Bald Eagle sighting in West Lincoln

by Margie Rietveld
(Fonthill, Ontario, Ontario)

We were driving along Regional Road 65 or Silver Road. We thought it was a very large Hawk until we got close and realized it was a Bald Eagle. I pulled over and backed the car up.

To see a sighting like that is unusual, but sure enough that's what it was. A bald eagle in West Lincoln.

How exciting! It's got to be good luck or something!

Yes, Margie, I think it must be good luck to see a Bald Eagle - I have been lucky enough to see several in the wild, but I feel the same each time I see one - I am filled with delight at the sight!

Here is a picture of a Bald Eagle, whichi, I hope, looks like the one you saw.

Eagle in West Lincoln?
by: Bonnie Harper

I am almost positive I saw a 3 - 4 year old Eagle in the Caistorville area of West Lincoln ywo days ago. I had just plugged my phone into my car charger due to low battery a few minutes before and was disappointed that I couldn't get a picture of it! It was about 30-40 feet away in the field next to me and I watched it for at least a solid minute before it took flight and flew right over me!

Bald Eagle in Caistorville
by: Anonymous

I was taking a break from gardening in my backyard, looking at the Chippewa Creek and I saw a giant bird which I thought it was just another great blue heron but noticed white. I watched it come into view and it was soaring low, down in the creek bank following the creek up stream. That's when I was amazed to realize what I saw was a Bald Eagle. It was about 100' from me and so crystal clear. So I told my husband as he was further down the bank - look it's a bald eagle! He turned around and saw a full view close up. Thank goodness he was there to have shared that view. Most amazing sight to have seen. I could see his intense stare and details as he was that close!

What a sight!
