Maps of tracking bad eagles exist from one area to another. Some adult bald eagles migrate from USA (California) to. Canada and back in a complex way. Migration routes in the Fall somewhat differ from those in the Spring. Satllete telemetry is used to track complex migration patterns.

I wonder if it would be useful to map eagles by area size, or even forest areas to better analyze perhaps some theories about where they choose to live or find it difficult to survice. I've seem quite a few of them here in Florida over the years and they do capture the attention of those fortunate enough to view them.

Ha! That's not a nest in Florida, Robert... it's a treehouse! Eagle nests are very impressive and unmistakeable.
Thanks for a great report -- enocuraging to see progress around this valued and beautiful species.

According the U.S. Wildlife Service, bald eagles were first listed as endangered specieis in 1967. In 2007, the Dept of Interior took them off the list because they are were no longer endangered. To keep track of bald eagle population trends, some states perform analytics.

I actually have only seen a bald eagle in the zoo. In my area we have many hawks but no bald eagles. It is interesting to the dispersion of the eagles, it would be also be interesting to see the trend over time do the lesser states catch up or do the states with more eagles continue to expand their numbers. It's encouraging to see the return from the brink.

The article I linked to in my blog:

I see at least one a week now but that has a lot to do with the fact that I live in one of those dark green states and near a few nesting pairs. Before I moved here I had only seen one two or three times and I spent a whole lot of time in another one of those dark green states.
Their comeback really is a big deal and I'm surprised that the last counts for every state are 8 years old. This is one of those problems with trying to track down data, it can be consistent for years then just fall off completely because someone took up a new hobby, funds were cut or someone decided it just wasn't important anymore.

I would hope analytics would help us see when changes we make are effecting a population. With good analysis, we should be able to spot a trend before it becomes a big problem.
