Bald eagle, Image created by Hope Rutledge

Monday, February 11, 8am, Princeton, NJ. During a light snow, observed an adult bald eagle swooping over the water @ Millstone River Park, adjacent to busy Route 1, between Harrison St and Plainsboro Rd on the south side. It circled over the water, then came to rest in a nearby tree. Lucky for me, the traffic was at its usual crawl, and I could enjoy the majestic sight!

I saw a Bald Eagle today 2/11/2019 near 2209 Fostertown Road, Hainsport, NJ. The time of day was 3:34pm. It was beautiful. It was on the ground in a corn field less than 20 yards from the road. . Pure white head and a white tail when it flew away into a large pine.
I was shocked to see one here.

During a military funeral on Saturday, Feb. 9th, as the casket was being carried to the gravesite, a pair of eagles soared high overhead. They disappeared for a short time, only to reappear as Taps was being blown near the conclusion of the service. Spotted at Harleigh Cemetery in Camden, NJ, near Farnham Park.=

Just saw an eagle fly over our property on Samuel Dr, Flemington, NJ. We thought it was a vulture until it got closer. Positively beautiful!

Yesterday morning, 2/4/2019, at around 720am, I was lucky enough to watch a Bald Eagle fly and land atop a light post for the baseball field at Jannarone Park in Parsippany NJ 07054. The bird remained atop the light post for 30 minutes or longer as I had to leave for work. I sighted a Bald Eagle twice more, in flight, afar, that day. I am still keeping my eyes open for said Bald Eagle.

Saw an adult Bald Eagle around 11am on The October 14, 2018 in a neighborhood in Branchburg, NJ close to North Branch station. There were about 10 turkey vultures feeding on a deer carcass nearby for the past 2 days, and suddenly all of them flew away today- figured the carcass may have been taken away, and it was then I saw this majestic bird with a white head and white tail feathers flying at the same time close to the vultures.

I am incredibly fortunate to be able to observe bald eagles from the comfort of my living room easy chair. I live on Alloway lake and for the past 5 years have delighted in watching the birds. This year we have 2 adults and 3 juvenile birds hunting on a daily basis. They are all adept at catching fish. I have also observed one of the adults take a merganser as it surfaced.

I was driving toward Kearny NJ on route 21 in Clifton, I saw what looked like a Bald Eagle. I made my delivery, and about half hour later drove back to area, and I saw the Bald Eagle still perched in the dead trees lodged in the Passaic river in between Garfield, Clifton, and Passaic NJ. So I pulled over, to check it out with my binoculars (what a sight). It was just sitting there looking for food, or possibly just ate food & relaxing. I noticed it flap its wings a few times, then it moved from one side of trees to the other so now it was actually facing me. What a sight & blessing!

I saw a Bald Eagle flying above the Oceanic Bridge over the Navesink River, Rumson, NJ, today around 12:30 p.m. Since I was on the bridge/couldn't "park," I turned around @ the next st./crossed back over the bridge, and he was now sitting on the ice on the river.
By the time I got to the end of the bridge (a minute!) and parked, a fellow birder told me he took off/flew down-river toward Red Bank.
The same gentleman told me two eagles were spotted earlier last week on Sandy Hook.

Wow I am in awe. We just saw an American bald eagle in East Orange New Jersey on Springfield Avenue and Prospect near the old Uppsalla college there is now a new housing development there.

Approximately 1:50pm on Thursday, January 11, 2018, two bald eagles were spotted at Dorchester Elementary School in Woodcliff Lake, NJ.
First one was seen flying and landing high in a tree on the school property. When that eagle took off another one joined it in flight towards the back of the school. The teachers and the students in the classroom watched in amazement.
I followed the birds path to the back of the school. One of the eagles landed on the ground, and walked about for approx. a minute. Once it took to flight the other eagle again joined it. They flew a short ways and landed in trees still on the school property. The school's science teacher remained in the classroom keeping a watch out for them. She said they flew back again, this time there were three bald eagles.
It was an amazing afternoon for those of us privileged to have seen these majestic birds.

I have been seeing a bald eagle a couple of times in the past few weeks, near the intersection of Columbia Street and River Edge Road in New Milford, NJ. The last time was on January 5, 2018, around 8 AM. I think this bird hunts fish on the Hackensack river. I've seen them a few times in a few spots near this, and it's always near the river.

This morning, the 28th of December, I spotted an eagle on Loantaka Way as I was headed north. An odd location I thought but maybe due to the temperature in the teens, it may have strayed for food. Definitely caught me off guard, but I have seen many eagles in the Chesapeake Bay area. Awesome to see!

Saw a large bald eagle standing near the side of the road next to a dead dear not ten feet from passing cars. Vultures were just landing. Happened Christmas Day 2017 at 8:35am 37 degrees on River a Road/Route 18 north in front of Colgate Research Center in Piscataway. Large, beautiful and majestic! Did anyone else see it?

We saw 3 bald eagles at various stages of immaturity on Friday, 12/22/17, around 3:45pm ET, right by the intersection of Rte 537 (Monmouth Rd) and Lawrence Dr in Plumsted Township/Wrightstown -- about a block east of the Brigadier General William C. Doyle Memorial Cemetery.
They were feeding on a deer carcass in the field in the north side of Monmouth Rd. Two of the three eagles already had their white heads, while the 3rd just had lots of white mottling throughout. We had to pull over and watch them feed, since seeing any, never mind 3 at the same time, is rare for us!

On 12/13/17 I observed a pair of bald eagles feeding on a raccoon in the Everitt Farm field behind my house in Ringoes, NJ. Not sure if they killed it, but they were definitely feasting on it. I took a series of pictures; gorgeous birds. When they saw me they grabbed the carcass and took it further away towards a tree line at the edge of the field to finish eating.

I want to report a bald eagle sighting near our home in Hopewell Township on November 8th, 2017 around 4:10pm. My youngest child saw the eagle fly over our yard and then it perched on a branch in a tall pine tree in our neighbor's yard where my two youngest children, a friend and I all were able to see the eagle.

"Medium" size bird with mature plumage, plucking at kill, 10/30/2017, first observed near 2:00 PM then about 15 minutes later when I returned with camera, remained in car, eagle continued feeding, seemingly undisturbed. Eagle was about 50-60 yards into corn field.

Since we've had so many hawk attacks on our backyard birds lately, we were curious to see what kind this was. As it flew closer, we saw its white head and both exclaimed, "OMG!! IT'S A BALD EAGLE!!!!"

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.
