An Abundance of Eagles
Monday, April 24, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
On April 24th, Gord McMillan will present a video and talk about his success in attracting both Bald Eagles and Golden Eagles to his Eastern Ontario country property in winter.
Gord McMillan of Golden Lake has hunted, fished, trapped, canoed, snowshoed and explored the Deacon Hills virtually his entire 58 years.
He has had the privilege of witnessing and documenting one of the greatest wildlife recoveries of all time, the return of the Bald Eagle.
Using trail cameras, Gord has also documented the remarkable comeback of the Eastern Golden Eagle, amassing thousands of photographs and hundreds of hours of video in the process. He has produced three DVDs — two on eagles and one on canoeing. His most recent DVD identifies 16 individual Golden Eagles observed over a 16-day period in 2015.
Gord joined the Colorado-based Eastern Golden Eagle Working Group in 2016 as their first Canadian camera trapper.
