Patch was treated to Eagle sightings along the Farmington River in Collinsville Tuesday morning.
Both an adult and an immature eagle (we believe) were perched in tree along the river and we were able to get a few photographs. It's a common spot for Bald Eagles.
Jay Kaplan, director of Roaring Brook Nature Center, said the two birds are likely the two that have been in the area all summer. However, this is also the season where they are moving south, so it's also possible they are migrating birds, he added.
Kaplan also said the dead tree where the eagles go is a great spot to view all kinds of wildlife.
At various times, Kaplan said he's seen osprey, peregrine falcon, red-tailed hawk and cooper's hawk there.
"Residents should keep an eye on that tree," he said.
There were once two trees in that spot and Kaplan said that unfortunately that one is not likely to stand too much longer.
Earlier this year, Patch also ran a photo of an eagle in flight, taken by Steve Roberto. To see that picture, along with some more information about the birds, click the above link.
