How high is the nest? About 80 feet.
How big is the nest? 5-6 feet across, about the same deep; it weighs about 1½ tons.
How old is the nest? The eagles built it in 2007. A previous nest close by fell when a windstorm broke one of the branches.
Are these eagles banded? No.
Which is the male and which is the female? It is hard to tell the difference unless they are both on the nest. The female is larger than the male. This female has a ridge above her eyes that goes further back than on the male, and her eyes are surrounded by a greyish shadow; the male has a line around his eyes that makes them look “beadier.” Some think that the male’s head is “sleeker” than the female’s.
