Bald Eagles - Huntsville

This report was originally posted by Stephen Derraugh on ONTBIRDS (Feb. 11, 2017) and is provided here with the kind permission of the Ontario Field Ornithologists.

Beautiful day in Muskoka after days of heavy snow and ice rain. Tough slogging in the bush.

Witnessed two mature Bald Eagles behind the G8 Summit Centre, circling the Lookout hill/trail (Lions Lookout) situated behind the G8 Centre in Huntsville, Ontario. I watched them for a good 15 minutes but did not witness them descend to the ice or seek prey on the Muskoka River. We have 100's of ducks where the water is open on the river. With the deep snow and ice there very well may be a deer carcass that I have not found (or the ravens have alerted me too).

Good birding,
