Today, Saturday, August 29th, @ about 4pm I sighted a young adult Bald Eagle flying and gliding SW from mid-Williamston. I spotted the Eagle just as it left Williamston airspace and watched as it flew SW over I-96. What a beautiful sight!

I saw a Bald Eagle yesterday (2/15/15) flying overhead while I was snowshoeing across a field. He was flying west, from Cherry Valley Rd toward Schad Rd, in Middleville, Michigan. He looked very content to be soaring with the wind currents. Great to see.

We just saw two bald eagles on Evans Lake in Tipton, MI. They flew around and then landed on the ice. It looked like they were eating something left be ice fishermen.

I wanted to report that at about 11:30 am today (2/12/15) as I was returning to Lansing from Eagle (ironic) via Grand River Highway I encountered a large immature Bald eagle in the road. I had seen a large bird come down and land in the road to scoop up some road kill a ways ahead of me, so I slowed down to give it time to move and catch a glimpse of nature in action. I at first assumed it was a large hawk, but I could not believe my eyes when I got closer and realized what it was! This bird was MASSIVE! There was no mistaking, this was in fact a Bald Eagle! Completely blew my mind! I was speechless, such a beautiful animal to see, especially in the wild! I wish the vehicle wouldn't have scared him off, it would have been awesome to get a picture!

There were 2 bald eagles in a tree near 10 Mile & Currie Roads.
I've been bird watching for years and was very excited that I noticed these when I drove by. They were huge.
The eagles flew away when I walked closer to get a better cell phone picture.

February 2, 2015. Sighted an adult bald eagle soaring over Hall (M59) and Romeo Plank. Hall is the dividing line between Clinton Township and Macomb Township, Michigan.
Surprised to see one in this populated area, but I see another sighting listed that occurred about a month ago in the same vicinity.

A Bald Eagle soured over my property this morning about 9 a.m. Sunday January 25th. On Madden Rd. between Quigly and Oak Hill Drive. Dexter Twp. Michigan. The eagle appeared to be at about 100 feet above and perhaps a juvenile. I was struck by its unmistakable white head and tail tips but I commonly see mature Red Tail Hawks if the same size. Non the less it was a real treat to see and I hope they begin to flourish in Washtenaw County.

I was driving in Walled Lake, MI on Saturday, January, 24, 2015 when I spotted it flying low. It threw me off guard but the white head and bright yellow beak was unmistakable...I knew I just saw a bald eagle!

2015-01-13 – Caledonia, MI -- Watched two bald eagles for much of the day today feeding on a 5 or 6 pound sucker on the ice on the Thornapple River 2 miles south of Alaska, MI. Interestingly the larger immature eagle drove the adult off the fish and dined for nearly 45 minutes. These two were joined by an additional pair of adult birds who remained in the area of the fish for an hour and a half around 5 pm. There was an on and off conflict between the adult birds, so perhaps there was not a mated pair.

1-12-2015. I opened my shutters this morning at 9:40 AM to look at my view of Lake Michigan and Glenlord Beach Park. I spotted a Bald Eagle soaring over the lower parking lot of The Sable Shores Condominiums, Stevensville, MI. The wing span on this bird was tremendous. The sight was awe-inspiring.

Ann Arbor, Michigan, 3:00p.m., Saturday, January 10th...100 yards ESE of Plymouth Rd. at Huron Pkwy. Stopped to watch a Peregrine falcon, who was joined on his perch by his mate sitting in a tree right by Plymouth Rd. From the east, in swept a bald eagle, dove to the ground, and carried off his catch (perhaps a rabbit) to the east. spectacular site - wish I had pictures!

On 1/10/15 approximately 2pm, I (we) saw a Bald Eagle flying east over Long Lake in Union, MI. It flew to within about 20 yards of my huge picture window (that faces west), before turning south. I live on a hill that overlooks the lake. I was too awestruck and dumbfounded to take a picture. I actually screamed "OH MY GOD"! And my adult daughter looked over and saw it too. Had she not seen it, and confirmed it as an Eagle, I would have thought I was crazy. I can still see it flying above the tree tops south of me, on the east side of the lake. I'm HOPING it comes back so I can get a picture of it. No idea if it was male or female, nor can I guess the wingspan. I just saw a HUGE white headed and tailed bird flying towards the window and again, went into an awestruck trance! I have a TON of hawks that live on this property and perch on the trees right outside the window all the time, so initially I thought that's what it was, till it got closer.
Union, Michigan - in Cass County, Michigan. Long/Baldwin & Coverdale lake area.
