I saw a bald eagle this morning on the way to work on Mast Rd north of Dexter, Michigan just south of North Territorial Rd. The eagle was perched at the top of a tree next to the road. Since the trees have lost many of their leaves, it was easy to see. From a distance I thought it was a vulture because of the size, but as I drove past it, it clearly had a white hawk-like head.

It was still there and we zoomed in and watched it for 5-10 minutes. Absolutely gorgeous!

One lone bald eagle feeding in a field at the side of the road, about 3
miles south of the town of Deerfield, MI in Lenawee County on Sept. 15,
2013. He must have been only about 25 -30 feet from the road and he stayed
there the entire 3 to 5 minutes I was observing him. Amazing.
We live in Cadillac Mi, on Lake Mitchell. We have been watching a pair of Bald eagles for a few years.

I have enjoyed at least once to twice a week the privilege of the pair of eagles soaring over our house landing in white pine trees near us and taking pictures.

I sighted a Bald eagle in Tekonsha Michigan around 2 pm on August 15th. I was just 1/2 mile north of Tekonsha when the eagle flew in front of my car and landed in a tree. I stopped so my kids and wife could see it. I was able to get a few photos but only after he took to the air again. This was my 3rd sighting since February 2013 all within 10 miles of Union City Michigan.

I was standing on the snow/ice pileups on the shoreline of Lake Michigan when I saw what looked to be a large bird standing on a cluster of icebergs a few hundred meters directly in front of me. After a few minutes in flew further into the lake near very large grouping of other birds (which were too far away too tell what they were). At the time, I didn't know it was a bald eagle. I took a picture of it with my camera (which has a 42x optical zoom, about 1000mm) and when I got home, finally pulled it up on my computer and realized that it was a bald eagle.

It was very large and it was just sitting there. I've seen many bald eagles from the train going over the Mississippi in Burlington, Iowa, but I've never seen one in Michigan. It was very exciting. I'll keep my eyes alert for the next one.

We live in Lowell, MI along the Flat River. We've been here a year and a half and see two routinely. One is an adult with the white head, the other I'm assuming is younger as it's head is still brown. Usually we see them along Flat River Dr, or flying above the river, a lot of times the one with the white head is in a tree across the River. Today they flew over the river and landed in separate trees maybe 20 yards from our house. We've never seen them that close up, they're beautiful! We hope they continue to stick around.
Today in Branch county Michigan. Between Coldwater and Union City.

Paul & Marilyn Wilkie
December 29, 2012 I was fortunate enough to observe a Bald Eagle hunt for a few hours in the late morning over the northwest swamp and open water area of Reeds Lake in East Grand Rapids, Michigan.

I saw an immature bald eagle at very close range yesterday, in Taylor. MI. I went to let my housecat in from the backyard, and the cat was agitated and looking skyward. I went outside and followed the cat's gaze to the top of a telephone pole in my next door neighbor's yard, and there sat a very large, juvenile bald eagle, staring at the cat. It was mottled dark brown in color, with white flecks distributed on it's underbody. I watched it for approximately a minute, until it took flight. It had a very large wingspan (3-4 ft.) and a heavy body. It had a heavy, hooked beak.
Highland Twp., Oakland County, Michigan
December 15, 2012 10:45 a.m.
Just saw a bald eagle perched on top of a (leafless) tree by our lake - Upper Pettibone Lake, off Harvey Lake Road in Highland. Magnificent! Viewed with binoculars, and tried to take a picture from inside the house poor quality. My husband went out side about 50' down property - and although eagle was still roughly 150' away, he didn't like my husband's movement, and flew away. His strength and beauty was breathtaking!
While out walking on a beautiful, unseasonably warm December 14th, 2012 afternoon, we were treated to a pair of bald eagles!!! We were 3 miles north of the Kalamazoo River, near the Gull Creek, in Galesburg, Michigan. They started out in a tree fairly close to the road, and after we stopped, one flew a few hundred yards back into an open field area (landed in a tree), and shortly thereafter, the other took off. We continued to watch them as they sat pretty much side by side.....what a beautiful sight!

