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!

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.

I was driving back from Sullivan on highway cc and noticed large bird having some road kill. Figured turkey vulture, nope it had white head and big fanned out white tail feathers. I was about 2 1/2 feet tall. About now today 8/31/2015 and after we passed it was already going back to finish her lunch. From research females have white tail feathers. Last time I seen bald eagle was in corn field next to bourbeouse river on highway 19 south. Really not that far from sighting today.

I spotted a adult Bald Eagle preening feathers in a large tree along Hwy 50 @ Hwy UU outside of Union, MO. What a stunningly handsome bird. This is my first in the flesh sighting. The Bald Eagle is a regal creature and I feel blessed to have seen one in person.

Think I saw a bald eagle flying east along Missouri River over the Heart of America Bridge in North Kansas City today about 9:20 AM, Tuesday, February 11th. Was surprised to see it, but know they have been up at Smithville Lake just north. Have seen them a few times before. Was surprised to see it so close to the city. Very cool.
