My wife Dale & I went out for a boat ride on Buckhorn Lake. As we passed through Harrington Narrows and just past Curve Lake there is a small island where the Trent Severn Waterway splits into two directions. We noticed a big bird perched on a dead tree. I stopped the boat, and we confirmed that the bird in the tree was definitely a Bald Eagle! Unfortunately we hadn’t brought our camera. After awhile, we saw the Eagle take off. What a sight!
