Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

Southern Bald Eagles here in The Villages tend to perch on the high tension electric towers and on very large electric poles as well as occasionally in the crowns of taller Live Oak Trees.  I spotted these Southern Bald Eagles here at the Nancy Lopez Legacy Golf Course and at an area just East of Morse Blvd. on San Pedro.  I took these pictures just a few days ago.

The eagles on the San Pedro vicinity tower are a parent and older eaglet.  The eaglet was hatched a few months ago.  I have photographed both the parent and eaglet a few times now.  That eaglet is almost ready to fly off!  The eagles at Nancy Lopez Legacy Golf Course have already finished with this year’s family and are likely resting from that effort.  All of these eagles are year-around residents here.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Enjoy!

  1. Great pics! Such beautiful birds! Thank you!

    • Hi Cathy, Many thanks! I have enjoyed seeing the eagles raise eaglets. What is nice is that eagles often return to the same places or nearby to build or refurbish nests year after year so it is sometimes easier to spot nesting eagles. Have a super weekend!

  2. Isn’t it great to see them in good numbers! It was not that long ago when they were nearly extinct.
