Come February, the bald eagles will return to their nests and begin the cycle of hatching and fledging, yet again. There are still a few weeks to travel to their roosting sites to observe them in large numbers. If the weather turns cold, you may be in luck. Here’s my account of Eagle Days in Sauk City/Prairies du Sac, WI. (If you are hoping for eagle pics, this will disappoint. I need a birding lens!)

Yep, I can make out your /little guy who seems to be studying with “mile” interest your efforts to “shoot” him. Where in the photo is the nest and when will he/she deposit the eggs?
A juvenile is still a lone eagle…not to rate near the parental nest and still to young to have a mate of his/her own.
He/she will find a mate and build an egg when the head and tail feathers are white – between 4 and 5 years old.
