Hello Sallie, It's lovely to see the tree in the field where the eagle has it's nest, and I enjoyed your fabulous close up images of Harriet in her nest. The horse has unusual markings, and a friendly egret for company, another super shot.
I'm glad you are safe, and escaped any damage that tornadoes make.
Stay safe,and keep well.

I love watching the Eagle cam and haven't watched it this year. Thanks for the link! Enjoy your weekend. It's dreary here this morning but I'm happy to have a day inside! Hugs!


Nice pics of the Eagle. I have never been lucky enough to get a pic of one on the nest. Take care and be safe.


Florida still looks good to me. Even with a possible tornado. If you are ready for a hurricane, I guess your house is also ready for a tornado. Enjoy the good weather and warm temps!

Hello Sallie,
I am glad you were safe, the tornadoes are scary. Love the Bald Eagles and the horse with the Egret. Great photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend.


Cam's are cool but better real time and getting the bigger picture. Glad you came through the storm.

I enjoy watching wildlife cams. We have an eagle's nest not too far from our farm. We have seen them getting a "snack" close to our property. Thanks for linking up and have a great week ahead.

Wow, beautiful eagle mother <3 In Finland wildlife cameras are also very popular these days. Wishing sunny weekend.

Glad you were not hit by a tornado! Love the eagles!

Lorrie Orr

Watching eagles raising their eaglets is a fun things to do. Glad the tornado didn't cause too much damage.

Glad you are safe. I really liked seeing the Eagles posted on your blog. Thank you.

Peter B.

Wow, your weather changes quickly! Pretty cool to be able to see the eagle's nest live and in person.

Jim, Sydney, Australia

Great captures.


That Sunday I woke up at 3:30 AM to rain and wind. By late afternoon the sky was blue. That's Florida. Love the eagle nest and the beautiful parents.

Joe Todd

Enjoyed the post. Ice, snow and cold in Ohio LOL

Nice eagle close up. I read vicariously for the warm sun. Thinking about 'bragging rights' and the wild ponies we saw in the Grayson Highlands VA.

I am totally enamoured that you have given a name to the Bald Eagle, and Harriet seems about perfect. Once an animal has a name, it becomes very special, like a close friend, and you always want to help a friend, don't you?

Veronica Lee

So glad you are safe from the storm, Sallie.

Fantastic photos of the eagle!

Have a great rest of the week!

Sallie, Love the update on the eagles! Have a great week. Sylvia D.


Nice shot of the eagle sitting on the nest. Sounds like the weather got a bit crazy done there. Take care, Sallie and stay safe.


Hi Sallie, glad to read that your Fl weather has been warmer than ours here in NH. Thanks for your email.


i enjoyed seeing how far away the eagle tree is - nice that they are keeping the eagle safe!! she is so pretty, so regale and majestic!!

what an amazing horse, the coat is so unusual!!

i am going to check out the webcam!!


I did enjoy this Blog and my Virtual holiday! Your weather forecast hit our news, so I was glad to learn that all is well with you.
The resident pair of eagles are fascinating to watch.

The resident eagle pair are lovely to see and read about.


We have had snow and today the sun is shining. How wonderful you are having 75 degrees! It is snowed yesterday and it is 33 deg. here, going up to 38, woo-hoo! Glad nothing came of that tornado warning. I saw something on the news where a lady was saying she saw it coming over her neighbor’s roof. Outstanding photos! Those eagle’s nests are huge! Such a wonderful opportunity to see it in person. The close-up of the eagle’s face is amazing, those eyes! Happy day to you Sallie and thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Sharon Wagner

My favorite eagle cam video is the one where an eagle brings a hat to the nest and his mate flies away with it, dropping it in the ocean. So funny!


Pleased to hear you are all safe after the tornado. The eagle doesn't seem phased by the unseasonal weather.

Penelope Notes

I watched the webcam and, wow, what a magnificent creature sitting on top of the world, feathers ruffled in the breeze and looking beautiful.

David Gascoigne

Tornados in Florida in January? Nope, there's no such thing as climate change!

I am glad you are safe and well. We've also had torrential rain here. It's not always sunny! Love the eagle shots.


Sallie - glad you are safe from the storm! And the eagles too!!! How interesting that the eggs have already hatched there. We won't see our eagles on the nest for months yet! Do the eagles raise more than one brood a year?

Linda P

I'm glad to know that you are safe. Tornadoes must be disconcerting. The activity in the eagles' nest must be fascinating to watch. Thank you for showing that they're in a protected area but can be viewed on the webcam instead. Have a good week.

New Jersey Memories

Those are great photos of the eagle! Thanks for sharing.

ellen b.

That's fun that you can follow along on the cam and go to see them in person, too. Those cattle egrets are something else. Glad your place was safe from the tornadoes!

Alan Bates

I think it is totally cool that more and more people are giving wildlife preservation some thought although much of it is by webcams but it is not practical for everybody to show up in person.


I follow this nest on Facebook, saw the hatching of the eggs and enjoy everything they post...its so fun to see how quickly they grow. Its fun to see the horse with his personal groomers followinf along. Im glad that storm missed you guys...we just got hit with ICE lost the power for about 6 hrs that was not fun.

Amy Franks

I've never seen an eagle before but I did look up your temperatures and apparently 75 is like 23 deg celsius here so that's pretty decent and warm.

Lavender Dreams

We saw the report of the tornado in your area and the damage. I'm glad you are OK! It was a crazy day with the wind and a tree came down in our neighborhood but didn't hit a house. Love your photos. Take care! Hugs!

Dina Johnston

Glad you guys were safe down there. I would also stop by all the time if I lived close by. Even though it's fun seeing them on the cam it would be great to see them in person.


Love the photos of the Eagle and the nest. I am glad the eaglets are doing well, Harriet is a good mother. It is nice seeing the horse with the cattle egret. I am glad you and your neighborhood did not have any damage from the tornado. Take care, enjoy your day! Have a happy new week!


It is so interesting to watch the eagles take care of their young. You never know what they will bring into the nest to eat. I did not hear about tornadoes in Florida! I"m glad no one was hurt.

A peaceful place to raise a family.
