Southern Bald Eagles

A pair of Southern Bald Eagles is nesting on an electric tower in The Villages, Florida near Morse Blvd. off of San Marino.   I have photographed this pair a few times now.  I think this is the same pair that nested in the same tower last year!  The tower is near a pond, and a huge open field so there is plenty of food and water nearby for the eagles.

I have heavily cropped the pictures so you can see the eagles better.  I was about a block away from the tower and used my 300mm lens for the shots.

I so enjoy following the growth of the family of eagles and  can’t wait to see the young when they hatch and are large enough to be seen peeking out of the nest!  By the way, while I was taking the pictures, the eagle on the nest signaled for a relief change and the other partner swooped down to take its place.  Such loving cooperation!   Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
