Just a question :question: I often let my students watch the eagles in class. (9th grade intensive reading Don't Panic in Green Cove Springs, Florida) and have had a few of them ask me about the size of the birds and of the nest. One of my students has gotten his grandmother hooked on the watching the nest, even!:cheerguy: Thanx!Thank You

Hello LadySunshine and welcome to all of you.

Male bald eagles can weigh 7 - 10 lbs, females 14 - 15 lbs.
A Male wingspan can be greater than 6 ft and the females as much as 8 ft.
A typical bald eagle nest can be 5 - 6 ft in diameter and can weigh hundreds of pounds.
(I have read that they can also be up to 9 ft. in diameter and weigh about 2 tons...Yikes Wooh

Here's the link to the HWF Reference section, there's lots of wonderful and informative info here....
index.php?topic=BaldEagleBiology


Hope this helps and hope you stop by again. You've chosen a beautiful nest to watch Smile

If you or your class have anymore questions, please post them. Someone will be glad to help out :hello:.

Sunny and quite breezy, adult is quietly brooding....it's quite peaceful.

:hello:ladysunshine, It is very nice to see you again.

I have read adult Bald Eagles weigh from 10-14#s. The male weighs less than the female.
Here is a link to FAQs which I know you will find interesting and so will your students. You may want to bookmark it for easy reference.
