Bald Eagles Soar Over Silverton

Kettle Creek Road nest spotted

Bald Eagles in New Jersey?

Yes. In fact, there's sightings in Toms River, near the Brick border.

An apparent nest or favorite perch for bald eagles is just north of Kettle Creek Road, and south of Old Hooper Avenue, at the north edge of Silverton.

A good spot to eagle-watch is the Advance Auto Parts on Hooper Avenue, during the afternoons.

Ive lived in Brick Toms River area all my life . Ive known this pair was there for about 6 months I watched them build that nest and was amazed and very happy to see that they seem very healthy . Its a beautiful thing and great to have right around the corner from my house > I truley hope to see more of this wonderful animals in the future . Seeing a red tail or coopers hawk is one this but a bald eagle is awsome

We haven't seen the pair in over a wee also. Was told by the state that they are incubating eggs so they may be low in the nest. I will also keep looking. Just came from Blackwater wildlife Refuge in Maryland and they have 30 nesting pair there. We saw over 30 eagles in one day, AWESOME.

Two were spotted on the tower at 7.15pm . Best to use binoculars from a distance . Bill

Think there are eggs because usually you see them on top of the towar but for the last 2 weeks consantly on the nest cross your fingers
alphonse paolello April 19, 2011 at 06:26 PM
Was watching today always 1 on the nest constantly always 1 so I think they diffenetly have egg or eggs they hatch in may so this is a good sign yes hope we get a healthy chick or 2

"...as I sit in traffic..." Now there's the subject of another rant, but let's stay positive. This is proof that AT&T is for the birds! Do eagles eat squirrels? I'm glad to see a lot fewer squirrels in this area.

Seems like you are the negative one. I believe eagles eat people that hate squirrels.
leslie April 30, 2011 at 01:40 PM
Ok ...... Eagles most commonly eat fish . That is why they build nests near water. Eagles also do not attack people no matter how negative they are . They are the symbol of the FREE country and are truly a comeback miracle . It is amazing to watch eagles and all nature to make us realize are dear and fragile life is. Leslie

Eagles main diet is fish one of the reasons nests are so high and close to big bodies of water I've watch them bring fish after fish up there but sunday I was watching and one of them dropped straight down into the woods I got closer but not to close and something screemed twice my guess a rabbit
alphonse paolello May 07, 2011 at 09:17 PM
Watch today 4 pm one on the tower second one arrive with a fish then takes off 5 or so minute go by the one on the tower go down into the nest with my binocs all I can see is her head feeding a little beak

05\09\2011 4pm there are 2 healthy babies up there this is GREAT they are about have the size of mom and dad one alittle smaller but they have a great chance AWSOME
alphonse paolello May 16, 2011 at 10:44 PM
Bad news I'm pretty sure 1 baby didn't make it very un happy to say because I thought they both had a great shot but the other one seems fine this is normal when they have to most of the time only one survise nature can't question it . Ill take one more of these beautiful animals anyday 2 would have been great but we got 1 more in nj good thing it killed me to see mom and dad to bring food to the nest and only one head come up I hope I'm wrong
alphonse paolello May 19, 2011 at 10:54 AM
I was wrong both babies are alive and well yes that's great
DarkeneG May 29, 2011 at 03:39 PM
As of May 28th, the 2 baby eagles are getting ready to fly. One goes on the railing and flaps his wings. Good luck, babies!
alphonse paolello June 06, 2011 at 01:59 PM
One baby took flight today with no problem wathed it soar for about a half hour and then just landed on the nest awsome
alphonse paolello June 22, 2011 at 08:23 PM
Been watching closely got some imfo you can tell the male from the female if you look closely he has a brilliant white head and the end of his mouth ends at the front of his eye . She has slight grey shadows around her eyes she has a larger beak and the end of her mouth goes all the way to the back of her eye . Mom was there today took off just before the storm
alphonse paolello June 22, 2011 at 08:27 PM
The juveniles are doing very well healthy mom and dad bring food less frequently for a reason trying to get them to start hunting on there own last lesson and the begining of adulthood
alphonse paolello June 22, 2011 at 08:41 PM
Oh I named them the female I call aquilina the male is known as Aarni first hatched first to fly is Aras number 2 the baby is Arden all the names are foriegn words meaning Eagle .
JO-ANNE September 12, 2011 at 07:47 PM
Are the Eagles still there? I go to Silverton once a week, at different times and haven't seen them in over a month?
silvertonmom September 12, 2011 at 07:55 PM
I also live in silverton and have not seen them for a long time now :(
Martin September 12, 2011 at 09:18 PM
About a month ago I thought I saw eaglets (all dark, no white) on cell tower near Top Tomato on Brick. Maybe just resting there, not nesting. I thought I saw white-headed Daddy on Advance Auto Parts cell tower about a month ago, again not necessarily nesting there anymore. How do they survive 70MPH winds? Do they migrate in fall? Do they stay in the same nest from one year to the next? Local eagle experts, please write something for all the eagles fans (and I don't mean football Eagles).

Why was/ is there no info or pics of the three new baby eagles that hatched there this year?? how soon people loose interest??!!
susan meany June 06, 2013 at 07:22 PM
Just came back from watching the eagle nest in toms river. Observed 2 eaglets wingersizing and one adult. They are beautiful creatures. It appears the eaglets will be branching soon. I love to sit and watch these beautiful eagles, something I never would have believed would be so close to my home. SM
