This morning we witnessed a pair of adult bald eagles perched in a dead tree behind our home in the wetlands area that is part of the Connetquot Estuary near the Connetquot River. Unfortunately there was not enough time to grab the phone for a picture. We will keep an eye on the area. We get quite a few Ospreys in the summer in this area and other beautiful shore birds but this is a first for the eagles. hope to see them again soon!

I live in Tompkins County NY near Cornell University. I was Driving on Rt 13 From Newfield toward Ithaca and saw a bald eagle feeding on a deer that had been hit by a car. It was huge. I'd never actually seen one here other than a picture posted a couple years ago on Facebook of one in the city of Ithaca sitting on a utility pole outside the city.

My parents, Linda and Leon Reynolds live in rural Savona, NY, a small western NY town. On January 18, 2018, they had the rare opportunity to see two bald eagles perched in a tree next to their house. They were unable to get a good photo of the two of the eagles together, but they did capture a photo of one of them, along with two crows in the same tree. The crows had been flying around the eagle, taunting it. Fascinating!

Wanted to share that we saw on the ground in a small farmers field at the corner of Rt. 19 - Lake Rd. and Beadle Rd. on Friday 1/19/18 at 12:50pm an adult Bald Eagle. Clearly saw the full white head and tail which is what drew our attention to it. A large crow flew close to it making the eagle take flight. We tried taking pictures with our cell phone which are attached. You need to really zoom in on picture to see the amazing bird. We watched as it flew around in semi circle towards us and flying away. A unbelievable experience so close and only blocks from our home. Had to report this incredible sighting. Hope we see many more.

Today the 26th of December of 2014 around 12 PM I was walking my dog on N. Allen Street in Albany, NY and saw a huge and beautiful Bald Eagle. It was flying southwest and it appeared to be healthy and strong. The skies were blue and there were no other birds visible in the area. It was flying not too high which gave me a clear view of its white head and dark body. I was amazed to see it...I've seen huge turkey hawks in the area but nothing the size of this bird.

Going south on Rt. 13 parallel to the lake, I looked over and saw a bald eagle flying just above us about 100 feet off the road, tracking the edge of the lake.

Could it be possible? Oakdale NY, Long Island, by the Osprey nests high above Montauk Highway, I saw what I believed was a bald eagle - it was soaring, for a split second I was reminded of the turkey vulture, but the colors were very distinct, then I realized it had to be an eagle.

Bald eagles are currently seen in the morning on the shores of the Hudson River in Stony Point and Haverstraw, NY. It is common to see six or more. Maybe the ice on the river north of this area is causing them to move into the area. January 30, 2014

I saw several adult and I believe 2 juvenile bald eagles sitting on the ice on the Hudson River. They had dead prey on the ice and were vying fir who would get it. I see them often from my windows overlooking the river near 187th st. They seem to come over from the NJ side of the river as far as I can tell. Yesterday's sighting was the most eagles at once I've seen. Beautiful.
