Location of sighting

Driving east on Dundas Street at 3:15 pm on Thursday, Oct 1st 2015 I saw a large bird out my left window as I crossed the bridge over Lyons Valley Park in Oakville.


It was soaring over the valley at the same level as the bridge.

At first I thought it was a large Turkey Vulture but it seemed almost 50% larger and there was a prominent white tail.

It then banked towards me & I saw it's beautiful white head. It was majestic.

I was shocked and yet it seemed right at home in the midst of suburbia.

I wondered if it was just traveling through? Has anyone else seen them in this area?

Pair of Bald Eagles
by: Anonymous

Today I saw a pair of Bald Eagles perched in a tree on the north side of the 407 and Third Line. Beautiful to see them. First time seeing eagles for my wife and kids. Great to see nature while driving along the 407. February 16th at 2:45pm.

Dundas and 16 mile creek

Just spotted an eagle flying north following Sixteen Mile Creek crossing over Dundas. It was the white tail that got my attention. Wish I could have pulled over and watch.

Awesome!!!! Bald Eagles have been seen more and more in this area. A breeding pair have taken residence at the Burlington R.B.G (Royal Botanical Gardens). I see them soaring above the 403 between Waterdown Road and highway 6.
