We are surrounded

I live just outside of West Lorne heading towards Rodney Ontario.
This week alone I have seen an adult Bald Eagle three times.
The first time was mid-afternoon on Wednesday. It was sitting on a snowbank beside the road. I am assuming it was eating as it didn't move until my car got very close to it.
I then saw it twice on Friday mid to late morning.
It was in the same field again near the road and this time it was clearly eating a rabbit as it tried to carry it away.
This has been a very cold winter and the lakes are frozen so that might have something to do with it.
In late autumn this year we saw what we suspected to be a hawk hanging around our yard (we live in a wooded area).
We had just installed a few bird feeders. Hawks are commonly seen in the area so that is what we thought it was.....now I am not positive that it wasn't a adolescent eagle though.
Either way it was a beautiful creature.Thank you so much for telling us about your Bald Eagle sightings - I have seen them along highway 401 in the Rodney / West Lorne area.
I also found a great picture of a Bald Eagle, which I have added here.
