Woodland Drive Bald Eagle - Bill Astell

Woodland Drive Bald Eagle – Bill Astell

On March 21, my wife and I watched two adult Bald Eagles sitting on the ice in front of our house and eating a Mallard duck they had caught. A third eagle, an immature, arrived and tried unsuccessfully to join in on the meal. Recently, one of the eagles also caught and ate a feral cat. My wife and I have seen eagles take ducks here in past years, as well. We live on Cameron Street, just north of the Peterborough By-Pass bridge. There is always a great deal of waterfowl activity on this part of the river.
