So far there has not been a lot of brooding of the egg as eagles tend to wait until the clutch is complete so eggs will hatch on or about the same day.
In Florida, eggs are laid from November through January.
Five to ten days after a successful copulation, the female lays a speckled off-white or buff colored egg about the size of a goose's.
The second egg is laid a few days later, followed by a possible third.
The 35 days of incubation duties are shared by both male and female, but it is the female who spends most of her time on the nest.
