Bald Eagle in Farm Field
(Cambridge, Ontario, Canada)
My wife and I were returning to Cambridge, Ontario, from Paris at approximately 12:15 pm on Tuesday, March 11, 2014, travelling north out of Paris on highway 24A.
As we came out of the second bend of a s-curve we noticed a large bird standing in the frozen runoff in a farm field.
At first we thought Vulture or Red Tail, but as I started to slow down and pull over it became obvious it was a Bald Eagle.
This beautiful, majestic bird was about about 50 yards in on right side.
Unfortunately, before my wife could get a picture with cell phone, it took flight and flew back and landed about 300 - 400 feet back in field.
I was born, grew up and lived in Paris for 45 of my 60 years and had never before seen a Bald Eagle around Paris.
