Bald Eagle

Bald Eagle

While migrating, bald eagles generally soar and congregate in areas with food abundances, specifically in areas below the freeze line with open water for hunting.

Because the wings of the bald eagle are so powerful, the bird often chooses to soar using slow, heavy wing beats, which allows it to travel far distances. While migrating, bald eagles generally soar, beginning in the late morning and going back to roost before dark.

Migratory birds congregate in areas with food abundances, specifically those areas below the freeze line with open water for hunting.

Bald eagles do not migrate with their mates.
