Frank Johnson wrote the following: 09/07/2015: I was kayaking on Roush lake in Huntington county in the eastern portion. I spotted a immature eagle in a dead tree. I approached slowly hoping to get a picture as I had a telephoto lens on my camera. He did not let me get close but I had a pair of binoculars and got a good look at him.
09/05/2015: I was driving on 200E in Huntington county just south of the Little River (Wabash). I spotted a mature eagle in a dead tree near the roadside. I drove past and stopped about100 yards down. When I got out of the car he did not stay around long. Wonderful to see.

Jess Harris wrote the following: 9/27/15 Saw a mature female eagle on 421 right after leaving the town of Monon. I turned down a gravel road to follow it and got a few blurry pictures. I only got a few glimpses of her head but her white tail was just gleaming in the sun!

Ashley Book wrote the following: While driving to work on Grant Line Road (New Albany, Indiana) on 9/24/15 at 7:30am I spotted a huge bird flying to land in a tree. I assumed it was a turkey vulture from the wing span until it landed. I looked up from my car and did a double take when I realized there was a bald eagle sitting on the branch. Wow! What a beautiful creature, and what a privilege to see it in the wild.

I screamed, daughter thought I was going to hit something. I turned around to try & get a picture because he never flew off, but unfortunately a big truck rumbled west bound & scared him away. I felt very privileged.

My boyfriend and I rented a cabin at Wasatch Lake in Poland, IN and saw at about 4:12 pm February 14, 2015 a Bald Eagle flying over the frozen lake. I have yet to see one as big as we just saw it was beautiful!

Jan 19, 2015 – I spotted a bald eagle flying over Route 46 just west of Columbus, Indiana while riding my bike on the People’s Trail. Early evening /late afternoon
Feb 12, 2015 – Saw an eagle surveying some road kill from a tree near the Driftwood River, directly west of Columbus, Indiana. Driving home from work and it was directly above the road! Got to snap a couple pictures before I left it alone. It seemed equal parts fascinated and annoyed at all the cars driving by.

I just saw a Bald Eagle in Plainfield, In.
The eagle flew over my car in a parking lot behind Carmike movie theatre.
I couldn't get to my phone fast enough to take a good picture. At first, I just thought it was a hawk or something, then it turned and came in the direction of my car. I could easily see the white head at that point and there was no doubt about what this was. It was stunning.

I was traveling back from Indianapolis this morning along I-65 South. I looked to the right and in a wooded area very clearly saw a large bald eagle in the trees. It was around mile marker 60 going south.
We observed these magnificent birds while in Yellowstone park several years earlier and I had forgotten how big they were.
What a delight to see them close to home.

At about noon on 1/24/15, my family and I watched a mature bald eagle in a field near US 31 and Whiteland Rd in Whiteland, IN. First one I've seen in our area and it made my day!

Saw one perched in a tree near New Paris, IN (Elkhart Co) just before 9:00AM on Jan 22nd, 2015, along CR 142 about 2/10th of a mile west of SR 15. Stopped and took some pictures for about a minute, then it noticed me and stared, so I left. First time I've seen one in the wild in Indiana. It was a bit smaller than ones I've seen wild in Alaska. It was surveying the snow-covered fields…

Son and I spotted a Bald Eagle perched in a tree near the intersection of Highway 160 and Highway 60 – just south of Salem Indiana. We stopped and admired the site for a minute or two – the Eagle appeared to be hunting the field just south of the auto mart near that intersection – it was an amazing site and the first Eagle I have seen in the wild in this area in my 40+ years –glad my son was with me. Time was approximately 9:30am ET on Saturday 01/17/2015

On December 6th around 12:30pm, my wife & I were driving on 41 North just outside Princeton, IN nearing the White River when I spotted two large raptors flying within a few hundreds yards of each other. Looking up both my wife & I were able see it was a Bald Eagle. Seconds later we neared the other bird, and it was also another Bald Eagle.

Quite sure I saw a juvenile bald eagle on 11-20-14 in the morning in Richmond, Indiana, Wayne county. It flew overhead as I was driving over the West Main Street bridge that goes over Sim Hodgkin Pkwy. Tail feathers were turning white but the head wasn't yet so suspect it was nearing adulthood!
Jen Hill

Saw one, possibly two at a retention pond in Heartland Crossing in Camby, Indiana.
DeAnna Poon

A friend and I admired a bald eagle this morning on shoreside tree just below Salamonie Dam (Huntington County IN). Several other birds of equal or greater size were actively fishing. No spotting scope or binoculars to ID those, but the baldy was a good sighting.

2nd sighting of a mature Bald Eagle yesterday 11/11 on my road. He was soaring over fields being harvested. Saw him last week too while farmers were in their fields. Johnson County, east of 135 and south of Whiteland Road. I hope he lives here because it is a joy to see him soar!

On 10/29/2014, while driving south bound on I -65, somewhere around the Renssalaer area (I'm not very familiar with the area, but it was quite a ways before the windmills), I spotted a golden eagle perched in a tree. Being familiar with adult and juvenile bald eagles, and having reviewed in my Peterson's guide, I was excited to confirm that it indeed was a golden eagle!
Michelle Bazin

I had the pleasure of seeing a nice mature bald eagle October 28, 2014 in Whitestown. It was soaring over the Anson development and landed in a tree next to I-65. Awesome.

I saw a bald eagle flying due south across the IUPUI campus in downtown Indianapolis, IN today (10/20/2014). I spotted it from about 1/8th mile away from a 3rd floor conference room. It was flying fairly low…just a few feet above a five story parking garage. I originally mistook it for one of several hawks and falcons we have around campus. But the white head and tail stood out in stark contrast to the moody blue-gray clouds we had this morning. My first bald eagle sighting ever, and it was in the middle of the city!
