We live just South of Westpark Tollway and north of Hwy 99 in Richmond, zip 77407. About 5:30 pm, my husband and I saw a bald eagle perched on top of an electric pole near a new Texas Roadhouse Restaurant. We stopped to view it better and when we exited our vehicle it flew toward the new LA Fitness building across the street. Out of curiosity, I drove to the same location the following morning to see if he was there, which he wasn't. But then on my way to the Kroger which was just around the corner I spotted the eagle. It was eating something while perched on another electrical pole. The pole was In a housing community and across the street from another housing development's large pond/sitting area. It was magical seeing it! We thought maybe it was nesting on top of the fitness building as it is leaps and bounds the tallest, safest place in the area. No really tall trees here and new construction everywhere on what was pasture land.

I was driving east on Hwy 164, 3 miles outside of Groesbeck, Texas on 1/14/2020 at 4pm, when I spied a bald eagle in a large oak tree off the road. I quickly pulled over and grabbed my camera. I got a few distant shots while perched and in flight. My first bald eagle sighting! I have been looking for many years all over Texas. Great day!

I was driving down Shepherd Tram Road in Shepherd, TX 77371 on Sunday, Jan 20, 2019 when I saw a bald eagle flying very low along the road and as we got closer to it, it dipped off to the right and up into the woods to the north.

I was driving toward Tatum, TX viewing the sites along the way. As I was nearing a creek, an eagle flew above of my vehicle. I wish I had had a camera. It was so pretty. I suspect it was flying along the creek path going into the woods.

About a month ago I saw one in a plowed field between Rockdale and Thorndale.

   Just spotted a magnificent bald eagle for the first time!
   As I was returning home from dropping my daughter off at school, I was driving through my neighborhood (Briarhill Estates) on Scottish Mist Trail in Highland Village, TX. Just as I was approaching the bend, I spotted a huge, majestic brown bird with a hooked, yellow beak, white head, fanned white tail feathers & thick, yellow talons clutching a fish.
   It was coasting North about 15 feet up with its wings stretched out like an airplane. It’s wingspan was easily as wide as my arm span.
   It was truly amazing to see such a regal bird...It looked much bigger in person than I would have anticipated, and I am still in awe over the breadth of its wingspan.

I am in the DeZavala Lockhill Selma area near the Walmart Neighborhood Market. I did not have my phone with me and didn't want to move. It stood there looking through the glass. Must have seen his reflection and charged the glass, then flew upward into a tree right above him. I have a pond with fish in my backyard, but the fish were not disturbed.

It was at 8:45 a.m. I drive this road every day back and forth to take my granddaughter to school. I have been driving that road for 20 years and I've never seen a bald eagle. It was a beautiful site, turned the car around and took as many pictures as I could with the camera I had. I watched it move around a little bit for about 15 minutes then it turned around opened its wings and flew off and watched it sore majestically off into the sky! Happy Valentine's Day to me!

Javier Gomez wrote the following: I've lived in south central Texas nearly 60 years and have yet to see a bald eagle in these parts. Caracaras are native to this area; they are a bird of prey in the falcon family and are about the size of a red-tailed hawk. They have white heads with a black crest and white tail feathers, and because of their plumage, are often mistaken for bald eagles.

Virginia Lawrence wrote the following: Female, approximately 5 miles southwest of Frankston, TX on Farm to Market Road (FM)837, on Sunday, January 9th, 2016, 10:15 a.m. FM 837 is secluded, low-traffic road surrounded by East Texas hard and piney woods with scattered pastures. She was on the roadside perhaps eating prey. I was traveling north-bound on route to church. I slowed down when I spotted the road-side bird, because it did not flee like most hawks do when a vehicle approaches. She flew low to the road ahead of me for about 25 yards then flew up over trees. She was quite large, and I did not actually realize she was a Bald Eagle until she ascended and I could see her head in the sunlight. (I had noticed the white in her tail while she flew ahead of me close to the road.) Glorious sight to behold on that sunny but cold winter morning in beautiful northeast Texas.

Right after it flew away, a second eagle flew up out of my neighbor's tree to join it, I hadn't even noticed that one. Very exciting for me! I've seen them a few times around Lake Houston, but never in my yard. Absolutely beautiful birds, what a thrill for Halloween!

We have sighted 3 this summer 2015 in east Texas. 2 mature and 1 immature. The 2 mature were next to our pond at the same time. We have pictures. They have been back several times individually. Flew low right beside our house with a fish. Most beautiful living bird I have ever seen.

My son and I saw a bald eagle in the East end of League City, Texas on February 12. It was circling over and then landed on the shore of one of the man-made lakes along Austin St within an incomplete section of a neighborhood. I couldn't get close enough to see for sure, but it looked like it was eating a fish or something. When he finished he took off and flew away towards the West.

