I saw a Bald Eagle 2/2/14 at Manchester Reservoir in Attleboro .
I live in Saugus, MA and today, January 24, 2014, as I was driving I spotted a large bird flying along-side my car at a low altitude. Upon closer look, it was a bald eagle! He had a white head and tail feathers and a large wing span! I followed him in my car for a few hundred feet and when I pulled over to get a better look, he must have landed in a tree because I couldn't find him anymore. I was traveling west on Main Street in Saugus, which runs parallel to the marsh, and he was flying low over the marsh. What a wonderful and surprising experience it was .... I was awe-struck! I called the Audubon Society and they confirmed that what I saw was, in fact, an eagle. Didn't know there were any around these parts so it was quite an awesome moment!=
Spotted a bald eagle on Big West Pond in Plymouth, MA January 23rd, 2014. It ate a duck on the ice!

Caught me off guard during my commute, so I wanted to pass along a sighting of a mature bald eagle circling above the Charles River/Stony Brook Reservoir area Tuesday morning (1/7/14) around 8:30AM – just off Route 128N. What really drove me to report the sighting is that I just saw one (unsure if same bird or other adult) this afternoon around 12:30PM riding thermals above the Hobbs Brook Basin area north of Trapelo Road in Waltham/Lexington area. Great to see them back in Eastern MA!!

So glad to see them in this area.

I live in Lowell, Massachusetts. My home faces the Merrimack River at Lower Hunt’s Falls. This morning, October 9th, there was an eagle resting on a rock right before my awestruck eyes. The eagle sat there for a half an hour.
It was a beautiful autumn morning made more beautiful by the eagle siting.

Saw a mature Bald Eagle on 9/14/2013 at Beaver Pond in Franklin Ma. It came in and snagged a fish and flew into a tree at the other end of the pond. A beautiful site seen by a number of people fishing; to actually see one catch a fish just added to the sighting.
9/10/13 Hunts Falls Bridge on Nesmith St. Lowell MA crossing the Merrimack River just downstream of where the Concord river joins the Merrimack River. This is the second time I have seen a bald eagle here, flying around near the bridge. I had seen one late in 2012 or early 2013, also.

The Linares Marino family
Westfield, Ma (Hampton Ponds) Spotted a male and a female sitting on the same branch two days ago (Feb 26th 2013) have seen them everyday since but not together. What a nice addition to our local wildlife, I hope they stay. Not sure what they are eating the lake is still frozen over, but then again I have noticed that the squirrel population is down.=
Natick Massachusetts, I have been seeing two eagles flying over Kansas St in Natick near the Lake.

1/24/2013, Lowell, MA
Today around noon I saw two bald eagles circling over Rte. 495 north
in Lowell where 495 crosses the Concord River and the wetlands around it.
Unmistakable with their white heads and white bands on their tails in

around 12 degrees at best.

My wife - who knows her raptors - just saw a bald eagle this morning (Friday, Jan. 4, 2013) at 10:45am over the Forest Hills area of Jamaica Plain in Boston. She had time to watch it circle, identify it, take a photo (smartphone only, not a great one), and utter many breathless, joyful exclamations to me on the phone. The last time we saw any was off the coast of Vancouver, so this is pretty exciting!
A Bald Eagle flew low over our car at the intersection of Speen and 135 in Natick,MA. The kids were so excited. Awesome site to see!
Today I spotted 2 American Bald Eagles on the banks of the Merrimack River in Haverhill, MA. I assume they were male and female, as my research suggests both sexes are the same in plumage but not in size.
In my 43 years, this is my first sighting and I am blown away that I should see two. They flew, roosted and then flew again, one following the other. It was magnificient. I'm hooked.

12/27/12 1:00 pm. Thursday.
My son and I were out shoveling when I looked up and saw a bald eagle flying just above us! It flew low over the house, did a slight curve back around and then flew off. This was our first sighting ever!! Very exciting.

