A fantastic sighting of a Bald Eagle was caught this week at Lake Wicwas! A resident of Chemung road took this picture and gave this account:
Taken on a walk 11/26/11 on Chemung road, just past where snow machines cross Chemung road on the south side of the road. Someone threw a turkey breast down over the 'edge-of-road' bank. Crows were picking at it which drew attention and he looked up to see this LARGE bald eagle watching.... The eagle left and we waited and we spotted a turkey vulture in a tree in the swamp.
It's fantastic to have so many nature watchers around the lake! Thanks for sharing. (If the photographer gives permission, I'll credit you with the photo - leave a comment or send me an email at email@example.com.)
