Per Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bald_Eagle Most of North America, including parts of Canada, all of the continental United States, and northern Mexico. The Bald Eagle prefers habitats near seacoasts, rivers, large lakes, oceans, and other large bodies of open water with an abundance of fish. Studies have shown a preference for bodies of water with a circumference greater than 11 km (7 mi), and lakes with an area greater than 10 square kilometers (4 sq mi) are optimal for breeding Bald Eagles.
