A Southern Bald Eagle


This Southern Bald Eagle is likely one I have photographed in this same spot a few times before.  I spotted the eagle on the top of a high tension electric line tower at the Santiago Recreation Center golf course in The Villages, FL.

The eagle was watching the goings-on at the golf course lake and the fairways of that same course, which the tower overlooks.  Bald Eagles love eating fish as well as Common Coots, ducklings and sometimes rodents such as mice rats and squirrels.  These Southern Bald Eagles are native eagles here in Florida and are slightly smaller than the typical Bald Eagle.

By the way, I tried to find those pelicans I had seen a few days ago but could not do so.  I did see about a hundred or more Double-crested Cormorants and about twenty Wood Storks.  Pictures will appear here in posts next week.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!