Young eagle spotted near long pond in Dracut, MA. Awesome thing to see.
I was driving down rt. 67 in Warren, Massachusetts, in a woodsy area next to the train tracks, and a bald eagle flew close over my car. I could see it clear as day that it was a bald eagle. I have never seen one before. I know Quaboag river runs along 67 in that area. Pretty awesome!
I spotted a juvenile bald eagle soar over my roof two days ago. Yesterday, I saw what I thought was the same land in my neighbor's tree. This morning, there were FIVE perched high in our tree and our neighbor's tree! Absolutely amazing sight my family and I experienced!
My wife and I were kayaking on Goose Pond, Becket, MA this morning. At about 9 am we saw a Bald Eagle fly by and land in a tree. We immediately kayaked over to it and I was able to get off a few shots before it took off. Goose Pond has two separate areas, Upper and Lower. He was on the North end of the lower pond and took flight over the channel that connects the two bodies. We went through the channel and searched all around the Upper area until we came upon him about an hour later. He took off from a tree we had kayaked right to but did not see him until he took off. Most exhilarating!
I saw a bald eagle on my way to work yesterday afternoon. It was about 3:30 PM and I was traveling on route 128 in Waltham Massachusetts. It swooped down over the reservoir very close to the water. I don't know enough about them to guess as to whether he was juvenile or adult. But I do know that he was enormous and so majestic...what a terrific sight.
Today, February 18th, 2012, I saw a Bald Eagle on the Lower Mill Pond, Easthampton, MA. I stood and watched it for nearly 5 minutes as stood on a patch of ice in the middle of the pond. Finally it took flight, majestic and beautiful, large, yet graceful. What an amazing experience.
Feb. 17, 2012, 8:16AM. Mature bald eagle at Capron's Pond In Uxbridge, MA (~5 ac. impounded pond along Mumford River immed. N of Rte. 16) Unmistakable!!! Watched it circle twice & plunge for a fish - came up empty - before it flew on to the North.

I was driving on Rt.107 in Lynn Massachusetts aroubnd the intersection
of Chesnut St. I saw a circling birds being harassed by seagulls. I
pulled over to To watch. I was amazed when I saw the white head and
tail. After 5 minutes or so, I lost the birds in trees and houses.

I just wanted to let you know that I am fairly certain I saw a bald eagle at Capron's Pond in Uxbridge, MA today. I was walking my dog in my backyard (North Main St), and there was a very large bird with a white head and tail flying out over the pond. I watched him for about 5 minutes, he was circling and eventually I lost sight of him as he flew north.
I saw a bald eagle at around 2PM today, at Nagog Pond, in Acton, MA. It was hunting for fish. The pond is mostly covered with ice. The eagle perched in a tree, then flew toward open water, turned around, went back to the tree, then took another pass along the open water. It then few from the north side of the pond to the south side. The sun illuminated the tail feathers & it was a magnificent site.

Definate sighting at lowell holly reservation mashpee ma.
Immature Bald Eagle sighted near Tyngsboro Elementary School, Tyngsboro, Ma on 10/6/11. It was on a side road eating the remains of a squirrel. I startled the bird when I drove around the corner where it was feeding and it flew off. On my return trip a couple of minutes later I very slowly drove to the corner I had seen the bird. It had come back to feed on the squirrel so I stopped and watched from a bit of a distance. Stayed and watched the bird feed until it was scared away by another vehicle. Highlight of my day.
Mr DONALD AUGUSTUS
Westminster, Mass. -- At 9:05 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011, bald eagle cruising north to south over Route 2 by Westminster/Gardner town line. I have seen this same [?] individual three times in the last two weeks, on the north side of Wachusett Mountain, flying over Wyman Lake on the same north/south flight path, all around mid-day.
Marie Auger, Westminster
pretty sure one flew over me on the highway (195 W) very near North Wattupa pond, Westport / Fall River line. Huge wings, white head ... amazing

