The pair of Eagles in Miles City Montana have returned and are repairing the nest for a future family.

You will recall I posted on this pair back in the spring of 2015 when they raised a couple of Eaglets.

I also caught some buffalo at Old Faithful on October 13th as she did her thing.

Just be careful of my buffalo as you travel

Are they repairing it for THEM to use, or for another pair of eagles to use? I can't imagine eagles being benevolent like that....

I believe it is for their use.

If you followed my pictures during this past spring you will remember they raised two Eaglelets to full grown.

I'd suspect this is the same mating pair getting ready to begin a new family sometime this winter-spring. It was fun watching them as the babies hatched and to watch them feeding them as they grew.

I'd like a little help on something about Eagles

I'm by no means an expert on birds or in fact an expert on anything.

I was told that Eagles mate while flying? Is this true. I was told a few years back that they fly very high then mate in the sky while flying or falling back to earth?

Are there any Eagle experts out there that can answer that question?

Quote:
By the age of four or five, bald eagles are already sexually mature during which they look for a mate to have offspring with. The mating season varies by region. In the south, it may occur from the later part of September to November while it may take place from January to March in the Great Plains and Mountain West. In Alaska, the mating season is usually from late March to early April. Contrary to traditional belief, eagles don’t copulate on the air but rather on a branch near their nest or on the ground.
This quote was taken from: http://www.birdhouses101.com/bald-eagle-mating.asp . They may fly high and lock talons on the way down as part of their mating ritual but the actual copulation actually occurs on the ground or in a tree..

gonefishing,

Thanks for the information. I guess what I was told was incorrect, and I appreciate the heads up.
