Bald Eagles Repairing Their Nest in The Villages, FL

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!

Bald Eagles on Towers and Poles

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!
