Bald Eagle Family Live Camera

Ron and Rita are a pair of bald eagles, who started the year with newborn babies.

You can tune in to watch a family of bald eagles in South Florida as they spend their day through Miami-Dade County live nest camera.

“Rita laid her first egg on Thanksgiving Day,” said Ron Magill, wildlife expert and communications director for Zoo Miami. The birds are named after him and his wife, Rita Magill.

She laid three eggs in total, which is unheard of, according to Magill. The first egg hatched on New Years Day.

The Ron Magill Conservation Endowment and the Wildlife Rescue of Dade County worked together to launch the live camera and help the eagle family.

“My job is to connect people with nature. There is an old saying that at the end of the day we protect what we love. We like what we understand and we understand what we are taught, ”said Magill. “Our hope is that when people watch this camp, they learn to love these birds. They learn to truly respect and understand nature’s struggles and that we can all coexist. “

The 25th Annual Miami Jewish Film Festival

Miami Jewish Film Festival is back with more movies than ever before at 148 movies. Some of the events will take place in person and off – most of the screenings will be online.

“We put the spotlight on Made in Florida films, made in Florida stories,” said festival executive director Igor Shteyrenberg.

One of these films is called ‘iMordecai‘and it was filmed here in Miami. It is a story of family, aging and reconciliation.

Mordecai Samel, a retiree, desperately clings to his old ways. Even using an old flip phone.

He doesn’t want to grow old – but eventually he opens up to new experiences. And it all starts when he gets his first iPhone.

“It’s based on my dad, Mordecai Samuel, who I had to moderate for the film because my dad is quite a character,” said Marvin Samel, the director of the film which debuts this week at the Miami Jewish Film Festival. . .

“This is my love letter to the city of Miami and Miami Dade County. Every shot in this film is personal to my parents and I couldn’t imagine filming anywhere else. It was an incredible experience.
