    Default Just spotted a Bald Eagle

    I was on my way home from the bagel shop in brodheadsville a few minutes ago, coming along 115 north. As I was passing the fish and pay lake in Gilbert I saw a large bird of prey riding the air currents above the lake. I immediately noticed it was ALOT bigger then most hawks, and then realized that's because it was a friggin Bald Eagle!!!!!! White head and white tail, and easily twice the size of most hawks I've seen around the poconos.

    Man what a siight, I was half tempted to pull off the road and watch it for a while.

    Is there anyone I should notify about this?

    Indeed. In all seriousness, that's pretty damn cool you saw a bald eagle...I think all types of birds are awesome, but a bald eagle is the bird.

    Must not be a common sight out east? surprising.
    One of the coolest things I ever seen was a nesting pair of eagle fishing in the lake. One swooped down and snagged a fish...the next coolest thing was my boys were with me and saw it...my little guy still jabbers about it.

    Predatory birds rank up there as one of my favorite animals.
    I took these pics a week or so ago.

    Took it out of the bird feeder right outside my kitchen window.

    you should take a drive up towards Gouldsboro, i used to see them all the time up there, and at Lackawanna State Park. i could watch birds all day.

    Seeing a Bald Eagle in or around Carbon County isn't that rare. There are a lot of people who go up to Bake Oven Knob and observe these birds. No need to notify anybody. Just watch and enjoy!

    Nothing better than seeing a bald eagle. Up here in Northcentral PA there are quite a few of them. Just this past fourth of July we saw one kayaking down the Allegheny.

    you might have a better chance of seeing them around any large body of water; they like fish, and constantly patrol the shores for any that wash up. i used to go fishing in Prompton, and i'd see them all the time there. i've also seen them on RT 611, eating roadkill.

    they are abundant up by my parents house near Lackawaxen, on the Delaware.
    Guns don't kill people, it's mostly the bullets.
