A Bald Eagle's Life Cycle:)

A Bald Eagle's life is very calm and peaceful. Since Bald Eagle's don't have any natural predators, they can roam the wild without having to worry about other organisms. A Bald Eagle reaches sexual maturity at 4 to 5 years old. Bald Eagles find mates by locking talons together high up in the air and then tumble down to the ground but then break apart at the last minute. Bald Eagles then mate and lay eggs. The eggs hatch in approximately 35 days; they fledge when they are about 12 weeks old. The Bald Eagle eggs are kept in nests found in high trees. Bald Eagle pairs usually mate for life (Except if one of the mates die; Bald Eagles then look for a new mate,) and Bald Eagles reproduce every 1 to 2 years.  A young Bald Eagle usually stays with their parents until they are twenty weeks old. The offspring of a Bald Eagle is well taken care of and learns how to survive and adapt in the wild by their parents.  A Bald Eagle ca live up to 30 years in the wild and even longer in captivity.
