Two sightings near the Grand River

by Chris
(Waterloo, Ontario, Canada)

We have lived in this area for a long time and I had never seen a Bald Eagle in the wild before.

A few weeks back we were driving from Waterloo, Ontario, to Elora and saw huge bird soaring right above the road, near Pilkington Overlook (on the Grand).

When we saw the unmistakable white head we couldn't believe we were seeing an Eagle.

A few days ago we were in the Cambridge area and going over the Grand River bridge on Fountain Street near the village of Blair.

Sitting on a small piece of ice in the middle of the River was a Bald Eagle.

Lots of geese around that were giving it a pretty wide berth.

Bald Eagles on the Grand River
by: Julie Jordan

Last summer on our way home we stopped to check out a large bird in the trees. It was a Bald Eagle.
We were just north of Grand Valley, Ontario.

On the bottom of your Bald eagle sighting page you have an ad for Crappie fishing. It has some good tips but is rather long winded. As the old saying goes KISS " Keep it simple Stupid". By the way I don't think Crappies were original native to Ontario. We caught the first ones in Port Severn in the late seventies and early eighties. Had no clue what they were. With the help of some american fishing mags we were able to identify them. Since then we have caught a lot of them, and they are mighty fine eating!

Thanks for the info - Google decides what to put on our pages, we don't get to choose what is advertised, they are supposed to select something appropriate for the topic of the page, and they usually do a good job!
