A Raptor Life Cycle


Northern harriers are raptors. See their life cycle.


A female harrier hides her nest in grasses and other plants. She lays four to six eggs in the nest.


When the chicks can fly, they learn how to hunt. When they can hunt on their own, they leave the nest and build one of their own.


When the chicks hatch, they are helpless. They need their parents to keep them warm and bring them food.


The chicks grow quickly. Soon, their feathers are strong enough for flight. Their parents teach them how to fly.
