Bald eagle home range sizes may vary as populations in Oregon and Washington have larger ranges that those in Alaska, but they do not oscillate between breeding and non-breeding seasons.
Bald eagle home range sizes may vary.
For instance, populations in Oregon and Washington have home ranges of 6 to 47 square kilometers, with an average of 22 square kilometers; however, a population in Alaska has a territory radius of 0.5 square kilometers. This is believed to be the lower limit for the species.
On average, the bald eagle’s home range size is believed to be one to two square kilometers and does not appear to oscillate between breeding and non-breeding seasons.
