We live at the north end of Scugog Island in Port Perry, Ontario - great birding spot, just south west of the Crown lands.


My wife was home with our 6 month old son today and a Bald Eagle landed in the trees with a carp (a big carp!).

We have had Ospreys around here, but this was really neat to see.

Soon after landing and tearing the carp to bits, the eagle was mobbed by crows and didn't get to stay around too long.

Hopefully we will see it again.

I have seen a Bald Eagle on top on a 30 foot dying tree beside the Scugog River just north of View Lake about a mile. Was pretty good and got some good pics!

I live at the north end of Scugog just up the river and saw a Bald Eagle flying over the water today. Pretty awesome.

Just saw a magnificent Bald Eagle soaring over Pine Point Road, half way between Island Road and the lake.

Young Bald Eagle

I am 90% sure I just saw a young Bald stand on the ice by the open water, then it was flying with an adult one, I think. I have seen the adults once before.

Bald Eagle on Lake Scugog
by: Deirdre Barker

We have a cottage on Scugog Point and have seen a Bald Eagle three times this summer. Very exciting to see this magnificent bird flying overhead and then picking up a fish out on the lake and carrying it off to the swamp at the end of the point.

I just googled to see if this bird was possible to be in this area. I saw it in the day over the lake in Starr Bay and it was just sitting on our TV antenna for hours. The pic on my iPad is not too good. But I've heard others mention it. Pretty cool.
