Pair Near Their Nest, Bald Eagle

Pair Near Their Nest, Bald Eagle

This pair have a large nest built over years. It’s high up and away from prying eyes. Eagles, even more than most birds, do not like to nest near disturbances.

Around the base of these incredibly tall pines is swamp lands. Keeps most people away.

If that doesn’t work an Alligator of ‘epic’ proportions lives here. We went past the nesting pines, into the swamp before taking these. The ‘big guy’ had left a reminder he was around. A cached deer carcass under a log. They like to save prey for later. (I haven’t read anything Ellen has published about the Eagles, bet she left out the carcass though LOL).

Now that we know the nesting is about to start we won’t be going far down the paths anymore. With luck we will get to watch from a distance.
