This blog takes its name from the Latin name of the Bald Eagle and as luck would have it, I saw one while walking the seawall on Sunday. The bird was sitting high atop a tree over looking the bay. The view must have been great from there. At first I thought it might be an owl but then I was thinking, what would an owl be doing out in the daytime. Then the bird looked down and I saw the yellow beak and the white head. That said it all. I looked the bird up in my bird guide when I got home to find that this was probably a young eagle in its first year. It was the colouring of the plumage that had me fooled at first until the head was seen. So, you never know what you might see while walking the seawall or hiking through the park.
