Wendy Wright wrote the following: Saw a 4-5 yr old bald eagle in flight and perched at 9:00AM 1-16-16 in Houston TX at White Oak Park on the White Oak Bayou. Confirmed sighting with binoculars and photos. White head and tail had just a bit of dark smudging - beak was bright yellow. Have had an average of two adult eagle sightings per year at this location close to downtown Houston. This was my first sighting that did NOT follow a period of heavy rain that stranded fish on the banks of the bayou.

The eagle was perched on a telephone pole, just past the 4 E Dairy going towards 1295,it remained still until I stopped my van, then it flew north west.

Virginia Lawrence wrote the following: Female, approximately 5 miles southwest of Frankston, TX on Farm to Market Road (FM)837, on Sunday, January 9th, 2016, 10:15 a.m. FM 837 is secluded, low-traffic road surrounded by East Texas hard and piney woods with scattered pastures. She was on the roadside perhaps eating prey. I was traveling north-bound on route to church. I slowed down when I spotted the road-side bird, because it did not flee like most hawks do when a vehicle approaches. She flew low to the road ahead of me for about 25 yards then flew up over trees. She was quite large, and I did not actually realize she was a Bald Eagle until she ascended and I could see her head in the sunlight. (I had noticed the white in her tail while she flew ahead of me close to the road.) Glorious sight to behold on that sunny but cold winter morning in beautiful northeast Texas.

Randy Patterson wrote the following: Just saw one fly over my property at 1:49 PM on 1/10/2016. There is a large body of water behind my property, and lots of tall trees away from any roads or paths. I am in the Texarkana, Texas area.

David Deeds wrote the following: 1/10/2016, 0911 hours, temp. 27%F. 33.2069749 , -96.5854239. I spotted this beautiful American Eagle perched atop a tree overlooking a pond in my back yard. I was able to make a 100% identification using binoculars, unfortunately the Eagle was to far away to get a good picture with my cell phone camera.

Michael Hall wrote the following: Was around 130pm in between 1187 and Vickery blvd. Went out to my truck looked up in the trees sounded like two squirrels battling over territory. Tree limbs started breaking high up in the tree is what caught my attention. Holy crap the next thing I knew an eagle was flying away with a squirrel. The size of his feet dwaferd the squirrel.

Vivian Lear wrote the following: 1/3/16 around 4:30 pm on FM 1484 in Conroe Texas I saw a Bald Eagle flying. It is only the second time I've seen an Eagle in Texas. Several years ago I saw one at Lake Sam Rayburn at Ebenezer Park.

Sandy Pohlmeyer wrote the following: Hi my husband and I were headed home from shopping on FM 609 in Fayette Co., Texas when we saw what we think was a Bald Eagle fly up from the side of the road. The body of the bird was too heavy to be a buzzard. The head and tail were all white and the body was dark. We were just north of Gebert Rd. on FM 609 in Fayette Co., Texas between Flatonia and Hostyn. Very excited to see a Bald Eagle in our area.

It was beautiful and I had no idea on Kelly Rd. off FM 1488 in Magnolia, Texas, I would see my first bald eagle. I asked two men if they had seen it and of course I looked like the crazy lady. That beautiful animal flew away before I could get my camera on my phone up and working but have keeped a lookout for it. I looked up on the web today to see if other sightings where here and found the post of the one spotted in Indigo Lakes just down the road for my work location. Nice to see that I may not be crazy after all. Will keep my eyes up and camera ready.

Chuck Donley wrote the following: I saw a bald eagle for the 1st time here in Texas. Approx. 7:30am 11/18/2015 at Woodruff Park in Plano TX. Magnificent & Large. Never saw one before in that area so I imagine all the other birds normally in the area thought twice about flying around. I didn't hear any of the Killdeer normally there, just the ducks. It was great.

Terry Alfonso wrote the following: Near Lake Houston in Huffman, TX: On 10/31/15, I heard a strange noise outside my house, like metal rubbing on metal. I went outside to see what it was, and saw a huge bald eagle sitting in one of my pine trees. This was the last thing I expected to see! I was able to get a few pictures, then it flew to another tree at the front of my house. When it flew off towards the lake, it was carrying a squirrel in its talons. Right after it flew away, a second eagle flew up out of my neighbor's tree to join it, I hadn't even noticed that one. Very exciting for me! I've seen them a few times around Lake Houston, but never in my yard. Absolutely beautiful birds, what a thrill for Halloween!

Kelli Montgomery wrote the following: I saw one bald eagle flying over the Dad's Club in Pearland, TX on Thursday, October 29, 2015 around 5:15 pm before my daughter's softball game. The girls stopped playing for a second to stare up at this magnificent creature. Not something you get to see very often especially in a residential area. I have a feeling it was the first time many of these young girls have ever seen a bald eagle so it made the experience even more special.

John Robinson wrote the following: Saw a Bald Eagle today (9/21/2015) flying low over Indigo Lake Drive in Magnolia, Tx. Have seen them in Canada, but to see one here was a great surprise. Probably in that area due to the fairly large lake.

Danny Yardley wrote the following: On 8/6/15 at around 9:00AM we saw a mature bald eagle land in a tree behind our house next to the pond in Rock Creek in Cypress TX. It must have been a female due to its size! She sit in the top of the tree for around 5 minutes and when she flew away you could see the massive wing spread and her beauty in flight. We have lived here for almost 13 years and that is the third time we have seen a bald eagle and we hope its not our last.

We have sighted 3 this summer 2015 in east Texas. 2 mature and 1 immature. The 2 mature were next to our pond at the same time. We have pictures. They have been back several times individually. Flew low right beside our house with a fish. Most beautiful living bird I have ever seen.

My son and I saw a bald eagle in the East end of League City, Texas on February 12. It was circling over and then landed on the shore of one of the man-made lakes along Austin St within an incomplete section of a neighborhood. I couldn't get close enough to see for sure, but it looked like it was eating a fish or something. When he finished he took off and flew away towards the West.

Pretty sure I drove right alongside a bald eagle flying along the bayou at the Texas Medical Center today in Houston, TX at about 5.45 pm. Couldn't believe my eyes!

Watching a very beautiful, large bald eagle in flight over my head as I write this. I am on hwy 147 somewhere between Etoile and San Augustine, Tx in San Augustine county (I think).
