Bald Eagle Port Dover Ontario

Isn't it great to see the "Bald Eagles" returning !!! Hard to believe but these magnificent creatures have made a huge comeback in southern Ontario over the last quarter century, after almost dying out because of the pesticide DDT, but the bald eagles are not out of the woods yet when it comes to long-term survival. After years of effort to bring the birds back, there were only 71 known nesting pairs of bald eagles in southern Ontario a decade ago, 2011 being the last year they were intensively monitored, there may be hundreds, if not thousands of nesting pairs now! Although these birds are now reproducing, they are still susceptible to chemicals in the environment and the health of both the tree canopy and the Ontario water systems.
