I saw a mature bald eagle this morning while running. It was perched on a bare pine tree limb and had its wings spread. It was a beautiful bird. This confirms an earlier sighting about a month ago of a pair that flew over our house. These eagles are located in Lamar County near Lake Serene just west of Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
I was driving North on Canal Road in Gulfport, Mississippi, half way between I-10 and 28th Street when I saw a mature Bald Eagle flying west to east across Canal Road.

I just saw an eagle fly over the road in front of me. I was on HWY 45 heading south. It was roughly 5-10 miles north of Biggersville. Aren't they pretty rare to see up this way?

It was a mature and an immature together and a few yards away in another tree, there was another pair (a mature and an immature. Amazing and thrilling.

I am a police officer in the city of Raymond, MS. I was driving on patrol down Port Gibson St. when a bald eagle flew across my path and landed on a tree branch. I pulled over and observed it for a few moments but when I exited my patrol car to take a picture it flew away to the East. Huge bird. Only other one I have ever seen was in the delta several years ago.

The water is low and at first I thought it was some strange kind of goose. But when I stopped the car to take a better look the eagle took wing and soared right past me.

I was at the MS Visitor Center in Vicksburg today and saw a single Bald Eagle flying the shoreline of the Mississippi River about 15 feet above the treeline. I spotted it on the north side of the bridge and it flew into the tree line of the south side of the bridge. It’s wingspan was incredible as it glided through the air.
Three of us spotted a bald eagle at Snow Lake Shores of Benton County in Northern Mississippi on October 30th, 2014. The eagle was perched atop a tall dead tree overlooking Snow Lake's middle finger only about 250 yards from my home. I did view it with binoculars, but it flew away while I was inside preparing my long range camera lens.

I was traveling down JQ West Rd between Como and Sardis in Panola County, Mississippi when I saw a bald eagle amongst some smaller birds eating roadkill. He flew away, but came right back. I circled around and as he flew away, I snapped a decent picture. I have never seen one in the wild, and this was a real honor.
On February 8th, 2014 around 3:15 pm on my way to Meridian, MS on Hwy 45 heading northbound. The Bald Eagle was swooping down in the median on Hwy 45 about midway between Quitman and Meridian. (approx. 12 miles south of Meridian I-20/59). It appeared very large such as a female. There was another bird similar but smaller above the trees on the west side of the road about 20-30 yards in from the highway. May have been a male but I could not see well enough to the other side of the highway by the time I noticed the 2nd bird. At first glance I assumed it was a hawk as they are in great abundance in Misissippi. As we approached and drove past, it's white tail was fanned out as it was gliding full spread close to the ground westerly away from us in the direction of the other bird and you could also see it's head was white. That's when I realized it was a Bald Eagle purely by surprise. Amazing.
This was my first sighting purely by accident of a Bald Eagle in the wild. It really is an amazing beautiful bird to see in the wild.
