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!

Then 2 hrs later while I was in my car driving through the subdivision at the corner of Seabreeze and Harbor drives

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.

Borden, IN at the Clark County Landfill
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.
