Jean Carnell wrote the following: 10/5/15 6:00pm I spotted a bald eagle flying from the west toward the hills above Canyon Heights and Pickering Ave.in Fremont, CA. It soared across the front of the hills where normally hawks and turkey vultures swoop to hunt, and then it went up and over to the Vargas Plateau. I ran to get my binoculars to definitely see the white head and tail through my binocs. Lucky me!
Shylyn Young wrote the following: Friday, September 26, 2015 @ 2:45pm. Spotted flying westerly at the southern end of Lexington Reservoir. I had to do a triple take. "A bald eagle? No way!" Unfortunately the bird looked a bit ragged and disheveled with a few missing wing feathers. Still majestic and beautiful though.
On Feb 11 at 12 noon, I saw 2 adult Bald Eagles in flight within about 20 ft of each other at the same elevation heading in the same direction kind of side-by-side, as if in formation, and vocalizing, presumably to each other. They flew over Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve in California (Contra Costa County, I think) going northwest in the direction of the Lafayette Reservoir or possibly the Briones Reservoir.
On the same day I also saw 2 dark eagles, almost certainly juvenile, perched on the microwave towers at the same preserve. They eventually flew off and had the classic eagle profile in flight. I only had binoculars, but I clearly saw their tarsi which were yellow and unbooted i.e. no feathering on the tarsi. Otherwise they were mainly very dark except for pale grayish under-feathers on the breast. Given lighting and high contrast conditions and the distance, it was hard to discern other markings.
I saw a bald eagle flying through Portola Valley in Santa Clara CA at 8:15am on Feb 6, 2015.
We saw 2 bald eagles flying near the truck scales at Truckee, California on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 at 8:45am and it was amazing. They are so beautiful. We have only seen them in captivity. We have only seen them in the wild in Alaska.
My wife and I saw a female Bald Eagle while driving on east California State Route 46, about 5 miles west of Shandon, in central California. This occurred on Monday February 2, 2015 at about 3:30 PM. Weather-72 degrees, wind-calm, sky-clear. She was sitting in open rangeland on some low foothills to the south of the road about 1/4 mile. We stopped and observed her for about 5 minutes during which she flew around and sat down once again about 1/2 mile east of that point. Her markings were unmistakably those of a Bald Eagle. She rose for a second time and flew northwest until we couldn’t see her any longer.
wanted to report spotting a pair of bald eagles flying around while I was hiking at Anderson Dam in Morgan Hill, Ca. on Jan 23rd time was 1:30pm. Rangers said they have seen them as well. This is the second time seeing the two and hope to get lucky again.
