Do eagles build nests in pine trees?
Nests are usually located in a live pine or cypress tree, most often within 1-1.8 miles of water. Nests are often reused year after year, with some pairs of eagles using an alternate nest within their defined territory.
How far do bald eagles travel from their nest?
Eagles only travel as far as they have to in order to find food. This is particularly true of adult eagles with established territories. Adults will stay on their territory (roughly 1 – 6 square miles) year round as long as there is open water nearby where they can hunt.
Where do bald eagles go in the winter?
Northern, non-coastal bald eagle populations including those in Alaska, generally migrate south for the winter between August and January. Bald eagles in the Great Lakes region and adjacent areas in Canada may migrate eastward to winter along the Atlantic Coast from Maine and New Brunswick to Chesapeake Bay.
