I saw a bald eagle on Sept 14th flying over the Chattahoochee near the bridge that crosses over the river at Johnson Ferry. 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.

Mitzi Flagg wrote the following: I saw a bald eagle fly by in my back yard twice on 12/2/2015 in the Parks of Olmstead near the lake. We live in Newnan, GA near Summergrove. It had a beautiful white head and I could see its yellow beak because it flew so close to our house.
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.
Elizabeth Dean wrote the following: I was standing with my back to Little Bear Creek in Chattahoochee Hills, South Fulton Co. looking east at the late afternoon light backlight the woods. 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!

My husband and I was walking along the Riverwalk of Columbus Ga., we witnessed something amazing that truly blessed us, a Bald Eagle on the rocks. He was eating on a fish that he had just caught. He allowed us to take a picture of him. Yes Columbus Ga., we got Eagles. They are truly a beautiful blessing!
