Bald Eagle in Midland
(Midland, Ontario, Canada)
In my 60 years, I have only ever seen Bald Eagles maybe twice (in the US, never in Canada) but yesterday, January 18th 2011, in the late afternoon there was a flutter of wings in the bush beside our home and our first reaction was that it was a Wild Turkey roosting for the night.
Not so. The unmistakable white head clearly identified it as a Bald Eagle. By the time I located the binoculars, it had flown, but what a thrill! In Ontario! In Midland!
Anyone else seen these magnificent birds in central Ontario? Thank you so much, Wayne, for this report of your Bald Eagle sighting - what a thrill to see this birds so closely! You should keep your camera handy, and send us a picture if you see him again! Our readers would love to see pictures!
