Baby Birdorable: Bald Eagle

If you think our Birdorable birds are cute as adults, what about when they are babies? Here are some baby photos (shared via Flickr) of the Bald Eagle. Bald Eagles build massive nests - five to nine feet in diameter! Both males and females incubate the eggs, which takes about 35 days. Eaglets grow very fast - by three weeks after hatching they will already be a foot tall! By six weeks, they will be nearly the size of their parents. Have a look at these cute baby eagle photos:

Pretty cute, right? Be sure to check out our (adult) Birdorable Bald Eagle gear! If you want to see baby eagles for yourself, there are many Bald Eagle nest cams on the internet, where you can watch eaglets mature from hatchlings to fledglings. Here are a few: Blackwater Refuge; Lake Washington EagleCam; Hancock Wildlife's Sidney Nest. Do you have a favorite Bald Eagle nest cam? Please share it in the comments!
