Bald Eagle

We have been seeing several Bald Eagles over our lake since the ice broke up. Today, a Bald Eagle, immature, flew low over the water, sending the many ducks there into the air. Even though Bald Eagles mainly eat fish, we have seen them take ducks and coots. This time, the ducks were lucky.

Migrating and newly arrived birds on our list at home today:

1 Pied-billed Grebe
1 Northern Harrier, male
7 Ring-necked Ducks
1 Bufflehead
20 Common Mergansers
7 Green-winged Teal
8 Black Ducks
8 Mallards
2 Hooded Mergansers
3 Song Sparrows
3 Northern Flickers
1 Killdeer
1 Purple Finch

Beautiful shot of the young eagle. It's sad that they will be leaving us soon here in central Florida. Please send them back our way in the fall.
