Ontario Bald Eagle Sightings
by Colleen, Ren & Co.
(Kitchener, Innisfil, Huntsville)
Last week we received reports from several readers who wrote to tell us about their Bald Eagle sightings.
Colleen from Kitchener said ..... On February 26th 2012, sighting along the Grand River on the Riverside Drive trail, beautiful second sighting only in my 45 years!
A reader from Huntsville ..... On Sunday February 26 2012, just after lunch on Aspdin Road at Highway 45, I saw what I thought was a Turkey Vulture soaring 80 feet above ..... very excited to confirm it was a Bald Eagle, and I had a great long look at it.
Ren says ..... I was driving north on Highway 400 on February 19th 2012, and perched in a tree was a lone Bald Eagle. It caught my eye because it was huge and much larger than the Hawks I normally notice. I spotted it a couple kilometres south of Innisfil near exit 75. Wow! Did not know that we actually ever had Bald Eagles in Ontario. Hope we see many more.Thank you all so much for writing to tell us about your Eagle sightings, our readers will enjoy reading what you told us, and will perhaps watch for these magnificent birds in their own areas!
