My wife and I had the extreme pleasure to make our first bald eagle sighting this past Sunday, March 13, while driving past a field in Spinnerstown PA! What a beautiful sight! Though now, every field I drive past I look for one, and am watching the skies...hope I don't cause an accident!

Not Eagles but still beautiful birds, the Pittsburgh area seems to be getting a lot of them lately, the rivers are pretty clean now & plenty of wooded areas that are too steep for building. Pretty gutzy guy IMO.

I really do not notice the bald eagles around here, as Sam said they are pretty common. The raptor I enjoy watching is the American Kestrel.

They will cruise the hay ahead of the haybine to catch prey escaping from the ruckus created by the mower.

that's a cedar waxwing, very similar to a cardinal same territories and habits.

he has nothing to fear the eagle knows full well he can't catch him from there.

They've been showing up around here in central NY in increasing numbers.

Saw one while at Fort Ticonderoga. It was late in their season and late in the day. They were closing and we were the last ones left in the fort.

We were standing at the north wall looking out over the battle field that slopes from the woods on the left, gently down to the water far off on our right. A bald eagle took off from a tree top closest to the Fort,.... and with what looked like incredibly wide wing span, slowly glided down toward the water.

We stood watching it in the quiet until it disappeared in the trees at the water's edge.

Easy to see why they call it such a "majestic bird".

Two new birds have been spotted along the Lehigh River in the Palmerton, PA area as recent as yesterday.

Not sure if you guys heard, a local bird in the Bowmanstown, PA was shot earlier in the summer by some clown who lived in Lehighton. This eagle was living in the area. I spotted it myself 3x in a year. Hard to imagine why one would shoot an eagle. But he did get caught.
