Bald Eagle Spotted!

It's no April Fool's-- there was a bald eagle spotted on Coventry Lake on April 1, 2011.  Coventry Lake resident and nature photographer, Bob Cassidy, captured some pictures of the eagle on our lake.  The eagle in the picture is an adult.  The juvenile eagle would be darker in color with patches of white on its wings.  Often bald eagles are seen in pairs, so keep your eyes open!  There are only 100 nesting sites in Pennsylvania.  Amazing!

  1. I saw this Photo in the Pottstown Mercury today which led me to this site. I live in Birchrunville and have been seeing Bald Eagles around since early March. They seem to be centering around 2 farms in my area.
    Sheeder Mill Farm off Pughtown road and a dairy farm at the intersection
    of Pughtown Road and French Creek road.
    I caught a good look at an adult today
    at 7:15 am on my way to work, a great way to start my day!
