Late this afternoon, my husband and I saw a bald eagle circling over the Auburndale section of Newton, Massachusetts, less than a half mile from the Charles River. The very white head and neck, as well as white tail feathers, were unmistakable.

River side of Merrimack Street.
Saw a bald eagle flying over the parking lot and river at 280 Merrimack Street. It was cool. Hopefully it'll scare away the seagulls.

A large bird flew over our backyard on Saturday 10/07/17 and we kept it in eye sight until it landed in a tree at the end of the street. Grabbed a camera with zoom lens, took a few pictures, and saw the distinct white feathers on the head and neck. Truly an impressive animal and surprised to see it in our neighborhood. Location within two miles of the Merrimack River in North Andover MA.

Ken Weller wrote the following: I saw a bald eagle in Haverhill, Massachusetts on February 15, 2017, about 6:50AM. While I was walking on High Street, it flew almost directly overhead, not more than forty feet up. It was so close I could see it's eyes, talons and individual feathers. This was a fully mature bird, very stout with a wingspan likely well over six feet. Spectacular!!

Amazing to see one so close to the city of Boston near a river that's connected to saltwater.

He disappeared as I went for my camera, but a few minutes later I saw him fly upstream, going out of sight beyond the bridge.

Lori Blake wrote the following: I am truly fortunate to have seen a bald eagle, as have others in our town mostly observed around the Monponsett lake in HALIFAX, MA. While our lake is in dire straits from the misuse and continuous damming of a neighboring town illegally taking our precious water supply, these beautiful and majestic birds have somehow thrived. It is a great privilege to observe these amazing birds.

The eagle lept out of the tree and circled the zoo a few times. I think it was visiting the hurt eagles that were in a cage outside. I was trying to show my son and he said ya I just saw it in the cage. I said no there is one flying around in the wild. About a dozen people witnessed this with me.

I pulled over and tried to take a pic but was not quick enough.. However i did hang around for 15 minutes to see if it came back and it did. This time it came from behind me, over my head and heading out over the lake and met up with another large bird that looked similar to it (i was unsure if this bird was also a bald eagle because they had flown to far by this point).

Bird few off again 5 minutes later, dropping to 20 ft off the ground before flying off towards Charles River (some 500 yds from this spot).

Judi Galvin wrote the following: We saw a gorgeous pair of bald eagles flying over Atherton Hough School in Houghs Neck MA at approximately 2:15 this afternoon (2/11/16). The children were out in the school yard and were able to witness this rare and magical sighting. This seaside community is home to several different types of birds of prey and it is fairly common to see osprey - whose nesting platforms are built and maintained by Boy Scout Troop 6 - as well as red tail hawks and turkey vultures. What a breathtaking and awe inspiring moment to see not only one bald eagle but two flying overhead!

Christene Sokol wrote the following: FALL RIVER 2/11/16: North Watuppa Pond- little peninsula that juts out just past the on ramp of 24N coming off of 195W. My sons and I have had the privilege of sightings for the past couple of years, usually in the morning on our way to school. I have even been know to doubled back a few times, despite my kids being marked tardy so we can get another glimpse (because there is no safe place to pull over or access this location ..even by foot. These birds are very shrewd as this body of water is our drinking reservoir and has very restricted access.) Today he/she was basking in the sun at the top of an old pine tree. On Dec 23rd we spotted 2 bald eagles for the first and only time. It is a little miracle when I see them, makes our whole day special.

The bird was perched on a dead tree in a body of water right next to highway between exits 10 and 11 (Kingston area). I'm only an amateur but it had to be a bald eagle! So exciting to see and coincidentally had just read an article in the Patriot Ledger about these birds growing in population. Super start to my day!

Dennis Bottcher wrote the following: We live on Cedar Lake, Sturbridge, MA. and we have been watching a pair of Bald eagles all summer long. Yesterday Jan.1st I was looking out of my glass door watching these Bald eagles, one of them swooped down and flew away with a fish, and the other one started attacking a duck, diving into the water trying to get the duck but the duck kept diving under the water every time the eagle came close. After about 15 minutes of that the eagle perched in a tree across the lake and the duck was definately stunned swimming in circles and finally swimming off. I am almost sure that this pair of Eagles are here to stay ! I hope !!
