Location of sighting

Driving east on Dundas Street at 3:15 pm on Thursday, Oct 1st 2015 I saw a large bird out my left window as I crossed the bridge over Lyons Valley Park in Oakville.

It was soaring over the valley at the same level as the bridge.

At first I thought it was a large Turkey Vulture but it seemed almost 50% larger and there was a prominent white tail.

It then banked towards me & I saw it's beautiful white head. It was majestic.

I was shocked and yet it seemed right at home in the midst of suburbia.

I wondered if it was just traveling through? Has anyone else seen them in this area?

Awesome!!!! Bald Eagles have been seen more and more in this area. A breeding pair have taken residence at the Burlington R.B.G (Royal Botanical Gardens). I see them soaring above the 403 between Waterdown Road and highway 6.
