Saw a bald eagle off Highway 186 in Northampton County, NC outside of Seaboard as I was heading toward Virginia. It was beautiful. I stopped my car and he flew up in a tree and then flew across a field.
I saw two bald eagles off highway 305 right outside of Seaboard, NC in Northampton County. They were in a field then flew east up into some trees.

I saw a bald eagle today in Cary NC between Bond Lake and Prestonwood country club. it came down and landed in the middle of the street on the corner of Preston Oaks and Roebling Ln.
It looked like it picked up a dead squirrel that was on the street which I had Seen earlier!
Pretty cool to see one around here!

Spotted three eagles circling a wooded area in the vicinity of Rhine and Normandy. While walking out to my truck, I looked up behind my home and saw two of them soaring above the wooded area behind my home, looking to the north, another eagle presented itself 200 meters away, the two above my home circled north to join the third and began to circle a point 200 to 300 meters northwest of my observation point in a three teared pattern.
Observed at 12:10 on 9 JAN 2015

It was about 10am Tuesday (01/06/15) as we were headed towards Spring Hope, North Carolina on Stallings rd. within a mile or 2 of Lake Royale (on the border of Franklin and Nash counties). We were traveling towards our home when a huge bird soars from the top of a tree close to the road with a white head and white tail feathers. It crossed the direction we were driving so we got an incredible look at it. I could not take a picture in time though. There was no traffic so my husband drove very slowly as we watched the bird soar over a pond until it was out of sight. I could not believe there was a bald eagle so close to my house. I'm so glad my husband was there to witness this majestic creature with me.

Seen this bird first on 12/21/2014 off Tabernacle Church Rd in Randolph County, NC eating a deer that was in a field (road kill or hunters bad shot). Seen bird next 3 days in same field even though carcass was no longer there. There is the Uwharrie River maybe 1 mile from where I seen the bid. The water level on river is very shallow, I strongly feel as if it has actually been still for well over a month. Maybe this bird was hungry and came in from Uwharrie National Forest to hunt and scavenge.

Spotted one on Hwy 52 between Ansonville and Albermarle. There was a wood sided restaurant on the side of the road and it flew from the parking lot into the trees across the street. Ive never seen one in the wild so we turned aronud and he flew again in into a tree behind the building. He just sat there perched as we watched. The bird was so majestic. It sat in thr tree like a king (or queen). Unbelievable experience for my wife and I, our two kids and my nephew.
