We saw our first wild eagle in the area today!! We were on SR 44 at the Shelby/Johnson in Indiana. This is close to I65 at the Franklin, In exit. This was about 10 minutes ago and it flew over the highway along the creek. So exciting and beautiful.

1/8/14 - I saw a bald eagle sitting for 20 minutes at my home on the river in downtown Elkhart. Then it circled over the river several times before swooping down and snatching a good sized fish, which it took to the ice island outside my window and proceeded to eat. Fabulous experience.

Today while driving east on Kessler blvd toward Binford blvd in Indianapolis, my 9-yr old son exclaimed from the back seat "a bald eagle, I see 2 bald eagles!!" we were skeptical until we pulled into our subdivision northwest of Fall Creek, when to our delight there were indeed 2 mature bald eagles circling our neighborhood fairly low and heading east. We watched them for ten to fifteen minutes! It was awesome!! Robin Wagly

We saw a mature bald eagle, most likely a female, this morning in our backyard. She stayed about 30 minutes, long enough for us to get pictures while she sat in a sycamore tree. We live in the town of Zionsville, Indiana, near State Road 421 (Michigan Road) and East Sycamore Street. This was an absolute thrill for our family!

Saw a mature Bald Eagle near Oakridge Road and E. Greyhound Pass in Carmel, IN in mid November. Very large and majestic as he swooped over the trees toward a retention pond. Saw another mature Bald Eagle on my property north of Westfield, IN on 12/4/13. Got my attention with a very different alarm call than others birds of prey common to our area. They are BIG birds when you see them up close.

Indiana: I saw a bald eagle flying south/southwest along Sugar Creek just north of the Shades State Park boundary. I was on the east bank of the river (Sugar Creek) at Deer's Mill camp grounds and watched the eagle fly by and land in a tree. It was very cool, luckily my friends saw it when I pointed it out, I'm not sure they would have believed it!

February 19th 2013, I saw a lone bald eagle flying in Indianapolis above Fall Creek near its junction with the White River. A news search reveals that this is becoming a frequent observance, as last month someone took very nice pics and uploaded them to a local news site. The pics were taken between the IUPUI campus and the Indianapolis zoo.

While walking my dog on the bike trail in Greenfield, IN yesterday (1-26) I heard geese honking and looking up I saw a large hawk-like bird but noticed that it had a white head and a fanned white tail. It was flying overhead and the geese (2) were following it. I couldn't think of any other hawk-like bird that had a white tail and head except for a bald eagle. I was standing on a bridge that spans the Brandywine Creek when I saw it, with my mouth hanging open. After coming home and looking at my bird books, I've come to the conclusion that it must have been an eagle. I was just stunned to say the least, and wondered if anyone else saw it that day.

I saw a bald eagle on the Southside of Indianapolis. It was flying over the White River right of Harding Street just north of I465.

January 2013- we live in northeast Indiana with over one hundred lakes in our county of 37,000. It is common to see a single bald eagle soaring the sky in search of fish after the lakes begin to form ice. In particular we live on a chain of lakes with one isolated spot that does not freeze in winter because of currents caused by elevation differentials in the lakes. As the last water to remain open in zero degree temperatures, the eagles are attracted to this area. We have not seen the m take fish though we have seen a Canadian goose become prey in the absence of a fish. They are enchanting birds when observed in flight.

Saw a bald eagle flying over at salamonie reservoir in Indiana. This was around section 29.

I saw a bald eagle flying around Pheasant Hills pond (right behind Kahler Middle School) in Dyer, IN (Lake County) in the northwest part of the state. Was able to snap the attached photo. It was the first time I'd ever seen one in this part of the state. The only other time I had seen one was in South Carolina. Truly impressive.
