Southern Bald Eagles are pairing up and sizing up the various electric high tension line tower here in The Villages, FL these days. This pair were on the tower in the center of the Nancy Lopez Legacy Golf Course along the multi-modal path. I took these pictures at various times last couple of weeks and once earlier in the Spring (blue sky).
Whenever I see a Bald Eagle, I always think of how grateful I am to all of our wonderful service Veterans! Thank you for your service if you are a Veteran! Wishing everyone a very happy Veteran’s Day!

Is this a Red-tailed Hawk or is the bird pictured here Red-shouldered Hawk? I will say it has yellow eyes so maybe it is a younger adult or older juvenile. It appeared to be pretty large in size. I took the photographs on Saturday June 20, 2019 in The Villages, Florida on CR 466, East of Buena Vista a bit.
I am mystified as to which hawk this is. I am leaning toward Red-shouldered as that is the species I see most of here in my community, but it can go either way. I did not see the bird from the front but only that side view as photographed here. I cropped the bottom picture a bit for better view. Please weigh-in if you have a good idea. Many thanks!
