Eagles mate for life, and an established pair will use the same nest for many years. Over time some nests become enormous - they can reach a diameter of 9 feet and weigh as much as 2 tons! The female lays 2 or 3 eggs and both parents share incubation and guard them diligently against predators (such as squirrels, gulls and ravens). While the chicks are small, the parents move about the nest with their talons balled up into fists to avoid harming them.

Both male and female bald eagles participate in caring for the young. The mother eagle usually incubates the eggs and protects the chicks in the nest, while the father eagle provides food.
