Eagle Place, Brantford
by Maurice Walsh
My son Gregory lives in Brantford, Ontario.
On May 6 2013 I was talking to him on the phone and he told me of seeing a Bald Eagle on the Grand River.
And guess in what area of the city? Eagle Place!
It got it's name because the Eagles used it for a breeding area years ago.
I live in BC now. I'm 74 and spent more then half my life in Brantford Ontario, and never saw an Eagle there.
I've fished and boated on the river in that area. it's perfect for Eagles.I also lived in Brantford for a short time in the late 1970's, and I didn't see Eagles, although I would have loved to see one!
