BaldEagles aren't rare - I've taken a few trips from pa to detroit across the ohio turnpike - I see multiple eagles every trip. Went to FL last january and took an airboat tour of the everglades around christmas FL and lots of bald eagles there too.
I've probably seen 20 in the past 2 years. None at my house - I see a lot of red tail hawks (almost daily)
The coolest critter I've seen was a few years ago, I had a tree trunk that was rotting and every morning at 10 am on the dot a large wood pecker would arrive and have breakfast. I tried like heck to get pics but he was a touchy critter, anything and everything would get him on the move.
I hear woodpeckers often but rarely see them, same for owls.
