I live in the eastern part of Kansas. I have been observing Bald Eagles in our area for two years now. The second week of January 2015 at Melvern Lake, Melvern Kansas, I viewed 12 Eagles within a few yards of my vehicle. They were hunting/ fishing in the lake and engaging in squabbles with other birds. I also have noticed at Pomona Lake and the area, in which I live, Eagles. There were 3 at Pomona Lake. I had one fly right through my front yard area here in the country between Ottawa, Ks and Pomona, Ks. This year I have seen more Eagles than last year, giving me hope that their numbers are rebounding.
Ten bald eagles in a southern suburb of Kansas City. We are near a river and the property owners have a large pond with geese and seagulls and of course, lots of fish.
I just saw 3 eagles in the trees to the East of 18th Street on hte Kansas River in KCK
My husband and I observed a mature bald eagle flying in front of our house this morning, December 28, 2014.
We live about 3 miles south of Topeka, Kansas, in a rural area.
It was glorious to get a clear view of an eagle here. We think we have seen them in the area before, but never could be sure until this one, which was very close and allowed us to see the white tail and white head. We are not near any lakes or rivers, only numerous small farm ponds, The immediate surrounding area is a cattle ranch, a prairie remnant, wooded areas and rural residential acreages.

During the past week, on 12-20-14 and again on Christmas Day, I saw I from four to six individual bald eagles at Pomona Lake in Osage County, KS. They ranged in appearance from what appeared to be a yearling (brown with totally black beak, minimal white streaks on chest) to one or two with adult plumage. It was a fantastic experience.
Additionally, about six weeks ago, I spotted a pair of adults soaring above Highway 70 between Lawrence and Bonner Springs, KS.

There is an adult and juvenile in my back yard below Rocky Ford Dam along the Blue River in Manhattan Kansas.
What a joy to see these birds just outside my living room. To cool!
I have seen several bald eagles in Chautauqua County, Kansas (southeastern Kansas) and in Washington County, Oklahoma (northeastern Oklahoma) this year. I also have photos.
Drove past a bald eagle feasting on something on the shoulder of hwy 56, east of Marion, KS on January 10 at 4:30pm. When I saw it from a distance I commented "that big hawk must have found something good". Upon approaching I realized it was actually a bald eagle! Very excited to see, but worried me, it being so close to the highway!

I saw a group of 6 or 7 bald eagles around 5:00 PM today while northbound on I-35 about 10 miles east of Beto Junction. An adult was soaring above the side of the road and the others were in a cluster of trees two hundred yards or so off the highway. There may have been some immature eagles in the group. The adults really stood out to me because of their size and extremely white heads and necks. The one in flight looked huge and I could clearly see its white tail feathers. I drive this stretch of road often and enjoy seeing all the hawks. When I saw the eagles I immediately thought "those sure aren't hawks"--they're so much larger and the white heads really catch your attention. Beautiful birds!
I just had a pair of bald eagles fly over my house in Kansas City, KS at 11:40 AM CST on 12/29/2013. They were high in the air, gently circling and in general moving from North to South riding a strong northerly wind. I live near I-435 and Leavenworth Rd., zip code 66109.
