Christopher Barnett wrote the following: January 31, 2016: saw single eagle, older juvenile or adult, fly across corner of Brattle Street and Fresh Pond Parkway and alight in a tall pine. 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). Really spectacular to see a bird this size in town like this! Have heard of eagle sightings over the past 2 years in the I-95/Rte 2 (Cambridge reservoir) area, but this is my first.

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!

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 !!

I pulled over and the large bird swooped down towards the fog blanketed water in the middle of the pond and looked like it plucked a bird off the surface. What a sight!

First saw it above the river a bit west of Community Rowing, it circled once and we lost sight as it flew west towards the Charles River Watertown Dam in Watertown Square.

Juvenile Bald Eagle in Essex, MA. Juvenile has been hanging around our field on Bothways Farm where chickens are kept. Was seen on August 26 throughout the late afternoon and early evening swooping down. Got within 20' of him/her while he was on the ground. Had seen him previously but thought he was some kind of hawk.

Just saw a beautiful male eagle watching over an open field in my neighbor's tree. I'm in the Tyringham Valley of Lee, MA in the Berkshires. He kept a vigil for hours. I feel blessed at the sight!

Bald Eagle sighted flying over Lake Boone dam in Stow MA at 9:00 am. The Eagle circled over a flock of geese floating in the Assabet river side of the dam and then flew off behind a line of trees. What a magnificent creature!

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.
