Eaglets among at least five known nests in the County

The County’s Paul Wallace has been observing an Eagles nest for a fourth successful year of breeding.

“This couple has been together for at least five years. The first year they had one Eaglet, the next two, then one and now two more Eaglets. According to (County naturalist) Terry Sprague there are at least five nests in the area.”

Unlike other raptors, there are not many eagle species that reside in Ontario but most are found near bodies of water where they do most of their hunting. Eagle populations are impacted by continued development of shoreline habitat and pollution.

Paul Wallace took these photos May 15, noting the Eaglets hatched in early May.
