Brown Eagle?

by Christine Trillard
(Oakwood, Ontario,Canada)



Two days ago on my way from Oakwood, Ontario, to Oshawa around 2:30 pm.


At first I thought it was a Turkey Vulture but looking at the photos now it looks to be a Golden Eagle (Brown eagle) Does anyone know for sure?

I'm not sure, perhaps one of our readers will know.

I'm wondering whether it might be a juvenile Bald Eagle, as they stay brown for their first few years. Just a thought.

Eagle?
by: Anonymous

Thanks for commenting. Its nice to see so many different birds in our area. We also have a lot of Osprey now. They like to nest on top of hydro poles. When we report them, the hydro will eventually come out and build a platform so they nest on it. The birds return every year and use the hydro poles here.

What kind of bird

My neighbour insisted it was a Raven but it didn't look like one when I saw it from my car window.