11-26-11 Lynnfield MA. I am Happy to report I spent the last hour watching two adult bald eagles sitting on branches of two trees about fifty feet apart at the edge of Suntaug Lake in Lynnfield, MA. They enjoyed cleaning their feathers and looking out over the reservoir on a gorgeous sunny day with temperatures that will rise to 60 degrees today. We saw one of them on the exact same branch a week ago and a neighbor saw one in their trees a few weeks ago. We have lived here for three years and these are our first is things. Just amazing. We have never seen them in the wild and to see them in our backyard is incredible.
Patrick and Erin Curley
11/19/11 Ayer, MA, about 8:45 AM. I saw a bald eagle fly from Flannagan Pond over Central Ave. It caught me by surprise. When I first saw the large bird I assumed it was a blue heron, but as it flew closer it was clearly a bald eagle. I was aware there was a bald eagle in town after a friend took a photo of one in a tree on Washington St. almost one year ago (1/4/11).
I was playing golf at Cyprian Keyes golf course in Boylston Ma on November 18 2011. A very large bald eagle was circling above us as we looked up in amazement. First time I have seen an eagle in central Mass.
11/9/11 Agawam, MA, about 1:00 PM: I spotted a bald eagle flying around to my left as I was nearing the end of Route 57 in Agawam, about a mile from Route 91. I pulled over to watch it for a few minutes, to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me: no, there was no mistaking the white head and white tail on a dark body! I looked at my GPS to see what body of water lies in that direction, as I know they live and hunt near water. It appears that there is a swampy area a quarter mile or less north of Route 57, and about a half mile north lies the Westfield River. This was my third bald eagle sighting in two years, but this one was a shock to me, being so close to the city of Springfield. I love that these birds are making a comeback in Massachusetts!
I spotted a Bald Eagle doing circles over Medford St, in Arlington, MA
over Mystic Lake going towards Winchester. It was 2:30pm on 10/31/11.
A fellow walker and I both noticed the distinct white head and tail
of the large bird.
11/25/2011 Saw at least 3 eagles over Pleasant View, North Fall River
MA. I was surprised to see two eagles (I assume male/female, one larger
than the other) soaring over the homes in the area. I could clearly see
a third much higher up. I could see all three birds simultaneously, so
there's no chance of having seen one bird twice at different altitudes.
At the same time, I saw what appeared to be a hawk being harassed by a
flock of crows. This bird was smaller than the two low flying eagles I'd
seen, although it may have been a juvenile.
10/22/11, about 11-11:30 am, over Saugus Iron Works in Saugus
Massachusetts, spotted one bald eagle, headed up the river towards
Lynn/Mill Pond (I think. Definitely heading against flow of the river.)
This is the second eagle I've seen in the wild, but only ID'd it
positively when I looked back over the pictures I had taken. I didn't
know of any common local birds that were that *massive,* so I suspected
it could be some sort of eagle, but it's not really the type of bird one
expects to see... here, anyway.
It was approximately 11:15 a.m. on the morning of October 17, 2011, I was stepping out of my home, when this magnificent eagle swept over my head and landed on a branch of a tree overhead. It then flew over my home and was joined by another eagle and flew to and landed on top of two pine trees nearby; one on each tree. One of them flew back and circled over my home. I was able to view it soaring through binoculars. I have never seen an eagle in person before. It was a most spiritual experience.
Saw a Bald Eagle at River Bend Farm in Uxbridge,Ma.It was perched in the tall pines along the Blackstone Canal.Very exciting as this was only the second time in my 58 yrs. that I've seen one!
Wachusett Mountain, Princeton, MA Sunday, September 18, 2011 about 6:00pm
We witnessed a bald eagle flying in over the pond used by Wachusett Mountain as a water source for snowmaking. It flew in, swooped down and grasped a fish out of the pond and they flew off over the treetops. Very cool, and my first bald eagle sighting in the wild!
Observed two bald eagles while kayaking @ Hampton Ponds, Westfield, MA on 09/11/2011. Only a few minutes after launching one swooped down at about 20 feet and settled in a tall pine tree. I moved in closer to get pictures with my cell phone camera ( of all the days to forget my Nikon) and saw a second eagle circling high above. Didn't really think about the 9/11 date and our national symbol until later on, but the sighting did make for a memorable day.
Saw a bald eagle in Fitchburg yesterday, 9/10/11 around 4:15pm. It was
soaring over the Nashua River watershed and headed west. Simply amazing!
I am excited to report a Bald Eagle sighting in Leominster MA. It was Saturday 09/04/11 around supper time. It circled the area for about half an hour before it soared almost too high to see then disappeared. I am hoping to see it again.
I wanted to share my sighting of a Bald Eagle in Uxbridge, MA. The Eagle was tree perched overlooking the Blackstone River, near Tri River. It flew to an ice float and drag a dead carcass up onto the ice and started to eat. It didn't seem to care much that I stood just up the bank, snapping a few pics. I watched the eagle for about 35min before it flew off for the near by trees. Do to shape and size, I believe it was a female.
Today was such a thrill. my 1st up close sighting of a bald eagle! I was able to watch him perch in several different trees, in flight several times and once sitting on ice at edge of open water!
While talking to some people who stopped at edge of road it seems he has been sighted here for the last week!
sighting in uxbridge ma at rice pond
This morning (Feb 10, 2011) about 11:00 AM I saw, to my delight, a mature Bald Eagle circling over the parking lot in front of my office at 85 River St, Waltham. The local gulls were quite upset and flustered as the eagle circled 3 times and then headed straight for the Charles River dam area along Moody St. Must be some good fishing over there!
We saw a Bald Eagle this afternoon at Pope's Landing in Danvers, MA. The eagle was on the frozen Danvers River trying to pull a dead seagull out of the ice. He or she was very determined but unsuccessful.
My daughter and I were driving across the Charles River in Millis, MA today (January 31, 2011) at 5PM and my daughter spotted a bald eagle flying around the river. It was amazing! I've never been so glad for a red light!
My first time seeing a bald eagle. Driving over the bridge on 495 (Massachusetts) between Ward Hill and 213 Methuen. Flying over the bridge landing in trees near the river. Saw him twice in the same week! Amazing!

