Bald eagle, Image created by Hope Rutledge

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 :)

Thursday, Jan. 2, 2015 - Took my grandsons (ages 9 & 10) for a ride along the Sandusky River in Seneca and Sandusky counties in Ohio. I drove out River Road (North Twp Rd 73) past the Tiffin Development Center. Ive seen an eagle in this area. As I started to tell the boys to look upward towards the treetops, they both began yelling, "Grandma! I just saw them! There's two of them! They're in that tree!"
I turned the car around and pulled off the road close to where the boys saw them. How majestic they were, each perched on a branch in a tree across the river. One flew off the branch but returned shortly. I felt we were interrupting their "fishing" trip so we didn't stay long.
Definitely a memorable day! :)

12/31/14, 4:45PM, Licking County, OH.
I was driving northbound on Cherry Valley Rd. Leaving Newark and heading into Granville. As I was beginning to cross the bridge over the creek, I looked to my right and observed a Bald Eagle in flight. It landed in a tree on the north bank of the creek. I then pulled into a church parking lot and observed the bird perched in the tree for a moment. I wanted to stay longer to observe, but my family insisted that I get them to the restaurant because they were all hungry. This is the first time I have ever seen a Bald Eagle in the wild.

I spotted a juvenile bald eagle sitting in a tree off SR 95 near Lucerne Rd. about 8am on 12-23-14. Then, on Christmas Eve, about 4pm, we saw a mature adult flying over north over Knox Lake, off Shultz Rd. Fredericktown, Ohio. Always amazing and Awesome!!

I spotted a bald eagle at the corner of Auld Road and Children's Home - Bradford Road just outside of Gettysburg, OH. Wasn't close enough to tell whether it was a male or female. It landed and picked up a carcass off the road, then flew north around a stand of woods and I lost sight of it. I know there is a pair in Troy, Ohio, but this is the first time I have heard of one in Darke County, Ohio.
Jacob Minnich

Columbus, Ohio on the Scioto River about 2 miles north of downtown.
On the river fishing in the inlets and saw one bald eagle flying overhead. Second time I have seen one in this location, around the same time in the day too. Eagle was circling over inlet shorelines just working its way north up the river. Got a chance to take a video which is hard to identify, but was really an awesome thing to see one flying right overhead about 40-50 feet in the air. Last sighting I was quite a distance away but noticed the white head. This time I was 100% sure. Majestic. USA.

Warren County Ohio. Spotted a juvenile eagle alongside Great Miami river on SR 73 between Middletown and Franklin. Noticed a large dark bird high in tree along river and as I drove bye caught the glistening white head. Turned car around to show kids. Never thought we would see anything like that here.
