A third egg has been spotted at the bald eagles' nest in Hays, PA. According to Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania, the third egg was visible Monday evening. The first egg was spotted last Tuesday, February 12 and the second egg appeared last Friday afternoon.
This matches the number of eggs the female laid at the Hays nest last year. However, only one egg was viable and hatched. That chick left the nest in June. It takes approximately 35 days for an egg to hatch.
