Sunday December 1st at 4:45pm A single bald eagle was flying south over 6211 FM 1960 W Houston, TX 77069. Located in Northwest Harris County.
On 11/29/13 at approximately 4:00 P.M. I saw a Bald Eagle flying above the Frio River on a ranch in Real County, about 11 miles north of Leakey. I had a good view of it, have watched Bald Eagles at Lake Buchanan in the past. I know it was NOT a Cara Cara, too small, NO White on wing tips, absolutely breath-taking!
Today, in spite of the lousy weather, we drove over to Lake Livingston State Park, near Livingston, Texas. We were having rain mixed with snow. There were no Eagles at our usual haunts, but, circling Pine Island, clear to see through binoculars was a lone adult Bald Eagle.
We spotted a bald eagle today, Tuesday November 26th, on the ice on Beaver Lake in Lattingtown Long Island New York. He flew off into the trees at the Beaver Dam Skating Club. Very cool.
November 19,2013. Lake Conroe Texas Harbour Town subdivision.
This pair first appeared on Veterans Day. They came back this afternoon. Their is also a much larger single eagle that was here on Veterans Day as well.

My husband and I spotted a bald eagle yesterday, Nov 15, 2013 about 10am, on the north side of highway 190 between Newton and Jasper almost to the county line. He was trying to take off with something large in his claws, but it was too large for him to fly. We watched him for a while and then left. About an hour later, we returned and he was still there...eating and trying to fly carrying his large lunch. He would eat some, then trying unsuccessfully to fly off with it. We watched for a while longer. He was amazing and the traffic did not seem to bother him. Only one other car stopped to watch. Most people did not even see him and he was in plain view.

Nov 6, 2013 On a late morning drive from San Antonio heading north toward Bulverde (near intersection of Blanco and Ashtree Roads, zip code 78163), saw a Bald Eagle in a field close to the road. I didn't know there were any around here – what a thrill!
Bald Eagle sighting today on Beltway 8 and CE King. It flew right over the Beltway while I was driving southbound around noon. SO so beautiful.....
10/30/2013 2:30pm until 3:30pm
Between Katy, TX and Brookshire, TX
I had the wonderful opportunity to spend and hour watching a majestic Bald Eagle keeping a watchful eye over a retention pond behind the old Igloo distribution building. I first noticed the Eagle as I was passing hovering over the water as if to be eyeing a meal. I turned around and to my amazement he (I presume) was perched on the power pole watching the pond. For an hour through rain, wind, then sunshine he sat unwavering. I had several phone calls to make, so I just watched and thought what a wonderful symbol of our country and freedom. I was able to get several photos of my experience.
I just had the awesome experience of seeing a majestic bald eagle flying low over the intersection of Harlem Rd and Plantation Rd of Pecan Grove in Richmond Tx. Brought tears to my eyes, so beautiful!

I was kayaking on Lake Bryan and spotted this bald eagle on the ground. When he moved and landed on an old pier post I was able to snap this awesome picture.
I occasionally see one or two bald eagles in Scottsville Tx. East Texas near Caddo Lake.
I spotted a pair of bald eagles at Lake Lavon just south of the Hwy 380 bridge between Princeton and Farmersville in Collin County, Texas. They were perched in some of the many dead trees in the lake about 50 yards from shore. I was riding my 4 wheeler with my two dog running beside me.
I would say that the larger of the two had a wing span around 4' to 5'. It was an awsome site.
We run this part of the lake almost every day. If I see them again, I will let you know.
I have seen 2 fully mature Bald Eagles in the last 2 weeks in the area west of Houston, Texas. And it is still only September!!
The first one I noticed was standing over what appeared to be a dead fish on the far bank of one of the Brdgeland Lakes in Cypress, Texas.
