I was driving home on the 407 approaching Brittania Road, when I noticed two large birds that appeared to be Bald Eagles in an old dead tree at the edge of the water shield.

I wasn't aware that Bald Eagles were in Ontario. So, living fairly close by, I drove home grabbed my camera and returned to where I saw them, they were still there!

So carefully getting out of the car in a busy highway, I took several photos and stayed for a long time in hopes that they would take off, but no such luck today!!

Fearing for my safety at the side of the highway, I figured I had stayed long enough, and decided I had to leave.

Now I will be looking for this pair every time I pass by that spot.

I'm sure it's good hunting grounds. Which any luck they will stick around. It made my day!

What an awesome sight!!


I know our readers will enjoy your report and picture of that magnificent Bald Eagle, and I will also post this on our facebook page so that our facebook followers can also enjoy this.

Saw the Bald Eagle
by: Dee

I just saw a Bald Eagle exactly where you spotted it but was sitting on the bank of the water and I waited 10-15 minutes until it took flight. Loved it!!

Did I just see a pair of Bald Eagles in Port Credit?
by: Anonymous

I have now seen two very large birds in my neighborhood in Port Credit / Mineola a number of times. I can not confirm that they are Bald Eagles, as they are flying either too high or too fast for me to notice their white heads. Yesterday, May 23, 2019, at about 6:45 pm, I saw the pair fly over the length of my backyard, about 40 feet in the air, heading towards the Port Credit River. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this pair in the last few weeks.

Maybe other readers will have seen this pair and will let us know ... check back soon.

I’ve seen them on the 407 near Britannia since the spring/summer/fall of 2017. 2017 and 2018 I saw them in a pair.
I just saw one of them back today - March 23 2019. They must go somewhere else in the winter because this is my first sighting along there. The one Bald Eagle was on the ground and then flew off and was soaring over Britannia and 9th line.

Amazing sighting in Mississauga
by: Anonymous

I was driving on the 407 yesterday (August 8th) going east, and saw both Bald Eagles in the same tree in the same field!! It was evidently two Bald Eagles that sat perched on the tree so stoic with their dark bodies and white heads! I didn't stop as I was afraid for my safety on the highway but it was an incredible sight. Never have I ever seen Bald Eagles close to the city. The last time I saw Bald Eagles they were flying overhead the ocean in PEI! Amazing.

Only One?
by: Anonymous

I have been by the same area many times so far, but I only ever see one Eagle. I’m wondering if the other did not survive the winter, or even worse was taken as a trophy. The new construction of the park at their site may also cause an issue, sad to think. I will continue to watch for them!!
Hopefully one day I will see both!

Just saw one today with some sort of prey in his talons. Flew over us while travelling eastbound on Britannia at the 407. No doubt it was a Bald Eagle as we have seen many on the BC coast

Me too
by: sjd7aa

Saw likely the same (2) last fall/17, same spot. And I cursed myself for not pulling over to take a picture, as I didn't expect to see them again. Lo and behold, today 6/6/18 I drove by the watered area to the side of #407 and there was one eagle at water's edge, hanging out with some geese. And was late for a meeting so I still couldn't stop to take a picture :/

I think I saw the same Eagle
by: Anonymous

Hello. I was just driving home from work going east on the 407 on the right hand side. Just before Britannia Road I saw a Bald Eagle on the iced over pond trying to get at something. Traffic was heavy so I could not pull off, but I did another lap around and the eagle was still there. Very impressive to see.
