The first egg is here, as of 5:34 today (Thursday, Feb. 18, 2016).
Bald Eagles typically lay their eggs three days apart, so next “vigil” begins Sunday afternoon. Bald Eagles typically lay two or three eggs a season.
Incubation takes 35 days, and no one should truly count their eaglets before they hatch — and fledge in late June.
I will post more about Bald Eagle eggs on Tuesday.
