This video was taken by Keith Hadsall and Traci Hermes on March 13 on River Beach Drive in Rome, IL. They said, :These same 2 eagles have been in this tree every day for the past week. We think they are a breeding couple, and the eagle that is higher up in the tree is most likely the female. female bald eagles are generally older, and larger, than the males."
