Peace River Wildlife Center

Did a little bicycle tour of downtown Punta Gorda and the river front then out to the wildlife center.

Burrowing Owls, cute but mean

Kestrel Hawk

On the way back into town we took a side trip to one of the nature centers to see the nesting owls.

Eagles of N Ft Myers

Did a little bike ride today to go see the nesting eagles.  About 5 miles from the park right along side a busy 6 lane road there is a nesting pair of eagles with two eggs, one has already hatched and the second one should follow very soon.  Cathy has been watching the nest on a web cam so we figured we better go see them.
Here's Mom smiling for the camera

Dad on a branch just above the nest keeping an eye out for trouble

Giving us the evil eye

And then we saw this little guy sitting on a wire near the park.
