Saw mature bald eagle fly over and then land on Lake Sabbatia in Taunton, Mass this afternoon (Feb 4, 2015) approximately 1-2pm. It landed on the ice for about 5 minutes but a tree was blocking any good photo shots (sigh), then flew towards Bay Street where there is still some open water. Awesome!!! Going to keep an eye out for any return visits.

Male Bald Eagle sighted today in Newton; at 2/3/2015 at 2 :15 PM, he landed on a tree branch across from the Charles River just south of Community Rowing. After a few minutes of scouting he took off downriver towards Boston. The family who lives on Chalresbank Road has sighted a Bald Eagle in the same tree on two other occasions over the last few months.

I saw a Bald Eagle in Taunton, Ma 1/31/2015 on Bay Street. I was driving by the lake and saw a big bird, so I slowed down and it landed on a branch as I drove by. I had a excellent view of it perched there. I have never seen on before. Very cool.

We saw a bald eagle flying on 1/23 in Hingham by the marsh on Rockland St. Initially it was flying w/in 20 feet of the car then soared upward and onward. My daughter spotted it and I figured she mistaken but no mistaking it with it's large size and white head. It was amazing! We followed it on Kilby St where we lost it. It appeared to be heading Foundry Pond area. Hope to see it again.

I saw 2 bald eagles flying over 128 around the Waltham area on Dec 4th, 2014 in the afternoon. I am writing this on Dec 8th so I can't remember all the details. But they were adults and absolutely beautiful soaring so close to us all driving down 128.

We see lots of hawks here on a daily basis, but have never seen a bald eagle before. Very exciting.

William Petersen
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!=
Susan Logrippo
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!!

Beautiful bird, was sunbathing on a perch on one o the last warm days of fall, allowed us to get close enough to snap some amazing pics before he gave us a show of his graceful flying ability. So glad to see them in this area.

Lowell Massachusetts: Today, October 10, 2013, two eagles flying west over the Hunt's Falls at 7:30AM. This is the second day for a siting at the same time of day.

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.

I was walking my dog this morning and saw a bald eagle flying along the Miller's River. This is the first one I have seen in Massachusetts (I see them all the time at the pond near my parent's house in Maine).
Mary Martorella
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.
John Prilipp
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.

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.=

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 the bright sun. A very cold day for them to hunt with the temperature around 12 degrees at best.

Sue Prakken
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!
Matt Laurence
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!
Jennifer MacDonald
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.

Young eagle spotted near long pond in Dracut, MA. Awesome thing to see.
Timothy Johnson
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!
Jessica Strange
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!
Karen Stella
Leominster, MA
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!
Steve Tocci
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.
C. Ryan
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.

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.
-Melissa Haskell

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.

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.
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).
Bradley Johnson
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.
John Gurlitz
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!
Erica Art
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.
Sara Perkins
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.
Michael Tredeau
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.
Kristin Shoemaker
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.

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!

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!

Easthampton, Massachusetts - a bald eagle, at a very low altitude, flew by my driveway on Main Street (Route 10) at around 2 pm. I live very close to Mount Tom, but this is the first time I have seen a bald eagle here. How exciting!

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. Linda Poirier

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

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.

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!
