Tuesday, 19 March 2019:
Today is the 35th day since the first egg was laid at the Hays bald eagle nest in 2019. Bald eagle eggs — on average — hatch 35 days after they were laid, so the first egg may hatch today.
Or maybe not. Hatching time varies for bald eagles from 34 to 41 days. Just like baby due dates, the hatch date is rarely spot on.
However, if you haven’t been watching the eaglecam now’s a good time to start.
- Watch the Hays bald eagle nest at Audubon Society of Western PA’s Hays Nest Camera.
- Join the conversation on YouTube or Facebook.
- See the countdown clock for all three eggs at eaglestreamer.org