Northampton MA. Driving on 91 North, Saw Bald Eagle soaring over the
river near smokestack. Was the sighting of my life!
I live in Methuen, on the Merrimack River, and there is a pair of Bald Eagles who have been coming back to the same branch on the same tree for a week now! They sit and "talk" to each other for a couple of hours, then take off for parts unknown. They come back to this spot in the late afternoon every day.
Just wanted to share with you our sighting of two Bald Eagles seen in Halifax Ma sitting on the ice of the Twin Ponds today Jan.
1/15/11 – I was looking out a fourth floor window onto the Bentley University quadrangle when a magnificent bald eagle soared right by me at eye level! Unbelievably wonderful to be so close – MaryAnn Byrnes
Thursday January 6, 2011
A bald eagle is sitting at the edge of an unfrozen section (middle) of Phoenix Pond in Shirley, MA. My co-workers and I are watching it eat something (presumably a fish) from our office building in Phoenix Park. This is the 1st time I have seen one in the wild. Very cool.
Heidi M. Resca
I'm still stunned ... I was driving very near to the Mall at Whitney Field on Hawes St. in Leominster yesterday around 10:00 AM, and an American Bald Eagle swooped in front of me, about 10 feet above my car, then landed in a tree right next to the road.
You have no idea how badly I wanted to get a photo, especially when he landed so close by ... but I was in moving traffic, lucky I didn't have an accident just from being startled.
I've never seen one 'in the wild' before, except through binoculars. It was enormous, regal, and absolutely awe-inspiring!
