This weekend Hubby and I went along with a fellow who knew where to find the Bald Eagles on Lake Simcoe. I had heard last year that there were some that had been seen up that way. I really wanted to see one. It was an off and on day weather wise with a little sun and then a little sleet and then sun again but was very windy by the lake. We did see many ducks out in the open water such as Mallards, Common Merganser, and Bufflehead. We did see the Eagles flying overhead and we got one shot.
Today we went back on our own to see if we could get a better look at the Eagles. There were hundreds of ducks out in the open water. At one point I was standing looking over the water and my husband went back to the car to get the camera and just then this large bird rose from somewhere below me and came flying up and all I could do was quietly call for Paul and watch with my mouth agape as he flew past me. Missed the shot again. All I can say was that it was magnificent with a huge wingspan and a large yellow beak. So I am told they birds will stay as long as the water stays open and the ducks are available for their food source. If the weather stays as mild as it has been we will go looking again.
I will be joining Mary for Mosaic Monday. Have a great week. Valerie
