Bald Eagle

Bald eagles have a low fecundity and typically produce one brood of 1-3 round, white eggs per season, but may have replacement clutches if needed.

Bald eagles have a low fecundity and typically produce one brood of one to three eggs per season. Because many of bald eagle eggs do not survive, the birds may have replacement clutches if needed. In California, bald eagles may produce up to 36 young in their lifetime. For males, this is significantly correlated to their body size.

Bald eagle eggs are round to oval and are generally whitish.
