One of our readers wrote to tell us .....On January 23 2013, the coldest day of the year -25 this morning. At 4:00 pm I was brushing snow off my truck and a Bald Eagle flew over head. This was at Wasaga Beach, Ontario.
Randy from Kirkfield told us ..... My wife and I were travelling along highway 48 on Sunday morning January 27, 2013 in Kirkfield, Ontario, when we spotted a Bald Eagle sitting in a tree.
Scott says ..... On February 1st at dusk I witnessed 2 Bald Eagles circling above the Maitland River just east of Goderich. They circled for 5 to 7 minutes and then flew upriver towards the Benmiller area. It was awesome to watch. Nice to see them in the wild.
Jeff from St Thomas wrote to say ..... We are at Springwater Conservation Area
in Orwell, Ontario, and sat and watched a Bald Eagle circling around in the sky. I was amazed at this sight as I have only seen them in photos.
One of our readers, says he saw Bald Eagles.... Not once, but twice in the last two days I saw a Bald Eagle flying along the south side of the 401 near a small river just west of Tilbury, Ontario. I'm positive it was one, as I live in Dorchester, Ontario, and there is a family of Bald Eagles living at the Boy Scout camp east of town. I'm across the street from the Thames River and they patrol the river. An absolutely amazing creature to watch.
On April 16, 2013 my wife and I were driving north on Highway #25 just south of Highway #89 when we saw a large object sitting in a tree on the side of the highway. As we approached there was no mistaking what it was ... a huge mature Bald Eagle. We were both amazed as neither my wife not I had ever seen a Bald Eagle in Southern Ontario, and to be honest, I did not think that there were any in this local. I am an novice photographer and on this occasion the battery in my camera was dead. What a bummer!Thank you all for telling us about your sightings of these magnificent birds.
It certainly is wonderful to know that their numbers have recovered, and they are living and breeding in our area!
