The eagles that have resided at the Audubon Country Club for about 15 years have again produced offspring. In the attached photos, the two adult eagles are in one of their favorite perches overlooking a lake and the golf course. The fledgling is at the right of two adults; a second fledgling was in a nearby tree. The fledglings are nearly the same size as the adults; they can be differentiated principally by their dark heads compared with the white heads of the adults. Over the years the eagles have become quite comfortable with their proximity to development and typically are not spooked by the noise of lawnmowers, garbage trucks, screaming grandchildren in the pool nor golfers on the course. The eagles are a treasured part of our community. If previous patterns repeat, the adults will take the two fledglings to another area in May and leave them there. And the cycle goes on.
