Photo of the Week

A pair of bald eagles, photographed in March at their nest in a forest just east of the Everglades near Pines Boulevard. The nest, which was first discovered by a middle school last year, is said to be the first evidence of bald eagles mating in Broward County since at least 1972.

The site of the eagles' nest is zoned for residential development, but Pembroke Pines Mayor Frank Ortis is in talks with bird watchers and state wildlife protection officials about creating a sanctuary for the birds, whose two offspring have recently left the nest.

More on the eagles here, on the website of local bird-watching enthusiast Ken Schneider, who also shot a video of one of the baby eagles being harassed by a mocking bird. That video after the jump.
