We saw two bald eagles flying above our Newark neighborhood near Raccoom Creek this afternoon. We are very urban so were quite surprised and very pleased to see them. They were flying low at first so perhaps had been perched in the trees along the creek.

We were only about 30 feet away. It was so vivid in color and very large compared to eagles we have seen in Maine. Must have been fishing. We tried to get a photo, but it got spooked. But will remember it in my mind's eye. What a glorious site.

Thy Cavagnaro wrote the following: We saw a bald eagle today, 12/16/16, around 3:15pm, flying from northeast (near Spring Lake) to southwest, in South Plainfield, right at the intersection of Hamilton Blvd/Plainfield Ave and Maple Ave. We were in our car at a red light, when we noticed a hawk-like bird flying overhead. 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!!!!"

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!
