I just saw a Bald Eagle fly across my neighborhood in Mount Vernon, NY
10552. It was majestic! It circled and went behind some trees before I
could snap a photo. Great to see this amazing symbol in my own
2/05/2018 at approx. 3:30 p.m. landed in the tallest tree on the 16th hole of the engineers golf course, causing at least 100 geese and an egret and a broad winged hawk to take flight in a panic.......what a sight.....stayed about 15 minutes before heading northeast over the swan club.......magnificent sighting.

My parents, Linda and Leon Reynolds live in rural Savona, NY, a small western NY town. On January 18, 2018, they had the rare opportunity to see two bald eagles perched in a tree next to their house. They were unable to get a good photo of the two of the eagles together, but they did capture a photo of one of them, along with two crows in the same tree. The crows had been flying around the eagle, taunting it. Fascinating!
I saw a lone Bald Eagle on 2 occasions, Jan 5 and Jan 20, 2018 Both times about 10am over by Garvies Point and Morgan Memorial Park.
Wanted to share that we saw on the ground in a small farmers field at the corner of Rt. 19 - Lake Rd. and Beadle Rd. on Friday 1/19/18 at 12:50pm an adult Bald Eagle. Clearly saw the full white head and tail which is what drew our attention to it. A large crow flew close to it making the eagle take flight. We tried taking pictures with our cell phone which are attached. You need to really zoom in on picture to see the amazing bird. We watched as it flew around in semi circle towards us and flying away. A unbelievable experience so close and only blocks from our home. Had to report this incredible sighting. Hope we see many more.
