Did you see it?
A bald eagle was spotted in Southie on Tuesday morning. Yes, it’s a little unusual to see the majestic bird in the city but they have been seen before. This one was chilling high on top of a tree, keeping watch. According to MassWildlife, Massachusetts has a thriving bald eagle population so it’s not uncommon to see one in Boston.
CIS reader Jamie Dahill (yes, my brother) sent along this photo after spotting it near the Murphy Rink.
Grab some binoculars and head down to the beach and go bird watching! Be on the lookout in trees and in the sky. When flying, the bald eagle very rarely flaps its wings but soars instead, holding its wings almost completely flat. Its hooked bill, legs and feet are yellow.
Let us know if you see him! #SouthieEagle
