Bald Eagle

Haliaeetus leucocephalus

Description:

I was fortunate to witness this Bald Eagle being harassed repeatedly by a little male Black-necked Stilt (Himantopus mexicanus). The stilt had a nearby nest with the mate sitting on eggs. It would alarm call then take flight diving at the Eagle two or three times then return, and a few minutes later would repeat. This went on for about an hour then the eagle flew off

Habitat:

Wetlands in Florida

Congrats, it is amazing indeed.

“Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!”
