Ronda,

I do not think anyone knows for sure where the eagles go in August and September, however last year Martin Muller added a comment to the Oct. 6th 2013 post that told about a young eagle heading north in August. You can read it here:

What I do know is they usually hang around until their young learn to fly. Since there were no young in the Broadmoor nest this year it seemed like they left sometime in July instead of mid-to-late August. Last year my first sighting of the returning parents was on September 30th. It will be interesting to see when they show up this year.

Have a great day on Union Bay…where nature lives in the city!
