Regal Bald Eagle at Cressy Lakeside

Cressy-bald-eagleThe first Bald Eagle photographer David Mercer has seen at Cressy Lakeside. PEC Naturalist Terry Sprague has said bald eagles take about five years before they finally acquire the white head and tail. Bald eagles usually appear in the fall and seek out fish and carrion before heading north again to their breeding grounds in the spring. None has nested here along the Lake Ontario shoreline since the very early 1950s, he said, “although we hope one day they will return to this area as a nesting species. We have two huge nesting platforms erected in super dominant trees, both in the Black River area.” For more on County nature, visit Sprague’s website at www.naturestuff.net -David Mercer photo
