Bald Eagle, Squamish, British Columbia, Canada 09

Description : Bald eagles reach sexual maturity at 5 or 6 years of age and then form a pair bond and mate for life. After pairing, the birds construct a nest, or aerie, of sticks, branches and other plant material, in the fork of a large tree or cliff side. The nest may be used and added to year after year, eventually becoming a massive structure up to 9 feet (2.7 m) in diameter and weighing as much as 2,000 pounds (900 kg). Females lay a clutch of two, or occasionally three eggs, between November and mid-March. Incubation duties are performed by both parents but primarily by the female. Chicks hatch after a 34 to 35 day incubation.
