UPDATE Jan. 9, 2019: Juliet was last seen at the nest on December 17, 2018 following an apparent territorial fight as observed by her injury which occurred days prior. Romeo has not been seen since December 26, after the newly-hatched eaglet in the nest was unfortunately taken by a large eagle that likely equated the hatchling to “food." Bald Eagles have been seen at the nest, but we cannot confirm that any are a bonded pair. The future of this nest season continues to unfold.

The American Eagle Foundation works in cooperation with the USFWS to determine the best course of action at all of its cam locations.

The decision to allow the natural course of events to occur at the NEFL nest was a difficult one to make. Ultimately, it was determined that there was no basis for intervention as there were potentially both optimistic and undesirable outcomes that could have occurred. As the eagle population continues to rebound in the lower 48 states—Florida being one of the most populated states—we remain grateful to have Bald Eagle cams to see the daily successes and struggles unfold in these nests—raw, real, and unscripted by man..

Thank you to all who have displayed love, care, and concern regarding the unfortunate outcome with NE20 that took place on Christmas Day. As AEF watched alongside thousands of viewers, we too were saddened by the events that took place. We also empathize with our audience who have adopted Romeo & Juliet as their own over the past several years. We hope that our viewers continue to watch, as we remain hopeful that Romeo and Juliet will return at some point—or embrace the presence of whatever eagle pair makes this special nest “home.”

Historically, Romeo & Juliet lay two eggs each season, resulting in baby eaglets entering the world in mid-to-late December, after an average incubation period of 35 days. As hatch time approaches, all eyes will be peeled for the first pip or breakthrough of the egg shell by the baby inside. Then, thousands of viewers settle down to watch these babies grow and develop from downy bobble-heads to feisty and magnificent Eaglets, ready to take their first flight into what will be a steep learning curve of survival in the wild.

To enhance the educational experience, a moderated chat is embedded on the cam page, allowing viewers to comment and ask questions about the eagles. Knowledgeable and friendly moderators help guide the discussion and provide insight. AEF also encourages students and groups who are studying eagles or related topics to reserve time in the chat where their questions can be answered. This has been a hugely successful endeavor, and we have welcomed many classrooms with students of all ages. Teachers across the nation have written us with glowing compliments about the positive impact this experience has had on their students. Nest History

Beginning October 1, 2013, the American Eagle Foundation (AEF) began providing live video streaming from a wild eagle nest located near the NE coast of Florida. The nest is located about 80′ up in a Longleaf Pine tree, and was built by the resident eagles approximately eleven years ago. Through the years, the nest has grown considerably in size and weight (likely weighing close to a ton).

In late August or early September, the eagle pair usually return to this nest to begin their nesting cycle, which includes bonding, mating, nestorations, egg-laying, incubation, hatching, and raising their brood until their youngsters fledge and are able to fend for themselves. Mom and Dad typically remain in the nest area for 30-45 days after their young have fledged/migrated, enjoying some well-deserved time alone together in their special Florida habitat. Then, Dad will head north for cooler, less humid climates first, and Mom will leave several days later. The following breeding season, they return like clockwork and start their nesting, mating, and family-raising process all over again. About Our Cams

Three high-definition cams are available on this page. Two are mounted on the nest tree and provide different views of the nest. The third cam is mounted on a nearby tree at a lower angle and shows the nest tree and the canopy. If you watch for a while, you may be lucky enough to see eagles flying to and from the tree, and when the eaglets get to a certain size, you will see them begin to branch and ultimately fledge the nest.