Today is November 25th 2012. We live in Capac Michigan 48014. Today was our first snowfall of the year so we took a slow ride on our 4 wheeler through our woods just west of town. We saw lots of tracks from deer, squirrels and rabbits but then noticed a new bird being chased by a lot of small birds. Our normal Red tail is easy to spot but this one was very dark. When he flew across the property heading west his bright white head was perfect! He dove down through the field next door before disappearing. We have lived here for 26 years and watch birds a lot. This was the first American Bald Eagle I have seen here. What a treat for Thanksgiving weekend!
An amazing Thanksgiving Day sighting! My husband and I saw a bald eagle today, late morning, near Maple Beach in Kensington Metro Park in Milford, Michigan.

I've never seen a Bald Eagle in our area and was amazed and thankful to be able to watch this beautiful creature of God!

Oct. 14, 2012 around 3:30 p.m. Ann Arbor. Driving north on Dixboro road, we were on the bridge passing over the Huron River when a mature bald eagle flew in front of us at the tree line. I caught sight of the white head and then both the head and tail as it banked to the right! I've been in AA for 17 yrs. and this is the first bald eagle I've seen here. Amazing! If not for my husband's desire to get home for the start of the Tigers' game, I would have turned around to watch it's journey!

We have what appear to be a group of four immature Bald Eagles in the area of Farmington Hills, Michigan. They have been sighted soaring and hunting aournd our immediate area for the past three days or so. They were last seen today at noon aound the same area. Two of them perched for a while on top of one of the cellular towers around the Farmington road / 12 mile area.

Lone Bald Eagle sighted soaring above our house in Belmont, MI. 49306. We watched it soar at about 3-5 hundred feet in fairly tight circles for more than 5 minutes before its widening pattern moved further west and finally, out of sight. We have watched many Bald Eagles but never this close to a city the size of Grand Rapids, MI which is situated less than 5 miles south of Belmont. This sighting was positively identified as a Bald Eagle but so far unconfirmed by others.
A beutiful bald eagle was perced in a tree on Sonoma Lake in East Leroy Michigan last fall. This past week, another Eagle was on the ice eating fish that had been left behind. This one resembled the Golden Eagle as it did not have a white head.
Numerous Bald Eagles have been hanging out at the mouth of Saginaw Bay near Bay Harbou
marina. A man my husband talked to saw 22 one evening last week.
Mrs. David Charlesbois
February 5, 2012....saw a bald eagle flying over Gray Lake in Lake, MI (Clare County). This is the first time I've seen one in the wild and it was quite a thrill. Of course I couldn't find my camera fast enough to get a picture!
I was driving for work up to Ludington, MI on 1-30-12 and saw a bald eagle sitting on the metal railing as I crossed the Pete Marquette River on 31 just south of Ludington. He flew up and circled and then soared to the other side and sat in a tree and then got up and circled again. When I went back down 31 I saw him again soar from the east side to the west side.
I am not sure if I witnessed 3 or not, one was on the ground over what looked like dead deer carcase, I dove by and was so stunted that I kept on driving, a couple miles down the road I turned around and returned as I pulled up he or she flew up to a tree about 300 yards off but originally it was only 30 yards away, It stayed it the tree for about 20 minutes, then off about 100 yard I saw another one, this one was just about all dark, the one that was on the ground had a white head and tail feathers, as I listened, the one some distance away was "chirping" the adult flew over to where that one was. Then another one all dark flew by then soared off into the distance. This happened in Lowell Michigan on a street called Flat River Dr. on the curve before Flat River Ct. What a tremendous sight I never witnessed one let alone 3 in the wild.
On January 28, 2012 my husband and I were shoveling snow. It was very windy. I looked at the sky and saw a bald eagle flying. We couldn't believe it! This was the first eagle we ever saw! At first we thought it was some type of hawk, but as it flew closer and past us we were able to see the white head and tail as it displayed a "soaring" flight pattern. It was amazing!
Sterling Heights, Michigan
I live in Saline 48176, just south of Ann Arbor. On Saturday the 27th my son and I saw what we thought was a large hawk circling near our house. As we got closer we realized it was a Bald Eagle. He was flying directly south.
1-25-12. I have been driving for a limo company for 11 years,going only from Toledo to Detroit Metro airport. My route is up I-75 through Monroe Michigan. I am always scanning the trees quickly to see the red-tailed hawks out there(which are plentiful). I suddenly see this eagle in the tree. It was quite a shock to me. I had never seen one in the wild. I pointed it out to my guests on the car. One guest was from Minnesota,confirmed that it was an eagle,and said she sees them quite often in her area. It was high up in a tree near exit 13. There are many small lakes around,and it was not far from Lake Erie. I know they eat fish,so he was in a great location for food. It would be nice to see more of these,and I consider myself very lucky to see one in it's natural habitat!
On Thursday, January 26, 2012 I was traveling east on Territorial Road in Hillsdale Co, MI. approximately 1 mile east of SR 49, a Bald Eagle on the ground apparently feeding on a dead deer carcass.. The bird was approximately 50 yards off of the road.
Richard Unger, Coldwater, MI
My fiancé and I were coming home from an awesome weekend wine tasting and shopping with friends in Traverse City. We wanted to leave our friends house by noon, but ended up staying until after 1:00. We were traveling East on M113 through a light snow, when all of a sudden out of a field flew a massive bird. He went right over the car and we both looked at each other and said, "WoW...That was a bald eagle!" We couldn't stop smiling. Glad we left so late! It was very cool and definitely the best part of the weekend!
Jamey Perhogan and Colin
appears to be single adult bald eagle around the lakeview airport in Michigan. Haven't seen two together but one has been spotted 4 or 5 times within the last month. area is Lakeview Michigan 48850.
St Clair, MI (north end)
Pulling out of my driveway, heading North on our road (one black from the St Clair River) was what I believe was a soaring Bald Eagle chasing a few small birds. He landed in a tree. At first we thought it was a hawk, but then we realized it was so dark and had a white head and tail. It was amazing!! We have the Alice W. Moore Woods Nature Sanctuary right off our street, so we have a lot of birds and other small animal sightings. If this was what we thought it was, it was a gift.

