People across the country have enjoyed following the eagle on social media and live stream pages for many years now. It was just a few weeks ago that Harriet and her partner M-15 welcomed eaglets into the nest.
The official social media account noted M-15 has been defending the nest from predators and bringing the eaglets food. The post went on to say that onlookers will have to wait and see if Harriet returns to the nest.
As of 2/5/2023 Harriet 🦅 has still not returned to the nest . Hundreds of thousands of viewers wait and hope . M15 🦅 is doing all , protecting the nest , warding and chasing off all intruders to the nest tree or area . Bringing in food and both eaglets are safe . @SWFLEagleCAM pic.twitter.com/M9zr1H0Gdm— 𝒮𝒸𝑜𝓇𝓅𝑒𝓈𝓌𝓇𝒾𝓉𝑒𝓇 (@scorpeswriter) February 5, 2023
