About the nest:
During the autumn of 2014, a few virgin breeds began to visit this deserted nest, where it originally nestled a pair of bald eagles.
The nest is located 25 meters above ground on one of the six international certified golf courses in The Landings,
on Skidaway, near Savannah in Georgia ..
In the course of the year 2015 and 2016 a few breeds were bred by four youngsters, but 2017 did not return to XNUMX.
Instead of a owl, 2017 had a few orbits in the river.
The female lasted three eggs at the turn of March and April. 5. May 2017 hatched the first cub.
14. In May, the nest was attacked by an aggressive eagle and juvenile
the consequences of the injury died.
The other two eggs were not viable.
25. May 2017 eggs broke and ate a crow.

In 2018, a pair of eagles began extending the nest on February 6. In 2019, the dry tree that held the nests was removed due to the danger of falling. A new nesting site was built on the adjacent tree in the autumn of 2019, and the eagles quickly settled in the new location in 2020.
