Most bald eagles stay with a chosen mate for many years – or a lifetime. Pairs reestablish bonds every year with spectacular courtship displays. The birds lock talons in midair and somersault down together, then glide apart. Nest building begins shortly after courtship. The nest is made of sticks, moss and grass, and can be as large as eight feet across, twelve feet deep and can weigh up to one ton.
