Research means looking into credible sources, not getting questions answered on a forum. I hope your deadline is not too near!

1.) What times of day are eagles most active?

Answer: they feed most often in the morning, before 11:00

2.) When do they spend the most time flying and when do they spend the most time perched?

Answer: they perch most during midday.

4.) How much teritory do eagles generally cover at a time when they are flying?

Answer: That depends on the quality of the habitat. the better the habitat, the smaller that area needed, and the less the area covered.

5.) How much area does a bald eagles home range generaly encompass?

On the MN River in Burnsville, MN, the birds rarely stray more than 2 miles form the nest. And we have two nests within a mile of each other.
