North Fort Myers eagles Ozzie and Harriet's larger eaglet, "E3," has died in the nest off Bayshore Road of unknown causes.
The baby had apparently taken ill over the last few days and then died in the nest Sunday morning, according to the eagle cam website, dickpritchettrealestate.com/eagle-feed.html .
The site states:
"It is with heavy hearts, we bring you an update on E3- this season's elder eaglet
"After a few days of a noticeable behavior change, E3's health deteriorated and passed away in the nest early this morning.
"While we may never know what caused the death of E3, we hope the documented videos and reports will help educate biologists and researchers & possibly save future eagles/eaglets.
"We all mourn together with the reminder that we are merely observers; given the rare and unique opportunity to witness these eagles in the wild."
