Dear HWW,

I was overwhelmed and estatic today, (February 24, 2007) to have been driving down a road in Hasting's Ontario and looked up and saw a Bald Eagle in a tree.

I have never seen a Bald Eagle in the wild before. My husband and I came back home and got our binoculars to take back and watch the bird. We stayed for quite sometime watching this magnificant bird. We believe that it was an adult male by the distinct dark vs white colouring.

It was amazing and wonderful. We hope that this eagle and a mate will choose this area to breed.
