Yesterday morning (Feb. 3), we saw a Bald Eagle perched on a post south of Lakefield on the shore of the Otonabee River. We thought it might be a Golden Eagle or immature Bald Eagle. On our way home, we drove along the same stretch and saw the first bird with two others… a mature Bald Eagle and another younger one. We thought the younger ones could have been different ages since one’s plumage was closer to that of an adult than the first bird’s. Quite a sight… (N.B. left to right, there is a 1st winter, a 4th winter, and an adult plumage bird – Tim Dyson)
There were also three Trumpeter Swans on the same part of the river.
