Spring eagles

Eagle calling

I’ve lived here six years and have yet to be indifferent to the sight of an eagle. They’ve been more visible lately. And this one also had something to say. It was doing a lot of calling.

As the eagle in the shot above took off from its perch this one landed in a nearby tree.

  1. Lucky you. I have only seen about two wild eagles in my life time. Perhaps you are seeing more because of the government’s recovery program that brought them back from the brink of extinction.

    1. Andy, the U.S. Endangered Species Act has helped a good many species. But one of the reasons eagles are abundant in our region is that there is adequate habitat to support them, in particular rivers that support fish and areas where they can nest without disturbance. In many more urbanized areas there simply aren’t places where they can live much less thrive.

  2. They are such magnificent animals that one would have to be brain dead not to be impressed! Seeing them in the wild is a special treat!! Check my blog this coming Wednesday for a surprise.

  3. Nice! I see an eagle from time to time here in Naples in the winter, maybe as often as a dozen times in a year. Last Friday I was at a friend’s home for dinner and there was a big eagle on the golf course, right beyond the lanai. I didn’t have a camera with me and was so disappointed.
