The 2019/2020 Rocky River Reservation Bald Eagle nesting pair had huge success, raising an eaglet to a full fledgling juvenile. The adults and juvenile have been recently spotted soaring along the northern stretches of the Rocky River as they hunt for steelhead, suckers and other large fishes as well as waterfowl and mammals.
During October and November there will be no activity at the nest, as the eagles have finished this year’s nesting season and are now busy foraging for fish and other prey, sometimes flying 10 to 20 miles away as they seek prime hunting grounds.
If the eagle pair chooses to nest again at this site, some visible pair activity may resume in late December. Breeding pairs of Bald Eagles begin most of their mating behaviors in January and February. We hope to see the Rocky River Bald Eagle pair return to this nest in January 2021, for another nesting season!
