the moon or stars. The infrared light is converted into visible light black and white by the camera. You may need to do this often. For a smoother chat experience, please use the Discord app for PC, phone or tablet.
