LIVE BALD EAGLE NEST CAM IN CALIFORNIA
In most of California, the bald eagle breeding season lasts from around January to July or August. The chicks fledge at 11 or 12 weeks and in a short time after leaving the nest, many of the still naive young birds suddenly head out on their own and rapidly migrate hundreds of miles to the north. Data collected shows that some of these young eagles reach northern and western Canada before returning to California a few months later. California's resident breeding bald eagle pairs remain in California during winter, typically in the same vicinity as their nesting areas, except when winter conditions are too severe and they must move to lower elevations.
Migratory bald eagles from nesting areas in northwestern states and provinces spend the winter in California, arriving during fall and early winter. These wintering birds may remain until February or March, or even into April.
