Bald Eagle sighting Huron County March 5, 2010

One of our readers from Goderich sent us this report - On the way home from work today on Donnybrook Line heading towards Auburn, I was just checking out the countryside as usual on this especially beautiful Friday afternoon, when I spotted this massive bird gliding through the sky.
I always pay special attention to large birds of prey and thought it was a Hawk from afar. I can usually spot Turkey Vultures
and Crows and don't really care much for them, but since I thought it was a Hawk, I watched it closer.
When it was close enough to see the colors I couldn't believe my eyes! It was a Bald Eagle
! I said to my colleague, "Look at that bird, it's an Eagle!" I have never seen one before in my entire life! We watched it as it continued gliding gracefully, likely looking for a nice meal on it's way west toward the river.
I hope they continue to prosper. Thank you Shawn, I too hope that these magnificent birds continue to prosper in this area
