The 2013 - 2014 Northeast Florida Bald Eagle Nesting Season has come to a close. Two eaglets were hatched, grew up healthy and strong under the expert care and watchful eyes of their two loving and experienced parents. Food was abundant, and the eaglets thrived. Sibling rivalry was always at a minimum, and our viewers rejoiced in spending time watching all the activities in the nest.

It's a major task to install the equipment necessary to videostream a wild nest. Many people were involved, including donors, tree climbers, arborists, video camera technicians, electricians, wildlife conservation experts, property owners, cable TV technicians, webmasters, nest-watch volunteers, etc.
