    The bald eagle is widespread throughout Canada and portions of the United States.  Among the 50 states, Minnesota has the third largest bald eagle breeding population, following Alaska and Florida.

    Bald eagles select nest sites near lakes and rivers in forested areas where tall, large diameter trees are available for nesting . Nest trees are usually within a half mile  of water. In Minnesota, red and white pines. Eagles have also been known to nest on artificial structures. 

     Bald eagles in in this area will travel south when  food becomes difficult to find. The adults and juveniles migrating separately. As most bald eagles prefer fish, migration will happen as the lakes and rivers freeze. In Minnesota, bald eagles gather  around areas of open water in winter, particularly along the Mississippi River south of Red Wing. They will return north when they can feed again. 

    In the Voyageurs National Park some campsites close yearly due to eagle nesting.n early May, the park temporarily closes areas around the park’s active bald eagle nesting sites to campers and other human activities. In mid-August the areas are reopened after the young eaglets fledge.
