Bald Eagle

Four of our readers wrote to tell us about their Bald Eagle sighting in the past week.


Tracey from Norland, Ontario, reported ..... While sitting at my kitchen table admiring the Gull River and the hundred ducks floating on the almost frozen river, we suddenly noticed the ducks becoming agitated. Lo and behold, a Bald Eagle was sizing up the sitting ducks for breakfast. The Eagle continued all day and the rest of the weekend sitting and swooping to catch a duck. He is larger than I could have imagined, but very majestic in nature. When he lands in a tree to look down on the ducks we are able to get a good look at him, but still not close enough for a picture. After stalking the ducks for days he has scared them away for now. If we are able to get a picture I will attach it at a later time. Whether you are passing through or living in Norland Ontario, keep an eye out for the Bald Eagle.

Garry Stephenson from Lakeside, North East of London Ontario, says ..... Saw a Bald Eagle sat in a tree on my property. It was being mobbed by crows. It's been feeding from one of my dead domestic geese that it killed. This is the second goose killing in two weeks. The trees overlook my spring fed pond which is currently frozen. My neighbour tells me she's seen it hunting here back in the summer.

David Holness from Burlington said ..... My wife and I were on Plains Road this afternoon at the Royal Botanical Gardens, when we saw a mature Bald Eagle passing by over the RBG park. It's our second sighting since they returned to Cootes Paradise, but much closer this time. Beautiful!

Another reader wrote to tell us ..... We spotted a Bald Eagle at the unnamed island beside the dam in Caledonia on February 14, 2015. We did get a picture, but only with an iPhone as we weren't there for birding and were caught without a camera.

First local sighting of a Bald Eagle
by: Julie Cross

While out walking my dogs, (Guildwood Blvd and Laurel Street, London, Ontario,) I was mesmerized by the sight of a Bald Eagle flying directly overhead, making a pass across one block of houses in a westerly direction. It was quite the sighting considering it was my first time seeing one up close let alone in my very own neighbourhood. I ran into a neighbour friend moments later who said she had seen one in her backyard days earlier!

London Ontario Two Bald Eagles
by: Anonymous

Well, outside on my balcony behind Cherry Hill Mall watching a Red Tail Hawk, two Bald Eagles flew by at about 1:30 pm going towards Springbank Park, that would be my guess. What excitement!

Seen near Fullerton
by: Janet

I saw a Bald Eagle land, then sit in a field on the east side of Perth Road 163 about 5 pm this afternoon, December 2, 2015. The Eagle was sighted as I was travelling southbound on Perth Road 163, about half way between Fullarton and the intersection with old #7. I read that Gary from Lakeside had seen a Bald Eagle on his property, and I'd note that Lakeside is not very far from this location where I saw the Eagle.
