Eagle sighted in South Grey County.
(Ayton, Ontario, Canada)
We need help from all our readers who are amateur Ornithologists! One of our readers sent us this report of her bird sighting, and we need help identifying this bird.
On April 9th 2010, I looked out our patio doors and watched a bird hover in the wind. It was a very windy day here, and I watched it for some time, then grabbed my camera.
I was able to get several reasonable shots of it in the air. It also landed in the field out back and I was able to get a wonderful shot of it on the ground. The ground shot along with one soaring shot that shows the straight wings with a slight curl to the tip identifies it as an eagle. What a joy to see!!
Ayton, is in the Listowel, Hanover and Walkerton area of Ontario. Thank you so much for your submission to our website, Pam, I hope one of our readers will be able to identify this bird. Pam wondered if there are Golden Eagles in her area, or might this be a juvenile Bald Eagle - perhaps someone could let us know!
