I had just gotten on the 4 lane by the windmills and drive maybe a mile or 2 and the beautiful eagle was flying parallel to the road. I pulled over as well as other cars and took pictures. This is my very first citing ever.

August 30, 2016 about 1:30pm in Mineral Wells, West Virginia near Turkey Foot Road. He/she was soaring very high with another large bird much higher which I couldn't identify, I spotted the two and knew the lower bird was a bald eagle,ran in the house for my 10 power binoculars and still couldn't tell what the higher bird was. My wife saw them too. This is close to the Little Kanawha River.

It flew from the field below the road into a tree above the road. I stop the car to look at it again. A beautiful sight and one I never thought I would see in WV.

Dates: November 23 and November 25
I'm writing to report two separate eagle sightings. On November 23, 2015, I spotted an eagle flying high over the Hartland area of Clarksburg, WV. I managed to get a couple of photos.
Then, two days later, I am walking the Rails to Trails in Clarksburg, again in the Hartland area, and I see one eagle dash off of a tree and land down river. I continue to walk and look for bird photos, when I see the eagle take off again, with another behind it. That amounts to three eagles in as many days, unless the one I saw on November 23 is one of the ones I saw two days later. Either way, it looks like we might have Bald Eagles using this area as their winter grounds. I saw them here last year on four different occasions.

Bonnie Brown wrote the following: There is a mountain in between Hedgesville and Martinsburg WV on Dry Run Rd. I saw the eagle fishing in the creek at the bottom of the mountain. I stopped the car and backed up to make sure that I saw it correctly. It turned and looked at me and then flew off into a tree along the banks and perched there. I drove off. I didn't want to disturb it, but was super excited that I got to see this beautiful bird in the wild. I drive this road every day, and every day I will keep my eyes open to see if I can see it again.

My husband and I observed an adult Bald Eagle on a tree near the back waters of the Kanawha River in the area known as Rock Branch. He sat in a tree and we observed him by binoculars for a good ten minutes. He then flew, remained in the area circling several times before he flew away. It was a beautiful clear day around 50 degrees, this was Jan.19, 2015 at 10:45 a.m. What a Blessing!!
