Bald Eagle and Golden Eagle Spotted

(King City, Ontario)

I have seen a Golden Eagle flying over our farm (located in King City, Ontario).

Once I saw the bird gliding over our 15 year old Jack Russell Terrier. He was about 8 feet above us and luckily several small birds were attacking his head and caused him to lose balance.

I have seen the bird two other times, but not such a close distance. I have never seen a Golden Eagle here before. Normally, we see Hawks and a Horned Owls on the farm.

Earlier the summer we also spotted a Bald Eagle in Georgian Bay flying over an Island Called American Camp. Stunning!

One of our neighbors at Thunder Beach saw a Bald Eagle on the Point.

I hear that these large birds are making a comeback to Ontario.
