Bald Eagle on Severn River
by Gary Kenez
(Barrie, Ontario, Canada)
On Wednesday, September 22, 2010, while driving my motor boat mid-afternoon along Lost Channel on the Severn River, I spotted a Bald Eagle take flight from a tree.
I turned and followed it to continue viewing this magnificent bird which, in the 40 years I've been in the area, I have never before seen. It made my day, probably my week. I viewed it until it soared out of sight.
Lost Channel is east of Big Chute, the second last stopping point before reaching Port Severn lock on Southern Georgian Bay. I was astounded when my eyes registered the large white tail and head feathers to make the positive identification.How wonderful - thank you Gary, for writing to tell us about this Bald Eagle sighting!
