Saw a bald eagle on naval station Norfolk just five minutes ago. It was so awesome to see one not in captivity! Didn't look tagged either!
Please be advised that today I viewed a large adult eagle flying between my two large back yard trees and circling occasionally. Very large and impressive. Beautiful white head and white tail feathers. This is my first time seeing this magnificent bird. We do have quite a few hawks of various types around here, but this is a first for me.
I'll have to warn my neighbors to keeps their small pets inside for a few days. I hope to see this beautiful bird again tommorrow.

My wife and I sighted a Bald Eagle today, flying above our house in Fincastle. It's beautiful white head was clearly seen as it's big wings flapped on by us. An emotional sighting for sure. Twice I've seen a Pileated Woodpecker, and that was amazing too, but not like viewing this amazing symbol today.

On Wilderness Rd in Jonesville VA just above Kingsport TN on 1.27.15 at 8 a.m. and around 4 p.m.
01/21/15 at 10:40a.m. spotted an eagle landing on a tree limb at the edge of woods on Rt. 60 Anderson Highway in Powhatan, VA between the County Line and Luck Stone. The beautiful white tail spread caught my eye as he landed. It took awhile to sink in that it was a bald eagle & for the first time in my life I saw one! If it ever happens again, I hope I will have enough wits about me to pull over, take a picture and make a note of the exact location
Opal Road, Opal Virginia January 19, 2015 at 9:30 am the bird was fully white headed and white tailed flying up from the road and perched on high tree. It didn't look huge, though, about the size of a buzzard.

Saw a pair of bald eagles in a tree at Oronoco Bay on the Potomac River in Alexandria, Va at the end of Pendleton Street.
I saw a large bald eagle, Sunday, January 11, 2015, on Rt. 106, Vineyards Parkway. It was on a right side hill, as you head towards, The New Kent Winery, in New Kent, Virginia, not far from the Four Seasons entrance. It was almost dusk, and the eagle was eating a freshly killed mammal, by the looks of how red, the mammals body was. I drove past slowly, and then swung around, to get another look. I watched, at a distance, for a few minutes. It looked like a large, mature bird, with a full white head. When I drove past the second time, the eagle took flight, going away from me. I had never seen an eagle flying away, and was thrilled to see, the large section of white feathers, in the back. The wingspan was impressive, somewhere between 5 and 6 feet.
I feel grateful, that these magnificent birds, have made such a successful comeback.

We saw and photographed a bald eagle in the City of Alexandria on January 2, 2015. It was perched at the very top of the dead tree near the Wilkes street train tunnel.
Witnessed a bald eagle behind my property....just sitting in tall oaks. Stayed in my area for about 30 minutes. He was about 100 yards away. About dusk, he flew away towards the northeast. I am located in Southampton County, VA in a rural area between Capron and Drewryville. On January 1, 2015....what a great way to start the new year!
Observed 4-5 juvenile bald eagles feeding on a large deer carcass only about 120ft from the side of the road in Bowling Green, Va on Paige Road 12/29/14 about 12:30am. They were huge and completely caught our eye. Just fascinating to watch. They were only a few black vultures around as well. I was driving and unfortunately could not get a clear photo but it was a scene imprinted in my mind.

Saw a bald eagle today (12/29/14) in Burke, Va on Burke Center Parkway near Rt 123 intersection, circling with two crows about 8 ft above the road near the firehall. Awesome!
I was driving down the road a bald eagle was standing in a field watching over what looked like a deer carcass that was hit on the side of the road. The sighting was in Hanover, Virginia. My whole family saw it. I have never seen one outside the zoo

Yesterday 12/14/14, my husband and I saw a large eagle eating a deer carcass in a field beside CampCarysbrook Rd. in Riner, VA.
We had heard there were eagles in the area but had never seen one in. We drove by and it took off in a circle, we didn't have time to go back but it was awesome!
I saw a Bald Eagle fly over 395 in Arlington,VA this morning 12/12/14 around 7:30AM.
I couldn't believe it! It was gigantic, had a white head and white tail.
My son and I spotted a large bald eagle in a field on mettz road , right off of rt. 28 near midland Va. This was on Dec. 10 and 11, 2014 about 3:00 pm both days.
Sunday12/7 @ 4:40 PM saw an adult bald eagle flying over the Bull Run bridge on Old Centreville Rd. (between Pr. William and Fairfax Counties West of Rt. 28). I’ve lived next to Bull Run for 22+ years and this was my first Bald Eagle sighting.
12/7/2014, Shoemaker School Rd, Purcellville, VA
My wife and I watched a pair of bald eagles attempting to feed on a deer carcass directly across the street on Shoemaker School Rd. in Purcellville, VA. The carcass was close to the road so between an occasional passing vehicle, gathering turkey buzzards and a pair of red hawks the eagles gave up and eventually left left the area. There was a several minute time period when the both eagles and both red hawks circled away flying high and within 10'-50' of each other with the hawks seemingly driving the eagles from the area in a semi-aggressive manner. My wife and I found it spectacular viewing the pairs of bald eagles and red hawks together within the same field of vision through our binoculars for several minutes.
