Have you ever seen a bald eagle?

I have several times even up close. Yesterday I saw one swoop down from a tree top and capture it's prey. Just amazingly beautiful!

  • Yes, we have quite a few where I live, and I have seen them from time to time over the river, and I know where there's a nest that I've seen the pair fly to for several years. Never have seen the babies though. I also see lots of ospreys, which look similar from a distance.

  • we have several nests to my moms house. We stop to show my kids. They love it. Grew up with them in the back yard basically.

  • In the wild, no. I have seen them in zoos but that is it. They are beautiful creatures.

  • I believe we saw one this summer as we drove across the country. I'm trying to remember (it's a bit hazy). I know we saw a mountain lion run past our car and heard coyotes howling. I'm pretty sure there was an eagle in there somewhere.

  • Wow! I bet that was a beautiful sight. I have seen two up close, but both in cages at our local nature center. They were both hurt and rescued by the nature center and could not be rehabilitated enough to be released into the wild.
