Bald eagle, Image created by Hope Rutledge

This morning at or around 9:15 AM I sighted a Bald Eagle swooping and lifting a fish from the White River. This took place on VT Rt 14 heading north in the Sharon/West Hartford area. It circled the river twice and then swooped down attempting to snatch a fish. First time no success. Second swoop it plucked a fish out of the White River and flew to the shore where it proceeded to peck at the fish. I turned to get my camera and when I turned back it was gone. What a thrill!.................David L Reese

Today (12/23/15) at 1pm I saw a bald eagle with my 2 sons, ages 7 & 10. It was on Colchester Point in Colchester VT, high in a tree looking towards the causeway. It had white on the bottom of the tail. Such a treat 2 days before Christmas!

We spotted a bald eagle on January 9, 2015 at 10:30 am in Ludlow, Vermont. The eagle was flying low along Route 103. He/she appeared to be fishing in the Black river. This was our first sighting in Vermont! We were thrilled to see such a majestic bird in the wild.

I saw a bald eagle yesterday, 12/31/14, flying above the Winooski River in Essex Junction directly across from the access to the connector, Route 289. It was flying pretty low and looking down at the ground. First one that I have ever seen outside of captivity. A great omen for the coming year.

Saw a bald eagle cruising up the West River in Londonderry, VT, this afternoon – 11/09/14. Can't say whether it was male or female; it was following the river about 30 ft. in the air. Flushed out a small group of pigeons from under the Alexander bridge.

On September 24 2014 tim davis and gary perzanowski saw a mature majestic bald eagle in rutland city Vermont.. It was on the otter creek river at the outer edge of rutland city limits off dorr drive near the intersection of river street bridge. There is talk in that neighborhood of other sightings at this time. Apparently the eagle is finding ample food in otter creek suffice to stay around for awhile. The otter creek and east creek in this general area have been heavily stocked this past spring. Its good to see the vt fish and game efforts help the fisherman and the eagle. We sighted the eagle at very close range but too surprised to get out our cameras . The eagle was large and very healthy in appearance. We were thrilled to witness.

My husband and I saw a mature bald eagle between 1:00 and 1:30 pm today while we were driving along the Charles River near Buckingham Brown and Nichols.

On Thursday, January 30, 2013 I saw a bald eagle on the ground pecking at something in a field on the south side of Route 117 between Essex Junction and Richmond, about half a mile north of the Winooski River. As I drove by he flew up into the trees.

I spotted a bald eagle on our drive through Bridgewater Vermont this morning (12/8/13) around 10:45am. It was sitting on a branch above the Ottauquechee River about a half mile east of the 100a intersection on Rt. 4. It was clearly visible from the road. Very cool!!!

Today is 11/15/13 around 11:15 AM here in West Bridgewater along US Route 4, I saw might be the same American Bald Eagle that I have spotted 3 days ago. Same size and with distinctive white feathers in chest and yellow beak.

Today 11/12/13 we are in West Bridgewater Vt, along US Route 4 while having breakfast 8:30 am when this big bald eagle caught in my peripheral vision. And landed on a tree outside our house. Was so excited to get my phone to take photo. I tried to open my curtain slowly because my husband told me it will fly away if the see my moving, sure it did. But i had a close glimpse of it flying away. So magnificent! I was so bum that i did not able to take a photo, but i was so happy to see it briefly.

On September 9, 2013 approx. 4pm, entering the USA from the Highgate Springs port of entry on Interstate 89, immediately pulling out of first exit 1/2 mile south from customs where Old Route 7 starts/ends, next to the overpass on Route 7, large American Bald Eagle got into my sight, less than 25 feet away from the car, then took altitude where I noticed he just caught a small fish, most likely from nearby Missisquoi Bay. He then flew northbound just as he was heading to cross the border himself! Amazing feeling to see such a beauty coming to say Hi and pulling away!

In the afternoon at around 3:30 PM on February 3, 2013 we were tarveling North on VT-100 driving from Ludlow toward Plymouth. There was a large beautiful bald eagle sitting in a tree on the east side of the road across the frozen narrow water tributary to Echo Lake. We pulled off the road to get a better look. It appeared to be a mature female. Very disctinctive looking bird, I had never seen one in the wild before, absoltuely amazing.

We were just exiting Manchester, Vermont today, 01/04/2013, on Route 11/30 heading east when we were overflown twice by a mature Bald Eagle. Very distinctive with the white head and tail and characteristic fierce look as he cruised the thermals. Not more than 200 feet up. Stopped the car dead in the middle of the road to watch!
