Matlacha Eagle Cam

Millions of people are now familiar with Ft. Myers realtor Dick Pritchett's Eagle Cam,  His website documents the 24/7 family life of the bald eagles known as Ozzie and Harriet that have nested on his property since 2006.  In my on backyard off Matlacha we have another pair of bald eagles that I call Fred and Wilma.  They've been returning to the same nest every winter for almost as long and have managed to produce three chicks each year.  That's rare with Florida eagles since most mating pairs only raise two young, like Ozzie are Harriet are currently doing.  Here are the latest photos I took of the nest with Wilma tending to her three kids off Matlacha.
