Breeding

Red Kites are monogamous and form pairs for life. They breed once a year and they lay 1 - 3 eggs in a nest built in a tree. After an incubation period of 31 - 35 days the eggs hatch and the chicks fledge at 7 - 9 weeks old.

The youngsters will gain their adult plumage at a year old and they become sexually mature at 3 years of age.
