Screen Shot 2016-04-18 at 7.52.58 AMThe first eaglet hatched Saturday, March 26. The second hatched Monday, March 28. The eaglets are now approximately three weeks old.

The young birds stay in the nest for approximately 10 to 12 weeks, until they are large enough and strong enough to leave (fledge). This is typically toward late June.
