Well that’s a hatchin’

You may have heard that the first bald eagles to be born in Hamilton for decades have recently hatched. With a simple search of the internet, you might find this interesting CBC article, but on a more exciting note, why not see it for yourself. The eagles nest is located in Cootes Paradise and is visible from the boardwalk that runs through the marshland. If you would like to see it and learn more about Hamilton’s naturalist efforts, there is a planned excursion at 5:30 pm today. Led by Jen Baker of the Hamilton Naturalists Club, the group will be meeting at the Nature Interpretative Centre at the Arboretum, Old Guelph Road. This is a rare opportunity and may serve as a wonderful break from exam studying.
