The Duke Farms Bald Eagles are now on two eggs. (Click on image for larger view)

The first arrived late Monday/early Tuesday, and the second arrived on Friday around 2:30 p.m., when the temperature was around 15 degrees.Last year, the eagles had three eggs, three days apart, beginning on Feb. 17.

Incubation is typically 35 days. Nothing is certain, especially in the wild.
