On 4/23/2021, I was driving southbound on Route 1 in Glen Mills, PA at around 9:15AM. I saw a large bird with a white head fly over the road and land on a tree. When driving past the tree, I glanced up and saw an adult Bald Eagle perched on it. Very rare for this area.

04/13/2021 7:00pm : while sitting on our back deck I noticed a large wingspan bird in the sky. At first, I thought it was a turkey vulture which are common in this area and sighted on a daily basis. As I continue to look, I noticed that the head was a lighter shade and as I looked even more it appeared to have a light colored beak and white feathers on its head. The wingspan was much larger than a normal turkey vulture. Is it possible that it was a bald eagle in the Bucks County area of Pennsylvania?

On 4/8/21 Glen Mills, PA around noon, my wife and I were having lunch on the deck and saw several turkey vultures flying around, which we normally see but one bird caught my attention because it had a white head and tail, which I assume is a bald eagle. I ran back in to get my binoculars to get a closer look and it was indeed a bald eagle. It was just amazing. I never saw one in the wild before. I hope it comes back.

A bald eagle landed 10 ft in front of me then flew up into a tree during my morning walk in the Lehigh Parkway, Allentown PA. It was a startling and majestic moment. What a beautiful creature!

I was amazed to see a bald eagle while I was driving inbound on Kelly Drive at Hunting Park heading into center City Philadelphia two days ago! It was trying to reclaim/claim an unidentifiable kill in the westbound lane and dodging traffic in the process.
While I was stopped at the light, a stunning 20-second show started of it diving from a tree... getting air in seconds again to avoid a car...circling...diving again... and it continued in my rear view mirror. I so wish I could have watched forever.
Only me, and two other cars, were at the light at 7:15am, plus the westbound dodgers. So rare to have seen this, especially where I did. I'll never forget it.
Maine, Montana, Washington, Canada...no eagle sightings. Downtown Philadelphia - bingo. Not right, right?

Saw two bald eagles today at approximately 11 am while golfing at Olde Stonewall golf course near Elwood City PA. One was an immature eagle fishing in Connoquenessing creek which borders the golf course and the other was a mature eagle perched in a tree behind the 18th tee. Eagle sightings on this golf course are routine.

Just saw 2 juvenile bald eagles between Sells Lane & Goodwin Ave. in Greensburg, Pa. I have seen these 2 several times since spring of 2019 in the same area. They may be settled into a tall, ivy covered tree as they frequently land there. Last seen at approximately 1:00 P. M. This day, January 7, 2020.

I have been seeing a pair of Eagles at the Springton Reservoir in Media, PA for the last 2 years, off and on. Mostly I see them sitting in an evergreen tree next to the road, heading south on 252. I see them at least once a week in the tree, sometimes 1, sometimes both.

I spotted a large male bald eagle this afternoon at approximately 4:45 PM on Boot Road, between Route 3 and Goshen Road in Willistown. It was standing on the front lawn of a house on Boot Road. I was very surprised. I turned my car around and slowly approach so I could take a picture but the eagle saw me and flew away. So close! It's the first and only bald eagle I have seen in Philadelphia's Western Suburbs!

Apparently it is a mature eagle as it has the full white head and tail with no mottling. There are several ponds in this farming area and Codorus Lakes are approx. 6 miles away.

I spotted an adult bald eagle in Bowemanstown Pa. at the Lehigh River Boat Ramp parking lot on 9/29/17 around 12:30 pm. It flew only about 30 feet from the ground along the river and then started flying circles with the air currents. It was the third time in my life I have seen one of these majestic birds in the wild. I'm glad to see they are making a comeback.

Pennell Hopkins wrote the following: Nov. 27, 2016 sighted bald eagle flying low over East Hoffecker and South Keim Street, Pottsville, PA. Then saw what looked to be a golden eagle, seemed larger than bald eagle and had no white on underparts which an immature bald eagle would have. I am in doubt as to golden eagle, as it seems unlikely that a bald eagle and golden eagle would by in close proximity. It definitely was an eagle, not a vulture.

Traffic was a mess. A kind woman stopped in her car, brought out a blanket & wrapped up the bird & drove off, hopefully for care. I was checking for local news on the event & found your website's posts. I noticed on you siitings post that another East Brandywine resident saw a young eagle, 2 years earlier , flying low above their car. The location of that siting was less than 1/4 mile from this accident today. I had chills. I hope I am mistaken, but it seems like it could be the same bird. Very sad, they are glorious to see.

When I got out of the car to get a better picture it took off. I was only about 20 yards away. It was great for me since it was the first one I ever saw in the wild.

