Bald eagles nesting in
crowded Pinellas County
Some areas have not seen eagles in decades

TIERRA VERDE – The American
bald eagle, once close to extinction,
is making a remarkable comeback in one
of the Bay Area’s most densely populated
It is nesting season
for the beloved birds, and those who
watch them in Pinellas County say they
are finding space where they can in
the crowded urban landscape.
For the first time since
anyone can remember, there’s an eagle
nest on Tierra Verde, just across a
small pond along the busy Pinellas Bayway.
Locals who stop by, such as Jimmy Malandro,
marvel at how the eagle pair are putting
up with heavy foot, bike and vehicle
traffic just yards away.
“We have, as you well
see, cars driving by at 50 miles an
hour. And still having the birds nest
here is a real treat,” he said.
Larry Free of Tierra
Verde bikes by the nest every morning.
“We feel really fortunate
to be able to enjoy something like this
out here, five minutes away from the
house,” he said.
The Tierra Verde nest
is one of 25 active nests in Pinellas
this year, five of which are new. That’s
very encouraging to Audubon Eagle Watch
volunteers like Barbara Walker of Palm
“There’s a new nest
on Honeymoon Island, and there hasn’t
been a nest on Honeymoon Island in 40
years, so we have a couple of new tourist
attractions to add to our county and
be really proud of,” Walker said.
Walker is monitoring
a nest in East Lake that’s high atop
a transmission tower in the Progress
“Eagles need a lot of
space, so they’re taking space where
they can find it,” she says. Increasingly,
that’s on man-made structures such as
cell phone towers and power poles, which
can be risky for eagle pairs and their
“The power lines are
worrisome, because we fear that one
of the eagles, particularly a young
eagle, could run into a power line and
be injured or killed,” Walker explained.
Walker says people are
fascinated by eagles, possibly because
we came so close to losing them, but
also because they’re part of our national
“They’re our national
bird...they really stand for our strength
and our freedom and people love that,”
