Question: does it depend on the area of the nest as to how high it will be built (side walls)?
I notice NFL Eagles nest the walls seem so much higher. But maybe it is the angle of cameras. Thoughts?

Opal...it may appear that there is a definite difference in the sides due to camera angles, but from what I have observed, most of the nests are constructed about the same as far as the rail height, wherever they are.

@ Opal @ PaminIndiana
I have also noticed that Romeo and Juliet are further in their nest work. - But Harriet and M15 should have good time for the work - if, as told here, Harriet will be fertile first in mid November, shouldn't they? wave R&J did not need to fight for their courtship but were ready for cooperation as soon as they met each other again in September. Harriet's situation was unclear for weeks this autumn, before she could really begin building for her future in praxis finally with M15, wasn't it?

Open question to you SWFL eagle experts: what are some simple ways to distinguish Harriet from M15? Thank you. This is my 3rd year watching, first post. I enjoy reading your updates.

Gullzena... the main difference is their size. The female eagle is larger than the male which, of course, you can only determine if the eagles are close to one another. When they are apart and the cam is able to get a close up, I have found that M15 has a noticeable crack under his left nare (nostril), Harriet does not. Basically I determine who is who by size, but sometimes it is truly a guessing game! I'm sure others can help us with the way they ID them. Hope that helps.
