I am a police officer in the city of Raymond, MS. I was driving on patrol down Port Gibson St. when a bald eagle flew across my path and landed on a tree branch. I pulled over and observed it for a few moments but when I exited my patrol car to take a picture it flew away to the East. Huge bird. Only other one I have ever seen was in the delta several years ago.

The water is low and at first I thought it was some strange kind of goose. But when I stopped the car to take a better look the eagle took wing and soared right past me.

Saw a lone bald eagle just north of Cotton Plant MS. Jan. 25, 2014. He or she was sitting in the upper part of a dead tree just across the RR track which parallels Hwy 15 about 10 am.

We have been seeing a bald eagle for four or five days east of Bruce. The eagle was eating armadillo carcasses. Amazing beautiful bird

I was at the MS Visitor Center in Vicksburg today and saw a single Bald Eagle flying the shoreline of the Mississippi River about 15 feet above the treeline. I spotted it on the north side of the bridge and it flew into the tree line of the south side of the bridge. It’s wingspan was incredible as it glided through the air.

Three of us spotted a bald eagle at Snow Lake Shores of Benton County in Northern Mississippi on October 30th, 2014. The eagle was perched atop a tall dead tree overlooking Snow Lake's middle finger only about 250 yards from my home. I did view it with binoculars, but it flew away while I was inside preparing my long range camera lens.

I was traveling down JQ West Rd between Como and Sardis in Panola County, Mississippi when I saw a bald eagle amongst some smaller birds eating roadkill. He flew away, but came right back. I circled around and as he flew away, I snapped a decent picture. I have never seen one in the wild, and this was a real honor.

   On February 8th, 2014 around 3:15 pm on my way to Meridian, MS on Hwy 45 heading northbound. The Bald Eagle was swooping down in the median on Hwy 45 about midway between Quitman and Meridian. (approx. 12 miles south of Meridian I-20/59). It appeared very large such as a female. There was another bird similar but smaller above the trees on the west side of the road about 20-30 yards in from the highway. May have been a male but I could not see well enough to the other side of the highway by the time I noticed the 2nd bird. At first glance I assumed it was a hawk as they are in great abundance in Misissippi. As we approached and drove past, it's white tail was fanned out as it was gliding full spread close to the ground westerly away from us in the direction of the other bird and you could also see it's head was white. That's when I realized it was a Bald Eagle purely by surprise. Amazing.
   This was my first sighting purely by accident of a Bald Eagle in the wild. It really is an amazing beautiful bird to see in the wild.

Pascagoula, MsThursday, January 9, 2014 at 2:00 pm, 15-17 miles south of West Point, MS, the west side of Hwy 45, a single bald eagle perched atop a tree just on the side of the highway. A logging truck roared by causing the eagle to fly about 100 yards inward perching atop a tree overlooking a field.
