A golden eagle was soaring over Lindsay Lake (2 km north of Opinicon Road, accessible via the Lindsay Lake Trail) at 4 pm today. This may be the same bird that has been seen along Opinicon Road periodically since Feb 23. The eagle has been seen most frequently in the vicinity of the small cemetery on Opinicon Road. There are many bald eagles in the area too.

At Chaffey's Lock: One drake hooded merganser was among the 12 trumpeter swans and 50+ Canada geese at Chaffey's Lock this afternoon.


Directions to Opinicon Road from Kingston: North on Division Street/Perth Road/County Road 10 to just past Perth Road Village. Turn east (right) on Opinicon Road. Follow the road for about 11 km to the small cemetery on the north side of the road. Continue some 9 km along Opinicon Road to get to Chaffey's Lock.
