Eagles in downtown Baton Rouge

There have been several Bald Eagle sightings in downtown Baton Rouge this winter and spring. They are coming in apparently to fish on the lakes at LSU and the Capitol. Have to wonder if there's a nest in the vicinity but no one has reported one to my knowledge.

I ate lunch down by the Capitol Lake this week and this Bald Eagle was perched in a cypress tree across the lake and stayed there for a good long time. (Not great quality due to limited optics, light, and distance, but I think you can tell it's an eagle :-) )
