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.
