John Rickards wrote the following: I was driving on NJ Rt563 East off of Rt72 towards Chatsworth on Dec 9th, 2015 at 8:15am. I was amazed to see a very large fully mature Bald Eagle feeding on carrion at the side of the road. As I approached, it literally jumped 5 ft. in the air before spreading it's wings and perched in a nearby pine. I was also amazed at it's size, realizing now it may have been almost twice the size of the Eagle I saw shortly after on TV biting Donald Trump! It's color and condition seemed to be perfect, but again I had NEVER seen a wild Eagle that close.

Miriam Muse wrote the following: Spotted a mature bald eagle perched atop a tall tree branch on Union Valley Road in West Milford, New Jersey, on November 25th., 2015. The location was approx. 1 mile before the Shop Rite shopping center, on left hand side, coming from Warwick, New York. When safe to do so, my son spun car around to face the eagle and we captured several cell phone photos. Eagle was still there an hour later when I brought my husband down to view it, this time with Canon & binoculars in hand. At no time was raptor disturbed; I have a background in ornithology as well as contribute to Cornell watches and am familiar with proper sighting behavior. No one seemed to notice eagle despite obvious photo shooting!

Spotted two bald eagles flying while stopped at a red light in Deptford, NJ. At first I thought they were turkey vultures because of the size but when they turned I got the full view, white head, white tail. Never in my life did I ever think I would see a bald eagle while at a red light next to a McDonalds near the Deptford Mall. Just incredible, what timing. I constantly bird and hawk watch.

A pair of bald eagles were over the upper parking area along the look out area at Red Bank Battlefield, National Park NJ. Clearly visible, white head, yellow beak etc. Had seen them from the park before a few years back but this time they were right over our head for a bit. This was before the snow came across from PA, around 320-330 PM Friday 1/30/15.

I saw a bald eagle flying around Alcyon Lake Park in Pitman today at 3pm. This is the third weekend in a row i have been able to spot him. On 1/10/15 I spotted two eagles together one flying and one sitting nearby in a tree on the southeast of the lake. He has a distinct high pitch call that almost sounds like a whistle, very long wingspan at least 7 or 8'.
