Seven and 32 habitat variables describing human disturbance prey presence, water bodies, bird forest continuity, were measured within 500 and 1500 m, respectively, of 82 occupied bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) nests and 88 random sites in Maine. Discriminant function analysis was applied to nest and random sites within river, lake, marine mainland, and marine island habitat types to derive 4 models. Models were tested using cross validation.
