Birthday Bald Eagle

by Jessica
(London, Ontario, Canada)

I was driving down Wonderland Road in London, Ontario on September 5th, 2013.

I had just visited my sons Jacob and Ty at Woodland Cemetery. Both my boys passed away as infants and September 5th was Jacob's 2nd Birthday.

I saw what I thought at first was a hawk (we always see those) but I then took notice to the white.

At first I saw the white tail and thought it was a hawk with a white tail but as I drove by and caught a glimpse of the bird from the side and then head on, it was most certainly a Bald Eagle.

I've never seen one in my 30 years of life in nature (just in zoos) so I just know my birthday boy sent me that Bald Eagle.

It was close to the Greenway pollution plant so I have no doubt it was a Bald Eagle that I saw.

Thank you Jessica, for telling us about your Bald Eagle sighting, and I am so happy that seeing this magnificent bird was a comfort to you on such a sad day.

Bald Eagles on BobLo Island, Ontario
by: Anonymous

We live on Boblo Island - there is a tree down the street from us where a couple of Bald Eagles roost in their very large nest. We have had the extreme pleasure of watching the pair, raise their babies each year for the past three years! I am always in awe as they soar down the Detroit River and catch a fish! Such a sight to behold!

That is a nice thing to see on such a day in your life. So very sorry about Jacob and Ty. Stay strong and I bet that Eagle was your son saying hello!!!