I thought it was unusual to see one at this time of the year here in Texas...but then yesterday, at about 2pm, I saw another fully grown Bald Eagle fly in and land in the middle of the pasture were longhorn cattle are kept south east of the intersection of the highway 99 and Interstate 10. Several cars stopped to watch as it seemed to drink water from a puddle about 30 yards off the roadway. Several of us took pictures with cell phones. I stayed long enough to watch it fly off into the west over the top of the Walmart and Katy Mills Mall. It continued meandering back and forth in the sky and finally dissapeared from my view as it flew towards the Brazos River bottom towards Brookshire.
I have seen actual fully mature bald Eagles only a hand full of time in my life living here in the Houston area, but this was the most awesome sighting I have ever had, he was very large and close enough to see his eyes, his exquisit beak and distinctly bold white head and tail, no mottled feathers at all, when it took off I judged its wingspan to be at least 7 feet across.

We live in Winona, Texas and a Bald Eagle flew right over our farm on the corner of FM 369 and FM 16 E. this occurred about 3 pm on Sunday, September 22, 2013.
It was amazing to see.
We have also had a Peregrine Falcon on our property...which we saw numerous times in July this year.
On Monday, September 16,2013 at approximately 5:15 PM my husband and I spotted a bald eagle perched atop a light standard on President George Bush Turnpike in Rowlett, Texas. The eagle was on the northbound side of the turnpike at TxDOT section 32 over Lake Ray Hubbard between the north shore and Interstate 30. It seems that because the water is so low on the lake that he may have been scanning the area for food. It would be really exciting if these beautiful creatures were to fill our skies again.
I just wanted to let some know that we have spotted and bald eagle in Amarillo, tx. It was once spoted across the street from Bell Helicopter and the second spotting was off of FM rd 228 and FM 2575 in the field on left hand side. We have noticed since the eagle has shown up that neightborhood cats are going missing. We were able to get some pictures of it. We stayed in our car and a good distance away from the eagle.

Feb 4th2013 in Humble TX near Kenswick and 1960. Looked up mowing the lawn and there was a bald eagle flying over my house looking down at me or maybe my cat! I see them along the Spring Creek trail from Jessie Jones to Punt Park this time of year (Saw 3 - 2 weeks ago on a rainy day along spring creek) but never expected to see one fly over my house so low in the middle of town. They are getting more used to people every year. Wow
I live in Spring, TX north of Houston... About two weeks ago I spotted an adult bald eagle in a clump of dead trees near our backyard. Since then I have taken photos of three different eagles perching in these trees. I have only observed the most mature eagle twice. There is a younger one that I have seen many times now. Recent days have revealed an even younger one... I can tell by the plumage of each of the eagles. The "middle" aged eagle is very recognizable because of his/her distinctive occasional brown feather markings on it's white head.

January 28, 2013 at 0730, saw a bald eagle near Humble, Texas (northeast Houston). Majestic bird!
Today, January 27, 2013, at about 1 p.m., I saw a pair of bald eagles near the intersection of FM 1960 & Cypress Woods Medical Drive, (northern part of Harris County) Houston, Texas. Before I saw either of them, I heard some bird sounds that I had not previously heard, so I was searching the surrounding tree tops & sky for whatever was making that sound. They flew from different directions and it was an awesome sight as they both landed atop a tall pine tree! Wish I'd had my camera!
On January 16, 2013 we saw both a Bald Eagle and a Golden Eagle at our ranch in East Texas. We are located North of Emory, Tx., in Saltillo, Tx. They stayed most of the day, and circled our lake on a regular basis. Our lake has tilapia, which will be getting sluggish and near the surface, with the colder weather. We saw the golden pick one fish off the surface, but then dropped it.
This has truly been a thrill to see!
January 7, 2013 Saw two bald eagles in the trees near the intersection of Gosling and Spring Stuebner Roads in NW Harris County=
My sons and I saw a pair of bald eagles this afternoon (12/28/12) just north of San Antonio in Bulverde Tx (78261). I'm no bird expert, but there was no mistaking them for the vultures and occasional hawks that normally fly overhead. They looked majestic! We live in a valley and the wind was gusting so they looked like they were just lazily playing in the air currents. I'll keep my camera handy today in case they pass overhead again. Very cool and a rare treat for the kids!