The eagle ended up flying off into a tree to which we noticed another bald eagle perched next to the one we were watching.
Just today (12/20/14) about two miles or so west of where I saw the pair two weeks ago, I saw two bald eagles, which I assume were the same pair, perched on this giant cell phone tower behind a restaurant named Teikoku on West Chester Pike in Edgmont, Pa.

I spotted two bald eagles along the Youghiogheny River on Oct 28 2014 at 11:30 AM fishing in the shallows -river right- 4 miles south of Connellsville Pa(Mile marker 84 on the Great Allegheny Passage). When I first noticed them one had just caught a fish and landed in a tree above the shallows where it stayed the entire time I watched. The second flew back and forth above the shallows a couple times then flew up stream. I took several pictures of the one that had perched when the second one came back and again scanned the shallows several times before heading upstream again. I spent approx. 1/2 hour at that spot watching. On my return trip 3 hours later I stopped and scanned the area but saw no sign of them. The size of the pair was rather small and they could be the ones born near Pittsburgh Pa this spring. On one other occasion, Aug 25 2014 I saw them approx. 10 miles south of Connellsville Pa. above the river while riding the Great Allegheny Passage but they were to high to get a picture.

I saw an adult Bald Eagle and what appeared to be a large juvenile along the Delware/Raritan Canal Path in Morrisville, Pennsylvania on October 14 around 6pm. The adult and juvenile were perched on the same branch until observers got to within 40-50 feet (and across the canal) from the pair when the adult flew to another tree. A few moments later the adult again relocated, this time closer to the juvenile. At no time did the juvenile appear to move or make any noise.

Spotted bald eagle in southern Chester County, PA. It was flying south near School House Road in West Grove, PA. It flew down to a retention pond near Medford Farms development. I went to get a bit closer, go snap a picture, and it flew away.

Between July 29, 2014 and October 3, 2014 I have seen a mature bald eagle nine times at the Peninsula tow path along the Cuyahoga River. An eagle has perched several times on the upper branches of a tree on the opposite side of the river from the path. Once an eagle was in a tree on the tow path side, and when I approached the tree it disturbed the eagle, he then flew overhead, and up the river. I have seen one sitting on the bank of the river and then take off flying, and I have seen one fly at a low level along the river with the unusual flapping of the wings. It is an amazing sight.

On October 1st, while driving on rte 113 towards Chester springs (rte 401) was behind me, I saw a Bald Eagle perched high in a tree overlooking rte 113. I turned around to look again and it flew off. It was beautiful with the dark black body and bright white hood and head. awesome!

I live in West Chester, Pa but yesterday 9/27/2014, I was in Newtown Square, Pa I was driving North on route 252.
In our area you see a lot of Turkey Vultures, but this was different it had a white head and tail. I knew it had to be a Bald Eagle. I did a Google search Bald Eagle in flight and there was exactly what I saw.
So the sighting was route 252 North and Goshen Road West and in flight. Flying WNW...

Today, January 19, 2014 I watched a bald eagle fly over Akron Park, Akron Pa. for the third time this winter. Each time it happened during the middle of the afternoon, flying in a northwest direction. Certainly makes walking my dog a lot more exciting.

Saw a mature bald eagle at 10 am on 1/7/14 over the Allegheny river in downtown Pittsburgh just across from PNC park. This is the second time I've seen a bald eagle near downtown Pittsburgh. The other sighting was a couple of years ago, but also occurred during the winter months.

My husband spotted a Bald eagle( about 3 years ago)about half a mile from where i seen him/her hanging out all day. I read an article in the Reading Eagle newspaper about 6 months ago talking about the delisting and known nests; so i was so excited to see it today hanging around other birds of prey in a tree down the road from our house. I did a bunch of running around and i could still spot him but by the time i actually got around to getting my camera it was gone ;(
We are located in Hamburg, Pa, thats in Berks County.
Im going to be keeping my camera in my van from now on because as i told my 4 year old this is a special once in a lifetime kind of thing and i really hope to get some pictures.

ROUTE 113 and horseshoe trail
Chester springs, PA. 19425
Observe two bald eagles sitting in a tree less than 100 yards from the intersection. This is the first time I ever seen them in the wild there were a dozen people standing in the middle of the road taking pictures, amazing.

Just stepped outside where I live at the corner of Huntingdon Pike and Moreland Road and at 20 feet above me as I stood on my deck, a perfect bald Eagle flew over. It was no doubt because it's perfect white tail and white head were quite visible from my distance. I have the penny pack park trail run through the back yard as well as the penny pack Creek runs through as well. I heard of other sightings close to me as well. I hope this Eagle stays in the area as it was my ever first sighting in my 55 years alive. Just thought I would make this known, so others might stop and look up periodically while on the trail, in hopes to catch a glimpse.
