The Eagles Have landed !
A huge bonus of biking the wonderful Pioneer Bike Trail from route 776 south to Placida is that there is an active eagle nest close to the trail and just south of the bridge over the east branch of Coral Creek. There are two large babies in the nest in a spectacular dead pine tree. I got some good views of one parent feeding the chicks. Eagles almost always choose a site near good fishing waters and this one certainly fits the bill since the shallow waters of the creek are loaded with fish. So take your bike down the trail and enjoy nature at its best.
