The 2013-2014 nesting season was the inaugural of the NE Florida Eagle CAM. It brought international attention to one of NE Florida’s breeding pair of Bald Eagles. Thousands followed Romeo and Juliet as their two hatchlings; Samson and Delilah matured, branched and finally fledged. Last year’s first egg was laid November 14. A second followed on November 17. Delilah hatched December 20th, Samson December 23rd. A third solar-powered camera was added this year, giving viewers a second close-up angle from which to watch events unfold.
They have returned to this same nest for several years. The following video is from the 2013-2014 nesting season.
