Most bald eagle nests are between 1.5-1.8 meters in diameter and 0.7-1.2 meters tall. The eagles share nests, however, adding to them and reusing them until they grow much larger. In Florida, one nest was measured to be 6.1 meters deep and 2.9 meters wide–it currently holds the record for largest nest.
Bald Eagles build huge nests, which are also called aeries. They can measure 5 to 6 feet wide and 2 to 4 feet tall. They are made of sticks, grass, moss, and the like, which both parents gather. The inside is covered with soft, downy feathers in order to make it more comfortable. It sometimes takes three months before the nest is finished. Nests are located in tall trees near the trunk or on cliffs.
