~They deserve a post all their own~

However, my photos of them might not!

Sunday morning, when we were getting ready to leave Rainbow Springs State Park and drive over to Silver River State Park, this pair of Bald Eagles flew into a tree right in the campground.

They make their home at Rainbow Springs State Park:

– hunting along the river,

– building their nest in a favorite tree within the parks boundary,

– and raising their  young

I was told, by a campground host, that this is their fourth year to build a nest in the park.

The pine tree they were sitting in was huge and my camera lens – not so huge.

However, it was exciting seeing them!

    1. It will be a very special day when you do spot your first Bald Eagle! You never know when one might show up. We were driving down a very busy major highway in Lady Lake, Florida and one flew right over the highway.

  1. We have traveled all over and have not seen a bald eagle yet. If I ever do, I will probably be too excited to get a picture…..nice pictures you took Sheila.

    1. You will be excited! I wish I could remember when I saw my first one. I am thinking it must have been in the Tetons! I saw 27 in a tree in Loveland many years ago, they must have been migrating thru. It will be a special day spotting your first one! I hope it is soon!
