A female bald eagle will lay two, or sometimes (although rarely) even three eggs each year. Both parents sit on the egg and keep it warm in nests high up in trees. The eggs are incubated for about 35 days before the eaglets hatch. They then live in the nest (which is maintained and expanded on each year, rather than building a new one) for about three months before they have a full set of feathers and are able to fly.
The nests that they use for their eggs can be quite large. A normal sized nest is approximately five feet in diameter. As Eagles often use the same nest every year, the nests can get up to nine feet in diameter and weight two tons.
A female bald eagle lays one brood a year, often 2-3 eggs per brood. Their nests are often 5-6 feet in diameter and 2-4 feet tall, and the eggs are up to 3 inches in length and 2.5 inches in width, and dull white with no markings.
