Debbie Williams from WKRG TV in Mobile reported that for the first time in 70 years a pair of American Bald Eagles are nesting on the Alabama Gulf Coast. We did find the nest and a bald eagle standing guard on the limb above it. Soon after the second eagle flew in and landed in the nest. ¬†I still have goose bumps and it’s been several hours since we saw them.

Another Bald Eagle was spotted near the Weeks Bay National Estuary Research Center and is just a short drive from the B&B. See How It Landed Its Catch On The Following Video.

Community members meet once a month to share food, fun, facts, and camaraderie — keeping everyone abreast of the news and needs of the various residents and providing yet another link in the bonds of friendship and fellowship that are truly unique to Magnolia Springs.

Despite the delightful and unassuming “small town” ambiance of Magnolia Springs, the additional advantages of metropolitan living are only minutes away: both Mobile, Alabama, and Pensacola, Florida, lie less than an hour’s drive from the quiet, tree-lined byways of the Springs. Opera, symphonies, theater, and cultural activities are abundant, both in Mobile and Pensacola and in Baldwin County — opportunities for cultural enrichment and diverting entertainment are everywhere.

Cheese Samples: 

  • Elberta¬†– house recipe, ¬†semi-soft slightly tart