I saw a Bald Eagle on my ranch near Andice TX on December 30, 2012. It was perched in a tree next to my tank which is stocked with lots of fish. I looked all over the ranch for a nest, but did not find it. It must have come from somewhere else to fish.

At about 9am this morning (12-22-12) I walked out of my front door and was surprised to see what appeared to be a pair of bald eagles soaring right over my head! Although it's impossible to mistake a large bird, with a completely white head and bright yellow beak for anything other than a bald eagle, I still wanted to make sure, because the 2nd eagle was smaller in size and did not have a completely white head. From looking a the photos on your site and a few others it seems to match the pictures of younger bald eagles.
It was very exciting to just walk out my door and see them soaring right over me and my home! I live in the Katy area.
Brandie Kern from TX
Today on December 20, 2012 at approximately 15:30 my son and I saw a bald eagle soaring above our house in Spring Texas, 77379.
What an awesome & graceful creature!
I saw a Bald Eagle December 17 and 18th around 4pm from Lake Palo Pinto Causeway in Palo Pinto County, Texas. It was sitting on top of a dead tree in the water on the Lake Creek branch side of bridge. This was the first one I've ever seen in the wild, not really even looking, just on way home from work. Wow, I had to do another look then another to make sure, since we do have Ospreys in area but they don't have all white heads or tails...
December 17, 2012. 7:40 am on Ford Chapel Road, Lufkin, Texas (Angelina County). A beautiful way to start a Monday! It was eating roadkill on a bridge at the intersection of Ford Chapel and 1475. Huge, majestic and serene (even as it was feeding on an opossum). It flew away as I approached, giving me an amazing view of its wingspan and underside. Having lived here for 25 years, I was shocked to see it. Beautiful Creature.
I was in the backyard this morning around 8am when I heard an unusual bird call... looked up to a bald eagle sitting on the telephone pole. Grabbed my DSLR and snapped off a few photos... was just awesome!

Gonzales county Texas - 2 adults and 2 juveniles spotted
I just have to report the sighting of an eagle today because we don't get to see them
around here in the wild. So exciting for me! My husband and I were waiting in line
for our daughter to get out of school. I usually look up at the sky looking for a hawk
which is more common for us to see in our location. Today, December 10, 2012,
my husband and I both saw this eagle soaring over my daughter's school, Central
Elementary K-5 in Pollok, Texas. The school is located on Hwy 69, north of Lufkin. The time was about 3:05PM and we were able to keep the eagle in sight for about 5
minutes. I would say he was within 500ft when we first saw him. I was attempting
to get the camera ready on my phone but he was heading away from us so there
was no chance of getting a picture. I would say he was heading southwest. This is
only the third time I have seen an eagle in the wild and I am an outdoor girl!
I just saw a large bald eagle in Hutto Texas. On hwy 685, just north of brushy creek, in the top of a tree. Beautiful! I was so excited, I got a good look @ him or her. Thinking it may be female due to size.
I sighted a bald eagle at about 8am, Sunday November 25, 2012 in Houston, Texas along Buffalo Bayou just east of Memorial Park. The eagle would fly along the bayou, then stop and perch in a tall tree for a while before gliding off to find a new spot. Our resident crows were not happy about the eagle, and were busy diving at the eagle. Amazing! Who would expect to see a bald eagle in the middle of Houston!!
A confirmed sighting of a single Bald Eagle occurred on November 24 in Canyon Park on the north shore of Canyon Lake Texas.
I live in Missouri city,Tx and last week we spotted an American bald eagle flying in our backyard high above the trees and it would occasionally fly downward and we got a better look at it.we saw it at Cartwright Rd. at FM2234.
