CRITTER: Bald Eagle
A pair of eagles whose nest is near our Florida home provide endless photo opportunities.
They are a devoted couple...
...cooperating at nest-building or disagreeing about where to place this stick?
Over eight breeding seasons we have watched their chicks grow up from little fuzzy white balls...
...to hulking flight-ready eaglets, actually bigger than their parents.

We worked with the Mayor, who declared the site a Bald Eagle Sanctuary. The traffic department put up cones to deter parking in front of their nest. A local merchant donated the fence, shown here as it was being erected in 2009:
Our granddaughter, then only 4 years old, watches the nest.
Still at it just after her 10th birthday!
