With the recent sightings of a bald eagle on Jamaica Pond (jamaicaplaingazette.com, Dec. 28, 2013), it should be noted that we had a visit from one eight or nine years ago that was featured on the front page of the Gazette.
I was the person who photographed that original bald eagle. I was on my way to work on a sunny winter day when I spotted the eagle from my car. I pulled over and went down to the water’s edge to capture some shots. The eagle was eating his lunch (probably a squirrel or other unfortunate creature!) on the iced-over pond. It was anamazing sight to see in the city!
