We saw I bald eagle today. It was huge! We were in North Dakota on I29 traveling north, at about mile marker 12, when it landed directly in front of us. As I was frantically trying to change lanes it took off again just in time. I swear it looked like it's wing span was wider than my car. Quite the experience. I'm glad we both made it out ok.

My daughter and I spotted a pair of adult Bald Eagles app.6 miles north of Valley City North Dakota along the Sheyenne River perched up in a tree on Jan.15, 2008. It was a awesome sight we were only about 25 yards from them.

I live in Griggs County, North Dakota about 100 miles northwest of Fargo. On March 30, 2007 in the morning I saw 5 bald eagles in a pot hole near the road. The same afternoon I saw 2 more eagles in a tree. There seem to be more eagle sightings in the past several years.

I am sure I saw a beautiful bald eagle today. 22 Mar. 06. The eagle seemed to be about to eat a dead racoon. My school bus frightened it off about 100 yards away where it sat waiting. This sighting occurred in Manitoba, Canada about 6 miles north of the North Dakota/Manitoba border. I am anxious to see if the eagle ate the racoon when I return tomorrow morning.

On March 8, 2005 I spotted a pair of Bald Eagles approximately 3 miles SW of Hankinson, North Dakota. One was feeding on a deer carcass just off the road while the other was perched close by in a tree. Courtesy of Kevin Lindberg

Spotted a bald eagle on Tuesday, March 23, 2004. I was driving south on I-29 headed home to Wahpeton from Fargo. Fist spotted him flying south on the West side of the interstate. At first I just noticed a bird flying "with me" with an incredible wing span. Sure enough as I neared him he swooped a little bit towards me. I believe he was landing on the fence running along the interstate. When he turned towards me there was no mistaking was it was. He had the most incredible and beautiful white head you would ever want to see. At the same time, I was listening to our locale AM radio station (KBMW). They were discussing the fact that they had earlier had an interview with one of the local game wardens. During this interview he apparently had mentioned Bald Eagles in Richland County. To make a long story short, the two DJ's were amazed at how many people had called in to report sightings. One caller even reported seeing a Bald Eagle on the river between Wahpeton and Breckenridge (MN). This was downtown, of all places. Also, they reported two other phone calls of reports from north of Abercrombie (ND). I would believe that this was probably the same bird. All in all I have to say that this was a very impressive sight indeed!! Courtesy of Daryl D Miller
