Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

This pair of Southern Bald Eagles has nested and raised two families this year alone.  The pair have their nest on an electric tower in the center of the lovely Nancy Lopez Legacy Golf Course here in The Villages, Florida.  This area is accessible via golf cart on the multi-modal path.

It appears the couple is repairing or remodeling their nest.  Perhaps they are trying to ready their nest for a new clutch of eggs?  Who knows?  This nest is close to several ponds and open fields so food is plentiful.  There also are larger trees and electric towers for the high perches eagles seem to prefer.  A good habitat for raising eaglets!  By the way, I took these pictures at about 6:00pm on Friday evening, May 3, 2019.   Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
