Bald eagle, Image created by Hope Rutledge

I have been seeing a pair of Eagles at the Springton Reservoir in Media, PA for the last 2 years, off and on. Mostly I see them sitting in an evergreen tree next to the road, heading south on 252. I see them at least once a week in the tree, sometimes 1, sometimes both.

I spotted a large male bald eagle this afternoon at approximately 4:45 PM on Boot Road, between Route 3 and Goshen Road in Willistown. It was standing on the front lawn of a house on Boot Road. I was very surprised. I turned my car around and slowly approach so I could take a picture but the eagle saw me and flew away. So close! It's the first and only bald eagle I have seen in Philadelphia's Western Suburbs!

Apparently it is a mature eagle as it has the full white head and tail with no mottling. There are several ponds in this farming area and Codorus Lakes are approx. 6 miles away.

I spotted an adult bald eagle in Bowemanstown Pa. at the Lehigh River Boat Ramp parking lot on 9/29/17 around 12:30 pm. It flew only about 30 feet from the ground along the river and then started flying circles with the air currents. It was the third time in my life I have seen one of these majestic birds in the wild. I'm glad to see they are making a comeback.

I have many feeders in my yard and enjoy all the beautiful birds that visit me throughout the year. I wish I would have taken a picture. Instead I quickly texted my husband. I hope I see it again! What a beautiful way to start a day.

Pennell Hopkins wrote the following: Nov. 27, 2016 sighted bald eagle flying low over East Hoffecker and South Keim Street, Pottsville, PA. Then saw what looked to be a golden eagle, seemed larger than bald eagle and had no white on underparts which an immature bald eagle would have. I am in doubt as to golden eagle, as it seems unlikely that a bald eagle and golden eagle would by in close proximity. It definitely was an eagle, not a vulture.

It was an odd location being near the airport with industry, hotels, and the Center City skyline in the distance but the Delaware River and marshy wetlands are nearby? Over the years I've occasionally spotted them along the Brandywine Creek in suburban West Chester but near the airport was unexpected ?

Kate Connors wrote the following: I am not sure how accurate this is, but it makes sense. 8/28/16 a few hours ago my husband was at intersection of 322 & Hopewell Rd in East Brandywine township, Pa. saw what he thought was a bald eagle injured in the middle of Rt.322. Traffic was a mess. A kind woman stopped in her car, brought out a blanket & wrapped up the bird & drove off, hopefully for care. I was checking for local news on the event & found your website's posts. I noticed on you siitings post that another East Brandywine resident saw a young eagle, 2 years earlier , flying low above their car. The location of that siting was less than 1/4 mile from this accident today. I had chills. I hope I am mistaken, but it seems like it could be the same bird. Very sad, they are glorious to see.
