Bald Eagle

Bald Eagle

Bald eagles are diurnal and are less active during the winter, when winds are especially high, or when there’s precipitation.

Bald eagles are diurnal and spend about 91% of their time resting, 2.6% drinking, 2.3% scavenging, and 1.8% pirating food from others.

Generally, these birds are less active during the winter or when winds are especially high. Likewise, precipitation has a negative impact on their foraging success.
