Rhode Island

There has been a bald eagle fishing at Tiogue lake in Coventry Rhode Island for several years. I have pictures of him from 3 years ago when he did not have the white markings and last year when he did have the white markings. He liked to perch in a tree at the edge of the lake. This year the tree he liked to sit in fell down and I was concerned that we may not see him, Luckily, this week we did see an eagle flying across the lake, this one looked smaller than the one last year but it didn’t come close enough to take a picture. But, this morning my husband and I woke up and in a neighbors tree we saw two eagles perched, our friend from the last few years and his new friend. They are amazing. I do wish I was a better photographer but am pleased to say I got a few shots of both of them in that tree today.

While standing at the edge of the water on the northend of Gorton Lake, at 11:45 AM a large Bald Eagle flew past my friend Yvonne Voet, the eagle was moving (flying) in an east to west direction. The eagle appeared to be in excellent form. Gorton Lake is located in Warwick, Rhode Island.

As boating season came to an end on 11/4/2014, I was helping a friend pull his boat out of Apponaug Cove in Warwick, RI. As I looked to my right, I noticed two large Bald Eagles circling over the water. One swooped down and caught a menhaden. I commonly see Ospreys do the same but these were two beautiful birds with very clean white heads and tails and I was overwhelmed by their size. As we pulled the boat out, I stopped in Rays Bait and Tackle and told of my sighting. I was told that they have been seen during the whole week around the cove. I have never seen a wild Bald Eagle so close before and it was amazing.

I live on Bowdish Lake. My boyfriend and I decide to take a ride out on our boat to see the new rising land. Well wouldn't you know as we're approaching. There sat a BEAUTIFUL BREATH TAKING EAGLE. A first sight of an Eagle for the two of us. We stopped the motor. Off went the Eagle. Flying toward George Washington camp ground and landed in a pine tree. As we approached the pine tree we sat in awe and waited to see the next move. Off flew the Eagle to another pine. Sitting watching us as we watched it. Off flew the Eagle once more. This time it flew toward us. To the center of the lake then just about right over us. The Eagle continued flying toward rt.44. I'm amazed in awe and can't believe I've been so close to such an AMAZING BEAUTIFUL BREATHTAKING EAGLE!!!

A bald eagle has been spending the past few days on the western shore of Stafford Pond in Tiverton RI. It appears to be a just matured bird with a few brown feathers still on its head. He was in the same tree for three days straight in the late afternoon.

I am a dog walker in Barrington, RI. My first sighting was of a large male in May 2006. I saw him in the Ferry Lane area now and then for the next year. Then...no more. Then, in the winter of 2012, I saw a male bald eagle while walking along the trails of Veterans Memorial Park with my daily dog walking crew. We saw him twice more thru the winter. Then in the early summer of 2013 we saw him cast off the bird island in the middle of Brick Yard Pond. I had just mentioned to my friend...I hope we see the eagle today. He appeared as if on cue. Then a smaller eagle...a female? Then the eaglet cast off. A family! We watched them fly for about 4 minutes then they flew off into the nearby woods. I need to invest in some binoculars!

Saw a Bald Eagle yesterday, (Oct. 22), approximately 4:30 p.m. on Burlingame pond while kayaking with a friend. It was near the boat ramp section of Burlingame campground. We were kayaking along the edge of the pond when it flew up out of a tree. Incredibly large wingspan! It landed in another tree and as we approached that tree it flew up and off to the back side of the pond.

I was taking a walk Sunday a.m feb 3rd 2013 in tuckertown park when I noticed several crows hassling something in the trees right above the pond. as I got closer I realized it was a bald eagle. He flew off with the crows chasing him and landed in another tree a few hundred yards away. At this point another eagle took off from a nearby tree and landed in a tree on the island in the pond. still another appeared near the boat launch. I think there were 2 pairs all told. Watched them soar to great heights with barely a flap of there wings toward wordens pond. My wife spotted one a few weeks earlier that flew by the kitchen window. We live across from the park.

That's something I have only seen on T.V. !

A bald eagle was sighted @ 375 Wandsworth Street in Narragansett, RI @ approximately 8:30am soaring above the tree tops. The bird was clearly an eagle, as it had the white tail feathers and had a sizeable wing span. We live close to Point Judith pond and the eagle appeared to be headed towards open water.

I had the fortune to observe a migratory Bald Eagle on Indian Lake in South Kingstown RI. The eagle was eating a Seagull . It flew with the Seagull to the island and I tracked it there and it flew again with carcass to inland . Must have been hungry to eat a bird . I saw a immature one last year on the lake.

I saw a Bald Eagle adult fly by our house on the Warren River in Warren, RI this morning at about 9:00. I have never seen one before...and I had to look it up to see if it was possible :) Cool!
We do live just a short walk away from the Bristol Audobon Society Refuge..so, perhaps, that encourages this wonderful wildlife! Great!

At 12:30 pm I saw a juvenile Bald Eagle flying over the Blackstone canal and Albion falls. Then as I was driving down New River Rd. towards Manville , about a mile and a half away, when I saw the white head and tail of another beautiful Bald Eagle. I pulled over to watch it for a few minutes. I wish I had my camera with me.

On 2 January 2010 at about 10:15 AM, one Adult Bald Eagle made at least three passes hugging the shoreline below treetop level between Sabin Point and Cresent/Larissa Park in Riverside, RI. On the third pass, the eagle could could clearly be seen to be carrying a large rodent.

Today, (1/1/2010) for the first time, I saw a bald eagle fly across Carl's Pond from SE to NW. Carl's pond is at the junction of Jencks Road in Wentham and Woonsocket, Rhode Island. At first glance it appeared to be a vulture flying away against the overcast sky. As the bird turned sideways I picked up my binoculars and observed it's big white head and tail. Awesome!

First sighted it was flying North at tree top level upstream from the Armistice Blvd Dam and then started circling over the river around the Eddington Street area for several minutes and then dropped out of sight.

At 10:15 AM on 1/20/09 I saw a large Bald Eagle fly past my home on Terrace Ave in Riverside, RI. I was looking across the street at the bay and saw it fly between the two homes across from me. It was flying North to South above the beach. I caught a second view a second later as it flew between two other homes.

I have been seeing 4 bald eagles at the north end of the Narrow River in North Kingstown, Rhode Island for 2-3 months now. There's at least one adult with the full white head and tail, another that has a white head but the tail is not quite full white, and two immature eagles with no white head or tail but mottled white on the wings. I have seen all four at one time and have pictures of the two immatures on the ice picking at a fish and the two adults in the same tree.
