What to Expect


“I usually arrive at our nesting site a few days before Harriett. Together we build, or rebuild, our nest from last year. After a brief courtship (including The Sky Dance), Harriett settles into our nest and continues to make it comfortable. If all goes well, eggs are laid. There will be only one brood each year.”

Age at first breeding: 3-5 years

On average, the period from first mating to egg laying is:

1st Egg 16 days
2nd Egg 19 days
3rd Egg 22 days

Number of eggs: Usually 3
