The eagles are back – Skywatch Friday

I think most of the eagles are back in Florida for the winter and the famous couple down at Fort Myers already have eggs. You can see the web came here. I finally saw one of the eagles not too far from my house on the horse farm. He was sitting in a tree across the street from the nest. I didn’t see anyone on the nest but the mate could have been sleeping on it and I just couldn’t see her from the street.

I spotted the peacocks wandering around the neighborhood where the eagle’s nest is located. There are now a ton of them all over the place. They were pretty quiet when I stopped by but I bet they can wake up the whole neighborhood when they start screaming.

They were all over the neighborhood.

I stopped to take a picture of the eagle in the tree and a horse came over to check me out.

At a nearby pond, I found a kildeer couple.

One of them was wandering down the sidewalk in front of the houses. His friend was across the street in front of the pond.

I was excited to see the eagle back at the horse farm. I’m hoping for another successful eagle family again this year.

  1. How exciting to have an eagle in your neighborhood. The peacock close-up is interesting, it seems to have an eyebrow of feathers. We had some in our neighborhood once that came down and hung out for a while at our house, they are amazing. I think everywhere I have lived there have been Kildeer, cute photos.

  2. How wonderful to have Eagles nesting so close to your home. I hope that means we willing be seeing the progress of the chicks when they arrive. Love the Peacock.

  3. We saw a whole bunch of eagles — tons — in Alaska and I wondered then if I’d still be excited to follow Ozzie and Harriet. I still think it is great to watch them (in person as well as on the camera) but I probably won’t try so hard for the perfect picture. Because (1) I’m never gonna get it and (2) I have a whole lot of Alaska eagle pictures I haven’t used yet. I think I’ll post something about this on my blog after the Holidays. I’m percolating the idea..
