Saw a bald eagle flying northward overhead this afternoon. Location is Woodridge subdivision, off Hwy 22 between Madisonville and Mandeville. This part of the neighborhood borders on swampy pine scrub and marsh towards the south, then Lake Pontchartrain. Eagle was probably flying from this swampy region near the lake?

On Saturday, December 28, 2013, I spotted a bald eagle about 50 feet south of Highway 190, a quarter of a mile East of Kinder. The eagle was in a small puddle and did not seem to mind the passing traffic. After taking several pictures, I decided to get my mother and show her. She lives in Kinder also. By the time we reached the area again the eagle was gone. But I spotted it in a nearby tree about 75 feet from the highway. It was perched midway in a large oak that stood alone in the field. The eagle was quite large.
Driving on Highway 90 near the Amelia Bridge on Dec 21 we saw an eagle soaring above.

I am an amateur birder that loves birds of prey. My family and I visited the New Orleans, Louisiana area during late November and spotted two bald eagles both of which were about half an hour away from the city. The first was a largish adult that we spotted over I-310 South driving towards Laura Plantation at around 8:45 am. The second one was an immature Bald Eagle that we saw flying over us at close proximity at Barataria National Preserve. This was around 10:00 am. The sightings were on November 29th and 30th, respectively. Having never seen any species of eagle, seeing two bald eagles in two days was amazing.
