Bald Eagle in flight

One of our readers from Marmora, Ontario, sent us this report - I am quite sure I saw a Bald Eagle on June 5th, 2010, on Crowe River, just south of Marmora, near Healy Falls. It was flying high in the sky, large, with a distinctive white head.


I see there is a sighting near Healy Falls, which is about 5 km from from my cottage location.

Thanks for telling us about your sighting of this majestic bird, the Bald Eagle - I wonder if there are a pair nesting in that area?

Bald Eagles Crowe Lake/River
by: Anonymous

There are at least four Bald Eagles in the Crowe Lake\River vicinity this year. On January 2, 2018 my daughter and I watched through the living room window, an adult Eagle swoop down within inches of a marten that was eating a minnow on the ice. It then landed on ice and as I was rushing around looking for the camera, my daughter yells "there are three of them!" Sure enough the adult was there and two younger ones that look full grown, but the head and tail feathers haven't turned white yet, all standing on the ice. (Apparently it can take 4 - 5yrs for the feathers to turn.) Since then I have seen the two adults soaring together and an occasional glimpse of the young ones by themselves.

Bald Eagle over Crowe Lake
by: Anonymous

On August 20, 2017 my husband and I were boating on Crowe Lake near the big island close to Blairton Bay. We saw a Bald Eagle soar above us carrying some prey. It was a spectacular sight! I really wish I would have brought my camera on the boat with me!!

Bald Eagle sighting on Hwy 7,west of Marmora
by: Ray Middleton, Madoc

Tuesday, February 3 2015. On my way home to Madoc from visiting mom in Havelock, I pulled over and watched a beautiful Bald Eagle soaring over Hwy.7 perhaps only 50 feet up. It went right over my head and I watched it for several minutes. Just west of Marmora by that 'western town' leather place. I'm from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and have seen hundreds of them over the years, so I am 100% positive of its I.D. It was low enough and close enough to plainly see the distinctive white head and tail. Also heard it screech once. Will grab my camera and go back and cruise the area for the next few days to see if I can get some pictures! It made my day!!!
