Yesterday morning at 10:00 am I was walking my dogs down by Derek's Point in Port Colborne.

As we walked alongside the weir, enjoying the very loud voices of 100 or more Canada geese, terns and ducks, we were surprised to see a very large bird soar straight up the middle of the bridge.

This massive wing span caught my eye and silenced all the birds enjoying the water.

I stood still and watched this bird get closer and closer to the pedestrian bridge located by the old Robin Hood mill.

As the bird came closer I spotted it's white head and matching tail feathers as it passed us and landed in a large tree on the west side of the weir right beside the pedestrian bridge.

I watched as it sat for almost 40 minutes enjoying the sun!

It was a spectacular day!

Thank you for submitting the report of your Bald Eagle sighting - I hope you don't mind that I added a picture!

I will also post this on our facebook page so that our facebook followers can also enjoy this.

Fairly certain I spotted a Bald Eagle circling over the canal today (by the Wellness centre in Welland), unfortunately no camera with me.

We heard some bird noises and saw three Bald Eagles in our tree. They let us get close. I have never seen them around before.

Port Colborne's Eagle
by: MB

I've seen him (I'm guessing him because of his size) about 6 times flying the length of the weir in the last month. On Wednesday afternoon around 4:00 pm he was out on the ice in Reebs Bay. He's a magnificent and his wing span is massive.

I live close to the weir and the two Bald Eagles are here every day. They sit in the trees and are just majestic. From beavers in the summer to this! W ow the weir has so much nature it’s a great place to explore.