Sighting in Northeast Texas in the Pittsburg area. We have seen adult bald eagles sporadically in the past (once a year or so) however we have recently sighted a juvenile bald eagle that fishes our ponds. We have had multiple sightings of the eagle youngster over the past week.
November 3, 2012
Colorado river between Wharton and Lane City. I watched a pair of eagles fly along river and land in a tall tree across river from my house. I have seen one several times along river but never two together. What a sight with sunsetting behind them.
We saw a bald eagle today in a tree about 100 yards north of Farm Road 521 in Matagorda County, Texas. It was about 3:30pm. We were in the section of that road near the South Texas Nuclear Plant Cooling Lake, just east of Simpsonville.
All four of us saw the eagle and Steve took the photos (with a 500 mm lens) from the road.

My wife and I were sighting on our deck around 8:30 am when I sighted what I thought was a Charachara, as I had seen them here before. Then I saw the white head and tail. My heart started racing, I got very excited as I was telling my wife it's &$!@&.. eagle. It sailed past our deck and went down about 300 yards to a lake in our neighborhood park. We jumped in the car and drove to the park but didn't see it again. I grew up hunting in Louisiana but that's the first bald eagle I've seen on the gulf coast. WOW!
Missouri City, Tx.
In Hockley Texas we just sighted a grown Bald Eagle about to have a meal on a road kill, but as we rounded the corner in our SUV he spooked & flew off. First one seen around here in 2 years.
9-15-12 Saw a pair of adult bald eagles sitting in a treetop while playing golf on Mt. Creek Lake in Grand Prairie, TX. It is our 39th wedding anniversary. What a lovely present.
I saw a bald eagle on top of a distribution pole today on my property in Helotes, Tx.
2/11/2012 Lakes of Rosehill, Cypress, TX, Northwest Harris County at about 4:15 pm, a bald eagle circled over my house in a pattern moving north to south. Magnificent creature.
I was traveling east on Hwy 90 just a couple miles from Sugar Land TX, when a large birth swooped up a few yards from the front of my truck. I though WOW that is a really large bird. Then a few days later February 7th, 2012, I was turning west on to Hwy 90 from Hwy 6 South and I saw a bald eagle on the side of the road. I couldn't hardly believe that a bald eagle was stand on the side of the road eating. It was beautiful and I will treasure the site for the rest of my live. I am so happy to find that others in the Houston area have had the same wonderful experience. I travel that same route to work Monday thru Friday and hope to see the magnificent bird again.
Sugar Land, TX
We live ten miles outside of Mt. Pleasant, TX and on our way into town about 8:30 am on Saturday Feb. 4th, 2012 we saw a huge bird perched atop a tree by a large pond. It caught my eye because of its size and the fact that it had a solid white head. We turned around to take another look and it started to fly off. It was magnificent with white tail feathers, yellow beak, white head and huge wing span. We were amazed because we've lived here our entire lives and have never seen one in our area. Truly a majestic bird.
Spotted a large dark bird with white head and yellow beak and talons
in pine tree behind my house. He had some sort of critter (lunch) in
it's talons. Thought to myself, this can't be a bald eagle, as I
didn't think they were in the Houston area. I am in Copper Lakes
Subdivision in NW Harris County. After "googling" photos of hawks,
eagles, etc., I came upon this website and saw several different
sightings in my area. It was truly an amazing sight. I was a little
nervous to let my little dog out after that. :)
Adult Bald Eagle flying low, relatively low close to shore, headed North, over Cotton Lake, close to Cove Texas, East of Mont Belvieu, with what appeared to be a snake or possible small Gar fish in it's talons. What a wonderful sight.
Back about or on Jan 25, 2012 my two doggies and I were doing our
morning walk around Braes Bayou between the Scott and Calhoun bridges in
Houston, Texas and saw one of the usual two osprey with a fish in its
talon being chased by a much larger bird - a bald eagle. The osprey
kept making turns, but the eagle would catch up. Finally the osprey
dropped its fish. The eagle circled above where the fish had dropped
for a while then went to roost in a pine tree while the osprey went
toward the Scott street bridge. Within minutes the osprey had another
fish and the eagle gave chase. I had never before thought of the noble
bald eagle as a thief.
