The 2016-2017 season is the fifth season Dick Pritchett Real Estate has provided the live look into this Southwest Florida nest.
This season we will again catch all the action using three cameras that film the birds 24/7 and stream live video directly to this site.
Camera #1 is positioned six feet above the nesting tree and is equipped with night vision or infrared light, which emits no actual light. The birds do not see or hear anything coming from the camera.
