Dec. 29, Saw pair of bald eagles flying by levee

On Nov. 23 we were on Hwy 65 and there was a big beautiful bald eagle perched on a tree that could not be missed in Leslie Arkansas. This was my very first time to see one besides in a zoo.

We had 2 bald eagles on our lake today near the Arkansas River in Lavaca, AR in Sebastian County. They were on a tree sticking out of the water. One flew off and then another a few seconds later. The second one looked like he had a snake in his mouth. They both flew up to a tree close by and ate the snake. Totally Awesome to see these beautiful bald eagles so close to our home!

My husband and I have a habit - every sunday we go for a drive around a local small lake that was once a limestone quarry. Lake Atalanta in Rogers, AR. The last three sundays, we've been honored to see one or two bald eagles. Some perched high in the trees above the lake, but today we watched one doing the evening fishing. Of course, this was one of those occassions where I didn't have the camera ready but I love watching the bald eagles. We often see an uptick in eagle spotting around this time of year - they do seem to love wintering around the Beaver Lake area and, of course, around the State-run fishery in Centerton... never pass up a massive feeding opportunity!

1/27/13 Rhea, Arkansas - near Prairie Grove and Lincoln.
We live on a ridge overlooking CR 33 near Lincoln Lake in the Rhea community. We saw hundreds of bald eagles yesterday circling in the sky. Today they are up and down the valley sitting in trees, on the ground in groups, and some soaring. We’ve always seen a few this time a year, but never anything like this.

Sited two bald eagles on and island in lake hamilton, 11-20-11 two females, sat on a bare island { because the water is down in winter} They stayed very close to each other for about an hour. It was close to sun down. Haven't seen them since then. They had the white head & tail.

At first I thought I the bird was a buzzard which are common in this area and because of it's size. As I approached the bird, I saw that the head and neck of the bird were white and that it had white tail feathers. I slowed upon the approach and the eagle made flight towards the direction I was driving so I was able to see it for a good while before it flew past the treetops and out of my view. It was on Hwy. 46 North between Sheridan, Ar and Redfield, AR at about 7:45 am on 10/5/11. It was a beautiful and amazing sight - such a gift for my ride to work.

My friend and I saw a lone bald eagle on January 4th while visiting Lake Bennett in Woolly Hollow State Park near Greenbrier, AR. The lake is quite low and the eagle flew over our heads from the dam area towards the wooded area above us. It's white head and tail were clearly visible. Unsure whether male or female.

My husband and I had the distinct pleasure of getting to observe a beautiful Bald Eagle just to the east of our home. He (or she?) was perched in a dead tree that is in the shallow end of a pond, just off the highway. We pulled into a drive way that runs beside the pond and watched this awesome bird for several minutes. He showed no inclination to fly away, it was wonderful!! Of course I didn't have my camera with me and completely forgot my cell phone camera. This is only the second time I've had the chance to see one and the other one was quite some distance away. To be able to view this wonderful creature so close up was amazing.
The sighting took place approximately 2 1/2 miles west of Arkansas Highway 220W (aka Uniontown Highway). The Eagle was on the north side of the highway. This area is located just north of Van Buren, Crawford County, Arkansas. I can get you the exact street address if you need it.
I'm still thrilled with being able to observe the beautiful symbol of our great nation!

Saw a bald eagle having a meal in Cabot (Lonoke County) 1/1/09 on someone's front lawn (large property). It took flight after a few minutes of our sighting and 4 waiting crows likely got what was left.
Also saw a bald eagle in the same general vicinity a few months earlier, can't remember the day – maybe October 08.
