ryan accord a wrote the following: 6 bald eagles were seen flying above south moutain in Boosboro Md near the Washington Monument. I observed them gliding in loose circles chirping with each other. White heads and white tails made me grab the binoculars. I only saw them for a few minutes before they went over the mountain towards Middletown Md. This was my first time seeing bald eagles in the wild. I can't believe there were so many

Just saw a bald eagle fly over - was in Towson, MD at corner of E. Seminary Ave. and Dulaney Valley Road. This is near Loch Raven Reservoir.

Heather Fitzgerald wrote the following: Sunday morning on October 04, 2015 I looked out the sliding door at the dinning room and saw an adult eagle. I went to get my camera to take pictures but only got a few of it flying away. Thinking I missed a great photo-op we went on with our morning. About 45 minutes later 2 big brown and white spotted birds were in the same spot. I looked up information on your page and quickly realized that we were being visited by immature eagles. They hung around for over an hour and half, giving me plenty of time to take pictures of them. They flew off and perched on a branch in a nearby tree. We will be keeping our eye to the sky in hopes of a return visit from these beautiful birds.

A bald eagle landed in the trees and stayed long enough for me to get my camera out and take a few photos. My husband, my sons and I watched him as he took flight and soared away. Amazing sight!

Beautiful, large, white head, black wings and body underside, tail I believe white too. I haf to take a double look as we have so many turkey buzzards, but truly this looked like a bald eagle...has there been any other sightings in this area. I sit out a lot and enjoy in my backyard, but this a first.

Saw a bald eagle perched high in a tree just east of Grenville Rd on the south side of RT 450 in Bowie, MD, today 2/14/15 at noon. Odd to see one there, so I did another pass just to be sure. So exciting!

Woodbine Maryland 21797 on 9 February 2015 at 1300. Eagle has been in the area for about a week scouring the area for small game and perhaps feeding off a nearby small deer carcass.

I wanted to share, what to me, was truly a right place at the right time moment.
I live in Riverdale, MD, and was driving my son to school on the morning of 2/5/2015, about 8:50am. I was heading east on River Road towards Kenilworth Ave., and happened to look and see a large bird circling, he began to descend talons extended and scooped up a rat and flew off with it. I saw his white head and tail and was in awe that it was a bald eagle! I thought maybe he made off with a squirrel, but the long; straight tail left no doubt it was a rat. I feel very blessed to have witnessed this magnificent creature hunting for his breakfast.

At 12:20 PM today spotted Bald Eagle in tree at Hawthorne Park (close to Coralthorn Rd)on Middle River in Baltimore County, 21220. Flew off down river. Beautiful!

I'm pretty sure I see one or two eagles on the electrical towers on the north side of the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel Thruway mostly every weekday around 4:45 p.m. Yesterday I saw three. Thinking it’s too good to be true and not trusting my own judgement, I had my bird-loving sister and nephew confirm that they were definitely eagles.

I live in Sylvan Shores (Riva) just south of Annapolis, a few houses away from the South River. I have only seen bald eagles in the wild when I lived in Washington State. This past Sunday, as I returned from an errand, caught something big out of the corner of my eye, swoop down behind my neighbor's house and perch on a tree on the other side of the house. We normally have Ospreys in the area but this was a bald eagle. I showed my 11 year old son and he says "I told you we saw a bald eagle the other day". I hadn't believed him. So I grab my phone to take a picture, sneak around the other side of my neighbors house, and when I turn the corner to get a view, there were 4 bald eagles in the same tree. Before I could get a picture they scattered. I was able to find two of them a block further down and get a picture of 2 of them in the same tree. Was amazed and have been looking for them each day since.

My daughter Terri is shocked to say she just saw a bald eagle fly over our back yard. We live in Columbia, Maryland.

Pretty sure I saw a bald eagle around 10:30 am on route 370 in Rockville MD heading west to Sam Eig road. Flew off the ground and perched on a tree. I think it was eating something on the side of the road. Turned it's head over its left shoulder, very noble looking. Very impressive.

Saw a Bald Eagle fly over College Gardens ES in Rockville MD on Friday Jan 9th 2014. I was surprised to see one at work. I live in WV on a river and am used to seeing them there.

Saw a bald eagle this morning flying low and parallel to I-95 (flying south!) south of the tunnels, just before the signs for Caton Ave :)

I wanted to report that I saw a magnificent specimen perched on a low branch about 100 yards off Rt. 198 in Spencerville, MD 20868. It seemed most unusual to me, especially since there is no major river in the immediate vicinity, but there are a lot of tall trees that remain courtesy of the Mennonites who settled this area. I parked my car and endeavored to approach on foot, getting to within about 25 yards before it calmly departed, giving me a memorable view of its awesome wing span. I could hope they might be nesting in this area?

At about 8am on December31, 2014, I caught some erratic movement in the corner of my eye as I passed by the window which overlooks Little Bear Creek in Edgewater, Maryland. Looking closer I realized that an eagle was chasing a small flock of Bufflehead. It was a very large bird, mottled brown and it was determined to have a meal. He dove at the Bufflehead, and the Bufflehead dove under the water which is about 10' deep there. The eagle would hover, wait for the ducks to surface and try again. While he never really touched the water, he maintained a very close distance to the surface, rise about 6 to 8 feet and circle again. If the eagle flew off more than 5 to 10 yards the Bufflehead would surface and a few would take off like a shot in the opposite direction staying very close to the surface of the water. This drama lasted for at least 5 minutes until the last Bufflehead made its escape. I wanted to grab my camera but it was not close by and I didn't want to miss a thing. I did have a good pair of binoculars which I keep next to the window and could watch the whole episode close up.
The Little Bear Creek borders Camp Letts and eagle sightings are not uncommon. I've a few photos of one in a high tree overlooking the creek that I took a few months ago. Regrettably, the photos are not prize winners as he was too far away but very recognizable.
I believe it was a Golden as there were no white markings anywhere and its color was a mottled brown. This was not a small bird - its large size probably saved a Bufflehead from becoming breakfast. It was extremely agile for its size and very determined. The energy he expended over those minutes must have been substantial as he flew up into one of the bordering tree and rested for a time afterwards.
Happy New Year to you all,

Saw 3 bald eagles, at least one was mature and one a juvenile SE of Sharpsburg MD on Route 34 (Shepherdstown Pike) in a field near the Mount Airy historic home on December 30th, 2014 around 11:30am. They were seen from the historical marking pull off and were close enough for some nice photos.

There is a mature bald eagle and two juveniles that can commonly be seen at low tide on Defense Highway (Route 450) where the road crosses the South River near Annapolis. I have seen them half a dozen times in the last few weeks. Beautiful!

I just saw a bald eagle with a large number of crows feasting on a deer carcass in a farm field on Greenspring Avenue below Greenspring Valley Road in Baltimore County, Maryland. I have never seen one in the area!

On December 20, 3014 I saw a mature bald Eagle flying above the Monocacy River at the Maryland Highway 144 crossing just east of Frederick.

Pretty sure we saw a Bald Eagle this morning on Lake Elkhorn in Columbia, MD. It had ben feeding on a goose carcass that had been lying on an artificial island, and flew up to roost in a tree.
