I like to imagine that it thinks all the eagles fandom is for him/her - and it's like "yes, I deserve this" lol

There has been a definite uptick in the number of hawks I've spotted lately. I've also seen at least one Eagle. At least something good seems to be happening.

Once we banned DDT the bald eagle population recovered incredibly well. They are considered a winter visitor in our area which coincides with January/February football. In other words, the Eagles show up in the playoffs 🦅

Bald Eagles reside in Philadelphia and on every major body of water in Pennsylvania. They are residents. Not winter visitors.

There's a huge bald eagle roosting on the radio tower in Havertown. It was just circling all day the other day, awesome sight.

Anyone who wants to spot bald eagles in Philly, head on down to the absolutely amazing and we'll preserved John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge. Take a walk across the lake on the footpath (an amazing experience in itself) and then take a left and walk down about a mile. You'll see some signs signifying where there is a nest and you can often see them nearby or on your way!

If you don’t mind a little drive, conowingo dam is another amazing spot. If you get there the right time you will see hundreds of them.

Also visit pennypack in the Delaware. It’s a hidden gem in its own right and has a nesting pair of Mated eagles that you can often see fishing in the river.

Look at this handsome son of a bitch.

We have some fantastic birding here in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. Practically life-changing when you see one of these guys in person

I have an eagle tattoo and this gal/fella is doing almost the same exact pose as what I have.

Love this photo, it’s neat to see actual physical eagles living here!

Where on the Delaware? I think I saw one near the canal by Yardley on Saturday. Might be the same one!

This one was close to the airport, there are many pairs lining the Delaware!
