Connie and Clive have 2 eggs!

11 December 2022

None of us will forget the tragedy that struck the Barrier Islands off the coast of Florida with Hurricane Ian. Both Andy and Lena’s Osprey brand new Osprey platform was destroyed along with the new cameras. Connie and Clive had their nest tree torn apart along with all the new camera equipment.

Well, the Bald Eagle cam is up and working and guess what? Connie and Clive are incubating two eggs!

Here is the link to their camera:

At the NEFlorida nest of Gabby, V3 is working hard to impress her. Gabby appears to be cautious in making a decision as to who will be her mate since Samson has now been missing for more than a fortnight. Samson’s talons will be hard to fill and I am glad that Gabby is being careful.

Gabby was chortling with V3.

We wait. I would still like to see Samson fly in well enough to take on any intruders and keep his Gabby. It is difficult for everyone when there is such a huge unknown – what happened?

This is just a quick hello from the kittens to let you know about Captiva! The service is a bit sporadic. I do not see the Osprey nest cam up yet on Captiva. Take care everyone. See you soon. Thanks to Window to Wildlife for getting everything back working and to NEFL-AEF for their streaming cam where I took my screen captures.

Missed likes to pose and she doesn’t like Lewis interrupting her photo sessions. The second image shows her hearing him coming!

Lewis does not look like he could ever get into mischief, right? LOL

    1. You are so very welcome, Linda. It was such a nice thing to see Connie and Clive with eggs after the sadness with Rita and Samson. Wishing them all the best!
