Fig. 2

Examples of the four different strategies of movement observed in bald eagles monitored along the north Pacific coast, 2010–1016. Breeders (a) remained near nesting sites year-round, with short distance movements for access to seasonal resources (i.e. autumn). Non-breeding localized individuals (b) engaged in primarily short-distance movements for access to seasonal resources (i.e. spring, autumn) within a distinct range. Non-breeding migratory individuals (c) had directed moves in autumn and spring between distinct summer and winter ranges. Non-breeding nomadic individuals (d) displayed irregular movement patterns with little interannual consistency
