Perhaps you can answer this regarding the island eagle's east coast cousins for me. For the first time in over 40 years I observed an :<<>>: at a resevior less than 1/4 mile from my own front door. I was told there is a nest at an undisclosed location. I am wondering if you or :<S><: have any suggestions should i try to play treasure hunt and go look , from a distance, for a nest? Should i first look for tall trees with a nest or should i concentrate along the shoreline of the resevior given there are no islands in the resevoir? Of course my "treasure hunt" will be done in the off season when the nest isnt active
They are usually within a half mile of the water. They like tall trees, but would also use ledges on cliffs.
