We need more volunteers for this program. If you are interested in volunteering for the Eagle Watch Program, please join. Adult eagles start prepping their enormous nests for the breeding season beginning in late-September. Eagles return to the same nest each year, although they often build more than one nest. Between October and January, the eagles lay eggs and begin the incubation process. The young eaglets tend to stick around the nests for several weeks after fledging, which provides opportunities to view the birds. The Eagle Watch Program enables the public to get involved and learn about the nesting habits of the bald eagle while assisting the City and State of Florida in collecting valuable data. The Program reduces staff time spent for monitoring and documenting eagle behavior, although City staff will continue to monitor and inspect nesting sites throughout the duration of the nesting season About 40 volunteers attended the initial meeting and received a brief training lesson on the nesting behaviors bald eagles exhibit during the nesting season. Nests may reach ten feet across and weigh a half-ton. The largest bald eagle nest was recorded in Key Largo, weighing two tons, and measuring 20 feet in height and ten feet in width. At approximately 11 weeks of age, the eaglets are ready to take flight.
Those big down pours are part of Florida life. We can control different parts of water. In your situation with a wonderful outdoor patio. I see the key three solutions as what is needed to make it better. One is to make sure the rock areas drain through the black sheets. Two is to add a down spout to the gutter and that is less than ten dollars, to move that water over and aim it away from the patio. I can do this easy and it will look nice. Lastly, make sure the new patio has a slight slope away from the house. I can do this too! One, two, three it will get better! Big pine kitty likes dry paws!
