It only takes a few months for parents to care for them then off they go on their own. SW FL had a video from day one until the baby went off on his own (sad at the end). I used to watch it every day. They mainly eat fish and live close to the river, lake, etc.

On the Chesapeake Bay, there is a pair near our marina. And when we are in Florida there are two on the 18 hole on the golf course. There are beautiful to see but the videos you share with us are amazing. I live near the Potomac. They fly overhead and sometimes grace us by landing in one of our fields. By the road eating road kill, and also nests by the river from horseback.

Atsume Assemble. Actually every so often they fly right over my house. So guessing that they must have a nest someplace fairly close. How far will they travel from their nest? I teach In SC and we have a mating/ breeding pair who nest on our property. It is awesome to be able to show the students the babies and parents. In my front yard in CA foothills. Killed a squirrel one time, a week later a younger one killed a rattlesnake. The first one was watching me with his wings spread out 5 feet. No mistaking that hooked beak. I watch them in the cell tower where they have their nest in Cape Coral FL. Would be nice if there was a cam so we can watch them grow. Now that they are bigger and I can see them the eaglets have been wingerszing. I also watch the SWFL eagle cam. In Minnesota (land of 1,000 lakes & lots of fish & lots of nesting ground in those tall evergreen trees makes great habitat for the Eagles. They also have more privacy as many people leave for the south when cool season comes. Many times in many places from Alaska where we saw more than twenty on a dwarf and a block from our house in Port Austin where it had made a nest very high in a tree near the lake and yet we could see the baby bird growing up until it and the parents flew away never to return. Fun to watch parents taking turns feeding the little one.
