In case you missed it …
The female bald eagle at Hays in the City of Pittsburgh, laid her first egg of the season half an hour after sunset on Friday, 11 February 2022 at 6:22pm. As soon as the egg was dry she began incubation.
Her mate roosted nearby and waited for dawn to see the egg and trade places with her. It takes 35 days of continuous incubation before the egg will be ready to hatch.
The Hays female usually lays several eggs, each one 2-3 days apart.
Watch for the second egg to arrive today or tomorrow on PixCam’s Hays Bald Eagle Camera Live Stream.
p.s. Another bald eagle pair is on camera at U.S.Steel’s Irvin Works, 5.3 miles away. See them Live on PixCams’ U. S. Steel Bald Eagle Camera.
