We see a lot of hawks and ospreys. I do know that there are a couple of eagles around, but i have never seen them yet. Maybe spring hopefully

Keep your eye on the weather. Last year the river had opened up in late February. There was no ice and no eagles. This year is starting out as a colder winter so things may be different in late February but once the ice goes out the eagles spread out all over the river.

During the winter, I've seen bald eagles at Starved Rock State Park in central Illinois. Its about 90 minutes to 2 hours from Chicago. They like to nest along the Ilinois river as there's a dam in the park and it keeps the Illinois river from freezing.

Late February is when they start laying eggs in Iowa(L&D 14 will be tapering off that late). If you look me up then, we can check some nests. There are 11 nests that I watch within a 3 hour drive of the first-and some within 20-30 yards of the road.
ETA-just saw how old the thread is, sorry. Offer stands for next Feb though

I went to the Sheffield Mills eagle watch here in Nova Scotia this year. It was my first time going and I can't wait until next year. It is at a farmer's field. They put out dead chickens and then the Eagles come in to feed. At one point there was at least 40 of them flying around!

If you scroll down on my IG there are a bunch of eagle photos from the day I went. https://www.instagram.​com/shane.costantino/ (external link)

Massachusetts mainly in the late fall and winter. There are a few spots here, but you can go for weekends on end and not see a thing. I did happen to see one about 6 or 8 weeks ago in the Plum Island area, but none since.
