While it’s not the clearest picture I’ve ever taken, it sure was an exciting sight to see!  Right into the New Year, my friend and I traveled down to Pembroke Pines to see the one and only nesting pair of Bald Eagles in South East Florida.  It’s in a residential area, across the street from a school, not really where you would expect to see a pair of Eagles.  But year after year, this pair returns to this nest to lay their eggs and raise their young.  Finding it was a bit tough, funny as it may sound.  You can park along the street and see the nest across the street.  It took a little scouting and referring to a web site set up for this pair to find them, but once we saw the nest we though “How did we not see this?” (For the record, South Fl. Eagle Watch has made it incredible easy to locate the nest, giving you very specific instructions on where to stand for the best view.)  Momma Eagle was sitting in the nest, Daddy Eagle was nowhere to be seen.  We watched her as she preened herself and arranged her nest while watching over her egg.  Since an egg has been laid, there will always be at least one Eagle present until the Eaglets are ready to fledge, so if you’re in the South Florida area now is the perfect time to go have a looksy!  Maybe you’ll come up with your own pic of the week.