The following week, again while walking the doggies, I kept hearing the
cry of a raptor. Looking around and then behind me, I saw two ospreys
circling one of the trees we had just walked under. One osprey was
doing wide circles while the other was doing much tighter circles around
and "shouting" at a bald eagle in the top of the tree.
Really neat to see an eagle inside the loop, just south of the
University of Houston. The ospreys would rather the eagle stay away.
Braes Bayou does have lots of fish. Plenty for the cormorants, herons,
pelicans, egrets, ospreys and occasional eagle.
Rockwall, Texas 1/14/2012
Approximately one mile north of FM 3092 and two miles east of FM 740.
Time about 12:30 PM EST.
The bird was making large circles, heading east by southeast.
Visibility was extremely clear.
Although the bird was extremely high there was no mistaking it for a
buzzard. It was very large, prominent features were a fanned white
tail and a large white head. I called my wife outside, pointed at the
bird, and said "Look." She said, "That's an eagle."
My wife and I have been seeing what appears to be a Bald Eagle near the San Antonio Tx area between Converse and Kirby, just west of Martinez Creek dam and NW of Martinez Creek Dam number 2. The most recent sighting was 04 January about 3pm. It was resting on a new pile of mulch created recently in preparation of some home construction. I saw fly sown to the ground wait a minuet and take off with something in its claws while I was out walking our dog in a nearby field.
We have spotted a pair of Eagles in our subdivision in Rye Texas. They have been spotted for 4 days consecutively now. It is such a wondrous sight watching them perch high in the trees. They are so beautiful

Conroe, Texas- December 21, 2011. My husband and I were having lunch at a BBQ joint on Lake Conroe (north of Houston) on Hwy. 105. I was looking out the window overlooking the lake and saw a large dark bird with a VERY distinctive white head flying over the water. I drew my husband's attention to it, and he agreed that it was definitely a Bald Eagle. Very exciting! I will be keeping my eyes out for more as I hike along Spring and Cypress Creeks!
I work at an auto shop in Sugar Land, TX, It sits on a small lake. One of our neighbors on the lake called to tell us an Eagle was feeding on the edge of the lake directly behind our building. Sure enough behind the building was a Bald Eagle feeding on a catfish. I watched him for a minute or so without him noticing, but eventually he saw me and flew to the top of a nearby telephone pole. I went back 15-20 minutes later to see if the fish he left was still there, only to find the fish gone and the eagle across the lake feeding again.
December 20, 2011 - Eagle sighted perched on telephone pole eating a good size animal (bigger than a squirrel) in Sugar Land, TX along Burney Road @ Voss. Facinating!
December 17, 2011- Eagle sighted perched on tree branch in Greatwood along Rabbs Bayou, Sugar Land Texas. Beautiful bird.
December 14, 2011 East of San Antonio, Texas between Converse and Matinez on FM 1516 east side of Waste Managements dump ground first time at about 10 am second time about 1 pm.
On the first sighting the eagle was on the ground atop a dirt clod in a pool of water that had formed on next to the fence line on the northeast corner of Waste Managements property maybe, 75 foot from the roadway
Passed him by at about 50 mph, initially thought that it was a pelican (close to Calaverase Lake where pelicans are not unheard of), turned around to get another look but as soon I started to slow down The bird took flight and dropped into a barrow pit and I lost sight of him/her.
Second time today spotted two eagles between Martinez and Saint Hedwig and a possible third eagle to the west at the same time towards Loop 410, Not to sure about the third, just caught a glimpse before it dropped below the trees.
Told my mechanic about the first sighting he wanted to know what kind of eggnog I was drinking. The second time he was with me. My first time to see a free Bald Eagle, and to get as close as I was, IT IS A GOOD DAY.
