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!

On my way to work this morning, around 8:10 AM I spotted a male Bald Eagle on Rolling Greens Gold Course on Newton-Sparta Rd in Newton, NJ. He was working on a deer carcass. I have in the past few months also seen one flying around in Sparta Glen, in Sparta, NJ which is not too far away.

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'.

Although bald eagles are still listed on New Jersey's endangered species list, the number of birds has increased to an all time high.

At 11:00 am (1-19-2015) I saw a bald eagle take flight from the woods between Glen Lake and Sunside Avenue and flew west towards Glassboro Road. I've never seen one in Woodbury Heights and I've lived here my whole life. At first I thought it was a turkey vulture; but I saw it's white head and tail. It was truly a magnificent bird.
