Bald Eagle north of St Thomas
by A St Thomas resident
(St Thomas, Ontario, Canada)
While canoeing on Kettle Creek 30 minutes north of highway 52 (Ron McNeil Line), I saw a Bald Eagle leave a tree and soar around for about 5 minutes and then disappear into the woods.
Did not see it's nest.Barb, your Webmistress here - thanks for the info, I too have seen them around St Thomas. Once out near the Ford Plant off Major Line, and again off Ron McNeil line up Dalewood Drive area.
They do nest around here - I heard they nest near Iona, and I know they nest near the Fanshawe Dam in London.
UPDATE: Yesterday, April 8th 2013, my daughter and I spotted a mature Bald Eagle flying across the creek at Waterworks Park, St Thomas. He was huge and we were able to observe him in the tree for several minutes.
