North Dakota Game and Fish wants you to still report bald eagle nests
when you see them.
The bald eagle population is reviving.
But North Dakota Game and Fish is still asking residents to report eagle
nests, not individual eagle sightings. March and April are the best times to spot
eagle nests because Mom is usually incubating the eggs. The eagle nest is very
big and on big trees. Historically, eagle nests are along the Missouri River but
eagle nests have now been identified in more than half of North Dakota's counties.
They're mostly near streams and mid to large-sized lakes and shelterbelts surrounded
There is an estimated 100 active eagle nests in North Dakota.
Report any eagle nest locations to the North Dakota Game and Fish Department
and do not approach the nests.
