David Nowak wrote the following: On November 23, 2015 at 8:45am Northern Washtenaw County Michigan. My wife and I observed an Eagle trying to snatch one of several diving ducks on our lake. Having a place on Drummond Island we are very familiar with eagles. This was either a young Bald Eagle or a Golden Eagle. After about a dozen try's it had no luck in snatching a duck which leads me to believe it was an inexperienced young bald eagle. After living here for close to forty years this is a first.

Diane Schlanser wrote the following: Spotted a Bald Eagle flying west over Blue Star Highway in South Haven Just south of the Black River. He headed sw towards Lake Michigan. This was about 4:30 pm. No doubt. I have never seen one I could positively identify since moving back from out west. Ooo yes in Iowa in the winter when they gather for open water and fishing.

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.

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.

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.
