I was soo lucky to actually see 2 male bald eagles in Monument, Colorado. I was driving on Higby Rd just past Lewis Palmer High School on January 3rd about 8:45 am in the morning. I looked up and noticed the first eagle. On the next power pole, was the second. I returned to the site but they were gone. It was soo exciting to see one but two male bald eagles was awesome!
I'm hoping the someone in Monument actually got pictures of them.

There are two Bald Eagles that have been frequently seen in the area around Smith Lake and the North end of Washington Park for the past several days. There is so much foot traffic in the park they pretty much ignore people. They are on the ice in the center of the lake or the trees near Smith Lake. 01/22/15

This afternoon (1/10/15) we spotted what appeared to be a pair of bald eagles in Berkeley Lake Park in northwest Denver, CO. It was amazing to see them, and a surprise in such an urban area.

This Bald Eagle was in Greeley Colorado. Location was the Promontory area off of business 10th hwy. Sitting on top of a pole eating what appears to be a rabbit.
I must have sat there for 20 minutes just watching it. Just amazing!

Our family saw two bald eagles yesterday at Centennial Park in Englewood on Feb 16th 2014. They were carrying a snake and spinning around together. I notice someone else on this sightings list saw them at the same park 13 months ago. They were low to the ground and easy to observe. Way cool! Made our day.

leucistic  bald eagle (Dec 31st) I saw this Bald Eagle this afternoon on my drive from Ridgway to Montrose. He was near a small town called Colona.
(Dec 29th) Can you please tell me why this bald eagle has so much white on its breast? I have been seeing it on the river walk trail in Ridgway, Colorado near the Dennis Weaver Memorial Park for about 2 weeks now.

A leucistic bald eagle; a condition caused by reduced pigmentation.

I saw a beautiful bald eagle this morning December 10th, 2013 here in Denver, Colorado at 7:10am flying SW around Colorado Blvd and East Louisiana Avenue. I have never seen one in the city before. AMAZING.

December 3rd, in Trinidad Lake State Park, Trinidad, Colorado, we spotted and photographed two Bald Eagles. One of them was a juvenile, the other was an adult. The Adult was marked strangely, having nearly a quarter of its back, above the tail starkly white like the tail and head.
These two Eagles were hunting over the lake, in winds gusting to 40 mph! It was really fun to watch them slowly glide, riding the wind, down two the lake, and with the flick of a feather, they would catch a gust and ZOOM back downstream!
Marney Mason

I saw a bald eagle flying over my new home in Prospect Canyon, just outside of Trinidad, CO. What a gorgeous sight!

November 25th, 2013 - Teller Farm Trail, Lafayette, Colorado - 2 Bald Eagles, One Mature with White head, One Immature, but still REALLY large (thought it might be a Golden but not sure it would be perched in a tree with a Bald over a reservoir). Extremely awe inspiring sight, I stayed as long as I could to watch them. :)

I saw a bald eagle today off highway 119, in between Longmont and Frederick, trying to catch a fish in the lake next to the road.

I spotted a bald eagle this morning about 10 miles east of Lamar, CO, just north of Highway 50. I saw it land in a cottonwood tree near the railroad tracks. I never thought I’d see a bald eagle in this area! What a great start to my day! 10/21/13

Today, September 19, 2013, a bald eagle flew over my car as I was driving west on US Highway 24 in "downtown" Lake George, Colorado.(This is near the South Platte River and the Lake George reservoir.) It was flying steadily from northwest to southeast, toward Pikes Peak.
I wonder if all the rainfall and replenishment of the reservoirs, streams and rivers has attracted them? I've NEVER seen one in Teller County before!
Amy Middleton

An adult Bald Eagle flew over 225 just south of Colfax, heading east. It was near 2:30pm on 2/27/2013.
