An eagle's nest is called an eyrie. Eagles normally build eyries high up on cliffs or in tall trees. The inaccessibility of the eyrie protects the small clutch of eggs.
An eagle's natural habitat depends on the abundance of its most common prey and access to its preferred nesting areas. Bald eagles prefer open areas near water and need trees available for nesting. Golden eagles prefer open grasslands and meadows and prefer to nest on cliffs.
Bald eagle nests consist of broken sticks and tree branches, feathers, grasses, moss and fibers. Bald eagles usually find sticks on the ground or take off branches with their powerful beaks.
