Bald Eagles are very active right now at Leaning Oaks especially with courtship and nest building activities. We don't have a nest on the property, but there must be one being built nearby as we have been seeing stick gathering again this spring. Most of the rest of the year we see Bald Eagles soaring overhead. They largely disappear in September and October, likely to take advantage of early salmon runs further north on the island or on the mainland.
