Thanks to Deforestation
Due to Deforestation, these birds now have to search for such wide areas where their large nests can be built. However, they might get visitors from the electricians if in case any fault occurs there. This, in turn, would disturb them and their nestlings might be at risk of abandonment by their parents. Also, they unknowingly live in constant risk of electrocution if any day the tower suffers any fault. White-bellied sea eagles are most vulnerable to disturbance at the beginning of the breeding season. If disturbed, they may abandon their nest and have a lower breeding success rate for the rest of the season.
The large nest of the species ranges in size from an average 1.2 to 1.5 m wide , and is composed of sticks, leaves, grass, and seaweed. Males do most of the nest-building. Nests are reused and added onto every year, so some nests can be as large as 2.5 m wide and 4.5 m deep. White-bellied sea eagle nests are found in tall trees, high on cliffs, or in low bushes.
