Yesterday, Feb. 2, at around 3 PM, I was driving on Hwy 28 to Northey’s Bay Road. Just after the big bend after Young’s Point, an immature Snowy Owl flew across the highway and off across a field. Shortly after and just before Northey’s Bay Road, I almost hit an immature Bald Eagle. It swooped down over the highway in front of me then banked and headed for my wind shield. It was so close I could clearly see its black head and eyes and beak. It pulled up and over the van just in time! Very exciting. Birding at home this winter has been very dull due to frequent and lengthy visits by a Cooper’s Hawk.