12:44pm 1/6/12, Plymouth Township, MI. On my way back from the mailbox saw what I thought was a hawk (we have several red-tailed here) thinking to myself, "Wow! That one is huge! Look at that wing span!" Then it banked and saw the white tail.... it banked again and saw the white head. I couldn't believe it! I wanted to get binoculars to make sure but I couldn't take my eyes off this magnificent creature. It really was unmistakable, we always see them Up North in Sleeping Bear Dunes area, my brain just couldn't reconcile seeing one in my front yard! It was soaring and circling over our subdivision which is right next to Plymouth Township Park. Headed toward the park and out of view. I REALLY hope I see it again. WOW!
January 5, 2012

Jan 5, 2012
Today, less than 50 yards from the lakeside deck of a home for sale on Birch Lake in Southwest Michigan. My wife and I watched for 20 minutes while a mature bald eagle repeatedly tried to snatch an injured duck out of the lake. The duck dove underwater with each attempt at its life. The eagle eventually tired and retreated to a nearby tree top to rest, gather strength, and undoubtedly try again. My wife had her Nikon camera w giant zoom lens in the car and snapped 100 breathtaking photos. Great Day
I was taking a walk along a wooded path that circles a large pond in our development. As I stopped to look out at the pond (facing east), a large bird flew overhead from the west. Thinking it was a waterfowl, I thought to myself 'where is it going to land?' since the pond was almost completely frozen over. Then I noticed the stark white tail and watched as it perched high in a tree on the other side of the pond. I knew it had to be a bald eagle. I continued to walk around the pond to get a better look and ensure that there was a white head to go along with the white tail. Sure enough, a beautiful bald eagle. I live in Brighton, Michigan and was amazed that a bald eagle would be that far south. I remember the summers of the 1970's when as a child, my family would vacation in the Upper Peninsula and spend days driving around Seney National Wildlife Refuge Park hoping to catch a glimpse of a bald eagle!
Saw a mature bald eagle around lunch time in East Grand Rapids right around and over Reeds Lake!
