Luckily, Harriet & M returned to the area and got to work in September and the nest was in great shape for the laying of their two eggs in November.(Egg #1 - November 22, PM/ Egg# 2 - November 25th, PM).2016 - 2017 Season marked the second season Harriet and her new mate M15 mated as a pair.The season started with much anticipation if the eagles would return as the nest had been completely lost after the end of the last season.The first egg (E5) was laid November 19 and hatched (37 days) Dec. The 2nd egg (E6) was laid November 22 and hatched (35 days) Dec. (CROW) for evaluation after showing signs of disorientation and injury.After 97 days of care to recover from a broken left clavicle and a broken left coracoid bone, Ozzie was released back into the wild near the nest.
The eagles do not see any light and remain undisturbed.E7 returned the next day, E8 did not & feared dead.On May 13th, volunteers found E8 alive in a nearby neighborhood with a broken leg.After Ozzie’s passing, Harriet spent a few weeks courting possible new mates but eventually bonded (or mated) with M15, laying two eggs.(1st egg: December 19 at pm; 2nd egg: December 22 at pm).Making a triumphant return to the nest after its accidental fledge, E9 learned all the fundamentals of survival from Harriet & M and was last seen in the nest area on May 2.