Adult bald eagle sighting, November 30, 2011. Bird flew in from south and roosted in tree overnight in back yard along Burgess Creek, approximately 3 miles south of Hudson Oaks, Parker County Texas.
Around Lake Waco Dam, about 5:45 p.m., Wednesday, November 23, 2011. Bird came up out of the wilderness area Southeast of the spillway gates, gained altitude heading North/Northwest.
Hauling oil on FM 2000 in Caldwell, Texas spotted single Bald Eagle poached on top of a dead hog around noon 11/18/2011. Grew up in Colorado what a great sight after 15yrs in Texas.
November 8, 2011: Huntsville, Texas. We spotted one eagle while our students were outside for recess around 12:30 at Scott Johnson Elementary. It flew from the direction of our building toward the wooded area close to the playground. Ironically, this was the week we were studying about American symbols! Nice to see them in our area!
On October 28, 2011 just after 5pm, my son and I saw a Bald Eagle flying over my suv as we were driving down Forest Heights near Shangrila in Copperfield’s Southcreek subdivision in NW Houston, Texas. Amazing! We both looked at each other…did you just see that?!! We both noted the distinct white head and tail…really couldn't believe our eyes. Nice to see! Hope we see it again.
We are at Sandy Creek Park on Steinhagen Lake, near Jasper, TX. We were sitting around camp about ten o'clock this morning when a mature Bald Eagle circled the camp at little over treetop height. I never get tired of seeing them.
Watched mature Bald Eagle at fork of spring Creek and Cypress Creek in Jesse Jones Park in Humble Texas for the second time this month 09/30/11 in Humble TX
Since my first close up sighting of a Bald Eagle I have been paying more attention to the sky in this area. So for weeks I've been seeing three large brownish birds on several occasions drifting along on the wind at times seeming to interact. At first i thought they were buzzards but occasionally i would see a lone one drift overhead and could tell right away this was totally different from a buzzard. I passed it off as possibly a very large hawk. However, after posting here yesterday and spending some time browsing this sight I learned that immature Bald Eagles do not develop the distinctive white head and tail for several years. As such today I paid more attention to the birds I have been seeing and am quite sure these too are young eagles. These sightings are in a remote rural area along FM1409 which runs between Dayton TX and a small town named "Old River - Winfree" next to the Trinity River. September 21, 2011
Spotted a Bald Eagle September 19 2011 looking to do some arial angling along the Trinity river. It landed in a tree about 20 yards from me and three other people. He made several low passes over the water and would land in the same tree each time. It finally moved down the river continuing it's search for a meal. Very cool to see these beautiful birds making a come back in our area. This was at a construction site between Mt Belvieu, Tx and Dayton, Tx about a 45 minute drive from my house in Pasadena. This was my second sighting in this area within two weeks.
Three eagles were seen circling just above tree-top level around noon today, 9-17-2011 at co-ordinates: Lat: 31.23 Lon: -94.75 Elev: 281
We are about 4 miles north of Huntington, Texas, not far from Lake Sam Rayburn. They were chattering softly to each other. It was quite a wonderful surprise to see them.
My 8 yr old son and I witness a Bald Eagle sighting in my backyard today at 6pm. It swooped down by the lake in my back yard then landed in my backyard. We noticed the white head, white legs, and white tail. It went fishing minutes later in the lake. Once it caught a fish it flew up onto a branch of a tall dead oak tree. It stayed there eating for about 45 minutes and then flew off. What an amazing sight to see. We hope to see it again.
Missouri City, TX on September 14, 2011
I was getting in my car this morning, looked up and watched a Bald Eagle flying just above tree top level straight overhead. I had hoped it would circle back so I could take a picture, but it kept going Southeast. This was in Missouri City, Texas near 1092 and Cartwright. Two weeks ago I spotted this one or another one a few miles West on Dullas near Lexington. Very close to my location is a Park with a small lake stocked with fish for recreation. Could be this Park may be very inviting to the Eagles - easy pickin's and always replenished.