Saturday, January 24, 2015. On our pontoon boat on Canyon Lake, TX. We spotted two bald eagles, which shocked and amazed us. Using a telephoto lens on the camera, we verified it was a pair of bald eagles! Then three more showed up and flew around a bit and then flew away. One appeared to make a dive for a fish dinner, but it was hard to see from a distance with the sun setting directly behind it. We were thrilled and can't wait to see more next Saturday, if they are still hanging around the lake.

I sighted a lone adult bald eagle roosting in an oak tree in the yard of our lakefront lot on the south shore of Lake Cypress Springs on January 18, 2015. It was looking away from me out toward the lake and was not bothered by me walking out on my deck to take several photos. Finally, I saw it take off and fly across the lake.

Seen just east of Brookshire, TX the morning of 1/16/15. Just south of I-10 on Woods Road. What an amazing sight and special treat on the way to work.

I live in Sugar Land Texas. I saw a bald eagle flying over highway 59. my daughter spotted it first and I started to make fun of her and then when I look closely I realize that it was indeed a bald eagle! What an amazing thing to see! I've lived in Houston area my entire life and I have never ever seen a bald eagle. date January 13th 2015

I'm at Echo Lake in Murchison Texas and the Eagle was just in my yard! Amazing!

I sighted this Juvenile Bald Eagle soaring above campsite 41 at Magnolia Ridge COE Park on January 7th, 2015. At the same time witnessed a pair of mature eagles soaring far above, and too far to decently photograph. after about 15 minutes the disappeared to the Niches Rive area North of Lake Steinhagen. I have watched for several weeks for them to return, to no avail, and will continue to do so as long as possible.

I spotted a bald eagle in a large tree along White Oak Bayou in Houston, TX at 11:30 am on January 5, 2015. It sat in the tree for a long time, and when it took flight I saw its massive wing span. I had heard of sightings on White Oak Bayou recently,but couldn't believe I actually saw one!

I saw a single, beautiful Bald Eagle flying around over the golf course/Almeda area of Hermann Park in Houston, TX this morning January 4th, 2015 at 9:20am. I watched him fly and swoop around for about 4 or 5 minutes until he finally flew off to the right over the highway and disappeared. The whole time I was thinking, What! A bald eagle in Texas! But apparently so. His head and tail were shining brilliantly white in the bright sunshine!
I was watching out the window of my apt at Marquis Lofts, which looks out over the park.

Bald eagle shown in this picture was spotted in West Columbia, TX near the intersection of County Road 450 and Old Damon Rd on Dec. 23, 2014 at 11am. It flew down onto this fence post as we drove by as stayed there as we passed.
I saw one of similar size at this location (perhaps the same one) on Nov. 27, 2014.

I saw what I believe to be an immature bald eagle at 31deg. 59' 25" N, 95 deg. 52' 39" W between Cayuga and Bradford in northern Anderson county Saturday, December 20, 2014 about 3:30 in the afternoon. It was feeding on a roadkilled hog. I had seen a similar or perhaps the same bird some weeks earlier just below the Richland-Chambers dam.

Floresville, Texas
I saw a pair of bald eagles on December 11, 2014. They were in our hay field behind my house. I tried to photograph them but didn't get the camera soon enough. I did get to watch them for maybe 30 seconds. I believe they were eating an egret. I hope to see them again.

Saw a pair of Bald Eagles in Texas at the Matagorda/Wharton County Line at about 4:30 pm
Linda Torrez Spotted 2 bald eagles in South Austin this morning (11/30/2014). They were sitting on telephone poll span and one set off flying over an open field. I have lived in Austin since 1984 and this is the first time I have ever seen them in Austin (or Texas for that matter). It was frankly thrilling.

9/25/14 San Antonio, TX - was shocked today when I scared a bald eagle out of the road in my neighborhood in Northeast San Antonio by the TPC Marriott. It was eating a dead opossum, road kill. It flew into a nearby tree and just watched me for a couple minutes. I went back for my camera, but I was unable to locate it again when I returned. It flew into a grove of trees that hid it from my view. It was beautiful, full grown with a white head and tail. It was larger than the vulture that was sharing the food.
Connie Tuchman

There is an entire group of bald eagles that you will almost surely see if you look along the small hwy that runs from Brundage Tx to Crystal City TX. On my daily commute I usually see between one to three of them after I turn from Brundage going to Crystal City. From about 1-5 mile after the turn off of State Hwy 85 at Brundage is where they are seen.

