There is an eagle nest near Ft Meyers with a web cam 6' above the nest.  There are 2 eggs in it with mommy and daddy taking turns sitting on the eggs..  One egg has a few cracks in it from the eaglet trying to get out..  I've been watching it a few hrs a day for 4 days already..  The cam is on 24/7 waiting for the eggs to hatch which should be in the next 24-48 hrs..  The nest is 5-6' across.. The female is about 3' long from beak to tail. The eggs are about the size of a tennis ball.. Last night, there were over 6,000 people watching from all over the world..  The chat works when moderators are there, but it might be full and hard to get in to say something.

I've been watching for hours every day for 10 days already.. I happened to be watching when the egg hatched and the baby crawled out about 6:30 Saturday morning. Within seconds, it went from a few thousand people to over 78 thousand watching from all over the world..

Are they now off the extinct list?....Thought for a while there was concern for their lacking numbers...

The other egg didn't hatch, but the one that did is doing well and is flying around getting ready to leave for his own life within a month or so.. It has a 6 foot wingspan and is about 2 feet long after starting out the size of a golf ball 3 months ago..
