I am the eagle, I live in high country In rocky cathedrals that reach to the sky I am the hawk and there's blood on my feathers But time is still turning they soon will be dry And all of those who see me, all who believe in me Share in the freedom I feel when I fly Come dance with the west wind and touch on the mountain tops Sail over the canyons and up to the stars And reach for the heavens and hope for the future And all that we can be and not what we are Edit Lyrics Edit Wiki Add Video.

We have also seen the very mild late - winter periods, such as this winter, cause birds to "move out early". I would say overall, they stay pretty much with movement based on day-length, thus calender time, but milder weather sure does allow them to move around a lot more. I don't believe it would affect the speed of their migration.
Q: Since bald eagles spend time in warm and cold climates, do they like it better in the heat or the cold? A: That's a hard one, because you are asking me to predict what an eagle "likes". You are right that they are found from the hot, hot deserts of Arizona to the very cold climes of northern Canada and Alaska. I don't think it is so much of a question of what they "like" or don't like, but rather which condition is harder more stressful on them, This, also, is tough to say, since they do succeed reproduce successfully , under a wide variety of such conditions.
My own feeling, based for one thing upon raw numbers in very "hot" spots versus colder spots, is that the extreme heat is deadlier for them. You they can't shed excess heat easily, and even here in NY we have had nestlings expire due to hyperthermia, but they can maintain body temperature given enough fuel food. Once in a while prolonged periods of wet weather or snow can be a factor on nestlings also. You'll find the vast majority of bald eagles living out their lives in temperate to colder climates.
Q: Do the same eagles winter in the same place each year? Or would Kentucky' eagles some winters migrate to New York? A: Our years of studying wintering eagles in New York have shown us that, indeed, there a high "site-fidelity" by the birds, especially older birds. Young eagles may wander around a bit more during their immature years, before they too settle on an area to their liking which becomes their habitual winter home.

Q: Do the eagles that winter in Kentucky go as far north as the eagles that winter in New York? I go to Land Between the Lakes in Kentucky each winter to see the eagles. A: Excellent question. I am aware that good numbers of eagles can be seen at LBL each winter, but have never given much thought to where they come from. Let's do some "on the spot" thinking about this.
We in New York have captured and banded well over wintering bald eagles over the past 20 years as of Most of these have turned out to be birds that indeed do winter in New York, but we have also captured some that were obviously in transit between places note eagle E63 that we caught last year, but which we found out this year wintered in Maryland at the northern end of the Chesapeake Bay.
However, E63 is by far the exception, and represents the furthest south any of our winter-captured eagles have been recorded. As you also know from studying the JN data over the years, our wintering eagles come from and thus represent a large geographic area of eastern Canada. It would seem logical then, that if some of these eastern Canadian birds migrated that far south, we would have snagged one by now and seen this. Therefore, I would conclude that, no, the LBL birds do not hail from the same northern territories.
Likewise, from banding and radio-tagging studies conducted over the past two decades in other states such as in TN, MD, VA, FL and other mid-east and southern states, we do know that birds from these areas use the LBL. Although I don't believe any radio-tracking studies of these LBL birds has been done, my best guess is that birds that winter there come mostly from nearby breeding areas and from the greater Cheasapeake Bay population. A great contact for information on these eagles is Mr.
Bob Hatcher of the Tennessee Wildlife Division, who is very familiar with those birds and that area; I'm sure he can give you lots more information on this. Q: Do the eagles migrate in flocks? What is the typical size of a group of eagles? A: No, eagles migrate alone as far as we know. Some breeding pairs may migrate together, but we do not know this at this point; this is a question I would like to answer using our satellite-telemetry project you study through JN. How do you think we could determine this? This is not to say that on a given day in the fall or spring, many eagles might not be seen moving south or north during the same day for example some hawk-watches may report 50 or more eagles moving by in one day.
This does happen, but it is related to the weather conditions suitable days for migrating , which facilitate many birds moving, but not necessarily as "groups" as we see in waterfowl like geese. Q: Would it be typical to see 10 eagles together in a group?

There was a sighting of 10 eagles in Vermont in the same place. We thought they travelled alone and didn't expect to hear that they were in a flock.

A: The answer kind of depends upon the time of year! It would be very unusual to see such a number together during the breeding season, since eagles are territorial and typically space themselves out as breeders, so you would only see a couple of adults and their young "together". I have to say though, that in some places where eagles are extremely abundant, such as in Southeast Alaska, one could see such a grouping of immatures and non-breeders in an area where no nests are and thus are "safe" from territorial interactions.
However, I can assure you, this is not the case in Vermont! I assume the sighting you mention was between December and March, and likely along a major river or lake, and these were wintering birds attracted by some food source.

During winter, eagles are gregarious will be in groups and tolerate each other by necessity, to share common food sources. In summer, suitable habitat is less limited and thus they can afford to be more solitary and territorial.
No nesting eagles that we know of yet in VT as of , although keep the faith; one will be there soon! Q: We want to know if eagles ever stay in an area for the whole year? We are hoping that eagle E47 stays in Ferrisburgh, Vermont! A: Yes, eagles do sometimes "stay" in an area all year round. I'm sure you can figure this out with a little thought.
