Capt. Dave Pickering wrote the following: On Cedar Tree Point in Greenwich Bay in Warwick where we live on September 3rd 2016 observed a very large and majestic mature adult bald eagle soaring over the water along with a younger eagle or ospray following. In August of 2014 we observed and video recorded an adult bald eagle feasting on a large fish out on Cedar Tree Point in front of our home. It's wonderful to see our American Symbol return in numbers here in Rhode Island!

Becca Tennent wrote the following: 11/7/15 9:00am Bald Eagle sighting in our backyard (private road off Town Farm Road, Coventry, RI). We saw a ripple in the small pond in the backyard and then a swooping bald eagle landed in the tree. Magnificent. He flew across the pond into another tree, sat for a short while and then flew off again. Feeling lucky today!

Lonsdale and John st on the Cumberland and Lincoln RI line. Flying directly of the Blackstone River. Could be crazy. Large bird dark feathers on body and wings. White head and tail.

This morning while sitting in my office at 4 Richmond Square I spotted a Bald Eagle sitting in the trees right before the Red Bridge on the Providence side. My co-workers and I tried to take a picture but it blended in with the trees and the bridge but it was amazing. It flew towards River Road in the bushes.
Had to share!

I saw a bald eagle perched on the cell tower on Wood Street behind the Senior Center in Coventry RI as I was getting off my school bus on 1/29/15. I told my father and we got a telescope to see it better. I have never seen one in the wild before just in zoos. I can't wait to see him again and will always be on the lookout.

At 14:12 on 10 January 2015 I sighted a bald eagle flying WNW along the Blackstone River at the bike path in Albion, RI. He was flying in a fast straight- line at about 100 - 120 AGL. I viewed the bird from the 5th floor of my condo over looking the river. I had 2 to 3 seconds of direct visibility of the bird flying less than 50 meters from the building on the top floor.
Amazing!

Sunday, December 28th
11:50 AM in Wickford Rhode Island. A bald eagle flew over my vehicle as I was driving down Boston neck Road in Wickford Rhode Island. It was huge and majestic. At first, I thought I was imagining it because I didn't know they were in Rhode Island.but it was unmistakably an adult large bald eagle. Incredibly beautiful.
I feel extremely lucky to have witnessed it.

There has been a bald eagle fishing at Tiogue lake in Coventry Rhode Island for several years. I have pictures of him from 3 years ago when he did not have the white markings and last year when he did have the white markings. He liked to perch in a tree at the edge of the lake. This year the tree he liked to sit in fell down and I was concerned that we may not see him, Luckily, this week we did see an eagle flying across the lake, this one looked smaller than the one last year but it didn’t come close enough to take a picture. But, this morning my husband and I woke up and in a neighbors tree we saw two eagles perched, our friend from the last few years and his new friend. They are amazing. I do wish I was a better photographer but am pleased to say I got a few shots of both of them in that tree today.

While standing at the edge of the water on the northend of Gorton Lake, at 11:45 AM a large Bald Eagle flew past my friend Yvonne Voet, the eagle was moving (flying) in an east to west direction. The eagle appeared to be in excellent form. Gorton Lake is located in Warwick, Rhode Island.

As boating season came to an end on 11/4/2014, I was helping a friend pull his boat out of Apponaug Cove in Warwick, RI. As I looked to my right, I noticed two large Bald Eagles circling over the water. One swooped down and caught a menhaden. I commonly see Ospreys do the same but these were two beautiful birds with very clean white heads and tails and I was overwhelmed by their size. As we pulled the boat out, I stopped in Rays Bait and Tackle and told of my sighting. I was told that they have been seen during the whole week around the cove. I have never seen a wild Bald Eagle so close before and it was amazing.
