Richard Drouhard wrote the following: Although we have been had occasional sightings of eagles for several years near our home outside of Lucas Ohio, the sightings have become daily occurrences. We now have five eagles which regularly visit us, there are two adults and three younger ones. Of the younger birds, one is tagged. I can't say for sure but it appears to be number N-3.

Dick Drouhard wrote the following: I live in central Ohio. I believe I spotted K-3 (Thunderbird?) Saturday morning. It was crazy, I had seen two buzzards sitting in my recently harvested bean field, not fifty yards from my house. Also present was three crows and I could see that they were giving someone hell. upon closer examination I saw what the fuss was about, there in the middle of the other birds was a good sized hawk eating a very young groundhog (wasn't a baby but not full grown). The crows were raising hell but were keeping their distance, the buzzards were just hanging close by. I watched for about ten minutes. Suddenly the buzzards took off and very soon after so did the crows. Next thing I knew a beautiful fully mature eagle passed over very low, maybe 4 to 5 ft off the ground then raised and came back in, of course the hawk skedaddled in short order as the eagle came back in and landed, how majestic was this sight, absolutely beautiful! I don't have a decent camera but got some pretty decent pictures with my cell phone. I watched this bird eat for a good half and hour when he started screeching and within a few minutes two young eagles came in and ate some of the kill, the adult perched in a near by tree while they tore at and ate the carcass. One of the young birds had a tag attached I believe it was K3 but not certain. All together they were here for about three hours. We have had a lot of sighting here over the last few years but nothing like this. They do perch in the trees near and around my house often.

Our approach made it take to the air. We stopped thinking it might come back for a picture but it continued to circle and move north. This was my first sighting in Van Wert county.

M Smith wrote the following: Two bald eagles west of Ashland, OH spotted on 9/22/15. They were circling and looking for a meal and spent 15-30 minutes in the area flying over open fields, ponds and tree tops. We have lived here three years and this is our first siting.

I saw a Bald Eagle, for the first time in my life, in my backyard in Canal Fulton, Ohio on 8/21/15. It was beautiful! It was so low I could see everything about it (about as low as my roof). It soared over the pond and took off. Just amazing! I included two pictures I was able to get of it.

Canoeing along the Licking River we saw two bald eagles! They were in the area between Staddens Bridge Road and Brownsville Road on 8/23/2015 around 3:00pm. I'm not sure if they were a couple as we spotted them several minutes apart.

Celina, Ohio on Grand Lake. The past two days as I sat on my deck in the mornings I had a young bald eagle pass right by, flying low but along the water edge. White tail, white head and yellow beck... Then again this morning a larger eagle was sitting on the rocks next to the lake eating something then spread his wings and flew low across the lake headed south.
Awesome feeling to see one in the wild, I have only seen in the zoo before this week....

I live on Paint Creek State Park so I've observed bald eagles here and close by in Ross county. Yesterday, I was driving through Fort Ancient, Ohio (very close to Clarksville) and observed a bald eagle in the woods. I had never spotted one there; what a thrill!

I travel along the Muskingum River on SR 60 from Beverly to Zanesville to work each day. I see 4 bald eagles on average each morning. There are often times 4 eagles around the Rokeby lock area on the river. Eagles can be seen perched or flying over the river. Another area that eagles are common is between the Beverly dam and the Muskingum River Power Plant. When the river is iced over the Muskingum River power plant is a great spot to see eagles.

I saw an eagle on Jan 24, 2015 at the Fairfield/Licking Co line. along a cornfield at the corner of Blacklick Rd. and Basil Rd/York Rd. I turned left from Basil Rd NW onto Blacklick Rd and started to head west when something caught my eye to the right. I was blown away to see it was a Bald Eagle flying parallel with me. It was beautiful!! Just like the eagle picture I have above my fireplace with the bible verse Isaiah 40:31. This was my first siting. It landed in a tree top on the edge of the field. I pulled over to watch it and to make sure I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. He perched in the tree for a few moments before taking off and flying around the field a couple of times then heading northwest out of site.

Allen County, OH. I live east of Lima, OH at the edge of a small housing development, with a woods directly behind my house. Over the past 2 weeks I have seen a bald eagle fly over the woods on 2 occasions. Then on January 17, 2015, a bald eagle was perched high in a tree, on a limb that hung out over my lawn. I watched it from my back window with binoculars. When I drove away about an hour later, the eagle stayed. On January 18, 2015 I saw an immature bald eagle perched in another tree about 50 yards from where the eagle perched the day before. It flew away shortly after I spotted it, and about 5 minutes later the mature bald eagle was back sitting on the same branch where it had perched the day before. I had more time to watch it that afternoon. Mostly it sat still other than for turning its head. But it did preen itself briefly, stretched out its left wing, then lowered its wing and vibrated its body as though to get all the feathers readjusted. Later, it leaned its head down, raised its tail, then pooped! Watching it was fascinating. Early the next afternoon January 19, the eagle was back, and this time stayed for several hours. At one time it turned completely around, and faced the opposite direction, but I didn't observe other activity. Today (January 20), I have not seen the eagle at all. But for 3 days it was quite thrilling.

My husband has seen a bald eagle twice this week around our home in Van Wert, OH. (35 miles south-east of Ft W, IN. We live in the city limits, but on the edge of town.) He came in the morning of 1/8/15 from taking out our dog and was excited about having seen the eagle flying close by. (Ok, I half wondered if maybe my husband was imagining things! lol But I have heard of sighting near lakes in IN, not that far from here, so thought it might not be impossible). Then the next afternoon, 1/9/15, my husband and the man picking up our recycles saw it again.

Sighting January 9, 2014 in a field in Akron Ohio, landed on turkey carcass I threw out for the crows. About 50 feet from my window away, so majestic, lived in ohio all my life and I am truly blessed to have seen him... I call him Fitz!

I had a bald eagle sighting at my house on Friday afternoon.
I had no idea eagles were so close by, the only next I was aware of is at Eastwood lake, and REALLY hard to see!
Note: at first I thought I had a pair of juveniles but later I figured out I had a juvenile and an adult right out behind the house, and the second adult farther down river in a big sycamore tree. It was breathtaking to see them fly in , settle on a big poplar branch outside the dining room window, and stay for most of the afternoon :)
