2016 Bald Eagle Nest

2016 Bald Eagle Nest Photo Album

 

Welcome to the TGO Nature Center’s 2016 Bald Eagle Nest Photo Album. The Bald Eagles have again used the nest that can be seen off of the golf cart nature trail on St. John’s Water Management property.  Even though they have been seen at the nest in late 2015, the activity has increased in 2016 and I have received reports that their egg(s) have hatched.  Hopefully, we can chronicle the nest activity and the progress of the eaglet(s). Click on any photo below to get a closer look.

Pat Mahon took the three photos below on February 4, 2016 and sent them with the following message:  “The eagles are back on the nest working hard to feed the eaglet. I have attached a few photos.”

Below are photos Pat Mahon took on February 8, 2016. If you click on the photos to get a closer look, you will notice in the first two photos, there is a whitish looking stick pointing upward about center of the nest.  Then, in the next two photos,  an object appears – looks like an eaglet’s head to me – what do you think?

Pat Mahon took the photos below on February 15, 2016.  In the third and fifth photos, there appears to be the head of an eaglet that is not in the other photos.  Click on each photo to zoom in to decide for yourself if there is an eaglet present.

Here is Pat Mahon’s eaglet update and photos below taken on February 21, 2016.  Pat wrote “The eaglet is up and about. I did these in Black and White because it was a dull day without much color.  Cheers”

Below are photos Pat Mahon took on February 28, 2016.  Looks like the eaglet is stretching its wings under the watchful eyes of one of its parents in the last two photos. Click on the photo to enlarge.
