Past couple of weeks there has been a Bald ?? sited on our ponds about 30 miles South of Atlanta. We have two white ducks that have been the object of his attention. Watching him dive bomb them has been very interesting. But needless to say one became breakfast last week. The other is now taking refuge under the boat house only venturing out for short periods of time. Well this morning I spotted a juvenile eagle. Have the adult eagle on video. Love living in the country!
Unusual thing happen a bit after 9:00 am Monday Morning 1-22-18. My wife had taken off to go to the Church in Columbus, GA. We live on Hamilton Mulberry Grove Road, off Hwy 315 (Harris County, Georgia).
Sitting in the kitchen looking out the window through the trees at the road, a Bald Eagle flew by carrying a squirrel. When my wife got back from Church I told her what I had seen and she shocked me saying that she saw the same Eagle when she was a short distance from the House on our Road, it was carrying the squirrel.
Watched a white-headed bald eagle soar across Lake Juniper in Marion County, GA this afternoon. I was told there are two nesting nearby just off Hwy 355. I saw only one soar across the lake and minutes later return across lake to direction from which it came. Four of us were having lunch and enjoyed this special experience.

Over the last few weeks I have seen 2 to 3 bald eagles around one certain Cottonfield. Today I got a better look as one was feeding on a possum roadkill and two more were purchased within 100 yards. I tried to get pictures but just reaching out of the window with my camera spooked them. This field is just north of Calvary Georgia on old 179 highway. The Eagles were full-grown with a 3 to 4 foot wingspan and stood close to 2 foot tall.
My wife and I saw a single bald eagle sitting in a tree and circling the three acre pond behind our house on Christmas day, 12-25-2017. After viewing your site, it's my belief that I've mis-identified an adolescent eagle as an Osprey over the past three years. I didn't not realize their fur was mottled in their early years. I'm not sure as to whether the mature eagle is the adolescent all grown up or not, but it was a beautiful sight to see.

I saw a mature adult bald eagle feeding off the carcass of an unknown (at that point) creature at the edge of Leisure Lake in my back yard. I observed the eagle feeding for at least 15 minutes and took pictures through my window. I quietly opened my door, hoping to get clearer pictures, but the movement caused the eagle to take flight across the lake, where it alighted in a cluster of trees to the northeast of my house. I ran out to see what the eagle was eating, and found the half-devoured carcass of a large 5-6 lb bass on the embankment. I went back in without touching the fish, and waited. I watched in amazed joy as a SECOND eagle flew to the carcass, while the other flew to another stand of trees across the lake to the northwest of my house. It appears that both birds were at the northeast cluster of trees, then one flew to the northwest vantage point while it’s (mate???!!) fed. Both of these birds appeared to be mature bald eagles in all their glory.
Saw a full grown Bald Eagle at least 5 years of age this morning around 11am on Hwy 34 just west of Hillibahatchee Bridge outside Franklin Ga. Full White head and tail feather quite large comparably to others I have saw before. Good chance it was a female. Quite rare to see them in this area.
Bald Eagle sighted Oct 12 2017. Monroe GA off of Monroe Jersey Road. 7:00pm. Eagle fly down to road for dead possum and flew off with it to rest in a pine tree while it ate.
I saw a large bald eagle on the Old Axson Rd. in the Fales Community about 1/2 mile north of the Coffee and Atkinson County lines in southeastern Georgia. This was on 13 Sept. 2017. The bird was perched on the east side of the road in a pine tree that had been damaged when hurricane Irma came through on 9/11.

I couldn't believe it so i turned around and went back and there it was. I pulled over and watched it for a minute and it flew and went high. Much to my surprise there was another flew out of the woods behind the yard. They were close to hwy 411 and old hwy 2 which goes up grassy mountain. Most beautiful bird i have ever seen.

I could hardly believe it because I've never seen one in the Atlanta area. I think it was carrying something like a squirrel (hopefully a fish) in its talons.

Rosie Cantrell wrote the following: Richmond Hill, GA. It was sitting by a pond. We were on the other side of the pond, my dog barked and scared another bird, it flew across the pond. The eagle flew off, glided around a tree, then back close to where it was sitting by the pond, but high in a tree. I couldn't see the white tail from the back view, but did from underneath as it flew. Our subdivision backs up to Hwy 17, so a pretty busy area, except for the wet, marshy area. First time I've seen once since moving to Georgia ten years ago.

A big bird caught my eye. It was headed south up the creek bed at tree canopy height. White head? Unbelievable. Couldn't have taken long to go overhead and then out of sight. I can't believe that I saw a Bald Eagle here.

We were driving to Church on highway 27 N. on October 18,2015. As we crossed the Chattahoochee River going in to Heard county near Centralhatchee, Georgia we watched the most beautiful American Bald Eagle soar in front of us traveling northbound and then turned and flew over the river. Absolutely amazing creatures.

I saw a bald eagle in Coweta County, Georgia.
My mother-in-law and I were driving past the Georgia Forestry Commission Office on Corinth Road when the eagle flew directly above us along the road for a good 1/4 mile.
She (of course I don't know if it was a he or she) was huge and couldn't have been more than 30 feet above us. Her wing span was probably close to as wide as my SUV.
She was beautiful. There appeared to be another smaller bird either flying along with or antagonizing her. I did not recognize the smaller bird. She was substantially smaller and I was so taken at the sight of the eagle that I did not notice anything specific about the smaller bird.
I work for the Fish and Wildlife Service and am so happy to see an eagle so close to my home on Corinth Road.
Francina Law wrote the following: While driving to work this morning,I saw a bald eagle soaring over Interstate 85 South, just outside Newnan, GA. I happened to see a large bird with a huge wing span in the sky-so large, it caught me off guard. I wanted to stop the car on the Interstate & stare but in a couple of seconds, it continued soaring while I noticed its amazingly white colored head and tail! What a blessing to behold!
