Bald Eagles are so majestic! I have spotted five Southern Bald Eagles in the last week here in Northern Florida. I spotted one Bald Eagle in its nest on the top of an electric tower near Paynes Prairie State Preserve on Highway 441 on February 6, 2015; a pair of Bald Eagles at the Guana River Wildlife Management Area off of the coastal highway A-1A, near St. Augustine, Florida, and another pair of Bald Eagles at Tuscawilla Park in Ocala, Florida on February 11, 2015.
It is thrilling to see these wonderful birds of prey! The Southern Bald Eagles are numerous here in Florida. The Bald Eagles eat fish, rodents, small birds, and sometimes small animals. They love to eat Coots, which are a rail bird that looks like a duck. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy! Have a happy Valentine’s Day tomorrow!