Amazing! A BEAUITFUL Bald Eagle was sighted at my ranch at Winnsboro, Tx on Nov. 13th. He landed on top of a larger dead oak tree above my pond. He than flew down picked him self up a large fish and flew across my pasture with it heading north. This was my first ever sighting of a wild bird. I was able to get some pictures and was truly amazed how large of a bird they are!
Bobbie Hodges

About 1100am I saw a bald eagle fly through my back yard. I was about 50-60 feet from it. I live in Love Oak, Texas about 15 minutes from downtown San Antonio. This was my second sighting of a bald eagle in my backyard. The first was about 8 years ago.

I was jogging along the stretch of the Brays Bayou hike and bike trail between Buffalo Speedway and Bevlyn Drive just about 30 minutes ago, when a huge adult bald eagle flew from the bayou in a southeasterly direction (toward me). I have never seen a bald eagle in this area before. Since I was jogging, I did not have a camera on me, unfortunately.
I hope that the bird returns! It was magnificent!

October 25, 2014 – I saw a bald eagle sitting at the top of a metal power pole/tower overlooking a retention pond at Westpark Tollway between the Eldridge exit and Hwy 6 exit in Houston. I had my camera in the car, so circled around and got several pictures of this amazing bird. It must be the same one referenced in the previous note of September 27 by Jim Recer at the same location. Wow! What an amazing thing to see here…I had no idea!
Betsy Cross

I saw my very first bald eagle in the wild today it was beautiful. I live in Columbia Lakes subdivision in West Columbia off HWY 35.

I just saw two fully mature bald eagles on a vacant lot in Fairhaven Estates off of Schiel road in Cypress, Texas. Harris County. They were on the lot. When they took off one of them had a small animal in its talons. Looked like a mole. It was awesome to see.

I observed two adult bald eagles about 8 miles south of Columbus, Texas, today Friday 19 September 2014. I was driving home and they flew across a pond and into some large oak trees. I stopped but could not see them.

I saw two bald eagles approx. 7 miles SE of La Vernia, Texas, about 11 a.m. on the morning of Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014. The eagles appeared to be adults, having typical full grown markings, white head, large brown body, white on tail fan, large wing span. The pair flew together between stands of oak trees over farmland. I got to within approx. 200 feet when they crested a stand of oaks and spooked a hawk, who flew away very quickly. I have never seen bald eagles or even expected to see bald eagles that day.

ON 09/15/14, a lone bald eagle sat in a cypress tree while I took pictures for about 20 minutes this morning not long after dawn - just off the Lake O’ Pines RV park (Lake O’ the Pines, Texas).

9/11 @ 11:00 a.m I noticed the resident black bellied whistlers and cattle birds all in a panic on the small lake at the Ron Whitson Ag Science Center in Rendon, Tx. That's when I noticed a bald eagle on the shoreline. Before I could get a picture, recess started at Tarver Rendon elementary school and the eagle left. The ag center is located in Rendon and part of Mansfield ISD between Mansfield and Burleson off of 1187. Special treat on a memorable day in our Nations history.

My husband and I just spotted a bald eagle on Hwy. 59 in Fannin, Texas at around 1:30 pm. He was roosting in a dead tree. I thought my husband was crazy, so he turned the car around and sure enough there he was in all his splendor. I tried to take a picture, but he flew off. It was amazing.

We sighted a bald eagle at I20 and Beltline Rd in the Grand Prairie/Cedar Hill area at around 4 pm today. It was very exciting to see this bird in the wild and so close up. He was flying low over stopped traffic heading into the hills.

I saw 3 bald eagles flying South over head in San Antonio, Texas above HEB Alon Market off of NW Military & Wurzbach Pkwy on 1/16/14. What an incredible sight to see!!! I feel so very blessed!

We spotted a bald eagle on two occasions very close to our house in Houston, TX (77095). My wife and daughter saw one on January 2nd while walking the dogs around the horse pen creek lake behind our house (corner of Barker Cypress Rd and West Rd), and I saw one myself 2 days later on the 4th.
Not sure if it was the same one. My wife described the one they saw sitting on the ground, picking at something, as quite a bit bigger as the one I saw gliding over the lake.
There were quite a few people around on both occasions and with help of google on the iphones, the identity was quickly established.
Willem van Adrichem

We saw a bald eagle on the way to church this morning. It was located on FM 787 near Rye, TX.

Jan 5. 8am. Bald Eagle observed flying over Cattail Pond, Cedar Ridge Preserve, Dallas Texas (I was hiking at Cedar Ridge Preserve)
Deborah Nelson

I saw a bald eagle today at LNVA in Beaumont, Texas. It first stopped at the lake (probably looking for trout since the lake was stocked recently). An osprey had been fishing for trout in the same area so when it saw the eagle land on it's tree it chased it away. I have it in video. At this point I did not know it was a bald eagle. I decided to walk around the lake to get another video of the osprey fishing and when I was walking with my camera, I turned to where the bird the osprey chased off was and saw the bald eagle close up. I was recording with an iPhone so the quality of the video is not good but I am glad I have it in camera!
