Where do Eagles Fly? Bedford!

Local photographer Shannon Dillon recently walked her dog alongside the South Road soccer field when she heard an unusual sound.

“I squeaked the toy I brought to call Percy, then a very similar squeak came from the trees.  I looked for the source, and there were 2 Bald Eagles! I thought I was seeing/hearing things.”

Dillon tried to take a picture but it was indecipherable with her phone camera. “I tried to get closer and one got spooked and flew away. I took the video because I didn’t think I’d even believe myself.

“They were HUGE,” she observed.

Nice sighting. Bald Eagles are seen daily at Great Meadows on Monsen Road in Concord.
Eagles nested near Fairhaven Bay on the Sudbury River this year.
