Bald eagle sighting

I suspect you've noticed by now that I'm not much of a birder (yet!) but occasionally something catches my eye, such as these two Bald Eagles. A telephoto lens came in handy for capturing the pair who appeared to be enjoying their panoramic view of the tidal harbour. Did you know that Bald Eagles mate for life and live up to 25 years? If you're interested in taking a look at the rest of Bay of Fundy birding list, try the Grand Manan Whale Research Centre website.

We have a pair of bald eagles that have lived on Friar's Bay the last two years. Last spring, when the Nor'easter blew through, we didn't see them for months. They came back in late summer. It's good to see them on my morning walk over to the Roosevelt Cottage!
