Bald Eagle sighting in West Lincoln

by Margie Rietveld
(Fonthill, Ontario, Ontario)


We were driving along Regional Road 65 or Silver Road. We thought it was a very large Hawk until we got close and realized it was a Bald Eagle. I pulled over and backed the car up.


To see a sighting like that is unusual, but sure enough that's what it was. A bald eagle in West Lincoln.

How exciting! It's got to be good luck or something!

Yes, Margie, I think it must be good luck to see a Bald Eagle - I have been lucky enough to see several in the wild, but I feel the same each time I see one - I am filled with delight at the sight!

Here is a picture of a Bald Eagle, whichi, I hope, looks like the one you saw.

Bald Eagle Soars over Ontario St.
by: Rodney Dowd

It’s about 1:30 pm on June 29th 2021. My Step dad and I were just coming back from our Sobeys groceries run when I saw a big bird flying high above near the corner of Ontario and King Streets. I thought it was just your standard Turkey vulture because it was so big. Although Turkey Vultures and that big of a bird of prey they do have enormous wings hence my first thought. At second glance I noticed a white head and then white tail feathers. I couldn’t believe my eyes! An actual wild Bald Eagle!! It was flapping away and heading towards Shoppers Drug Mart area.

Beamsville - 2 Bald Eagles Sighting
by: April Giangrande - Grimsby

March 3, 2021 - I was driving on Ontario Street in Beamsville, turned left onto King Street and approximately 30 feet above my car 2 bald eagles flew into a tree on the escarpment side of the street. I was shocked and in awe of the beauty. This is my first sighting which enticed me to search the internet in which I landed here. What a unique experience, just wanted to share. 🦅🦅

We have a bald eagle sitting in our bush. Beautiful white head, although he is a little far for my camera.
We are south of Silver Street in West Lincoln.

Eagle in West Lincoln?
by: Bonnie Harper

I am almost positive I saw a 3 - 4 year old Eagle in the Caistorville area of West Lincoln ywo days ago. I had just plugged my phone into my car charger due to low battery a few minutes before and was disappointed that I couldn't get a picture of it! It was about 30-40 feet away in the field next to me and I watched it for at least a solid minute before it took flight and flew right over me!

Bald Eagle in Caistorville
by: Anonymous

I was taking a break from gardening in my backyard, looking at the Chippewa Creek and I saw a giant bird which I thought it was just another great blue heron but noticed white. I watched it come into view and it was soaring low, down in the creek bank following the creek up stream. That's when I was amazed to realize what I saw was a Bald Eagle. It was about 100' from me and so crystal clear. So I told my husband as he was further down the bank - look it's a bald eagle! He turned around and saw a full view close up. Thank goodness he was there to have shared that view. Most amazing sight to have seen. I could see his intense stare and details as he was that close!
