CLOSED: Bald Eagles

Wewahitchka, FL

Dont need an id but have 4 Bald Eagle staying around my property for 4 days. A newly cut pine field makes the viewing great. Is it breeding time in N. Forida because i have witnessed several fights among the males? Also have one that appears to be a juvenile. What age do they start breeding and will they breed with their own parents? He (it) is as big as the others but hasnt developed much white yet. Read that this my take a couple of years. How long do they stay with the parents? Sorry for the long post but i am fascinated with them!

They usually start breeding at 5-6 years old, when they have fully adult plumage. They only stay with their parents until a bit less than a year old.
