Bald Eagle near Thamesford
(Thamesford, Ontario, Canada)
March 21, 2011 approximately 2:30pm I noticed a huge bird flying just south of Thamesford near the Thames river.
From a distance, I thought it was a Turkey Vulture, but as I drove closer, I noticed the white head and tail.
I've lived in the area all my life and had never seen a Bald Eagle here before.
Truly majestic and a good sign of Canada's ecological efforts.Thanks for letting us know about your Bald Eagle sighting.
I have seen them near the Thames River on Wonderland Road (at the Guy Lombardo bridge), flying high over Cherry Hill Mall on Oxford St, and I hear that they are nesting near Fanshawe Conservation Area.
