Bald Eagles in Oxford County
(Tillsonburg, Ontario, Canada)
Bald Eagle - Tillsonburg, Ontario
Yesterday, my Mom and I were travelling between Woodstock and Tillsonburg, Ontario.
When we were near Norwich I saw a Bald Eagle flying fairly low over a farm and pointed it out to my Mom.
About an hour later we were in Tillsonburg, near the Walmart store, and saw two Bald Eagles.
These two were higher up, but were unmistakable as they were clearly black, with white heads and tails, which we could see well every time they slowly circled and the sun shone on them.
This was on Friday, September 25th 2009, the first sighting near Norwich was at around 2:30 pm and the sighting of the two birds was around 4:00 pm and lasted for about 15 minutes, until the birds disappeared, heading south toward Lake Erie.
I don't know if the bird in the first sighting was one of the pair that we was in the second sighting, but I was so pleased to have seen Bald Eagles twice in one day!
