eagles,Image created by Hope Rutledge


While traveling up I75 at mm 200 there is a blue over pass. Often spotted are a pair of eagles. This is second year I have seen them here. I am not sure if they have tags or not, can only see them while driving the hwy. They sit on the light posts and mate on the lights over the hwy

My neighbor called me yesterday afternoon and said he saw an eagle fly into my back yard and landed in a tree behind my house. I went right outside to see if I could see it, but could not. I live in a wooded area with lots of tall pine trees near the Naval Hospital in Pensacola, Fl.

I seen my first bald eagle after searching for almost 20 years for one. Was the most amazing experience ever, especially to have it almost in the pool of the complex I live in and so close to me. If flew in and landed on a light pool right outside pool in Tampa near Brigadoon townhouse near Lake Heather at Dale Mabry and Van Dyke. I literally stared in awe looking at it then it flew away so gracefully. Truly an amazing experience.

Brenda and Jim Smith wrote the following: On 9/7/15, in North Port, Fl 34289, we were surprised with a bald eagle flying low over the pond behind our house! He circled the pond TWICE before heading over to rest in a tall tree. It appeared as though he dropped his prey into the pond, during the first pass. I have some pictures!! It was back again, soaring and chasing some cattle egrets on 9/25!! Unfortunately, I didn't capture any pictures of that. We've lived here going on three years, and these were new, wonderful, experiences!

Yesterday, around 5:30 p.m., there was a bald eagle perched on top of a very tall, thin tree in my neighbor's back yard. It was just looking around at his surroundings. I lived in Southeast Alaska for 5 years so very familiar with what they look like...I am in southwest Florida across the bridge from St. Pete Beach.

I saw a large Bald Eagle grab a fish from a small lake outside my office in Delray Beach, Florida. It swooped down, grabbed the fish and soared high. For some reason it dropped the fish in my parking lot and flew away.

Two bald eagles were circling each other almost directly overhead. One must have been a juvenile because the feathers were still spotted. The other was a striking adult. Sighted on January 24, 2014 at about 2:30pm on the shores of Lake Bonny at 1200 Bartow Road, Lakeland, Florida.

I live in tampa FL, 33626 Citrus Park area. Yesterday around 1:30 when I was driving I looked up and I saw a bald eagle. I was so surprised and happy. So I was going to stop to take pictures but there was traffic on Sheldon rd. I got home and when I parked in my driveway to the left I saw a big bird. I opened the door threw my purse on the ground and ran to see if it was the bald eagle. Sure enough it was. I was so exited that I rang the doorbell to get my husbands attention and let him know to bring the camera. It was a wonderful experience!
