Today is October 12th 2012

We were out in our yard yesterday and we had a sighting above us. It was a Bald Eagle. Just soaring overhead on air currents. Second time here at Port Whitby.

The first time was several years ago when a juvenile bird swooped down and took a duck and ate it by the pier, sitting on a large pole by the power lines.

I have never seen a bird eat so quickly as this young bird did.

In seconds it had cleaned the duck and proceeded to start and then finished cleaning it and flew away with it.

Young bird. Wonderful!

I just saw a Bald Eagle soaring above my house in Whitby (Maple and Brock area). First time I have ever seen one! I am still excited!

I'm wondering if we're seeing the same Bald Eagle.
Last week and the week before I spent sometime at Lynde Shores and Halls Road in Whitby, Ontario, taking bird photos. Both occasions I was fortunate enough to see and photograph a Bald Eagle soaring overhead, once carrying a large fish. This was a juvenile who's head was not yet white. Magnificent bird. Last January I saw two Bald Eagles at Jackson's Point on Lake Simcoe. Because there was still open water they hadn't migrated further south. Maybe you'll get to see this Bald Eagle on many more occasions to come.
