The female bald eagle lays a clutch of one to three eggs. Most of the incubating, which lasts five or six weeks, is done by the female, with the male taking an occasional turn. Eaglets are extremely dependent on their parents. They have a tremendous appetite and are in constant need of care and nurturing. The young remain in the nest for 10 to 11 weeks. After 72-75 days, they are ready for their first flight.
