Second Sighting of Bald Eagle in Whitby
by One of our readers
(Port Whitby, Ontario, Canada)
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!
