Eagle still at Humber Bay: November 8, 2021

My grandfather wrote: Eagles are impressive birds. Nineteen Ontario Lakes are named Eagle Lake, and some forty localities have names starting with eagle.

They are usually found near water close to abundant fish and waterfowl for prey.

There was an eagle at Humber Bay when we visited on November 3 and likely the same one was here again this morning.

NATURE POETRY

The trample of robins and woodlarks on the brown leaves.
and the patter of squirrels on the green moss;
The fall of an acorn on the ground, the pattering of nuts on 
the hazel branches as they fall from ripeness.                       – John Clare (1793–1864)

Miles Hearn
