Bald Eagle Spotted Flying down the Weir in Port Colborne
by Kim Edwards
(Port Colborne, Ontario, Canada )
Yesterday morning at 10:00 am I was walking my dogs down by Derek's Point in Port Colborne.
As we walked alongside the weir, enjoying the very loud voices of 100 or more Canada geese, terns and ducks, we were surprised to see a very large bird soar straight up the middle of the bridge.
This massive wing span caught my eye and silenced all the birds enjoying the water.
I stood still and watched this bird get closer and closer to the pedestrian bridge located by the old Robin Hood mill.
As the bird came closer I spotted it's white head and matching tail feathers as it passed us and landed in a large tree on the west side of the weir right beside the pedestrian bridge.
I watched as it sat for almost 40 minutes enjoying the sun!
It was a spectacular day!
Thank you for submitting the report of your Bald Eagle sighting - I hope you don't mind that I added a picture!
I will also post this on our facebook page so that our facebook followers can also enjoy this.
