- I'm fairly certain we saw a Golden Eagle in Sarasota on April 13,
2008. My husband, sister-in-law and her husband also saw it. I will
try to find out where it was, as it was my sister-in-laws, girlfriends
parents neighborhood. Has anyone else from Sarasota seen a Golden
Eagle? I did some research on the internet and found on the Cornell
website that they are primarily in the Western U.S to Mexico and North
America, but are starting to appear in the Eastern part of the U.S.
