Our property actually is adjacent to the Fishing River and we see the eagles flying over the river area, then our pasture, the adjoining soybean & corn farm fields. It's an almost daily occurrence now. I am trying to get their time frames down, so I can then photograph them like I do our other birds that call our property home. We have such a vast variety of larger birds in our area. (Great horned owls, barn owls, hawks & all kinds of the smaller birds too.)

D. Marie Gray wrote the following: Bald Eagle sighting, Sunday, October 4, 2015, Kansas City, Clay County, Missouri near Barry Road and 152 Hwy (Maple Woods Community College area), 4:30 p.m. Somewhat secluded road on what was farmland, but new housing is under construction and the wooded areas are unfortunately being bulldozed. This beautiful creature had swooped to pick up fresh roadkill (squirrel). We had noticed the roadkill on the way to our destination and when returning down the same road approximately 30 minutes later the Eagle was on the ground, grabbed the squirrel in his talons and took flight before we could capture a picture - simply amazing!
James Chapin wrote the following: Sept 27, 2015, Ellisville, Mo, saw a Bald Eagle circling very low over Clarkson Rd in front of Daniel Boone Library. By low, he was just above tree level so maybe 50-60 feet. Then he flew over to a tree on the east side of Clarkson Rd just north of the office buildings. After 5 minutes of sitting on a branch, he flew east in the trees and was gone.
