male from the female bald eagle? The female is
slightly larger than the male. In the case of the
Hays bald eagles the male has a noticeable white
spot on the right side.
- Adult birds range
from 35" to 37" tall with a wingspan of 72" to 90"
and weigh between 10 to 14 lbs.
- Their diet consists
of mainly fish but will take advantage of carrion
they can find.
- The female lays 1-3
eggs 5-10 days after mating. For bald eagles in our
area we should expect eggs between February & March.
The eggs are incubated for about 35 days.
- The nest is between
6' - 8' in diameter and can weigh up to 1 ton.

typically mate for life and have a 20-30 year
