A pair of bald eagles raises eaglets near Lake Oroville.

Scientists from the Department of Water Resources have found a new nesting pair of bald eagles near Lake Oroville

This makes a total of eight nesting pairs of bald eagles in the area.

Scientists have been keeping an eye on ten eaglets, which is the official name for young eagles, according to a news release from the DWR.

Around Lake Oroville and in the Oroville Wildlife Area, people have seen the chicks. In June and July, the chicks usually start to get flight feathers and get strong enough to start flying.

Eagles eat mostly fish, and big bodies of water like Lake Oroville have a lot of different kinds of fish and other food sources like waterfowl, small birds, and mammals.

Eagles love the trees near the water because they are great places to nest and hunt.
