The Bald Eagle Family

Southern Bald Eagles are resident here in The Villages, FL.  This family were spotted at the Nancy Lopez Legacy Golf Course on the electric towers near the Mulberry Dog Park.  The parent eagles and one of the two eaglets of this family were perched on three different towers when I recently was out bird watching.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo.  Wishing everyone a happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Enjoy!

Bald Eagle and Eaglet on the Nest!

A Southern Bald Eagle and its eaglet baby were spotted in their nest high on an electric high tension line tower on the Nancy Lopez Legacy Golf Course here in The Villages, Florida.  This nest is on the multi-modal path that runs up the middle of the courses.

It is the first time I have spotted an eaglet with the parent eagle.  It was a very tender scene as the eaglet seems pretty young.  The other parent eagle was likely out hunting for food such as fish, coots, or small rodents like rats or squirrels.  There seems to be a lot of opportunities for finding food here in our area with the many lakes, ponds, and open spaces.

I was so happy to have seen the eagles yesterday when these pictures were taken!  Please click on the thumbnail images to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
