Yesterday, I went to the Punta Gorda History Park to see what our local urban eagles were up to. The male must have been out hunting and the female was just sitting on a perch above the nest. I noticed some motion on the tree and took a look. A couple of squirrels had decided that the tree would be a great place to play.
Take a look at this picture. The eagles nest is just about in the center, the eagle is at top left looking down at the squirrel on the other side of the tree. The second squirrel was directly below.
I’m not sure these guys knew how much trouble they could be in if mama had been a bit hungry.
