Bald Eagle on Severn River

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!

Sitting in a friends cottage near Port Severn today I noticed a large bird circling above the property. At first I thought it was a hawk until I notice the white head and tail feathers. Unfortunetly it was gone before I reached my camera. What a beautiful creature!
