Nest in nearby Miami Gardens produced two eaglets (Temporary Nest ID: DA981)

This post was updated on .
Although this is not a Broward County nest, it was first reported in the autumn of 2018 and produced two eaglets.

Nest ID: DA981 (ID Status Temporary) is in the Miami-Dade County Andover area which is just SW of NW 2nd Ave (Rte 7)  and NW 207 Street, I think it is in Miami Gardens. Access is via private property.

Florida Audubon EagleWatch has been monitoring it and two eaglets were fledged this spring. There is construction at the site and one report indicated that the developer has applied for a permit to intrude near the nest. I never heard back but will advise in the event there is an update available.

The coordinates on Google Earth/Google Maps are:
[  25.96331800, -80.21255000  ]

Here are the Florida Audubon EagleWatch reports for the recent breeding season.
