I followed a tiny spec in the sky until it became bigger and bigger. When I reliezed it was not an Ospey I allereted the resident experts of the bird heading at us. It came almost right over us. It was verified as a migrating adult Bald Eagle. This was by far the biggest thrill I've, had at park.

January 20, 2015, I saw a beautiful adult bald eagle sitting in a tree top on Pleasant Hill Road near Corner Ketch Road. It was a beautiful sight, and I could hardly believe my eyes. This spot was near what used to be a small creek, and it is about a mile or so from White Clay Creek.

There are two beautiful Bald Eagles living in a tree in our back yard ! I see them every day. A mom and a dad! They are so majestic and graceful. They fill me with pride and hope. I just love watching them!

We live in Wilmington, De. Near the Bellefonte/Penny Hill area. For the past few weeks we have seen a bald eagle flying around the area and on several occasions have seen it actually perched in our trees which are old, large oak trees. Tonight was very special since I went out to walk the dog and noticed 2 eagles. Since researching them I am guessing they were a pair with one being larger than the other. They have been pooping all over the property and house and boy does it create a large area of predominately white but also some green. Looks like someone threw a can of paint on the ground from a high area. Having recently gotten married we feel this is a great omen and hope they are residents and not migrating.

Saturday November 1, 2014 at 1:00 PM, I saw a juvenile eagle watching a fresh deer kill in the yard of a home on Brendford Road (near the railroad tracks). It was approximately 10 feet away. I passed by the site again at 1:30 PM the eagle was on top of the deer feeding. At 1:45 PM I saw an adult eagle feed on the same deer. The juvenile eagle was gone. We attempted to take a picture of the adult, but it took flight. I went back a short time later, but the eagles did not return.

While driving my children to school in Smyrna, DE, we collided with a deer. I returned later to find the deer being feasted upon by a bald eagle.

Female bald eagle sited on Red Mill Road as I was driving past the old Red Mill site near Newark, Delaware.
I almost ran my car off the road.
Beautiful full wing spread at tree top level.
Absolutely majestic.

I live in Rehoboth Beach, DE in Villages at Old Landing, a community about a mile north of the northwest corner of Rehoboth Bay. On Jan. 2, 2013, mid-afternoon (it was cold, not frigid, with some high clouds), I was driving my vehicle, with my wife as a passenger, heading westbound on Selbourne Ln., the main road leading into the community. My wife spotted an eagle off to her right. It was flying north-to-south directly over our vehicle, approximately 20 to 30 feet in the air. I slowed down to observe it; its black lustrous wings were fully spread, not flapping, and its head had the distinctive full white plumage. As it passed over us, I watched it fly over a large pond on the south side of the road, where a variety of birds appear throughout the year, including egrets and blue herons. It began flapping its wings and passed over the pond and then over houses on a road south of the pond, disappearing beyond a thicket of tall trees. It was the first sighting of a bald eagle by both me and my wife in the two and a half years that we have lived in Rehoboth Beach.

I just recently observed a bald eagle in Middletown, Delaware. The eagle flew and landed in the field around Marl Pit Road and Cedar Lane Road. I have lived here for over four years and have been seeing them more often from Middletown, DE to Elkton, MD along Rt 301 and Rt 40.

At the Delaware Maryland border, the sighting was it was like 10:30 11/25/2012 Sunday I was sitting in the kitchen at the table, looking at the kids and looking outside because the blinds where up on the patio door.When all of a sudden this gigantic bird it didnt flap in it just swooped in like woosh, what made it so different was the size of the bird, the way it swooped in and the pure white that was its head, the yellow beak looked gold but what confirmed it was the white at the bottom the tail feathers which was also clean pearly white. It lands on a tree branch the third tree without any leaves and is slightly shaded by the large green tree, another confirmation that it was an eagle was when it landed the weight of the bird tilted the leaveless tree. So I grab my coat and hat and go outside towards the trees when I get over there and look up there it is way up on the sky. Way up in the sky and its circling me, Im looking up its looking down at me one flap and it could go in a circle amazing. The size of the bird, the white head and bottom, and the gold beak. The height once it started flying it was an eagle. It was amazing I remember thinking all day "I just saw an eagle" wow MIcheal Oglesby Newark Delaware

I saw a bald eagle taking flight from a low tree next to Route 318 near the Maryland Delaware border in Sussex County this morning, approximately 7:45am. It was an adult, approximately the size of a vulture; in fact I mistook it for a vulture until I saw its enormous talons and white tail feathers. When the head came into view, I was in awe! My first sighting of our nation's most majestic bird!

I live in South East Chester County near the Delaware/ Maryland border. Over the last ten years my wife and I have had the pleasure to spot and watch Bald Eagles on many occasions in the county side around our home and even from our home. The first local sighting we had was in the White Clay Creek State Park one morning while on the way to work. It was in a tree over looking the creek. We stopped and watched one on the outskirts of Oxford that was perched in a tree in someone's front yard. Then of course are the many eagles at Conowingo Dam. Last winter I spotted one perched on a hay bail in a field in Unionville. It was keeping watch on a dead deer. Last spring in a field along Rt. 842 across from the Stone Barn Restaurant a mature eagle and a juvenile flew alongside the car for a short distance. I should mention that we work in West Chester and drive 26 miles each way on back roads through the beautiful Chester County countryside. Two weeks ago just outside of West Chester on Allerton Rd. while crossing the Brandywine River my wife yelled for me to stop. Sitting in a tree over the water was yet another one. Last Monday morning I spotted one and on Thursday morning spotted two from my office window as they flew over the campus. This morning a coworker stopped me in the hallway all excited about a bald eagle that flew over the parking lot as she was walking in to work. All of these sighting prompted me to see if there was a place to report or discuss these awesome encounters. I need to get back in the habit of carrying my camera with me.

My wife and I live in Northern Delaware. We just saw a pair of Bald Eagles perched in a tree along Red Clay Creek about a mile south of the Yorklyn Bridge on Rt 82. Initially we saw one perched on top of a telephone pole and decided to go home to get our camera. When we returned we saw the eagle perched in a tree, and it then took off and flew to another tree and perched beside a second eagle. We were able to take some pictures (not very good ones). What a wonderful experience to see not only one eagle, but a pair!

I was at Del-Val College on December 29th, 2010 at 1pm, looked up and saw this soaring bird. Curious to see its white head and white tail I wondered what it was and watched for about 3 minutes as it soared above. I made sure of the details so not to jump to it being an eagle. Got home and checked my books and yes, that is what I saw! Wow. It was just in a soaring pattern, and it moved further away in its swirls I followed it in the sky as I stood there. It was heading in the south direction of Rt. 202 above Del-Val College.

I work in the Carvel State Building in Wilmington and at around 8:30a this morning as I looked out my window I saw a majestic bald eagle soaring about 12 stories high.. The bird was flying west towards Rodney Square. What a sight!
